If you’ve been counting, this is officially Marlowe’s one millionth room tour. Maybe more. (You can see her last one HERE) I can’t help it. I mean, the other rooms don’t need change— so it happens elsewhere in the house a bit slower. But she’s a growing kiddo and after we went from crib, to toddler bed, to real bed, well, some things needed to move around too! We haven’t made any huge changes to this space— but the details have made a big improvement! From little things like new, not broken blinds to bigger things, like changing her thrifted rug to a nice pink rug (that she finally loves– she fought me for months before she let me put it in her room!). You know, I go back and forth about it, but I think Marlowe’s room is my favorite room of the house— when it’s picked up anyway 🙂 It’s absolutely packed with things, but it somehow stays pulled together. And it has really beautiful things in it, but t doesn’t feel stuffy, it still feels like (and very much is) a kids room.
We added the drums because once we added the bed we knew we needed a night table but we didn’t want to spend the money or time going out to get one. Welp, Alex the drummer man, thought of the brilliant (and perfect) idea of adding a set of his old drums to her space. We added more baskets for all the blocks and legos. And we moved around the furniture so it could actually fit in the space. It’s bright, it’s airy, and in the mornings you can find me asleep in here myself. It’s just so cozy and bright. Thinking ahead to the teenage years scares the crap out of me, but here now, in this cozy little toddler space— it’s perfect.
