Plans for Kenley's Little Girl Room

We have recently been discussing the pros and cons of transitioning Kenley out of the crib.  While she is capable of climbing out, she doesn't, but she does like climbing in. The bigger issue is that before naps and bed she races for Ashlynn's bed or our own and tucks herself under the covers, closes her eyes, and fakes a snore - and refuses to get out.  We have her bed frame in the basement and it's a full size, I'm hoping the girls will just decide to sleep together which hopefully in turn keeps them from climbing into our bed.

I'm not looking to change her room drastically, just transition the space from nursery to bedroom.  Paint, curtains, closet, and dresser will all stay put, so I'm looking to find bedding that will coordinate.  I'm looking to stick to the peach, aqua, and lavender hues and wouldn't mind some playful or whimsical touches since she is a little girl.  Unlike Ashlynn and her obsession with bunnies, Kenley seems to love all things equally.  Teddy bears, rainbows, unicorns, ice skates, mermaids, animals, and circles, she has no direction... or clue what is even happening.

Here are a few bedding design boards I hope fit the space.

star pillow | blush pillow | floral pillow | unicorn | sheets | quilt | duvet

It's hard finding children's bedding with peach versus baby pink.  I have fallen in love with this quilt, despite its hefty price tag and the fact it has so much texture and all the colors in her room.  Instead of the mermaid sheets shown to coordinate with it, I would pair with the Starla sheet set which has an angel princess riding a unicorn. The mint and soft pink coordinates perfect and adds that touch of whimsy for a little girl.  The duvet cover is great because it's a soft blush and steal.  Add in a few throw pillows for good measure and a new unicorn friend to snuggle at bed.

I geeked out a bit when I found this Rifle Paper Co-esque floral bedding set at Target of all places.  Which shouldn't be a surprise, because duh, Target is awesome.  I already have similar art in her room and feminine and girly were the words I previously used to describe the nursery.  You can't get much girlier than flowers, hearts, and tiny dancers.

Going the opposite of option one's soft muted colors, this floral duvet packs a bright punch and would definitely give the room some personality.  The coordinating sheets and a solid quilt to calm it down.

So, help me decide- which is your favorite??
