This spring our home project will be converting our daughter’s room into one fit for a princess. She has outgrown her toddler bed and many of her preferences are changing. We want to create a space for her that she loves and that caters to her personality.
Over the weekend she and I spent time together on Pinterest and she saved pictures of bedrooms that she liked (above). After the initial pinning I went back and listed some of the commonalities. There were certain things I could tell needed to be included in the room we are designing. She likes the pink and gray theme. It also became clear that she wants an area devoted to reading. A comfy corner for book reading is important as she is currently learning to read.
Having a space to call her own is very exciting to her. Involving her in the design process is also making her feel independent and important as she gets to assert her thoughts and opinions concerning something that truly matters to her. I’ve been proud of her ideas and I look forward to the finished product this spring.
