Hello, everyone! Today I'm back to share with you the makeover I gave to my 9 year old daughter's room. A few months ago she came to me and told me that she was done with the hot pink in her room and she wanted a room that was a bit more "mature" looking. I knew that it was time to give her bedroom a look that she would not only love now, but that she would enjoy for many years to come. I spent some time talking to her about the colors she wanted what her requests were for her new space. At the end of our discussion, she and I knew exactly how we were going to change up her space.
I posted about my conversation with daughter on Instagram, along with a picture of her room. To my surprise, later that day, I received an email from the lovely people at Gardner Village in West Jordan, Utah, stating that they would love to help me with her bedroom makeover. For those of you who are not familiar with Gardner Village, here is the description taken from their website...
Stroll brick-lined paths and discover 22 boutique-style shops surrounding the historic Gardner Mill. With the ambiance and charm of an early Utah Village, you'll enjoy shopping and dining in a leisurely-paced setting, just 12 miles south of downtown Salt Lake City in the heart of the Salt Lake Valley. From furniture, home decor, candy, quilts, jewelry, purses, women's and kids' clothing and more, our shops are brimming with fabulous finds for you and your home.
Anyone that has ever been there will tell you that it is every bit as charming as it sounds. Gardner Village is a true gem in Utah and I could not pass up the opportunity to partner with them for Miss J's bedroom makeover. Over the course of a couple weeks, I traveled to Gardner Village to curate pieces for the room from the variety of shops there. Gardner Village has so many incredible shops, and their furniture and home decor shops are truly fabulous. I was able to find so many beautiful items to use in my bedroom design, including the most gorgeous bedding and pillows from Layers Beautiful Bedding, formerly known as The Village Quilt Shop, and a darling dresser from Down to Earth Home. The result is a bedroom for my little Miss J, that is perfect for her now, but will also suit her as she grows older. Take a look...
I had the light blue walls painted Wickham Gray by Benjamin Moore. It is one of my new favorite gray paint colors! The gorgeous chandeliers are from Capital Lighting. The art grouping on the far wall incorporates my little lady's love of France. She is in a French Immersion program at school and is currently obsessed with all that is French. The art pieces depict the Eiffel Tower, a collection of macaroons and some pretty lavender stems. Ooh La La!
I absolutely adore the framed abstract art piece above her bed. It helps give the space the mature feel we were looking for. I also adore the modern shape of her new upholstered headboard. It's details like this that give her room a bit of sophistication.
The other side of the room is used for storage and to create a reading nook for my little bookworm.
I wish you could touch the luxurious bedding I selected from Layers Beautiful Bedding at Gardner Village. The quality is second to none. They had so many gorgeous options for bedding that it was hard to choose! They also had the perfect accent pillows!
We recovered her window cornice and had custom drapery made for the room. The window is now a true focal point in the space. The new rug is a favorite addition to the room.
Miss J requested a chair in her room where she could snuggle up with a book.
I recovered some Target stools in the same fabric as the window cornice for the end of the bed.
A pair of new nightstands and lamps help finish off the bed wall.
The dresser from Down to Earth home is amazing! Not only is it super cute, but the crazy deep drawers provide plenty of storage for this little girl with lots of clothes!
I hope you enjoyed the reveal of Miss J's Room! She loves it so much, and there is no greater reward than seeing her smile from ear to ear when she enters her new bedroom!
