Hi friends! Jillian here, and I’m just back from April school break. I spent the week in Rhode Island at my parents’ home with my children while my foyer stairs were getting sanded and refinished here at my brick nest. Dare I say I think we may be done with the floors in the house?!?! I’m super excited about that! I will show you more on the grand foyer refresh soon, but today we are plugging along with week four of the One Room Challenge, decor and more! Be sure to check out the progress of hundreds of other bloggers as they transform rooms during this event. Thanks to Calling It Home for hosting!
Since I am just getting back home and reorganized from school break I will keep it brief today with lots o’ photos and with little chit chat!! Also, since you saw the furniture last week, I am trying to keep things top secret too before the big reveal! I wouldn’t want to spoil the surprise for you!

Here’s a quick recap: week 1 was the plan, week 2 was blush-pink paint, and week 3 was furniture, a rug, and lighting. Now onward with the photographs of some decor elements I am planning for my daughter’s big girl bedroom! Below is an adorable pouf my fabulous sister-in-law Becky (of Nantucket Looms) gave me for my daughter’s room. It’s a perfect way to tie together the purple rug and the blush-colored walls! Be sure to check out the amazing selection of home decor and more at Nantucket Looms.
Look at these adorable little baskets I found! I love the beachy, chic, girly vibe. I may just have to pick up some more of these affordable little cuties!
Now on to the doll house bookshelfie (similar bookshelf). Love, love, love how cute this bookshelf arrangement came out! Functional and adorable storage–now you can’t beat that!
This great lamp was another Homegoods score! Here is a similar option.
These lamps I had already, and their small size is perfect for the pretty and petite nightstands.
I love this pillow for the bench. I’m planning to fill the rest of this bench with stuffed animals and dolls to make it into a whimsical storage space.
Lastly, this old field hockey trophy of mine that was collecting dust in the basement is going to get a spray paint makeover and turn into a fun, unique decor accent for my daughter’s room. Stay tuned for that! While I don’t know how exactly it will turn out, the trophy couldn’t get any uglier so it’s worth a go! Also I should add that obviously the date on the trophy is wrong (wink wink)!
Here is a look at what we have left to do:
- Next week I will talk about art and window treatments (and anything else I may have forgotten).
- Decorate the heck out of this little girl room and have Lisa take a gazillion photos for the REVEAL!
Yippee! Almost there! Check back next week as I show you some fantastic paintings by my mother-in-law and dish about all of my framing secrets. You will not want to miss it–it will be easy on the eyes and helpful for sure!
- My nest is not a museum, it is a comfortable, charming, unique, fabulous home with young children. I have high-end custom pieces, vintage tag sale finds, authentic antiques, colorful prints, and basic box store staple furniture. There are many ways to add functional style to your home and I can't wait to share my ideas and inspirations with you!
