L’S ROOM PROGRESS "Cute Bohemian"

I’ve slowly but surely been working on Leighton’s big girl room, adding and adjusting as I go. I’m hoping to tackle a bed tent canopy DIY this weekend, and then I *think* I’ll be ready to photograph it, finally! The current inspiration and board…

I found a similar headboard to the below, but I think I’m keeping it white. Would love to find a quilt like this:


I splurged on John Robshaw duvet on clearance and a colorful Jonathan Adler pillow for her bed. No regrets, it absolutely finishes the room! Again, a quilt…



I’d love to find a fun rug like this! (I have white mini Bertoia chairs in her play area, and contemporary white shelving is a must.)



I’ve already created a little gallery wall of her artwork, sparse just like this. She loves it just as much as I do!


What I also love about the rooms above are the modern touches (especially lighting).

So here’s what hers is shaping up like:

(See v.1 here and v.2 here, plus more big girl room photos.)

Definitely would love to find a quilt and rug, but that may take awhile.

I’ve shared peeks on Instagram, and I hope to take “official” photos very soon…finally!

Desiring an online space to explore well-rounded, inspired content in all topics she loves most, Erika created 'The E List' (formerly the Small Shop blog) in 2010. When not enjoying an “occasional" glass of wine and wanderlusting for even warmer climates, Erika can be found sharing laughs with friends and family, and trying her very best to keep up with her 6-year old daughter (yet failing miserably).

  1. Already loving the sneak peeks! The gallery wall you’ve started is such a good idea. I love the thought of framing up and highlighting kids artwork vs. hanging on the fridge for a hot minute and then filing away. Really helps make the space theirs.

  2. I think you just defined my new stile! You know I’m all about all things cute and now I’m trying to incorporate a boho vibe. Her room is going to be so great and it’s going to serve as my inspiration. 🙂

  3. Can’t wait to see the entire bedroom!!!
    So funny because I’m working on a girl bedroom too and I found two similar peacock headboards 🙂
    I love them, they’re so gorgeous!
    Anyway, I’m sure that your daughter’s bedroom will be as precious as her ?
