This post has been a long time coming. We actually got most of the work done in the room before we moved in, oh 3 months ago; however, it wasn’t until this weekend that we finally got around to hanging up curtains and book shelves, hence the hold up on this post. Sophie’s new room is pretty much just like her old room with the exception of one noticeable difference: the walls are pink! Eeeekk! A pink Paris themed room was exactly the color palette I was trying to avoid when we first designed her room 2 years ago. Pink just seems so expected. That’s why I originally had picked a Tiffany Box blue color for her walls that I absolutely adored. We agreed, however, that when we moved Sophie was now old enough to pick out her own wall color and to no surprise to any of us she picked pink. Fairy Tale Pink by Valspar to be exact. At least she had the decency to pick a pale pink.
The room isn’t exactly 100% done yet. We still need to replace her light fixture. I’d also like the bed to have presence in the room, so I’d like to finally get around to getting Sophie a box spring and a bed skirt.
The pallet book shelves are still one of my favorite elements in the room. The space next to the book shelves though is still rather empty, so I’m considering making her a custom cork board like this one from PB teen.
The dresser needs to be staged a little more but otherwise this area is coming together nicely. And here’s your reminder of where this room started:
So much brighter and girlier now!
