Big Girl Bedding

My little girl will be 17 months old this month, and I've started thinking about what her room will look like once she's out of her crib and in a "big girl" bed.  I'm fortunate enough to have some gorgeous antique twin beds passed down from my great grandmother that I'm going to get to use in her room.  They have beautifully carved headboards with matching footboards, and I want them to be the show stoppers in the room.

Even if I had different beds, I think I'd still want to keep the bedding pretty simple though.  There's something so sweet about predomimently white bedding with a pop of color for a little girl.  I know I want to use a white coverlet with a folded fluffy duvet at the foot of the bed.  I'll keep the sheets a simple white with a colored scallop detail like these.   

For the pillows, I'm thinking of a sham with a matching color border like these, also from Crane and Canopy.

To finish the look, I envision a decorative pillow in the front.  Here are a few of my favorites at the moment.

As you can tell, I'm really loving floral block prints right now.  There's just something so sweet and feminine about them.  Here are all of the sources:

1- On sale for $29.99 and the back side is beautiful too.
2- This watercolor print is also currently on sale for $31 at Layla and Grace
3- A favorite from Serena and Lily for $68
4- I love the muted colored in this kilim option from Etsy -$69.95
5- The priciest of the bunch at $100, this handmade option is gorgeous

To finish off the room, I'd hang this beautiful painting.  I've admired it since I was a little girl and saw it hanging at my grandmother's house.  Impressionism is by far my favorite art movement and the colors in this piece are just so stunning.

I can't wait to see Auden's room to come together this year.  I hope she'll love it as much as me!
