Today I am sharing some older photos of what my 7 year old daughter's room used to look like. I wish I had better photos of this room to share, but they were taken 5 years ago, so posting them on a blog was nowhere even close to being on my mind. This room was bold, and really nontraditional for a toddler room, but I just loved it. The wall color was taken from the lead fabric, which in addition to an animal toile print, also had a pinstripe of deep and medium rouge pink. I am usually a proponent of wrapping the wall color up onto the ceiling (it really heightens the room in most cases), but with this color I chickened out. So instead we painted it the trim color and I ordered vinyl stick-on polka dots to mimic the white polka dots on the area rug. The deep wall color worked in this room for one main reason - light. This room is at the front of the house and has two large windows. All the light that floods the room helped to offset the boldness of the wall color.
This room has been on my mind because I am starting to get my thoughts together to redesign my youngest daughter's bedroom. She now resides in this very room, but it doesn't look anything like this anymore. It was a somewhat Shabby Chic sort of nursery, but now has turned into a neglected mish-mash of a toddler room. I am just in the planning stages now. I never seem to have too much trouble deciding what I want to do, just tons of trouble finding exactly what I have pictured in my mind! I will keep you all posted as it progresses!
Have a great weekend, and don't be afraid to be bold in your design choices!
