My only restrictions (besides a budget that my husband helped me follow :) ) were that the wall color and the curtains could not be changed. So with that in mind, we began adding color, texture and fun accessories. The thing about putting this room together was that all the pieces were collected over time. I bought them separately over a series of months or reused things we had in other places of our home.
I love how the room sparkles when the chandelier is all lit up.
And the art, well few months back we were at Ikea and I found this clock decal and wall clock. I bought it on the spot, along with the 'striped swimming art' and furry faux 'sheep skin'. At that time, I didn't even have a color scheme or bedding for her room. But I knew these items would fit in perfectly somehow because who doesn't need a grandfather clock?!
|That adorable chair is from Pottery Barn Teens online. So comfy!|
A plant stand from Hobby Lobby- just needed a coat of gold spray paint to be turned into a side table.
Her bedding is from Target's Xhilaration line. The bright colors work so well with her pastel pink walls. The sheets are purple zebra print, also from Target.
Across the curtains I hung this sweet bunting that was given to me at blog conference by Lindsey over at "The Pleated Poppy". The bunting used to hang in my craft room, but it is so much happier in my girl's tween room.
I made some art of my own, fabric stretch in embroidery hoops. (The lamp and shade are from Target!) The 'hello' was done using my Silhouette Cameo and a burlap canvas from Michael's. The framed 'you will do great things' is a free printable I put in a Target frame. You can find it at "Entirely Eventful Day". And I made the 'cat eye glasses' also using my Silhouette and some scrapbook paper.

Probably the best part of this room is that I decorated it while Afton was away for the weekend at church camp with Jeff. When she came home on Sunday, I got to surprise her "Extreme Makeover Style"! It was a pretty awesome reveal.
And that smile on her face... what can I even say??! This is why we decorate :)
It is more than a pretty room. It is a gesture of caring and love to create a space, a little nest, for our loved ones.
Hope you have a great week my friends.
