Charlie’s (big kid) Room Styled to Sell
Charlie’s room is now a big kids room. And I am now a puddle of ‘mom’. We are moved out of that house, but I am still writing the content, memories flooding in of how wonderful those years were with that wallpaper. Charlie misses it and it motivates me to make his room in our new house super special, too. If you are on the fence about having a really fun wallpaper for your kids and are worried that it will be too stimulating, I’m here to say it’s not and that they love it. Even kids know when something is special.
For selling we styled this room more for a big kid since we needed to bring the crib over to our new house. Plus we were doing this bedding series with Target that would look so much better on a daybed than a crib, obviously, so we switched things up and man it looks good.
Everything is from the Pillowfort collection from Target. It’s just so gosh darn cute. We put in a daybed to help the room look bigger than a twin bed would have.
If only their toys really looked like that for more than 90 seconds after a shoot. Those little animals can really ruin a room pretty darn quickly.
The video gives the best styling tips, better than I could (even though I did it). Plus I was wrangling four kids tonight, making them a dope fort, which took 45 minutes, for them to spend approximately 6 minutes max inside, pretending that they barely liked it. It’s fine because look how pulled together this room is.
On the other side of the room we took the more real estate photo – pulled back and informational.
I love that little babyletto dresser from Target and can you believe that ladder is from there? I could use a blanket ladder in every room. It’s like a good pair of underwear – solves problems without adding bulk. When you start making underwear analogies you may need to just pull the covers over your tired head and call it a night.
It’s a pretty darn great room. That wallpaper made the rest of the room so easy to design. It had enough negative space that it still felt so bright and happy even though it was a bold paper.
Here’s how you can get that look:

Now the real question is – how am I going to make Charlie’s room 2.0 better than this one?
