Girls Modern Animal Bedroom Tour

True story, It only took me about 5 months to transform this simple room for our girls. If you haven’t sensed the huge sarcasm let me let you in on a little secret. This adorable mini house bed was ordered back in November 2017. It was suppose to be the girls Christmas gift and I had envisioned it being all done and set up by December 25th, 2017. Ha! Well that project certainly took a back seat.

So what happened? In a nutshell, the company we ordered the bed from never emailed letting us know the bed was backordered and they also had shipping issues. So as the holidays drew nearer, I emailed them worrying the bed wouldn’t get to our house in time. And guess what? Crickets. I started to get worried that the site might not be legit. More like complete panic mode. So I followed up with a call. Someone picked up, phew! They then mentioned they didn’t have it in stock until the first week of January. I know, total bummer. So we told the girls about their gift, bought a few other toys for them to open on Christmas and that was that.

Come January, we received an email (finally!) letting us know that the bed was on its way and would arrive towards the end of the month. Say what??? Another month without the bed? Geez! So long story short when the bed finally did arrive (early February), we were so busy we didn’t have time to open all the boxes and put it together until around Valentine’s.

And in case you’re wondering, we made the decision to transition our girls into one room and turn Lexi’s nursery into a playroom (still working on it). The idea came in hopes to find a solution to the toy mayhem. Anyone else relate? Happy to report the toys are staying out of their bedroom and ours for the most part. It also helps that I created the “Garbage fairy.” Any toys left outside the playroom or family room will be taken by the garbage fairy (wink, wink). Trust me, it’s working so far over here.

Now let’s talk about this adorable full size w/twin pull out bed. When I was looking for beds for the girls, I knew I didn’t want the typical bunk beds they sell at the furniture stores nor the single princess twin beds. I wanted something more fun. And bigger but with options. Love that we can have them sleep together on the full size mattress or separate with the twin pull out option. Same goes for their new ultra dreamy evesleep mattress. It’s very different, functional and ultra comfortable. I’ll admit, I fall asleep in their bed at times and wish I had this mattress in our master bedroom too!

I’m also loving all the bits of animal decor we’ve added to the girls room. If you follow us on IG, you already know that our girls are big animal lovers. So much so Mia, our oldest, asked us to buy her a zoo one time. So since we can’t buy the girls a zoo, we wanted to add all their animal favorites into this sweet space.

These unique and gorgeous prints were hand painted and delivered by the very talented owner, Kathy of little splashes of color. Mia and Lexi absolutely love giraffes and flamingoes so you can just imagine how excited they were to see this in their new room. Check out all the beautiful animal prints on the little splashes of color site. They are all beautiful and very affordable with tons of options to choose from.

Speaking of options, what if I told you that you could machine wash your kiddos bedroom rug?  This beautiful Lorena Canals Saffi rug has all the pretty colors and it’s also machine washable. Yes, machine washable! Moms, you all need this in your lives! Trust me on this one. Because who has the time and extra money to take rugs to the cleaners, anyways right?

And if you’re wondering about this cute chair, marble & gold side table, Koala artwork and wall planters, they’re all from one of my favs, Homegoods!

This cute window planter is from ikea! We just added artificial pink tulips for spring. Definitely looking forward to decorate their cute house bed with fun seasonal items all year round.

If you love this post and think a friend would too, please pass it along. Sharing is caring! Also, if you find any cute animal home decor please let us know. 😉

 

Abrazos (hugs),

Gladys

    Their bedroom looked so cute and so nice. I love the tree house idea and looks like they are really enjoying it. Sorry that the company didn’t tell you it was back ordered, such a terrible customer service style

    The entire room turned out so well! I love everything about it. I saw that same bed a year or so ago when we redid my daughter’s room. It truly is a dream room for the girls. Ps I’m stealing the garbage fairy idea!! Haaaa

  • #sponsored As a mom, I’m constantly struggling with pulling our girls away from the screens and shifting their focus to pretend play. Surely, I’m not the only one dealing with this right? 🙋‍♀️
.

So, you can just imagine the excitement that went on in my little home office when I received an invitation to be a guest at a roundtable with a select group of influencers — and child development experts in conjunction with Melissa from Melissa & Doug and Parents Magazine in NYC! 🗽More so as we love all the @melissaanddougtoys pretend play toys. Plus, I’m looking forward to hearing more about the movement that is at the heart of the Melissa + Doug brand: the importance of play — in all its forms. And to share with you all the tips and recommendations. .

Be sure to peep our stories throughout our stay this week because we’re also going to be attending a preview of the much anticipated NEW @faoschwarz store opening in Rockefeller Plaza!!! And check back for a full recap on the blog when we return to CA. There’s going to be an amazing GIVEAWAY that will surely help jumpstart your holiday shopping, too! #takebackchildhood
  • Can you believe the holidays are just around the corner? Where did the time go? We're definitely excited over here and are getting a head start. Starting with our traditional holiday ‪pj's‬. You all know we love matching so when the girls unboxed these adorable Emoji mommy+me Holiday ‪pj's‬ from @childrensplace they were so excited and couldn't wait to put them on. And truthfully, I couldn't either. Plus, they're ultra soft and cozy too!

  • The weather is finally starting to cool down in Southern California. Actually, let me rephrase that. The weather is finally cooling down in the evenings and early mornings around here. 🤣
