When it comes to design style, I’ve always been drawn to an eclectic mix that feels comfortable, including antiques, chipping paint, soft colors and mixed patterns.
As I’ve mentioned in previous blogs posts like this one , the wheels in my head are constantly spinning and I’m thinking about how I can improve the rooms in my house. The kids’ rooms are no exception. As the littles get older, they certainly have their own ideas and opinions of how they want their rooms to look, so even though I’ve got a laudry list of projects on the go, I’ve decided to go ahead and help transform Belle’s room into a space she loves and can grow into. She’s now eight years old, so she is the most definite about her likes and dislikes so I don’t have as much freedom as I do with my younger kids. I’m thinking I can persuade her with some sweet treats to see things my way, or to at least be open to my ideas (not that I would ever bribe my child with candy…) She’s told me that she wants one blue wall, one yellow wall, one purple wall and one red wall. I’m in trouble!
In order to plant a few seeds to steer her in the direction I’m going, I’ve been pulling up some images from Pinterest and have somewhat succeeded in getting her interested in my ideas. Here is some inspiration from around the web that has really inspired me to go in this direction with her room. Fingers crossed that she goes for it!
