Sloan's Room Tour


I have shared little bits of Sloan's room here and there on Instagram, but I've never actually done a room tour!  I figure this post is long overdue so I'm super excited to finally share!  I love Sloan's room because it's a great combination of beauty and function.  While the room is decorated and very girly (like Sloan!), it's also super functional and she loves spending time in there.

The girls have a playroom (full playroom tour here) on our main floor and that's where we spend most of our time, so their bedrooms don't house very many toys.  Sloan loves having quiet time in her room so some of her favorite items are in there.  She has a little table with a few art supplies and her tracing books, her princess castle, and a box of her favorite figurines.  The little table is just a cheapy from ikea that I hacked.  I got the idea from this pin on Pinterest (I couldn't find a tutorial when I clicked through, but there's tons on Pinterest).

We were lucky enough to work with Land of Nod (one of my absolute favorite children's brands!) on Sloan's bedding and I love the way it turned out.  Sloan has the Jenny Lind bed in a full size.  I had originally chosen her duvet cover in pink, but it was on backorder so we went with gray instead and I'm so happy we did.  While Sloan prefers pink, I think the gray duvet will last her much longer.  I love her floral sheets and polka dot shams, they go so well with the duvet.  And because Sloan really does think she's a princess, we chose the 'How to be a princess' pillow :).  The 'loved' sign above her bed is old and I couldn't find anything similar, I will update here if I find something!


Sloan's bow's and dress up items hang from little brass bow hooks and they're probably my favorite things in her room.  I bought the bow hooks when Sloan was a baby and hung them in her Seattle nursery (Oh how I miss baby Sloany!).  I had originally hung one of Sloan's dress up dresses on a cute hanger from the bow hook, but Sloan took it down and put all of her favorite things up.  I think it looks even cuter the way that she decorated the hook :).  The photo above the bow hook is a photo of my grandma when she was twenty years old, right before she married my grandpa.  Sloan loves the photo almost as much as I do.


Instead of a traditional nightstand, Sloan has a darling little gold chair where she puts her favorite bedtime books.  She loves the lift and flap Bible and any kind of look and find book, we do one of those every night.  I finally put her hamper right by her door and she actually puts her dirty clothes in it now!  I hung some of Sloan's artwork in simple white frames and I highly recommend doing that with your little.  She LOVES that her artwork is framed and feels so proud of it.


Sloan has a simple ikea dresser, we just changed out the knobs to some cute ones I found at Home Depot.  I absolutely adore the handmade wood sign above her dresser from The Graced House.  I would order one of everything from that shop if I could, I love all the wooden signs so much!  I'll probably get something for baby brothers nursery :).  I always split a bouquet of flowers between two vases and put one in our room and the other in Sloan's room.  I think it makes her feel grown up or maybe she just really likes looking at them, but she loves when I put fresh flowers in her room (isn't that so sweet).


Sloan loves spending time in her room and really so do I.  It's beautiful, but also super cozy and fun.  It's oh so girly which screams Sloany!  I'll link everything I haven't so far below, if I forget anything please leave a comment below and I'd be happy to share!

  3. Such a gorgeous room, fit for a precious princess! I love all the sentimental and personal touches - truly makes it her space! We also don't have toys in bedrooms, thanks to the playroom x

  4. I've had the gold bow hooks and bunny mirror in my cart for months, I just keep waiting for a free shipping code (I'm cheap like that). I love, love, love the fresh flower idea. Sloan's poor future husband has his work cut out for him. lol. And how special is that picture of her great grandma? You're such a good mama.

  5. Did you paint her room and if so, what color? We have a little girl and are building a new home and trying to pick paint colors. It looks slightly pink, is it?

    1. I cannot find the paint can, we must not have it any longer! It is barely an off white, but the pink curtains by the window give it an almost pink tint.
