Transforming a Nursery into the Coolest Ever Toddler Bedroom

The Fashionable Hostess knows her way around a well designed interior. And time and again, the proof is in the pudding. From her stunning home tour, to her wildly chic office and now this toddler bedroom for son, Brooks, we're officially Team Amanda. And if ever there was a time where I fell in love with a kid's bed, it would be now. Can you eve deal with that goodness?!?
It all started because we knew our two and half year old Brooks had outgrown his crib (see a before here), which then led to the idea of transforming his room from a nursery to a toddler room.
While I loved the baby blue color on the walls I wanted to update to a grey color that would be a good fit in his room for several years. And while I love the look of a leaning bookshelf, Brooks really needed a bigger shelving unit to house his favorite books. Then our rocking chair is nearly four years old {and has endured two babies} and it shows! Lastly, I never really decorated the walls the way I had intended… so long story short I needed an update but didn’t really have the time to put in the work.
So I decided to work with the RH Baby & Child Design Team {they have an amazing design service!} which started with a brief talk over the phone, explaining my vision - big boy bed, everything I mentioned above, and a clean palette. The designer asked everything from what furniture we currently have to what we would prefer to have, to what “interests” my son Brooks, to what he likes to do in the room.
They then came to my house for an in-home design consultation. They showed up with tools to measure the space, catalogues, and swatches. I showed them pictures of the kids and showed them around the rest of my home so they understood our vibe. Immediately I knew I was in good hands.
The next step was meeting with them to see what they had put together (which came out better than I could have imagined!!). Lastly was a relaxing installation day! And now we are in love!!
