I'm happy to announce I'm participating in a fun room make-over series with a lovely bunch of talented bloggers. We are all picking one room in our home to redecorate over a 6 week period. Since we just moved into our home I have lots of rooms that need attention, but I've decided to go with my daughter's room. Before we sold our house, I was planning to turn her nursery into a big girl room so I've been gathering ideas for a while. Here's what the room looks like now. I'll be keeping a lot of the stuff in here and switching a few things out.
Here's a general idea of the direction I'm heading, but I've been known to change my mind so who knows what the end result will be!
I'll be pulling a lot of inspiration from my daughter's play kitchen. It has most of the colors I want to include so it's a good inspiration piece. I plan to repaint a french provincial style dresser that I already have in a light greige color with gold hardware like the World's Away chest above. I'm open to color recommendations if you have any! I'm using an ornate mirror I have in my stash, spray painted gold, to go above the dresser. It's sort of similar to the one above. We bought a teepee for our daughter for Christmas last year, but we never really set it up because there wasn't a place for it. Her new room has the perfect spot for it so I'm excited to get it all setup as a sweet little reading nook for her. Little miss requested a pink room, so I'm going with a sort of barely there raspberry, similar to Sherwin Williams Anemone but lighter. I'm also using this chair from my old office because the color ties in perfectly. We also used it for her monthly pictures when she was a baby so it has special meaning.
I'll be posting updates throughout the six week period and doing a full reveal at the end.
Here's the full list of participants. Can't wait to follow along!
