First of all, shout out to ERIN!!! I am so excited she asked me to share!! I love Erin’s blog. In fact, it is the first blog that I subscribed to- and I have never stopped it coming into my email:-) I am a little jealous that she is going on a baby moon. I never did that, and 16 years later, I wish I had. Haha!
Below, I will share some photos of a room I recently installed for a 10- year-old girl. She is one of four (2 girls and 2 boys) and her older sister already had a gorgeous headboard, so we couldn’t compete. The great thing is that her sister chose lavender and lime green so my client had TURQUOISE and fuchsia all to herself. We did bring in the lime green so that the rooms can relate to each other- Hi sister’s room!
I don’t have many clients who choose such a fun palette. The mixture of such strong and vibrant colors was a wonderful balancing act. It could have been a cacophony, but I think grounding the room with gobs of white helped. The room is such a happy room, I can’t stand it! Just like the reveals on HGTV, I was there when she saw the room. Her smile lit up her entire face and I was so happy and relieved:-) Even with a 10-year-old client, I manage to worry about the reaction!
Enough chatting, here are some project pictures. I adore the new fuchsia bed that I had made. Finding the turquoise tape in the correct width was a project, but worth the toil. The turquoise pillow is made from a new Jonathan Adler fabric.
I put lamby on this table to take a picture so you could see it better.
As many of you know, I am obsessed with Oomph. Every room needs a little Oomph and this room got the darling pillow with the pom-poms. Their fabric is such great quality! (To see another room in this home that has some more Oomph click here.)
Did you see the Quadrille Zig Zag patent leather wallpaper behind the bulletin board? This was left over from my master bathroom. It brings the turquoise to the other side of the room. And, yes, I said patent leather. It is shiny and bounces light all over- just like the white patent leather ottoman. The little acrylic wheelie desk chair is fun too. I went up and down on it. Yes, I am the same height as a 10-year-old so I just had to adjust everything to my size!
