Project Little Miss | Art & Bedding

Monday?! Dang, that came fast! We had the most glorious weather this weekend...and now I have a case of serious Fall Fever. We spent most of our time outside, but did manage to make a dent in Little Miss's room, thanks to some gorgeous new art from Minted, and fun pom-pom bedding.

You may remember the DIY Large Art she had over her bed in the last house. Yeah, well, that met an untimely death during the move. So when we started putting her new room together, I asked what she wanted to hang over her bed. She didn't even hesitate before saying, "A big horse picture, please!"

I thought about creating another one ourselves, but when Minted asked us to help spread the word about their new large format framed art, I didn't even hesitate before saying, "A big horse picture, please!"

I searched their art selection for 'horse,' and let my daughter choose her favorite. Since it's on the room's focal wall, we chose their largest print size, but opted for a white frame so the art would really pop. For someone who loves color so much, I'm completely cuckoo over these bright white walls! They feel so fresh, and everything looks great next to them.

The art arrived immaculately packed, and perfectly framed...all we had to do was throw a nail in the wall, and BAM! Beautiful statement piece! Horses and art are Little Miss's passions (as evidenced by four consecutive years of art parties, and her former artist gallery wall!), so she couldn't be happier with it. You can choose if you want your art piece signed or not, and I thought it so respectful that she insisted the artist sign her work.

Another goal on the list was to swap out the last remnant of the Parisian theme from her former room...the bedding. My intent was to make a bunch of pom-poms and attach them to an Ikea duvet (similar to this project), but this duvet was too easy good to pass up on a recent sale!

It's the perfect amount of color without overwhelming the room...which is key considering what we're using for drapes! Looks like I need to touch-up the bed paint, and cover the box spring with sheet, too.

Tip: Fitted sheets are inexpensive ways to cover box springs, while adding more color or pattern to your bed!

What should we tackle next...the drapes or new nightstands? No more horsing around, we're knocking this room out! #harhar #punny

  7. Our girls are similar ages and evidently into a few of the same things as I noted the lego friends assembled on the nightstand. I'm so glad you are doing this project right now as it is giving me ideas on how to plan out Carly's new room. My Bigs are now officially out of the house and on their own so this December we will be converting big bros room into a proper girly room.

  9. This room is coming along so beautifully. I want to paint a vintage bed red! I am a home colourist but have white walls in my own home, so much easier to mix and match and move color around and make it pop.

  10. Cassie,
    I still love that red bed. It's so unique. I love things that no one else has. The room is definitely taking shape and bringing out her personality. I think a new night stand would really anchor the room, but I wouldn't settle. Only get exactly what you want.

  11. I literally just had a slap your head, aha moment. Thank you for sharing the tip about covering the box spring with a fitted sheet! So simple and I feel really silly for not ever thinking of that! I have, however, complained to my husband about how unsightly the uncovered box spring looks on our otherwise very pretty bed. Total game changer!! Thank you thank you thank you. Did the rest of the world already know this trick???

  15. I'm so glad your daughter is enjoying my art print! I shot that Pony in Iceland, on a stormy stormy day in 60mph winds. But the pony just looked at me, with peaceful eyes...totally happy to be in the storm. You can tell your daughter that Pony is very special and I'm so glad she watches over her at night as she sleeps.
