The first room I want to focus my efforts on is Rowan’s room. Besides minimizing the impact of the transition, there are so many reasons why I want to start fresh in my girlie’s space. On Lee Avenue, Rowan’s room was decorated like a nursery and full disclosure: it wasn’t my favourite. It had moss coloured walls and felt totally uninspired. I am also trying to embracing “the big girl stage”. In April, Rowan climbed out of her crib, giving herself a huge goose-egg on her head and her mama a heart attack to boot. Until we moved, Rowan slept with us in our bed. Spoiler alert: it wasn’t fun! Although I loved lying beside my girlie, I didn’t enjoy her trashing limbs or feet in my face. A space to call her very own is just what the doctor ordered for everyone.
During the open house, I immediately imagined Rowan growing up in this space. I loved the wall colour and decided to keep it the same until she tells me otherwise. Does this make me the laziest home owner on the face of the earth? Sure, but I prefer to keep things simple. I spied these cute amethyst sheets at target and thought they would be great for the space.
Right now, R’s clothes are hung in the closet, her big girl bed is assembled and decor ideas are swirling around in my head. We need to unpack more of her books and toys as well as hang some art. For now this room is functional and put together. Oh and as for the transition, as I mentioned Monday. Rowan’s been a champ. She’s slept in her own room since we moved in. Fingers crossed, it stays that way. This mama needs all the beauty sleep she can get! Haha!
