When my first child, a precious girl I named Sophia, was born, I spent time decorating her room. I painted a flower stencil on the wall and picked out pretties. It was so fun to decorate for a little girl.
Anya came along and she slept in a crib in our room for a while and then we had Karina and had to move! Coming into this house, I used the same bedding I used in Sophia's old room (which I redecorated again when she was about 3). Karina slept in the guest room in Sophia's old crib with no real space of her own to decorate. :(
One day I heard Anya say to a playdate, I don't really like my room and she kept making excuses about her room. I felt so sad. We have been in our house for over 2 years and she never said anything like that to me. I knew it was time to make it pretty. We moved Karina into the room once she outgrew her crib and so to give my 2 girls the same love I had given my first in decorating her space made me happy.
Here is Sophia's old room.
and here is the bedroom in the new house for Anya and Karina. Anya didn't like the color on the walls at all.
So Anya and I started our consultation together and here is what we came up with. She wanted a pink/purple room. We started with the bedding. A cute set from Target.
Then I found this inspiration room from Pinterest and this is how it all came together! 3 coats of paint including the ceiling. The color was Sweet Illusion by Behr with primer.
