Sweet Blue and Pink Bedroom



So here is the reveal of the little 7 year old girl's bedroom that I finished the other week.  She specifically wanted hot pink and blue.  And that she got.  One of the great things about the Annie Selke Links fabric is that it is juvenile enough, but grown up enough to get her through her teens.  She actually picked the fabric herself and I added the Floral to the mix, and the banding to the drapes and valance. 
Every Girl can use a Flokati Rug in her room!
We had the ottomans recovered and piped in the hot pink with the legs painted a fun blue.  And I recovered the lampshades to bring the floral up a notch and at eye level.


These sconces are perfect for this nook.
 For some reason I have never attempted this project, a mental block I suppose.  But,  I was inspired to cover the lampshade from a new blogger/ designer friends tutorial.  She makes it look super easy...which it is and all lampshades in my path are now at risk...watch out!  You must check out Whitney Mcgregor from Whim Interiors. Her blog is The Avarice and she has lots of great design tips and inspiration.

Anyway.  Have a great week.  We have started ours out with the stomach bug, and I have my brother's wedding that we leave for on Thursday...keep your fingers crossed the bug stays away.  I knew I should have knocked on wood when I proclaimed we had been so "free of sickness this year"...geash!

I've always loved that Annie Selke fabric and you're right it really has longevity as far as age is concerned. The room looks so cute and I bet you have a happy client. Off to check out Whitney's blog.

What a darling, yet sophisticated room. Your client has great taste and I love how you pulled it all together! Feel better and have fun at your brother's wedding!

Thanks for the mention Gretchen! ( I didn't mean for that to rhyme, sort of). This room is DARLING. I especially love the valence with contrast trim! So cute!! ;)
