My daughter, S, is super imaginative; She’ll spend hours in her room just playing with her toys and creating new toys for her toys to play with from things I’d think are trash. I absolutely love this about her and try to encourage her working imagination. So when we moved into our new home, creating the ultimate space for her to dream her big dreams was on the top of my to-do list, but I wasn’t sure how to piece it all together until I found just the right pieces to ignite my own imagination. The result? A whimsical unicorn bedroom unlike any other.

We had cute cloth-covered dining chairs and a white extendable table from in our last house. By the time we moved out everything was covered in paint and food spills courtesy of our daughter’s toddler/preschool years. So when moving into our new home we wanted dining room furniture that would look fantastic for actually having people over at the house, but that could handle the messy lifestyle of the kids. I love the results and the woodland theme kind of reminds me of Snow White. Read more
