Penelope's Room Decor with a house update!


I. AM. SO. EXCITED!!!!!! We will FINALLY get to start packing up and moving into our home on January 31st - Less than a week away! Believe it or not, it has been exactly TWO years today (Jan. 25th) that we started the whole building process. 
The past 2 years seem like a blur but thanks to having a baby, this last year has FLOWN by.... Thank y'all for putting up with my nonstop picture updates - Needless to say, we are way too excited for this!

I am even more excited to dive in and start decorating! This will basically be our very first home that I can customize COMPLETELY. I will definitely do posts about each room as we go along.. I plan to take it slow and try to tackle one room at a time. I also want to address the previous blog I did about Penelope's nursery... At the time, I had this vision of beautiful creamy-whites and a splash of grey here and there but when I went to buy all of the stuff (and thanks to Pinterest) I quickly realized that I may not have another baby girl and this could be my only shot at having all of the pink and pretty colors that I could imagine, SOO, I decided to go with all kinds of glam for her room. I bought all of her furniture and bedding from Restoration Hardware and I am REALLY happy with the quality of absolutely everything.
 We purchased the Adele Crib, along with the Velvet bedding collection in the color DOVE. We painted her room in Melted Ice Cream by Benjamin Moore and the trim & crown molding were painted in Vanilla Milkshake by Benjamin Moore as well. I plan on adding soft-white, sheer curtains to the window and I HOPE that I'll come across the perfect amour when we go furniture shopping within the next few weeks in order to complete the entire space.
Here is everything we have so far, hopefully next week I'll be able to do an updated room blog once it's all complete.

This whole process has been so bittersweet because we never set up a real nursery due to us building the house but I'm looking at this with the glass half-full and I'm actually so happy that I had the extra time to decide on colors and was able to pick the perfect furniture to fulfill all of my ideas.
 I can't wait to watch the transformation her room will undergo throughout the years... But 
one step at a time because I'm definitely needing all the time possible to fully absorb every single stage! XO



  1. I'd be trampled if all sites gave articles like these awesome articles.contemporary wallpaper borders

  2. I admire what you have done here. I love the part where you say you are doing this to give back but I would assume by all the comments that is working for you as well. GarageDoorRepairTarzanaCA
