Hey friends! Today is a pretty exciting day! No, it’s not because I’m revealing the modern floral little girl’s bedroom (but that IS exciting). It’s because tonight we fly into Minnesota with our DAUGHTER to finally be united as a family of FIVE! If you haven’t been following along in our adoption story, I shared about our homecoming trip so far here. I was down to the wire with this room, finishing the final details the day we left for our trip! I started out earlier this month sharing my mood board for the room. Then I shared about the wallpaper that we installed. Today is reveal day!
This room has a sort of unique layout with this cutout behind the door. Thankfully it ended up fitting a twin bed perfectly. I got this bed from my mom, and it’s no longer for sale, but here is a link to a similar one. **This post contains affiliate links** The quilt on her bed was a find at a vintage sale a few years ago. I just love that scalloped edge and all the vintage patterns.
Next to her bed we had room for a small bookcase, and even though the reading nook is just down the hall, this is the perfect spot to store all of our board books.
Above Ysa’s bed I put together a little gallery wall filled with meaningful pictures from our long wait.
The painting was one that our son drew for her early in the adoption process and asked us to hang on her wall! The pictures were taken when we first announced the adoption over three years ago!
Another touch I added to her room was the three strands of garlands above her bed. They’re all from the Target dollar section, and were with the Valentine’s Day items.
The heart garland has little clips on the back, and I decided to hang pictures of our daughter and of us from our two week visit last year. I’m hoping that these pictures will help bring back good memories of that visit.
If you read my mood board post you know that I was struggling to decide between pink or blue curtains. After purchasing both I ended up sticking with the pink curtains. This is the only space that I can go over the top “girlie” with, so I decided to go all out.
Along with the curtains I also wanted to ensure that I had good shades that would completely black out the room for naps. I ended up choosing these Bamboo Shades from Blindster.com and I couldn’t be happier. When they are shut the room is completely black. They also raise and lower easily, and have a great modern look to them. When I get to finishing the boys bedroom I hope to install these in there too!
Her rug is also one that I’ve had for a long time, but I found it still for sale here. In the corner I placed this Grey Armchair that I’ve had for while. It seriously looks good in every room. I’m hoping we’ll spend many hours snuggling there!
Above the chair I hung this print that I’ve had for years. The shop owner has since closed her shop, so sadly, I don’t have a link to share it with you.
Even thought we’ve created this beautiful space for our daughter, I’m not so sure she’ll be interested in sleeping alone. Especially after sharing a room with a bunch of kids at the orphanage! Because of this we placed the trundle mattress on the boys bedroom floor. This way once she’s home we can give her the option of sleeping in either place.
I also just HAD to share this quilt that was made as a gift for Ysa! It was made by a friend of Matt’s mom and matches her room beautifully!
After starting the adoption process three and a half years ago, I can’t believe that we’ve finally been able to decorate a room that she’s going to come home to! I’ve been sharing updates from Haiti on my facebook and instagram, and hope to share some from our homecoming too! If you’re reading this today (Monday), please pray that our flights and travel go smoothly! We should land in Minnesota at 10:50PM, and then head home to Michigan on Wednesday! Thanks so much for reading and following!
