Little miss Moo's big girls room.....

...and a fond farewell to the toddler room...

 
 
It's the end of an era..... Little Miss Moo has finally got her big girls room!this was meant to happen when she turned 4, but for various reasons we never got around to it until last weekend... and in the nick of time...she had way outgrown her toddler room by now, and was starting to get embarrassed to have her friends around, as she's a big girl now.... They grow up so fast...Where does the time go.................?
 
 But before I share her new big girls room with you all, I wanted to repost these images from her toddler room:
 


Little Miss Moo's room was cute, but not saccharine: The walls were painted a light mossy green.... With a lovely bed canopy from IKEA, the cot bed (that has been her bed since birth in all its shapes and forms) was from John Lewis. The (wonky) Steinlen cat prints on the wall was bought in Paris during our honeymoon....
 
 
 
 
I'd mirrored the use of bunting on the canopy in the window dressing....

 
 
.....and the "dottiness" of the fabrics are recurrent in the little lampshade light garland (Tiger tiger) as well as on the fabric covered letters (mamas and papas) on the shelves.....
I love the white rabbit night light!
The shelves are from IKEA, as is the green night light (on the wall) and the crocodile in the bed...
.....Miss Moo thinks he's great for a cuddle(still)!
 
 

 
 
Miss Moo's room is not very big, and it's was a challenge to get it kitted out for her growing needs now she's a big girl...
 
with swopping her cot bed (she was almost the length of it now....)for a big girls bed and finding space for storage + leaving enough space for play.
...we had to loose the chest of drawers she keept her clothes in....
See how I overcome this problem in the follow up post....coming soon!!
 
Miss Moo loves music, Scooby doo and witches at the moment...(I know...what a combo, right??)
But the thing she loves the most, is being "a Hex-girl": some sort of eco Goth girl band rock star alter ego....!?!
She gets dressed up in every necklace, bracelet and hairclip she can find ( watch out mummy's jewellery), apply a heavy handed dose of glitter make up then rock out with her piano or her paper jams electric guitar....
 
 

 
Next month it'll probably be something different....
...so the new big-girls room will have to accommodate for a variety of future interests and fads....
 


 
 
  I just hope she'll never get too big for all her old friends .....

Ha ha, great post! She'd definitely get on like a house on fire with N & I then! Isla especially has always liked spooky things - her idol is Mona The Vampire!

Good luck with the room renovations - it is gorgeous at the moment though too.
