We are super thrilled to share this room by the amazing Tara Swanson @ourswanlife !
This super talented mama is not only a professional pretty party maker, but she has also created a wonderful bedroom for her little girl filled with magical motifs.
Enjoy reading the interview and shopping the look on Tinitrader!
You are not only an interiors gal but you run your own party business too! What has drawn you to the children's Market?
Yes, Parties Made Pretty that's me!! They both sure do me busy, but go hand in hand for me, Harper is my muse in all my styling I do now. I've always loved buying pieces for the home and ... and my wardrobe and the styling that goes along with it, my background is actually in Visual Merchandising (I used to work for Country Road & Glassons) but since Harper came along it kind of all switched to her, but I'm not complaining because its all saaaah cute!
Tell us about a bit about Harper and her Wishlist for her dream bedroom?
Harper is a girly girl, everyday she asks to wear her 'Tutu Ballerina' and she dances around the house! I wanted to to be a dreamy, calming space perfect for a little girl.
I personally love a soft colour palette, Ive been known to paint everything white so the dusty pink in her room would have been super out there for me pre baby, but I absolutely adore the colour and I want to paint out front door the same colour... but somehow my husband is no so into the idea!! haha
Since she's only two, the only thing Harper 'chose' for her bedroom were her sheets, but they fit for a mini ballerina ...naturally :)
Which piece of decor or furniture did you choose to invest in the most and why?
I would say her bed, mattress and bedding, we did the same with ours... theres nothing like a good night sleep, right?!!
You collected and created pieces for two years when creating the room! Which ones are your favourites?
Ohhh that's so hard I'll have to choose a few, I love the floral swan print made by my sister for her first birthday, the palm springs peg doll created for her by Rita & Felix & it was on her second birthday cake, the doll pram a gift from her Grandparents, the dolls house that was a gift from a family friend for my baby shower.
Her collection of favourite books, Kiki & Coco by Nina Gruener, Coco Chanel, Isabel Sanchez, Swan by Laurel Snyder and my favourite of all On The Night You Where Born, I read this book to another child while I was pregnant and it always got me teary, haha!
Then of course her lace canopy its just so dreamy!!!
Which Instagram accounts do you love to follow that we may not of heard of?

The favs that I always check out are @GlitterGuide, @PartyWithLenzo, @SassAndSpice @HubbleAndDuke, @RyleeAndCru, @MamaDisrupt, @TheBlackPosy and of course @PartiesMadePretty hahahaha.
