Fly Me to the Moon Bedrooms

Full confession - I love decorating kids rooms.  They're fun and you can do some creative things that might look a bit odd in say....a living room!  And I'm not sure how it happened, but somehow the moon ended up as a theme in both the kids rooms at the Farmhouse (I keep hearing Frank Sinatra singing Fly Me to the Moon as I work on these rooms!).

First up - the former 'pink room'.  It's a really nice sized room with 3 windows that face south and west, for lots of sunlight and cross breezes.

The inspiration for this room?  This amazing light fixture that was custom made by Brian, the incredibly creative shopkeeper at The Lamp Repair Shop in Knightville.  It's a combination of a lot of different fixtures, all pulled together into the perfect rocket ship.  I just love it! (PS - he has another one that's a tall floor lamp size!).

Add to that this very cool bed I found at Crate & Barrel and we have the start to a very fun room.

For the bedding, I've added these glow-in-the-dark sheets from Garnet Hill - complete with lots of rocket ship style.

I'm going to add the black and white solar system wall stickers from Lovely Wall Co. to play up the theme a bit.

Oh, and did I mention this will be a girls room?  So we'll have this NASA T-shirt and some other girl future-scientist clothes in the closet!  Plus the very fun astronaut stuffie from Target!  And last but not least, a movie poster from Hidden Figures (didn't you love that movie??).

And while none of the bedrooms had overhead lighting when we bought the house, we'll be changing that with this fixture on the ceiling.

And I'm also adding this Restoration Hardware sconce between the two windows.

Next up:  I've decided to design a nursery
for what started as the 'green room'.  This room is a bit on the small side, but again, it has windows on the east and south - so lots of light and airflow.

The inspiration here - this sleeping moon rug from Pottery Barn Kids.  Thanks to the neutral color scheme in the rug, it will be a very neutral room, suitable for a boy or girl.

I can always count on Julie at Earth Angel Arts to come up with amazing art work for staging the house.  She's so creative!  She made this sweet string art for the walls.  Aren't they adorable?

I'll add a polka dot quilt, pillow and lots of other details to pull it all together!
We've still got a bit of work to do, but I hope to start pulling the rooms together soon!

  1. Do you leave all that behind, or break it down and take it with you? It is a lot of fun to style and decorate - to take everything you like and arrange it in a fresh space.

    1. I have a couple of storage facilities that I keep things in. It's a lot of work to take it back and forth - but makes the house seem much more like a home!

  2. Love both, especially the astronaut themed girl's room! Love the idea of the Hidden Figures movie poster. Did you know that this year's American Girl doll of the year is also an aspiring astronaut?

    1. Wow, American Girl is so hip!!! Because we know girls can do anything!
