Emmy's Room Reveal

I am so excited to show ya'll  Emmy's room!!!! When I get an idea in my crazy brain, it is all I can think about until it has come to pass!:)
I have to admit though, when we got the first coat of this blue up on the wall, I was freaking out a little bit.

But I knew once all the elements came together it would all work out.

Now Miss Emmy has her very own big girl room!


A room that Mommy doesn't want to leave because  she is in love!

With the sweet little girl who abides there,

And, the way It makes her feel happy and childlike when inside.
I could have never pulled this off without the help of my friend Amber, who I called 100 times a day to bounce my insane ideas off of,


And Vinyl Silhouettes, for their amazing custom vinyl!

And a sweet hubby, who I know secretly thinks my ideas may be a little over the top, but goes along with every single one!


I couldn't be happier with the outcome!

Now on to other daughters room!:)

And because I love before and afters, here is a picture of the room before.

I am linking this post to my friend Jen's weekend wrap up party at Tatertots and Jello

To Wendy's Frugal Friday Party over at The Shabby Nest

And to Kimba's DIY party over at A Soft Place To Land

Where did you put the cute pink tray with the silhouette?

Where did you find the mirrors? Love them.

Nellie's Cozy place said...

Oh Wow, is all I can say! It is truly delightful and beautiful and full of femininity! You both look so cute having a tea party together.
Loved all the pics of your two, they were very sweet! Mommy you outdid yourself!! When my daughter was lil we used to redo her room every summer just for something fun to do.
We didn't always repaint, but we would do some things to make a major change in there. New bedspreads and curtains, change the furniture around. We always had so much fun doing it! and she loved it! Which I am sure you lil one does too! She is a cutie by the way, just like her Mommy!
Have a great weekend hon,
Blessings, Nellie

Jill said...

This is the COOLEST little girl's ever! Fabulous!

beckaboots said...

Great job! I love the colors that you chose. Very bold and girly!

Debbie's Garden said...

Very Big Girl room! Adorable. I know what you mean about freaking out when you painted the blue. I change rooms often with paint. But the time I painted my bedroom red AND it took like 4 coats.. I was near tears with fear. I hated it, but was exhausted and didn't want to paint it again. But when I put everything back in, hung drapes, etc. It was wonderful. I think when you're focusing on just the walls.... its scarey.

Candy Bello said...

wonderful! great colors!

Wow, love the blue. Funny thing my daughters room is almost exactly the same. Tiffany blue walls, black and white damask bed spread with hot pink sheets and pillows. And did I mention two chandalier vinyls on the wall. You have excellent taste! And yes first coat of blue I was freaking out myself.

Katherine @ Grass Stains said...

I can totally understand why you would have freaked out a little about the blue, but it ended up looking amazing! I have three boys so I don't get to decorate rooms like this ... it looks like it's so much fun! Great job.

rachelM said...

My teenage daughter saw the color of the walls and said that was the color she wanted. WOuld you care to share the color and who carries it. We have decided to redo my DD room for her b-day. Thanks for your inspiration

Rachel @ La Bella Bungalow said...

Emmy's room is GORGEOUS! What a creative idea. I love it!

Danee said...

Really fun. Could you tell us where the polka dot bedding is from?I think a lot of us would like a run down of where things are from in case we are trying to get the same look.
Thanks

Lee-Ellen Van Voorhis said...

Love this room! My daughter has picked out the same bedspread so you've given me some great ideas. Can you tell us the name of that blue color??

Laura said...

TOO STINKIN' CUTE!!!! Seriously, how cute can you get? Emma must love it!

I am the same way with the getting an idea and not being able to stop thinking about it until I've made it happen. Right now I have 30 ideas going thru my brain, and it's hard to get anything done (you know, like laundry...)

Jenglamgirl said...

undomestic chica said...

It looks amazing! And it's not too "little girl-y" so she'll get years of use out of it

Shauna said...

The room is amazing! I love the vinyl above the bed. I'm not usually a huge vinyl person but it's clever and perfect. So cute! And the pictures really do need to be in a magazine. It was fun to meet you at Brenna's!

ShoppeGirls said...

Jamie Y said...

Love it! Especially b/c it's a color that will work when she's a little older too. Nice job!

Morgan said...

What an amazing room! I really like the black mirrors next to the little table. The blue paint was a great pick too! Your little girl must be thrilled!

Leah said...

Sweetwater3 said...

Hello, two of my girls will be sharing a room (12 and 15 years old) in our new house. They have been looking for room ideas and paint colors and would like to know what paint color you used. We all loved your beautiful room. If you could share the paint color they would appreciate it! Thanks so much!
