My latest obsession with the colors coral and gold won in my recent room re-design for my daughter, Ashlyn. Repainting old furniture (how fabulous is that headboard), and new bedding from Caden Lane, all came together in the perfect big girl room that can grow with her for years to come.
I'm obsessed with gold dots right now. And the color coral. And aqua. And ruffles. (Okay, basically anything BUT chevron!) So when our new bedding came out, as soon as I saw the Lovely Coral Lace bedding print, I knew it was meant to be in this room. Plus, her old room had one of those white trees painted on the wall... and let's be honest... that's soooo 2011. I'm a sucker for a new trend!
My design style is anything that inspires me in the moment! I love to try new trends, and even better is starting one!
Oh! This is my favorite part. First, I have to give complete credit to this wonderful local artist who re-finishes old furniture pieces. You just can't find pieces like that regal headboard in any store these days (everything starts to look the same), plus it adds style and originality to the room. The color inspiration definitely came from Caden Lane's new big kid bedding collection. And my obsession with gold dots. :-)
The gold dots on the main wall are actually vinyl stickers! Usually I frown on using stickers, they sometimes can look cheap, and don't have a 3D feel to them. But, the thought of painting 100 gold dots made me sweat! These stickers were so easy to apply, and look even better in person!
