A Little Girl’s Room… The Story of Dakota Rose

November 10, 2014

Filed in: Homemaking

When I had my first baby, Dakota Rose, I dreamed of what my girl would be like! As a first time mommy I began dreaming of what her room would be like too ūüėČ ¬†Throughout my pregnancy I collected items that I loved and the vision for her little girl room was born. ¬†
When we had Dakota we lived in a very small home with only one bedroom.  I wanted to decorate a nursery so bad so I did the best I could and created her own little space within ours!  All it included was a crib, bedding, and the sweetest name banner from Land of Knod.  It was the beginning of her story.  
I love a room that tells a story… We shared a room for the last 4 years in that little house so I had plenty of time to collect the things that have been meaningful in her life. ¬†We recently moved into our new home, so finally, I got the chance to put it all together!
¬†This precious name banner from¬†Land of Knod¬†was the first piece that inspired me five short years ago…¬†
Dakota loves to look at photos… so I displayed this one of the four generations of women in our family. ¬†We both cherish it dearly. ¬†I also put her baby albums in a basket because she enjoys looking through those. ¬†She just had to have this alarm clock at Target… she wanted to wake up like her daddy does;). ¬†I love little details so I displayed a mama doe & baby fawn on her window seal because her favorite movie is Bambi and she has a great love for nature- it’s a little hard to see in the lighting… ¬†I also replaced her dresser knobs with some fancy ones from Land of Knod.
My hope and prayer.
A place to have some fun!  She is all about makeup and jewelry, playing that guitar, and being fancy. I bought this jewelry box and pretty little seat from Pottery Barn Kids.  The shag rug came from Homegoods and the butterflies were also from pbkids.  I made some butterflies myself using some old doilies I had that my grandma made.  It was a way to incorporate a piece of grammy into her sweet little space. 
I can see her name in the spotlight already;)
 whoever invented these book shelves РI. love. you.  
She makes my heart happy. ¬†This comfy quilt is from Pottery Barn Kids. ¬†I bought it on clearance and purchased the twin size to save money. ¬†Her bed is full size but no one will ever know…. I also got the canopy and owl at pbkids. ¬†The raccoon was a gift from her pa, ¬†again she loves forest creatures;) ¬†One of my favorite things in her room are these wall art posters. I found them on Etsy¬†a while ago but the girl who makes them has become popular since then and she now has products at Target… look for her stuff! ¬†Her name is Katie Daisy. The sugar bear one is from Gingiber¬†on etsy. ¬†I fell in love with it because that was what my grammy called her.¬†
Oh Kodykat!!!  Mommy loves you!
btw, I’ve never purchased anything from JCrew because I don’t live near one, but I found the kids tennis shoes on their website and ordered this shirt too. ¬†They have the cutest stuff and I have been so impressed with the quality! ¬†I have to say JCrew¬†is a new fav!
This sign fits her to a T! ¬†Anyone who knows my girl would describe her as a fun loving, spirited, silly, smart, ambitious, adventurous little tomboy who leaves a little sparkle wherever she goes…<3
House of Belonging makes these signs and so many more adorable things! 

My little one is ever changing and growing¬†and her sweet bedroom will too. ¬†It’s nice to embrace things as they are and enjoy all the little things that are special to you! ¬†Hope you enjoyed the room tour and thanks so much for reading! ¬†If you have any questions or would like to share some cute ideas please leave me a comment or email me! ¬†I’d love to hear from you:)
