France is a beautiful country. The style and finesse of the French is addictive. I remember seeing the Eiffel Tower on my first visit in 1998 and having my breathe taken away. Who knew that 14 years late, the Eiffel Tower would be the inspiration for my daughter's room. As you know, this is my first biological child (I have a stepson from my husband's previous relationship), and in an odd way, there is another first for me--this room is my first ever design job. I was able to share my vision with a talented artist, Tene and through her talents, the mural came to life. Then picking out the paint color, adding the crown molding, selecting the furniture, and spending too many hours in HomeGoods was a great ride for me. I adored every minute of the design process.
If you can't tell, this room is a labor of love for me I look forward to putting up the window treatments, assembling the crib (who am I kidding that is my husband's job), and then adding more pieces like the glider, ottoman, and changing table (not looking forward to changing dirty diapers but it comes with the territory of being a mommy).
So, please enjoy the pictures below and know the final addition to the space will be when my daughter moves into her new room. We're 5 weeks and counting... Happy building and happy decorating everyone!

|Here is the dresser--the inspiration for the room, the lamps and mirror. Yes, thanks HomeGoods for all these items! It's cool how the wall artwork is reflected in the mirror.|
|As a former teacher, reading is important. I've read to her a few times already, but plan to read to her every day once she arrives. Reading is fundamental!|
