Polka Dots, Pom Poms & Moroccan Blankets





My absolute favorite change in Chloe's little room is her bedding!  Lets be honest… this kid loves sparkles & pink, total girl.  But wanting to avoid the obvious "Girl Room" stereotypes we looked a different direction and incorporated touches of her favorites in unexpected ways.  

After learning that this kid sleeps so much better with a quilt vs a duvet, I immediately moved our Pom Pom Quilt from Ballard Designs into her room.  I've said it before, this quilt is so soft!  I also brought in my favorite Polka Dot Sheets.  I picked them up at Homegoods a few years back, but have found similar ones here if you are interested.  The bed was looking good, but was missing a little something.  And then I found MindaHome.  One of my favorite things about blogging is sharing new sources with you all & you need to check this one out!  MindaHome is a gorgeous shop featuring one of a kind products that are all handcrafted to perfection.  They import the most beautiful textiles from India and create unique items to suit any interior.  They also donate part of the proceeds from the items purchased.   

I had fallen in love with Moroccan Wedding Handira Blankets a while back & instantly knew this was the touch of texture & sparkle that Chloe's bed needed.  This vintage blanket is decades old & was actually once worn by a bride.  The story alone is a fairytale! The handwoven blanket features strips of silver metal sequins for the perfect "sparkle" factor.  We fold it down at night for sleeping, but Chloe thinks her new blanket is just magical.

I also adore the Lumbar Pillow as well… that little touch of pink in the handmade Pom Poms really brought the look together.  MindaHome creates these pillows using an Oscar de la Renta Boucle fabric with slight metallic threads (again, more "sparkle")  It's the perfect place to snuggle up for a bed time story.

I love the fact that between her Vintage Brass Bed & the Handira Blanket she has so much history in her room & we have created heirlooms to pass on as well.

And for those of you thinking, all of this white in a kid's room?!!  There is no way it can stay clean!!!  I have to admit, that Chloe has always been a very careful kid, and is very considerate of her surroundings.  Had it been any different, other choices would have been made.  Believe me!!

  3. This is beautiful! I'm in the process of redoing my little girl's room and she's about the same age as your little one, so thanks for all the tidbits ;) Dumb question, but does the ivory audree pompom quilt from Ballard look okay with the white in person? It looks amazing in the pics, btw, but my daughter's room has a lot of white as well so thought i'd ask the pro :)

  9. Looks so lovely. That blanket is such a showstopper! I just moved a bunch of beds around in my house and need to find some whimsy for my 6 year old's room. Her bed came from the guest room and feels a little too grown up!

  10. I have been looking for an affordable Moroccan wedding blanket every year in Germany but haven't gotten lucky yet. Love the look. And at my house we are the complete opposite and sleep much better with a duvet than a quilt.
    All the changes are so stylish and adorable

  14. It's adorable -- from the light fixtures all the way to the floor. The perfect finishing touch for this spherically, sweet room would be a wonderful Felt Ball Rug! (Especially a custom pink one!) We'd love to be in touch http://bit.ly/1EBkKnv

  15. I love the curtain pattern and the moroccan blanket is very pretty. I am in the process of converting our blinds over to bamboo shades. I love the way they look and my kids always manage to damage the traditional style in the living room window lol.
