Ava and Aura's bedroom is finished and I'm so excited to share the transformation photos with you! When we moved into our new home in San Diego, I told my girls I would create a "big girl" room for them, so this has been something they have been looking forward to! When I asked Ava if she had any requests for their new room, Ava said she wanted pink walls and fairies. As I began brainstorming the overall design, I decided on white furniture with an accent wall to balance out the pink. I was picturing white wallpaper with a floral print. While searching for a pattern that caught my eye, I came across this Lydia wallpaper from Loomwell Home Goods and instantly knew it was the right fit. I was sure that my little princesses would love it!
The wallpaper has just the right amount of white and floral print, coordinating perfectly with the furniture and light pink walls. It was also super easy to put up! It arrived in adhesive rolls that are removable and damage free! You can watch our installation project here.
My next step (well actually my husband's) was putting together Ava and Aura’s bunk beds. When I was in search for their beds, I wanted a classy, feminine design with curved headboards and footboards. When I came across Maxtrix Kids Furniture, I loved their styles! The Twin Low Bunk Bed matched exactly what I envisioned and I immediately fell in love with the molding details. There are so many custom options to choose from it's amazing! Their team of staff was excellent with communication and answering questions. The bunk beds arrived in a total of 11 boxes, making it easier to stay organized with the assembly process. The wood and design of the beds is very high quality too! It didn't take my husband long to put them together because the assembly wasn't complicated. My father in law came over and quickly helped him stack and secure the beds. We can reconfigure the beds in the future if we decide to too, which is another major perk in choosing Maxtrix Kids. I would absolutely recommend investing in their furniture! Ava and Aura were so excited to see their beds set up once it was almost finished being put together. Just look at their faces! ;)
My girls were thrilled to get their new mattresses to sleep in! We chose the Revive 2.1 mattresses from Custom Comfort Mattress. They sure are comfy!! The Revive 2.1 expertly combines inner tufted cotton with a thick comfort layer, quilted plush top, and conforms to your unique contours. This cushiony comfort layer is built on a medium-firm coil core and finished with a plush quilted top for both lasting support and ultimate comfort. Now, I don’t mind when they want me to lay in bed with them! Haha! Custom Comfort provides high quality, double-sided mattresses, amazing customer service (including free delivery in Southern California) and affordability! They have so many great options for a wide range of budgets. Next up was bedding. I’ve been wanting to get my girls Beddy’s (bed ease) bedding since I learned about it last year. Creating this space for my girls was the prime opportunity! Especially since Beddy's is ideal for bunk beds. The entire bedding set fits on the mattress like a fitted sheet. It zips together on both sides like a sleeping bag, has a quilted cotton exterior and a cozy mink interior. The unique concept makes it so much easier for my girls to make their own beds, a huge bonus as a busy parent! Ava was away at Disneyland with her grandparents when we put their bedding on, so Aura was excited to surprise her with it when she got home :). They are both ecstatic about being able to easily make their own beds now too! I chose two of the chic white sets, blushed throw blankets and vintage blushed ruffled shams. I love the way it looks against their floral wallpaper and couldn’t be happier with it! Check out the video of it here. When I searched for a dresser to match their bunk beds, I came across Million Dollar Baby Classic and found their Foothill/Louis style (in white). Once I saw it, I knew it was exactly what I was looking for! It has elegant molding, power coated steel drawer glides, and six spacious drawers that provide practical storage in a sophisticated silhouette. It's also very sturdy and well made! The delicate metal knobs (pictured above) are another great feature on this dresser. Although, Ava really wanted “diamond” knobs, so I ordered some to put on and I love the way they look on the dresser because It really adds to their overall theme. The dresser area is also where I decided to incorporate the fairy theme. I had beautiful paper flowers custom made to hang on the wall above it. Miprimabelle makes the most amazing paper flowers and she is so sweet! She has made me flowers in the past (which are now in the nursery) and I loved those so much, I wanted some to match Ava and Aura’s new big girl room. Once I chose the wallpaper print, I sent photos of it and told her some of my decor ideas, then she created these gorgeous flowers! <You can use coupon code ASHLEYXMAS18 for 20% off at Miprimabelle until 12/22/18> I added a couple lanterns and small figurines to the dresser top (a fairy and a bunny holding a tiny mushroom). I also found the cutest mushroom shaped fairy house night light from Little Belle Light. I chose the pink and gold, but they have several cute color combinations. They are beyond adorable and my girls absolutely love theirs! It surely unites the magical fairy feel to their space. I love how everything came together for Ava and Aura’s new bedroom. The previous owners had the room painted navy blue, with gold trim mirrored closet doors. Click here to see the before photo. I'd say we made quite the transformation and I think I accomplished making their dream room come true. You can also click here to see a quick video tour. I hope you enjoyed seeing the photos of how Ava and Aura’s room turned out! Thanks for following along!
