Building a Home – Charlotte’s Room Reveal

I’ve got another room reveal for you.  This one is Charlotte’s room and might have been the hardest to get pictures of because it is very rare that it is all cleaned up and put together without babies everywhere.  But it is adorable and she loves every square inch of it so that’s what matters!

Let’s start off with a look back at the inspiration board for Charlotte’s room.

Tales of a Peanut Charlotte's Room Inspiration Board


There were a few changes made to her room design, but the change of her bed was really the only big one.  Since our home is built in the French Eclectic style, it has very steep roof pitches.  In order to not have our house look out of proportion as a very tall but skinny house, we chose to stick with 8′ ceilings on the second floor.  And with the roof pitch, this meant that a lot of the rooms have walls/ceilings that slant for a foot or so.  This really has been no problem, except with the fact that we were planning on getting Charlotte a canopy bed.

When I originally looked at the canopy bed I knew that we had 8′ and less ceilings and so I took that into account and made sure that the bed would fit.  It would have been just fine.  So I placed the order and the bed was backordered which was fine since I had allowed my self extra time.  And then the electrician’s started hanging light fixtures and I realized that because the ceilings were lower, the ceiling fan would hit the canopy bed!  I managed to find an upholstered bed on Joss and Main at a fraction of the cost of the Pottery Barn bed and got Charlotte to compromise on not having a canopy by doing a crown and sheers above her bed.  It’s a little different look than what I was anticipating — more grown up — but it is still lovely and she loves it.

Without further ado, here’s Charlotte’s room.
