Roomspiration Blog Hop: Kids Rooms!

Roomspiration

Shoot...is today my turn for the blog hop?!?!? Dang it, I *totally* forgot!!!

Hehehe...I'm just joshin' with you all, of course I didn't forget!

I'm pleased as pink punch to be taking part in what has turned out to be *the* bloggy party in the good ol' blogosphere!

Have you gone and checked out the previous parties??? Oh-em-gee. If you like interior design (and I know you do!), then this is a smorgasbord of delish interiors!

And today we are going to be showing off our mini-peeps rooms! Y'know, the wee people...the small humans...the mess makers!

KIDS ROOMS!!!

And I say "we" because there is a linky party going on up in here for you to link up your kids rooms and show them off!!!

And I know you all are excited about the big room reveal, right? RIGHT?!? (c;

Without further ado, I present Ms. Skylar's happy place:


Can you tell we enjoy color at our house???

You know what else we like at our house? A great deal...I mean, who doesn't right?

I am a firm believer that it doesn't have to cost a lot to look great (c:

And can you tell I'm an expert photographer? No? Blast.

Here's the run down...

So I'm not generally a cafe length curtain kind of gal, but those pretty babies were on clearance at Tar-jay for less than 5 buckaroos and the color is just phenominal...and also, I don't know if long curtains would actually even look good with that window...and I'm pretty sure I like them.


This happy and colorful bedding was actually a gift from grandma (thanks, ma!), but rumor has it (don't you just love Adele?) that she picked up the set at Kohls for around $35 buck...for the sheets, sham, comforter, and bed skirt!

Major gonga. 
And if you aren't familiar with the word "gonga", you are missing out (c:



This little gallery feature is new to the lil' rugrat's space and I'm pretty pleased at how it came out (can you tell, I'm like patting myself on the back right now...)!

Frames: Large white-Walmart, 2 small white-old frames spray painted white, the "s"-$3 clearance from Hobby Lobby, 2 teal frames-Pottery Barn clearance, less than $10 for both (c: Little ornate frame-Hobby Lobby 50% off

Keep Calm print, I am a Child of God Print and Peacock were won on a blog giveaway from Sugar Fresh, and the flamingo was a free printable from Eastwitching shop



The new and improved Ombre poufs...the other ones didn't survive the move (taps playing in the background)...but I like these even better! They are so quick and easy to make and are so fun and whimsical...make sure you hang them where little hands can't get to them...apparently they also resemble pinatas...



Her cute little bench was a $5 garage sale find and gives some much needed storage for all her crapola treasures. And of course my pillow fettish has to extend to my little baby girl's room...ignore the cheeto marks on the pillows...just focus on the fact that they look darling (c:
 (little teal pillow- hobby lobby $5, xoxo- PB teen, no longer available )c:)

What is on the other wall of her room you say???

Glad you asked! (c:


Her $30 goodwill dresser that I just swapped out the pulls for some cute polka dotted ones from Hobby Lobby (when they were 50% off, natch)...the lamp was a garage sale find, $5 for the pair of them (coat of spray paint for the base and grossgrain ribbon for the shade and viola! Cuteness atop the dresser.), and the mirror is also a garage sale find (if you have been following along for a little while, you might remember it being yellow, but along side the lamp, I like the pink *much* better!)


And I think I would like to end with the shot of the pig (c:

Oh okay, one more shot of the whole shebang:


Now it's *your* turn!

Link up your fun kiddie rooms, I can't wait to see what you all have up your sleeves! (c:

The room is so lovely. I would like to know where you have bought the poufs and how did you hang them... My daughters would loooove something that that! :)

I love all the fun colors! Lucky little girl you have.

Judy said...

So excited for this leg of Roomspiration. Love your daughter's room. The colors are so vibrant and fun. I'm all linked up and off to check out some of the other rooms. My favorite rooms to decorate are kids rooms so I'm looking forward to all of the inspiration. Hope your day is a total success with the party.

Jacqueline said...

Such wonderful inspiration! I''' be working on my boys rooms this winter so I'll be looking for great ideas!

laxsupermom said...

Love your little girl's room! It so bright and pretty! Love the tissue paper poufs! So girly! As the mom of 2 boys, I revel in the girly touches others are able to play with.

Thanks for hosting this party. My kids' rooms are the only ones that are "finished" in the house and this is the only party I've been able to participate in. It's so great to be able to look for inspiration, though, in all the other parties.

Maury said...

This is so great! I love all these rooms. But I probably ought to work on getting kids BEFORE I decorate their rooms... but I sure am tempted with all this inspiration.

I just gave you a Versatile Blogger award! See it: http://afabulesshome.blogspot.com/2011/09/shout-outs.html
If you'll send me your button, then I'll put it in.
