This is my daughters bedroom about a year and half ago …
Since then we’ve taken her carpet up, she now has hardwood floors, changed her window coverings (and installed new windows) and added a locker to her room. A stand alone, vintage locker – painted white. If it were day time I’d take a photo to show you – for now, just imagine it.
This weekend we’ll be repainting her walls – and the wonderful wall decal of the dandelion is no more so maybe we’ll do a new one with the new paint. (It was a one time use deal)
Now. Please tell me what to do.
She wants her walls in the purple family, which is just fine by me – but it has to be muted. Think an elephant grey with a purple undertone. I want to do her room so she can grow into it for the next 10 years and not feel like she’s living in a barbie playworld. Also? I hate Barbie playworlds.
We need a rug, I’ll be repainting an old brass headboard for a new bed (so her brother can have hers, RIP crib) and I was thinking this:
Here’s one pallet I like:
Here’s another – I like the Ash Violet.
I like this turquoise for the bed frame (Gem Turquoise), or something similar …
However, Aaron, the husband, would prefer to paint the new headboard something along the lines of a very dark purple, almost black …
Only a little darker.
I like my idea better – with a punch of color like that in the room, but maybe that’s not making it “grow up” at all. So help please.
Feel free to link to things you think I should know, look at, buy. I buy paint tomorrow, so it’s down to the wire!
