Amanda, This bedroom is special. It's got so much: big windows that look out onto the city, concrete walls that make it feel cool, floral wallpaper that makes the room warm and defines the feel of the space, a modern bed and a vintage nightstand, then finally so many personal pieces that make it only Perle's room - like the gallery wall and the pictures of family and friends on her bookcase and the personalized blanket and the wall hanging (made by her grandmother.)

When you meet Perle you have the same impression. She is an almost-three-year old who exhibits all the dichotomies that her room possesses in all the right ways. She is small but mighty, she is the cool toddler that can also be super sweet and caring, she can run with the boys or the girls, she looks like a 2 year old but has the mind of a 5 year old. She's amazing. She's also my god-daughter.
