Scarlett's New Room. A Change.

I am sure that you know, I love changing things up in all aspects of life, my home is no exception. I love rearranging and sprucing things up. It doesn't help that I have this crazy urge to get things in order before baby either. Getting Scarlett into her new room was on the top of my to-do list. I spoke about how I convinced Scarlett to move into the spare bedroom next to her baby brother's room. She wasn't sure at first, but after we started the process, she was really excited. We condensed her toys, giving a lot of the baby toys to the baby and donating some of the other things.  Scarlett helped make a box of "Baby Boy Toys". It was so sweet!
Once I started going through her things, I was overwhelmed with how much stuff she had! (Her old room here.) It felt good to downsize and get her into a smaller but more organized room. We also packed up a few more boxes of Scarlett's clothes that no longer fit in hopes to make room for some spring clothes. (Still working on an Instagram Sale for all her clothes/shoes) Scarlett's face when she saw her new bedroom was the final thank you. She was elated and couldn't wait to sleep in there.

We kept her table and chairs in the guest suite along with a little art cart so that she can explore painting & crafts. I'm putting together a little art area in there for her. We also left her HUGE dollhouse in a little corner of the guest suite/office. It was just too big to put in the new room and the guest suite has plenty of room. I loved the change immediately. It is so much more functional. Now the wet-bar/coffee area can be used by guests instead of laying idle. Scarlett wasn't using it. The sink also works for her painting in which we can wash hands and brushes. But more on that later. For now, here is Scarlett's new bedroom....What do you think!?
I'd love to get a couple of colorful rugs to scatter on the floor. For now, this small Anthro rug works.
My mother found this gem of a piano in an estate and saved it for my Scarlett. It's vintage but works like new. The Piggy is also from my mother. She gave it to Scarlett when she was really sick in the hospital at 4 months old. It's a sentimental stuffed animal to us. 
These pillows were all collected over time for Scarlett.
The rag banner over her bureau is from her first birthday party
Tip for a Reading Nook: Scarlett loves these large cushions to sit on and read her books. Found some online that were outrageously priced! I bought these in the pet bed section of Home Goods for a 1/4 of the price.
