I’m SO excited to share this sweet girl bedroom full of pink, purple and floral!
Awhile back my sweet friend Anithia reached out to see if I would want to come help decorate her girls’ bedrooms. My boys have had playdates with her girls and another sweet girl friend for years, and I am SO thankful they include them in their little girl gang. These girls take no nonsense from my boys, and I LOVE it! My boys adore them, and I feel like they help so much in teaching my often rough and tumble boys how to treat girls. Throwing a few pillows around is the least I could do, so of course I said YES!
Oh, and secretly, getting to shop for frilly, girly things…SO MUCH FUN!
Anithia’s family recently got all new flooring (so pretty!) and wanted a fresh start in the girls’ rooms. They had newly painted walls, new floors, and these adorable daybeds that will grow with them and have tons of storage!

Anithia said she wanted each girl’s room to reflect their individual personalities! This project was going to be a surprise, but she asked each girl what they might want, since they were setting everything back up anyway after having new floors installed.
For this room she wanted soft, calm colors. Her daughter had already picked a muted purple duvet and a faux fur pink rug. These colors were her biggest request!
Anithia had a few requests for each girl’s bedroom:
Bedding that looked polished and put together, and a backrest pillow for the girls to sit on their beds and read or use their ipads.
A new light fixture
Decor for over the bed
A pouf or ottoman
New fabric to recover the window seat cushions, decorative pillows and window treatments
We set a date and the plan was to start putting the rooms together while the girls were at school, and finish them by the time they got home for a surprise reveal! They had NO IDEA this was happening! SO fun, right?!?
HUGE shoutout to my mom who saved the day! She was going to come help me, but ended up grabbing my youngest from school instead when they called and said he was running a fever! Thank you Mom! Just a little virus and my guy is on the mend!
Ready to see the room?!?
Pink and purple with a calm, pretty color palette and lots of texture.
This super soft floral blanket from Home Goods was one of the first pieces I found that I thought blended the pinks and purples she loved well and added in some teal and soft green.
I had to restrain myself from buying a million pillows (per the norm!) but I loved these! And that little doll was a purchase Anithia made on one of their family trips-adorable!
This style of backrest pillow (one of Anithia’s requests) is actually in both girl’s rooms, and I may have to snag a couple for my boys! It is the perfect size, very soft and a great price point!
I LOVED this pom and tassel pillow! Adds so much texture.
Anithia picked quotes for each girl and our sweet friend Jacqui painted them! I grabbed large signs from Hobby Lobby on a week that they were half off and took Jacqui the floral blanket. She painted the frame to match the dark purple in the blanket. Maya Angelou holds a special place with the girls’ grandma so Anithia knew the girls would immediately connect these quotes with her. I LOVE that our talented friend painted these and that they have such special meaning….my favorite type of pieces! (sappy, table for one!)
The lamp is from Hobby Lobby! They have some cute ones that go 50% off often!
It’s kind of hard to tell, but there is a dresser just to the side of the curtains, which is why we went with a swag style instead of long hanging curtains. We were afraid they would be in the way when she tried to get in her drawers. This swag is light and airy and super affordable. White curtain rods came from Home Goods.
The fabric that previously covered the window cushion was bright and bold. We went with this more subtle white with a metallic silver pattern. I love the texture of these blush pillows too!
Target randomly had little pencils with sweet sayings on them that I knew this girl would appreciate! She has a creative spirit and THE biggest heart!
This light fixture was an Amazon find, and I thought it was so pretty and the perfect size!
Home Goods had the perfect ottoman! I loved the studs along the bottom and thought the color blended perfectly!
I always like to add some special touches when we first set up a space, so I made these little bouquets to match the colors of each girl’s room!
Getting to witness the surprise reveal…I have to tell you…it was THE SWEETEST thing! They were SO excited, and I think this face says it all!
I was so honored to get to create a bedroom this sweet girl loves!
