We wanted to mix and match bold patterns like Chevron and Ikat to create a fresh and bright space with colors little girls love.
We painted the walls with coordinating Annette Tatum paint in Sorbet + Corneliam makes them really pop. To achieve the white stripe in between, we just peeled off the painters tape. We placed an Expedit Ikea Bookshelf on it's side under the exposed closet to have a place for storage and to be used as a bench. Instead of having a fish in your typical aquarium we placed a Betta fish in a pretty apothecary jar from HomeGoods. For only $10 - it was much cheaper. We found lots of frames at yard sales, thrift stores and Michaels and sprayed painted them in Valspar's Spray Paint for our liking. We created a reading nook inside the closet which will be shown off exclusively on cupcakeMAG. We bunched together paper lanterns from The TomKat Studio Shop and pom poms to create a little something pretty over the bed which brought in even more color! We included lots of little prettiest like the Clairebella Personalized Zebra Tray from Layla Grayceto add little touches of flair. When sharing space, don't put everything out for display. Only a few special things like a pretty doll - we love this one, which just so happens to match the room perfectly from Blabla Kids.
We have to give big thanks to our contractor, electrician and painter, Andrew Koon - the husband of cupcakeMAG Editor, Casi as well as our amazing photographer, Kim Flores of Whimsy Baby Photography. This project wouldn't have been complete without them!

Don't be afraid to mix and match. Look for things you can re-vamp and give second life too. Shop thrift stores, yard sales and look for Craigslist freebies to make your own. To create a higher bed, add a box spring with the mattress even though this bed doesn't need one like we did with the Serta Mattresses.
