the girls' room

19 April 2016

When I was little (well, until I was 14 so "little" might be relative) my room was covered in wallpaper with a busy pink rose design complete with a matching border and I really loved it. While it was tempting to stick with the trendy clean lines/minimal look for the kids' rooms because they are going to be messy 98% of the time as it is but then I found myself making tissue paper flowers galore and all of a sudden had totally fallen into the floral theme (no wallpaper - yet!) with the girls. Old habits die hard, I suppose.

But, Julia loves it and Phoebe hasn't said otherwise ... so I'm going to guess she's happy to be a little flowerchild for the time being too.

Really glad I thought to hang this mirror high above the tall dresser so the girls can catch glimpses of their reflection whenever they fancy.

Really glad.

While we have things hung on the wall and bedding for Julia's bed that we both agreed on (somewhere between Disney princess & boring pastel mom-esque pattern) ... the most recent addition to the room has me the most excited.

Jazz hands up and looking lively ... mattress time.

You might remember that Simon and I got a Leesa mattress for our bed last summer and we've loved it so much. They offered to send one for Julia and we all but jumped on the offer. Pun intended? Of course.

Her old mattress had seen much better days and I'd often find her camped out on the floor at night because I think the comfort level was similar. Oops.

Leesa mattresses are great for a million reasons but here are a few ...

+ Getting them set up is, "easy breezy lemon squeezy" as Julia often says because they come rolled up and packed tightly in a box and just sort of unroll and puff up as soon as they are unwrapped

+ Leesa gives you 100 nights to try your mattress completely risk free

+ the 10" mattress comes in all sizes and is made up of three unique layers (including memory foam and latex-like Avena foam which keeps you cool) and has been so great for Simon's "32 year old going on 110 year old" back

+ for every 10 mattresses sold, Leesa donates a mattress to a shelter

my little Picassos had a coloring field day with the box too ...

Still looking for the mom-love declarations, J. Still looking!

Anyway, since getting Julia all set up with her Leesa -- I haven't found her camped out on the ground which has been a nice change and made for much happier wake-ups in the morning.

Can you spot Bosco kicking it with Sleeping Beauty?

And don't tell Julia but when the cat's away at school the mice can often be found on her trampoline bed ...

if you're curious about Leesa and would like to give them a try ... now is a great time to do so because the first 50 readers to order and use the code: CAMPPATTON will get $75 off their order. You've got nothing to lose with their 100 day risk-free trial.

Happy sleeping! And many thanks to Leesa for sponsoring this post!


  1. I hope a tissue paper flower tutorial is coming soon. Those look fantastic!

  2. So timely. My back has been killing me the past few weeks and I'm starting to think it *may* have something to do with our 11 year old mattress. Not sure though.

  3. Love Julia's bedspread. Where is it from?

  4. I laughed at the mirror comment - did that in my daughter's room, too, so she jumps on the bed to see herself in it. :| Unrelated to the post, but I love your tank top! Where is it from?

  5. so much fun!! loving the floral, too!

  6. I LOVE IT! And did I miss the post/snap/youtube on the flower how to? I mean I am sure you are laughing at me for even asking, but I think they are so cool!

  7. Super cute!! We are setting up our 2 year old's "big girl room" right now (her own room, versus sleeping in mom & dad's room) so this post is right up my alley!

  8. Do they sell these in stores so we can go lay on it? My mattress is about 12 years old and I have a back like Simon, it sounds, but I can be pretty picky and don't want to get it and be all "nope this doesn't work for me" on day 1.

  9. Just ordered my Leesa. My husband and I are more than excited to upgrade from a full to a queen! Thanks for the discount code!

  10. We've been in the market for a new mattress. This post is timely. Isn't it ironic - don't ya think...

  11. I have been sleeping on a Leesa for 7 months now and i L-O-V-E it. I was hesitant about buying one without trying it first, but it's honestly the best. It does take a bit of time to get used to if you are not accustomed to a memory foam mattress - but that's what the 100 night guarantee is for :)

  12. love this sweet room! I have 3 little girls and am forever looking for room inspiration for them since I know nothing about interior decor, but at the same time am very opinionated. ;) Where did you get the things for the gallery wall you did for them?
