It’s a long time coming, but hopefully worth the wait! If you’ve been following me for at least (ahem) a year, you know I’ve been slowly but surely working on transitioning my daughter’s nursery to a big girl room. While I didn’t want to have to get new of everything, I definitely wanted to tie in a “cute bohemian” theme somehow, some way. Lo and behold, with the help of an elephant lamp, a vintage peacock headboard, a D.I.Y. canopy, John Robshaw, Jonathan Adler, and a last-minute kantha ikat quilt purchase*, I was actually able to pull it off! My FIRLs Irene and Sabra came to the rescue to style and photograph the space, and I am THRILLED with the result, as is Leighton (clearly!). I hope you are too! Sources below…

  1. So precious and adorable! I love how it all came together! And I will be doing that DIY when my daughter moves to a big bed!

  2. Erika, it’s beautiful!!! Leighton is one lucky little lady! There isn’t a thing I don’t love, but that bench area upholstered in Celerie Kemble’s fabric is adorbs! The wait was worth it 😉 have a fab weekend!!

    1. I couldn’t believe it when I found it as we were walking to a restaurant for dinner, in an alley! Bought it on the spot. My poor husband had to strip it, and then paint it 5 times to cover the dark wood!

  3. What a fun space! I love the window seat. Between the canapé and the window seat, I don’t think I’d ever hang out anywhere else as a child! Great job Erika!

  4. Erika it came out SO well! I’m almost done with Mila’s room as it turns out and went for a bohemian feel as well. It’s one of my favorite rooms in our house! 🙂

  5. Just catching up to this post and all I can say is WOW. So many darling touches. Especially loving the bleeker fabric on the window seat and that elephant lamp! It’s evident that a lot of love went into that room. Leighton is a lucky girl!
