oh i could not wait to share this with you.
it’s all pretty amazing really to have watched this room in all of it’s stages and now in all of it’s glory!
it is officially complete and hannah is over the moon.
she chose benjamin moore maiden hair fern for the color. and as much as this mama of hers would have loved to see revere pewter on the walls, i love how it blends in with the leaves right outside of her huge windows.
to get an idea of how much we needed to dormer out you can see the original roof line just above the staircase. behind the mirrored door is the old attic space which comes in handy for storage.
the woodwork and trim was made to match the rest of this arts and crafts style house and we added some ship lap on the walls for a little more modern feel.
my grandfather crafted the built in bookcase (who’s top i am picking up from his shop tomorrow) to house books and collections.
she has a nice sized closet which fits all of her shoes and clothes and allows for more space in her room for dancing, playing and hanging out.
her antique bed was a gift from my mom and the drawing above it lived in my room as a child. artwork by hannah and my sister also lives on the walls. her desk was salvaged and given some new hand crafted drawer pulls.
on her first night up there i laid with both her and norah (who has been invited up to sleep and snuggle whenever she likes) and looked out at the leaves rustling on the big maple tree. we listened to the rain tapping on the roof and i marveled at this little house of ours and how it keeps on expanding and growing along with us.
stay tuned for more details and photos of this exciting new project!
Oh how I love your addition. Your home is dreamy!!!! I love your blog…thanks for sharing your home. Kim
This is such a gorgeous space- so honest and and well-crafted. She’s a very lucky young woman!
What an amazing room. I love how it flows so nicely into your existing home. Really beautiful!
This is lovely! I would love to give my girls a room like this some day!
What a beautiful room!! I would have been over the moon if I had a room like this when I was Hannah’s age!! Can’t wait to see more.
This looks fabulous! It reminds me of when we renovated the upstairs of our little one-and-a-half story house. Only you did a much better job. We made the mistake of taking out all the closets to really open up the space. Bad move.

Aw, Amy, it’s truly dreamy, and looks like it has always been there — which means it was meant to be. The bed is spectacular. Congratulations to Hannah, if you see her. (Hopefully she’ll come downstairs *sometimes*, right? 🙂
It looks beautiful! I think the color she chose is really soothing.

I remember how exciting it was when we dormered out and made rooms for Ray and Faith.
I love greens and you can always change it!
I love your girl’s new room. What a beautiful place to dream and grow.
