This week’s featured room is a girly toddler room! Formerly a home office, this bright girl’s room is as pretty as can be.
Designed by mom Nicki Pasqualone of Cute and Company (a blog specializing in anything relating to interiors, weddings, events & personal style), Amelia’s big girl room is sure to inspire a decorating project.

What was your inspiration for the room?
I collected images I liked from Pinterest into an inspiration collage (see below).
Tell us about your daughter’s room.
Amelia’s nursery was painted a pale aqua with touches of pink… but as she has grown into a toddler it began to feel a little too babyish. She and I talked it over and decided she was ready for a big girl bed with “princess curtains” as we call them. I decided to move her into our other spare room that also happened to be a bit further away from her daddy’s at-home recording studio. : )
I already owned the iron poster bed, the desk (was actually mine as a young child) and dresser — it was just a matter of accessorizing and adding cute bedding. I wanted to keep the room light, fresh and a little modern with touches of color. I also decided to keep the chalkboard wall I painted in the room that was originally my office since she has always loved scribbling away on it.
Do you have any favorite items in the room?
I love the paisley pillows I found on Etsy. I searched for weeks for something that would tie the colors together and I felt like these were perfect. I also love the cupcake art print above her desk that was originally hung over her Jenny Lind changing table. I purchased the carpet as a remnant from a high end flooring store and had it bound into a rug. There’s no cheaper way to afford a nice rug!
Any advice to share with other moms transitioning from nursery to toddler room?
Consult with your child. They have lots of opinions about how they want their room to look. And remember that pulling a room together doesn’t mean making everything match. I also love using unexpected items as accessories, like the vintage pink glass pieces to hold her hair clips and bows.
