Hello, Turquoise Lovers. I’m Camille from The Vintique Object. I’m thrilled to pieces to be guest posting for Erin today because House of Turquoise was the first design blog I ever visited! That is a true story and let me tell you, I was entranced!
In addition to my own design blog, I’ve recently started a little decorating/organizing business. I am excited to share a recent project — a little girls’ bedroom belonging to six year-old twins.
Down came the dated 80’s wallpaper and the room was professionally painted. You can just see a peek of Benjamin Moore’s Palladian Blue on the ceiling. I added a bit of turquoise paint to the Palladian Blue to to make a custom mix for the vintage beds, which were an unsightly electric blue color when I found them.
Believe it or not, these ring pulls made from hardware store parts! Total cost for each runs about $1.40. I have to thank Sarah M. Dorsey Designs for coming up with this brilliant idea. I just tweaked the idea a bit to keep the pulls from snagging clothes on the inside of the drawer.
On the wall where the dressers were located, I made small vanities/desks flanking a bookcase I snagged from the garage. Above each desk is pegboard painted to mimic the bedding. The pegboard helps the girls to organize their jewelry and and hair accessories.
My goal was to create a fresh, light-filled, and organized space — not too girly and one that can grow with them. I think turquoise fits the bill for that exactly!
Thanks so much for having me today, Erin.
You just can’t go wrong with turquoise!
