I am long overdue to post a tour of Mia’s room! I shared Joaquim’s room back in February and love how I can look back at these posts and see what our home was like at a point in time.
We moved into our current home New Year’s Day ( yes we are crazy) 2013. Mia was six months old! I just loved what we had done with her room in our previous home and just wanted to change the paint colors a bit, so we did just that.
Now, this may seem to simplify things yes? But no, that is not the case here where my husband dearest had made a custom stencil to border her room based off a DVF print of a dress I had bought for Mia when she was still living in my preggo belly. If you’ve known me for a while now, you know I work in retail and am a big fan of fashion. Diane Von Furstenberg is one of my all time fav designers and luck would have it that she launched a baby/kids line with Gap the year I was pregnant with my baby girl. So I of course bought her way too many adorable pieces and one of them had a print that was also on the shopping bag and Mike took that and made a stencil out of it! He is just the best isn’t he? In our first home he even made a light switch cover with the print on it, but the new one wasn’t as easy to create.
Now that you have a little background story, let’s start the tour!
First let me show you a pic from our previous home, when Mia was still sleeping in a crib, and I was not blogging, or on the blog radar much and def was not paying attention to picture quality as much. ha!
See? Bad, bad Bruna, you can’t even see the detail of that stencil! So here is a closeup of it in our current home with the new colors:
And here is her convertible crib at it’s final stage/ how her room is currently:

I like to call this Mia’s traveling dresser because there are trinkets from all over the world. The Eiffle tower is from when my mom went to Paris, the starfish from my trip to Florida last May, the wooden horse is from Sweden, the maraca from Brazil and the mouse ears from her Aunt Lizzy and Aunt Ann’s trip to Disney.
And there you have it, Mia’s room in a nutshell, hope you enjoyed the tour!
