I loved aqua, green and purple. Once we moved here, the house seemed to call for a different look, red reigned supreme and the pastels of the past were just that...
...until the kids became old enough to voice their own decorating opinions. My how quickly those pastels returned. Like any good controlling mom with decorating OCD, I fought it at first, but the bottom line is, I want my children to be comfortable in their own spaces and they do look really nice. Those kids actually have good taste!
I have already featured some aspects of this room before, for example the super simple ribbon valances I made...
...and my daughter's own crafty desk do over.
I've even featured her mirrors.
Girls like mirrors!
This winter, I used my leftover valance fabric and made panels for the windows. I didn't even sew them. They are wrapped around the second rod and pinned. We are a fickle family and I know that come May they will be coming down!
I found this fun initial letter on the check out line at some home décor store, although for the life of me I cannot remember which one ~ ah middle age! It was so easy to apply and it will come off with a hair dryer. I just love the elegance it adds to the room and it ties in well with her other black accessories.
Black is very sophisticated mom, in case you didn't know.
Her beautiful bed is the focal point and rightfully so; she loves that paisley bedding.
I have to say that overall, I am very happy with the way this room turned out. When it is clean, I am actually thrilled with the result! Of course, it has been like this for quite a while now, so I would say that change is imminent!
Don't tell my daughter, but I'm kind of leaning toward red...
