This adorable room belongs to 4-year-old Harper Zimmerman. While she didn’t have a lot to do with the design of her room, her mom, Audree, gave Owensboro Parent all the details of this special space.
Tell us about your family.
We are a family of four plus two pups. My husband, Jake, is a nurse practitioner at Owensboro Health’s ER and I am a stay at home parent. My daughter, Hadleigh, is 13 and Harper is 4. Our dogs are Winnie and Wallace.
Tell us about your home.
Our home is a new build but also a starter home. I can’t imagine leaving it just yet. It’s small but cozy.
Did you have a style in mind when designing Harper’s room?
To be honest I’m not sure that I have a certain style. I typically just find things I like and go with it.
Why was it time for a room re-do for Harper? Did she have input on the style?
I redesigned Harper’s room because it was time for a big girl bed. I’m not sure she wanted to help decorate. The only thing she requested was her pudgy the pig stay on her bed.
What is your favorite part of the room?
My favorite part about her room is the bonnet stand with her first bonnet. Harper didn’t have hair for a very long time so she lived in bonnets during summer.
What about Harper’s?
Harper says her favorite part about her room is her rug because it’s pink like Pinkalicious.
Is there anything sentimental about the design?
The dresser was mine when I was a little girl. It was passed down to my oldest daughter Hadleigh and now passed down to Harper.
Where do you get your design ideas?
A little Pinterest and a little on my own. I knew I wanted it to be girly. I went back and forth on different wallpapers for a few weeks and ultimately decided on the Anthropology watercolor flora wallpaper. My husband is a saint for hanging that wallpaper. I also knew I wanted to incorporate bows and lucked out when I found dresser pulls and a lamp. Her sheets are also pretty pink bows.
Did you have a budget?
I didn’t initially set a budget. I just tried to be conscious of how much I was spending. Luckily I kept it around $1,500. Using Hadleigh’s bed from when she was a little girl and my dresser saved a lot of money.
