Modern Shabby Chic Bedroom

If you know me at all you know I had a wish to decorate a little girls room. Being a boy mom and loving to decorate, it was just on my list of things to do. So, when my cousins asked me to help them with their little girls’ room, the answer was a no brainer. YES, OF COURSE, I’LL HELP!!! They were super cool about it too, totally let me take the wheel and do what I wanted. I can happily check it off the bucket list, that at least I got to do this once! I hope you all like it as much as I do. I’m calling it Modern Shabby Chic because it is just that. Some of the art work and the wall paper is more on the modern side and then we paired it with chalk painted furniture, pretty blush pinks, and some romantic accents. The furniture was actually Vivi’s moms when she was a little girl. I gave it a fresh coat of paint and it’s like brand new! I love how this room turned out and it will grow with her for years to come. I think that’s so important with kids rooms. As a nursery, I can understand it being age appropriate. However, once you convert to the big kid bed I think it’s really important to find that balance of a fun and safe sanctuary that will grow with them for many years.

Our scheme ended up being black, white, pink and accents of gold. It fell together really well. All the sources and paint color are listed, so keep reading! 

Let’s talk about this bedding. This is by Beddy’s Bed in the Vintage Blush. Click here to check it out. So, little Vivi is 3 and is making her own bed! How cool is that? Beddy’s specializes in making bed sets that go on like a fitted sheet and then they zip on the sides. So convenient and they are all adorable too. I know a few people with these sets now and they are all obsessed with them. I am too, to be honest. I wonder how hubby would feel about me re doing my boys’ rooms….again! 😉


Two things made me want this sign above the bed. One, Vivi has such a beautiful spirit about her, she truly belongs amongst the wild flowers. Second, I feel like it goes well with the awesome wall paper! I like finding ways to decorate that have meaning and are also practical in the space. So, #winning. You can check out William Rae Designs Etsy shop by clicking here. Speaking of that wall paper, let’s look at that…

I love it sooo much!!! It’s fun, whimsical and easy to install! My husband and his cousin had it done in a few hours. The best part, it peels right off. This is made by Walls Need Love it is their Sketch Floral Print and we actually ordered it in the mural, not the wall paper strips. They go on the same though. The difference is that the wall paper would have been a repeated pattern, where as the mural is one large picture. For bigger spaces, order the murals, for smaller accent walls I would suggest the wall paper. Unless the print can be repeated, but for this size wall and this floral print, the mural was the better option. They have so many awesome prints and murals. It’s coming back friends, wall paper is the new accent wall!

How cute are the Unicorn Whispers hanging on the tent!? These are made by my friend Alicia at The Dancing Tapestry. I mean, first of all, they are called Unicorn Whispers. That makes them adorable no matter what they look like! I think they added the perfect touch to the reading tent. Vivi loves them! When I first brought them over she thought I brought her jewelry. She had them on her wrists and was twirling around. Total magic in the eyes of a 3 year old. The Dancing Tapestry has a lot of really awesome wall hangings, you can check out her Etsy shop by clicking here.

Well, I hope you love her room as much as we do! Below are a few more sources for you, and as always if you have any questions, just shoot me an email!
