Ivy’s BIG GIRL bed!

November 11, 2015


I am so excited about this! I’ve been ready to get Ivy out of her crib, albeit the napping issues she’s having I was a tad nervous, we went for it anyways! She’s 2 now and I was ready to cuddle into a bed with her during story time before bed and swoon over how adorable and teeny she looks in a big bed :)

I started looking at beds and I really wanted to keep with the white look she has in her room. She had the Jenny Lind crib and I love the spindle look, but I also really liked a new modern look. I came up with these three!

We eventually decided on the Jenny Lind bed! I loved the dainty pretty look of it for her crib so I knew I would love it for her bed also! And we went straight to the twin. It also comes in a toddler bed, full, and queen, and even a doll bed!! SWOON! We also got the guardrails just in case she rolls out of the bed. She moves quite a bit in her crib so this is a safety precaution.

Next, BEDDING!!! This was the fun part! Ivy’s room has a pink wall (color is Amaryllis by Sherwin Williams) and the accents in the room are mint, coral, and other pinks. So I wanted to keep in that scheme of colors. If you’ve ever seen the Land of Nod catalog, I love how they pattern play and mix and match bedding and pillows. I went with this perfect mermaid quilt, it’s so cute! And I was obsessed with The Little Mermaid as a kid, sooo I’m kind of living vicariously through Ivy :) For sheets, I went with the mod botanical stripe sheet set to add a little pink to it. I also got a couple mix and match pillow cases – the pattern party case, the I heart case, and a pink ruched throw pillow for fun. Add a BlaBla doll and it’s complete!

I love how it turned out! And Ivy absolutely LOVES it! She’s so funny!
