Pink and turquoise came kind of naturally, my favorite color is turquoise and so I naturally gravitated toward it. My 7-year-old’s favorite color is pink and she begged for it to be included.
The room really started with the quilt you see hanging on the wall. My mother-in-law makes each grandchild a quilt. When I was pregnant with our second daughter, I had some crazy quilt ideas. I talked them through my with in-laws and this is what they came up with. My father-in-law designed it and my mother-in-law created it. She hand embroidered every single on of those cranes. It turned out even better than I could have possibly imagined. It was originally supposed to be the blanket on her bed, but the second my husband and I saw it, we both fell in love with it and couldn’t bear to let it drag it all over the house. It hangs on the wall above her crib so she can see it every day and enjoy it.
The I was afraid the room was going to have too much pink since my older’s daughter’s bed has a pink quilt, so I went with a turquoise rug from Target and a turquoise baby sheet for the crib.
The paper crane mobile in the corner is one of my very favorite parts of the bedroom. My brother and I made it together when I was pregnant and all you need for it is some paper, some string and a embroidery hoop. You can find the complete instructions here.
I bought a turquoise IKEA cart for doll clothes storage and spray painted the doll bed turquoise to match as well. It just so happened that my doll house from my child hood had a turquoise roof, so it fit perfectly in the room too.
I absolutely love how this room turned out. It is probably my favorite room in my house! Coming up tours of my craft room and my hallway library!
