This is the prettiest room in our home and definitely a labour of love. I created this lovely room for my sweet daughter Scarlett. When she turned 2 I started thinking about getting her a ‘big girl’ bed and also her own room. Her wishes were very simple - pink! She is a very girly girl who loves ballet, singing, nail polish, dresses, lipstick, sparkles…and with her I learned to embrace pink. It was so much fun to create this little space of hers.
I wanted the room to have a neutral base, so the room could grow with her or be easily changed later into a guest room. I chose the wallpaper first: black and white oversized peonies. I don’t know why, but when I saw it I loved it and decided I’d create the design around it. The great thing about this wallpaper is that it is removable. How good is that!
After that I decided on wall colours. Or walls were creamy white and they definitely didn’t look good with fresh whites and greys on our new wallpaper. I find beautiful light grey that compliments the wallpaper and started painting the wall. No need to say that little brown eyes were following my every step. Scarlett came into a room while I was painting the wall and asked: Is that grey? Don’t you know that my favourite colour is pink?
I needed to explain that all other things in room will be pink. She wasn’t happy. But with time furniture start coming in, we bought pink canopy, I ordered few beautiful artworks, we got pink velvet bedding and room started to get the shape. Scarlett was happier. She would still complain about the wall colour now and then. We put in the little desk with magnet board, pink seat and after few months of waiting our gorgeous pink couch arrived! That was the last thing that we were waiting for and her room is finally finished!
She loves to invite friends in and she says now: Come to my beautiful room!
