Lots of you have been
not so subtly commenting about seeing progress on Babygirl’s Room. I’ll admit I’ve been a bit overwhelmed with trying to complete her Big Girl Room makeover, and organize the posts for it. The projects have been completed in spurts and I’m way behind on keeping you updated. So I’ll just jump feet-first and start with the inspiration.
The design of my Son’s Room came quickly and easily to me, so I was nervous when I had absolutely NO IDEA what to do for my daughter’s transition from Nursery to Big Girl Room. So I took to the internets and scoured room pictures for inspiration….not little girl rooms, but gorgeous rooms in general. I saved close to 100 in an online file before I finally realized exactly what I wanted to do.
I knew I didn’t want a typical ‘little girl color,’ and these gorgeous aqua walls really bring the perfect blend of calm and neutral, but with plenty of fun.
And while I’m no stranger to color, I figured I’d stop with aqua and yellow. Until I spotted these images and my heart flew up into my throat (yes, pictures of pretty rooms affect me this way!)
Radish Pink combined with the aqua?! Yes, please! (Um yeah, the color combo is slightly familiar, seeing as how I hosed my blog down in it!!) And once I re-discovered this classic Domino room, I knew I’d found the design of Babygirl’s New Room!!
Jill Sorenson of Marmalade Interiors (and author of one of my favorite blogs Live Like You), blended the three colors beautifully. Her design convinced me the scheme of Aqua, Radish and Bright Yellow was the perfect combination of fun and vibrancy for my spunky Babygirl! I was instantly smitten….and inspired!
