Before I began this project, Faith's bedroom was empty. It was painted a peanut beige, but it is a good size room with high ceilings, though, like many kid's rooms, it is a box. The first thing I wanted to do was paint the room and brighten it.
I decided on a cream for the top ("Muslin Wrap" by Valspar) and a blue-green (""Sparkling Sage" by Valspar) for the bottom. My husband installed the chair-rail molding and this made the biggest difference in the room.
Here is the finished room! The first thing you see when you enter are the fun curtains. They have every
color that we used throughout the room, so they pull everything together. The room is contemporary,
fun, unconventional and playful.
There is a slight, 1 inch difference in the frame height of every other picture; this references the pattern of the shadow boxes on the opposing wall, and keeps it from being too serious.
|See! He can hold books or the sweetest little girl on the planet!|
|I mean, really, that is just too cute! By the way,|
her talented mom MADE that dress (and Gwenna's
lamb costume for Halloween, too).
A girly little hook to hang her coat or hat on....I had to include
a few very feminine touches, it is a little girl's room after all.
The bench is actually a bookshelf turned on it's side with a custom cushion on top. It is the perfect storage solution in a child's room, and makes the most of the limited space for seating.
|The homeowner did an incredible job on this cushion!|
Ceiling fans are usually ugly, but not this one! We live in the desert
so, like it or not, fans are just a part of life here.
We are still trying to figure out how to make this work. The homeowner bought this
perfect doorknob at Anthropologie, but the back plate is too small for the existing
hole in the door. Hmmm, we will have to get creative.
|I love the fact that these boxes can be changed out seasonally!|
|The perfect little snuggle spot.|
