Macaron Inspired Girls Bedroom Makeover

Post by Mindy Cone of Creative Juice

Macaron-Inspired Girls Bedroom MakeoverThis year for my daughter’s birthday I bent the rules a bit. I have always said that Aubrey would be allowed sleepovers until she was ten…but when her best friend (named Aubrey too!) was moving across the country shortly after her 6th birthday, I wanted something special that they could always remember together. Neither of them had ever had a sleepover before, and they were absolutely giddy over the idea!

We recently purchased a new big girl bed for Aubrey with a trundle and this sleepover would be the first time we put it to use. I started to search for some bedding and was over the moon when I saw The Confectionary Bedding collection! I am a macaron fanatic you guys. No joke – I literally wrote a macaron cookbook. There could NOT be a more perfect bedding for my daughter! The colors were fun, bright, and before I knew it, her room was macaron inspired as well as the theme for her birthday party!

For her room, I focused on the pink and teal from the confectionary quilt as well as the gold from the confectionary sheet set. I love the mix of macarons and hearts and tried to carry that theme through the room as well. We created a little reading nook and added some cute decor over her bed.

She was very excited to incorporate her paintings so we chose a few pieces and had those framed. I love how they turned out and she is so proud of herself! I created two heart canvases using metallic & pink cardstock cut with my cricut machine and glued directly to a canvas – which was a miniature version of the dessert table backdrop I created for her party. One of my personal favorite pieces on her wall is the beautiful hand drawn macaron art print. It was a gift to me while on my book tour and I am so happy to have found the perfect home for it in her room. The custom wooden ‘Bonjour’ sign was inspired by Bonjour throw pillow and was the perfect compliment to the decor.

You can see the party here. While it wasn’t practical to have all six of them spending the night on our first attempt at a sleepover – I still wanted them to feel special and included. Each of the girls received custom matching pajamas and eye masks, ate yummy desserts, played games, and had a fabulous afternoon together. While they wouldn’t all be sleeping at my house that night, they would each be in their own beds wearing matching pajamas! We planned on having her friend Aubrey return that evening for the sleepover – a strategic mom move knowing they would be tuckered out from the party and sleep soundly!

When it was time for bed we went through our normal routine and then let Aubrey call home to talk to her mom and dad before bed. I was nervous we would get to this point and have a bit of cold feet but they snuggled up in their beds and fell asleep after a few minutes of giggles! Even though they have moved miles away from us now, it is a memory they will always cherish together!

Shared Girls Room Refresh by Lay Baby Lay

Shared Girls Room Design Refresh by Lay Baby LayI just finished up a refresh on my shared girls’ room. Vivi had been asking for pink walls, and since we have moved things around a few times trying to figure out the best arrangement as she grew, we had various scuffs and holes on the wall. Starting with a fresh coat of paint can be so, well, refreshing. It makes everything feel cleaner, brighter, and more organized (and who can’t appreciate that if you have toddlers?). We went with Sherwin Williams’ Angelic for the paint color, and I was excited to incorporate some Land of Nod kids bedding (as well as other adorableness!) for a happy, whimsical look.Shared Girls Room Design Refresh by Lay Baby Lay 2We are going to move Brigette into her big sister’s room when she transitions to a big girl/toddler bed, so I wanted bedding that coordinated without being too matchy. One of the things I adore about The Land of Nod bedding is that you can mix just about whatever combination you want, and it will look perfect together.

We added in a bonjour heart pillow and a geometric sun pillow for extra color and some extra cushion for reading.

I love toddler sized beds – they are the cutest, and leave lots of room for playing! We added on that cute mint bonjour heart pillow and head in the clouds pillow along with a pom pom pillow (I love all the little poms!!) which makes her bed a nice little divan for reading or playing during the day.

The pink is so happy and bright, and Vivi loves to make up her bed with her fun collection of pillows! Be sure to visit Lay Baby Lay to see more details from this room and how we incorporated more great pieces from the Land of Nod! (like the heart shelf, gold lamp, and neon nightstand shown above!)

Thanks so much to The Land of Nod for helping us make such a dreamy space for our girls!

Girls’ Shared Space Design Ideas – Nursery & Bedroom

Design by Sara Polacek of The Land of Nod’s Design Services Team

Amanda was looking for ideas around a shared space design for her girls, giving a fun update for their combined nursery and bedroom. She was looking for a functional space with lots of girly elements and wanted to use a bed she already owned. To balance the pink, we incorporated grey and black accents. The flokati rug, pillows and grey pouf add texture and interest to the room. The best part about this space is it will be easy to update as the girls grow.  Accessories and artwork are the most cost-effective way to switch up a room!
