Never, EVER, did I think I would paint a room blush pink. Yet, here we are and...I LOVE it! Now, let's get to the back story.
We moved into our beautiful, new (to us) home in March of 2020. Yes, right at the start of the pandemic. It was a tough time for our sweet girl, her whole world had been turned upside down in a matter of weeks. Once we were settled, I knew I wanted to make her room special and something that she would love as she grows up (I'm not crying...).
Her room at the new house has beautiful vaulted ceilings, two bright windows, and ample space to spread out. She had spent her time distance learning in our dining room this past year, but I was ready to reclaim my space and give her some much needed privacy (cue seven year old attitude). We were on a pretty tight budget as we are doing other projects around the house. Thank goodness for Target! We found the perfect desk, bookcases, and accessories. Great quality, affordable and so, so cute!
Together, we chose the perfect blush pink, Head Over Heels by Benjamin Moore. She squealed in delight as I painted all that luscious pinkness on the walls. I have to be honest, it felt a little pink overload at first. However, once we put everything back into the room and added those pops of turquoise...wow, I was a little jealous! I painted the wooden storage bins to match the turquoise in the throw pillow. They give that perfect pop of color in the book cases while still providing cute storage.
The dollhouse also received a little makeover. Fresh paint, some new furniture and decor. It's a favorite amongst my daughters friends when they come over for a playdate. And, let's be honest, me too.
What I love about paint is how it transforms a space for not a lot of money. It really allows you to be creative and bold. My daughter and I had a great time creating her new space together and I know it's something we will love for years to come.
