Millie's Room

Lately, lots of bloggers have been giving virtual house tours. While I like the idea, we don't really live in a a blog-worthy house, but in a smaller apartment. Most of the place isn't very exciting, and has an overdose of the color green in my opinion. (Sky and I now jokingly bring up buying more green things, and then moan in agony.)

But when Millie told me she'd like to do a post showing her favorite room in the house, I had to oblige. It's my favorite room, too. Kind of quirky, mismatched, and nothing fancy, but it breaths of her and that makes me love it.
Her dresser- my old dresser, painted blue by a 12 year old me.
Framed photos, Amelia Bedeila books, etc.
Changing table/shoe wardrobe
She sneaks in to play with her shoes quite often.
Our glider rocker. Bought at a garage sale for next to nothing,
I polished it up and Sky recovered it in this clearance rack fabric. 
Her crib.
The monkey she snuggles with at bedtime.
More framed photos, and part of the banner from her birthday.
A growth chart. I'm glad she recognizes Elmo more from this than from watching TV.
Laundry hamper, inherited vanity, and shelves.
The A above her crib. She points at it almost every morning.
Her memo boards. I ripped this from a magazine and pinned it up for her to remember.
A gift from my mom
One of many places her books are kept. I liked the way it matched the rocker.
That's all Millie has for you today!


And now, it's time for bed.

OMG - if that fabric was clearance, AND it matches the inside of the book holder...that's meant to be!! I love her room. I hate when people go bat-shit crazy overboard because it's their child, "they deserve everything"...blah blah. Kids just need a cute room with personal touches and you do just that!!!

Such a sweet room! I love things and furniture that are passed down from family. My dresser is a green color that my mom painted when she was a girl - the color is awful but I can't stand the thought of repainting it!
Love all of her books and the cute monkey! She's a very blessed little girl!

Such a cute room! I would need 50 of those book things to hold all of Emma's mom and I have kind of gone overboard! LOL! I actually love her blue dresser and the rocker is super cute!

P.S. What little girl doesn't have a proper shoe wardrobe! We're just bringing them up right, you know :)

The only way it could be improved upon is to have a complete set of Dickens in it, and I think you have time to work on that! Her room is so sweet and "Millie-ish." I think it's a perfect room for a tour - it's home!

Looks like a very nice room!

The coolest thing about it is that it can grow with her... you didn't go overtly "baby!"

Amelia Bedelia was my absolute favorite as a little girl!!!! :)

vintch said...

oh it's just the most darling thing ever! i can see why it's her favorite room in the house--i love how you have a story and memory for almost everything in that room--she can just look around her and see the LOVE that (literally) surrounds her. so pretty, erika!

beka said...

Christine said...

So sweet! That's what my little guy's room looks like too, lots of mismatched stuff but somehow still oh so him. :)
