New house, new furnishings. My three-year-old daughter had outgrown the colorful nursery we designed in our old house and wanted a purple "big girl room." Achieving her dream was no easy task, because this is the "before" we started with --- a dark, cabin-like bedroom previously occupied, decorated, and loved by an outdoorsy teenage boy:
That's a lot of knotty pine, right???
We're still working on accessorizing the space, but I wanted to give you a sneak peek of part of the room to show what a heckuva lot of Benjamin Moore Atrium White paint can do. It's the same color used on the millwork through our new home, and the color I chose for the paneling in the adjacent playroom remodel.
With a new Pottery Barn Kids Catalina double bed, PBK lilac bedding, a new nightstand we bought raw and painted Atrium White, and a simple PBK bedside lamp, the room now looks fresh, youthful, light, and cheerful, just like my three-year-old:
The Little Castle black-and-ivory Central Park toile glider in the corner was repurposed from my eldest's old nursery and accessorized with purple and cream silk throw pillows.
The frame over the bed reminds me of the Organic Bloom frames I used in my youngest daughter's nursery, but I actually bought it unfinished from Cut It Out and painted it lilac. The photograph was taken at my daughters' joint Woodland Fairy birthday party last summer:
The old laminate desktop benefitted from a DIY treatment like I used in the playroom: I used thick amethyst wrapping I paper I had leftover from my youngest's christening party, under a $35 glass top. Lavender crystal drawer knobs and the lavender-trimmed Napa ruffle chair from PBK complete the look.
That's it for now. Check back again soon for more pictures and details! Have a great week!
