Initial Suggestions
by: Richa

Hi Courtney,

You have not mentioned Myleigh's age or what kind of ideas you are looking for - shopping tips or do-it-yourself ideas etc.

These are some suggestions that come off the top of my head, Courtney.

You could paint the room a very light pink. Try out some of the wall paint ideas we have outlined in our book, Walls with Character.

For the walls, I suggest this 3 pc Wall art set from Target with flower and butterfly stencils all around the room. [My suggestion is to focus on flowers and butterflies as they can be part of the room decor for a longer time. Keep Dora as wall art so it easy to change when Myleigh outgrows the theme].

For the furniture: This beautiful Dora toddler bed with canopy will highlight the theme. Again buy bedding and extra sheets in a longer lasting floral design. [Alternately choose this toddler sleigh bed and add a Dora Bedding Collection to complete the look.

Add one more piece of Dora furniture, perhaps a Dora Toy Organizer or Chair Desk...and no more.

Finish the look with a full size Dora cuddle pillow that she is sure to fall in love with.

Land of Nod also has some sweet flowers/butterflies growth charts, if you want to add one.

Hope this helps.
