Isabella's Room

So here is Isabella's room (yes, finally) As I said earlier it's out of my normal comfort zone with decorating it but I am really happy with how fun it turned out.  I still need to complete some finishing touches but I figured if I didn't show you all now it might never happen! Please feel free to skip all of the writing and just look at the photos! 
This is the wall the door is on (it's to the left of this painting, the door you see is the closet)
The painting in this picture is what Isabella is named after. It's by James Christensen and it's one of my favorite pieces ever. Uber bought it for me right after we were married and Mum framed it. So I figured at least for now it has to be in her room. 
I've been seeing the "I am a child of God" prints all over the place and I really liked it so I made one in photo shop and had it printed locally. The style is copied from this etsy seller I just color matched the text in mine to the colors in the room.  (please note I made it for personal use only) I actually really wanted to order this print to hang with it but currently she only offers it in 8x10 with is too small.
The mobile which I showed you all here.
The crib skirt fabric is Framed Sea Glass from Anna Maria Horners line LouLouThi. 
I had all sorts of issues in this space since we didn't want to paint and the 9 ft ceiling just made me feel like everything looked blah and short and squat so I started out with this (excuse the iphone photo...also note the bat in the crib... this was before Isabella arrived) I was happy with it but not thrilled. Then late one night while I was up with Isabella I came across this featured on a blog which lead me to this blog seriously could it have been any more perfect?
 So here is my version. I already had the Martha Stewart pinwheels so I had to work with what I had (unfortunately because the party store versions are so much cheaper!)
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this wall! It matches her quilt and brings the color up to the ceiling.

The ottoman from our last post. 
This Begonia was a gift for Isabella. It's doing absolutely gorgeous in her window... The beautiful miniature rose that was also sent, not so much it's gone to live with my mom and I am hoping she can revive it because it was also stunning. 
I couldn't bring myself to get rid of this corner cabinet so it's currently living in her room. The balls and poufs were an addition before the flower wall. That's about 3' of space and it looked bad with nothing there so I decided to make it into a 
NIGHT LIGHT! (update: tutorial here) I don't leave it on all night this is just what I turn on when I come into the room. It gives enough light to change her and see my way around but not enough to wake either of us up. 
I lined the back of the corner cabinet with gift paper from World Market. The pink ribbon is from Martha Stewart's Michael's line a few years back it's adhesive. On the shelves are a bunch of random keepsakes. The stained glass piece is supposed to be hanging... lost one of the pieces of chain in the move. And I still haven't printed pictures for the frames. 
I had these two frames that needed art work so I made up these (based off of these prints here once again for personal use only) not sure if these will stay permanently I just love the song and the design and needed something for now. I want to find hooks to hang under these... someday 
Here's a quick picture of the girl in her room. She's wearing this dress made by Grandma. She is growing so fast! 
So there you have it. It's not done but it's done enough for now. I really want to get on with it and do some other projects... not really sure what yet! 
Hope you all enjoyed. Sorry for being SO LONG WINDED.

  3. IT is SO BEAUTIFUL! I can't decide what my favorite part is: a tie between the pouf, the flower wall and the pink nightlight structure. I wish it was my room!! :)

  8. How did you do the leaves on the wall?

    1. You simply trace a circle and then draw out a leaf V off of it and then you cut out the entire leaf shape and then cut half way into the circle and fold it in on itself to make it 3D. I will try to do a tutorial soon. Hope that is somewhat helpful

  10. Hi Jess,
    Love the floral wall! May I ask how you made the small flowers that are amongst the Martha Stewart ones?

    1. They are just small pinwheels and honeycomb tissue balls from a party shop with a black circle glued to the middle. The honeycomb tissue balls opened half way and glued to a cardboard circle on the back to keep them open.
