Corner Desk + Pinboard for Kate

Over the past year, we have been making a few slight changes to Kate's room. Nothing major, just making it a little bit more "big girl". I'm not a fan of nurseries or kid rooms where they don't like look a child lives there. You only have one room growing up and I feel it should reflect a child's space, not an adult space. I also feel as kids get older that bedrooms should be warm and cozy, but also functional for play, schoolwork, etc.

We decided to incorporate a small desk in the corner of her room (see sources at end of post). She loves to write notes, and color and draw at this desk. It feels like her own, and I think that is important for her at this age. We also moved my old pinboard to her room, which I feel is a must in any child's room. When in doubt where something goes, stick it on the pinboard!

We added an acrylic "catch-all" to house all of her calendars and sticky notes and reading calendar and stickers, as well as markers/pens/pencils. It's so cute when she and Drew write notes back and forth to each other. #pleasedontevergrowup

Kate has high ceilings and a lot of natural light pours in here during the day. We just need to hang her gallery wall above her bed and this room will be done (for now anyway)!

As soon as I add some finishing touches, I will post pics of the entire space! Have a great week! xo

  1. This is perfect for a little girls room... a place to hang all her stuff! Love the plant hanging in the window! Have a great weekend, Andrea!
