My butterfly inspired girl’s bedroom…..
My girl’s room has been Lenox Tan for over a year now. I love non-traditional colors for kids rooms. I wanted something that could work for all 3 of my girls. Since it is a tiny room, I wanted it to be non-claustrophobic and and very calming. I was very excited to see that tans are coming back in style. I love how Melaine did her daughter’s room.
And I was totally inspired by super-talented Tara’s use of paper butterflies. I had to be a copy cat. 🙂
I painted all of the garage sale frames I had accumulated over the years to one color.
And then collaged them on the walls.
And cut out paper butterflies to “mount” in each one.
I am trying to decide what to do about the valances, if I keep them or not.
I really have to get that Etsy store of mine open so it’s an easier decision. 🙂
I found this bamboo birdcage for $8 and painted it white, hung it on a ribbon from the ceiling and added some little flutterby’s. It’s kind of neat because when the windows are open it drifts just a bit and the little wings kind of flap in the breeze.
The best part is; I took the book pages from a copy of “Little Women.”
And the reason the beds are slightly off center is the little peanut sleeps over in the corner.
Someday when she get s big girl bed we are going to have to reconfigure the room a bit; but we’ll make it work.

Traci’s blog : )
So gorgeous! I love it.
What a very sweet room! I love the clean, simplicity, use of the old frames and antique headboards. Your daughters are blessed to have such a wonderful sanctuary.
Oh, Jen, it’s gorgeous!!! Is there anyway you could incorporate white tulle into your valance to sort of soften the colors of it? I have no idea if that would work but I thought if it could have a “vellum” effect,that might go with all the other white you have going on…it’s a dreamy room, really!
oh my gosh. another beautiful room can i hire you????
I love this idea…so beautiful and whimsy!!! Great job Jen, you are so talented!!

Hi Jennifer. I know this is such an ‘after the moment’ comment as your post was back in August, but I have just been having the best time going through your bloggy archives and I just had to comment on your girls’ room. I am also the mama of 3 girls and your daughters’ bedroom is AMAZING!! I have literally thousands of girls’ bedroom pics that I have kept over the years, but yours just takes the cake! I LOVE it! I love the colour, I love the butterflies (even more so as they are made from pages from a copy of Little Women), and I love the window treatments! Sorry to be so gushy, but it is just beautiful and my 10 yr old is sitting here in total agreeance:D Fabulous job, you are so inspiring ~ Tina xx
Your girls room inspired me to do a little makeover..check it out!
This is the most beautiful bedrooms I have ever seen…Love it so much!!!!!
Could you tell me how you cut out the butterflies and how you attached them to the wall? I love this idea for my daughter’s room and have purchased frames but I am stuck after that!
I used heavy duty double stick tape and those double sided foam things that way they could come off later.
