Room Sweet Room

I skimmed through the latest HGTV magazine while at the grocery store yesterday and came across designer Ramey Caulkins’ daughter’s bedroom.

“I totally paused”

So cute.

Without sounding like a pedophile, I love childrens’ rooms. I sort of wished I only got to decorate those.

They allow you to get bold with the color and pattern choices, and just all around permit fun.

The other day I told TH, I think we’re having a girl.

He said, I think so too.

Granted I’m not pregnant nor are we even trying, but maybe I do have motherly instincts. They’re called crazy.

And did I tell you TH thought I was pregnant because I wasn’t drinking like my usual self?

Me: Um, but I’m still drinking.

TH: Yeah, but I heard you can have a glass a day.

Me: Not of margaritas.

So yeah, no baby but this room is going in the, I think I’m going to have a girl file folder.

Here’s the same image taken from the designer’s website.

Glad they zoomed out and shot that green chair. I love the look of the vintage-esque fabric. We also get a glimpse of the cowhide rug and bamboo light fixture. I like the styling of the dresser better in this photo. And did you notice the bedside table is striped in this image? Two twin beds is a great idea for sleepovers with her best friend.

A little girl’s room that doesn’t feel too childish and can evolve with her when it’s time make grown up changes.

And speaking of TH, if you’ve ever wondered his perspective about my blogging, he’s the one guest posting today on Victoria’s blog, vmac + cheese on her series, The Man Behind the Blog.

There have been countless TH mentions on my blog, now get to know some of his thoughts.

Happy Wednesday!

    I actually el oh eled at your exchange regarding pregnancy. TH is hilarious so I can’t wait to go see what he has to say on his guest post. And this might be my favorite child’s room ever. Let’s refer back to it in 10 years for my future children.

    Oh and I also acronymmed my blog name because I’m too lazy to type out Lonely Wife Project anymore.

    I love children’s rooms too. They are so fun and never difficult to infuse lots of color and pattern, but I also think a neutral kids room so can be so nice too. That dresser looks very similar to the one in our bedroom that is in desperate need of a paint job.

    Oh! So cute! I hope you have a girl! It’s fun (for now…talk to me in 10 years).

    I was like, rolling on the floor just seconds ago and now I’m wiping tears from my eyes from laughing so hard! Isn’t it awesome how the menfolk say things before they’ve thought them all the way through??? (c; Hilarious. And that kiddo is one lucky duck because that room is *amazing*.

    I loved TH’s feature!

    Oh and my jaw dropped when I read the part about having a girl. Someday, someday.

    Wait, no one told me you couldn’t have tequila while pregnant!! J/K. I love kids rooms too, but boys are definitely not as fun as girls’ rooms to decorate. Sometime I secretly wish I had a girl just so I could decorate her room! I saw TH on Vmac and cheese. Loved his answers, but especially the one about followers not being a measure of success. He’s a keeper.

    Such a great interview with your man, Irene. It’s so nice to get his perspective. I’m happy he confirmed that you ARE funny. As Emily above pointed out, TH made a great point when he noted that followers shouldn’t be a measure of success (note to self).
