I'm right in the midst of transitioning from baby to toddler room and I must say, this stunner is giving me major kid room goals. If you are a mama to a baby girl or just enjoy a gorgeous wallpaper moment, then this pink space is just for you. Designed by Margie Doyle, this gives our favorite wallpaper nursery (also designed by Margie) a serious run for its money.

The concept for this room popped into my head the second I found out that I was having my first baby girl. I knew that I wanted the space to feel dreamy and serene. A place that I wanted to spend time, and hopefully a place that would promote a good nights sleep!
I have a deep passion for wallpaper, so finding the perfect one was very important to me. Once I found this Designer's Guild pattern however, I immediately knew that it was the one. Because the pattern was so subtle we papered the whole room. The flowers look like a watercolour painting, and truly make it feel like you are walking on a cloud the second you walk into the room.
From there we added the girly pink elements such as the curtains, the Moroccan pouf and the ever-growing collection of dolls. For furnishings I turned to two of my favourite baby stores, Pottern Barn Kids (the change table and bed) and RH Baby and Child (rocking chair). The dresser was actually mine when I was a little girl, and is the perfect place for Olive to display her treasures and books.
The little jewelry box is also a hand me down. Olive loves collecting all of her precious things to store in the little drawers. I love wall-to-wall carpeting in a kid’s room, as it adds a level of padding for floor play, and just generally makes the room feel cozy.
We live in snowy Canada, so cozy is very important to us! Because wall to wall can be a bit dangerous with kids, I layer neutral area rugs and sheepskins on top. These are easily washable and can be easily swapper out if they get destroyed.
Since Olive’s little sister Juniper was born a year ago, she has developed a deep obsession with caring for her own babies’. She loves putting them to bed in her little Design Stuff cot and singing them songs before bed. I couldn’t be happier with this room, and most importantly my girls love spending time in there. It’s a comfortable place for them to play, imagine and grow.
