Birdie’s Wallpaper Room + What’s Next

Birdie’s wallpaper is up and we’re each simply so enthusiastic about each single inch, wing, and leaf of it. In case you haven’t caught up on what it’s like to offer a whole lot of design management to a really color-driven and extremely opinionated nearly 7-year-old, learn this publish (and this publish about my present philosophy on designing my youngsters’ rooms). I’m making an attempt to contain her a lot, rejoice her fashion and enthusiasm for shade without having it appear like a unicorn-pokemon-lava-lamp-showroom (I’m not being imply, their curiosity in that stuff received’t final). So after a lot deliberation (and naturally me curating), we each agreed on this unimaginable wallpaper by Schumacher (Butterfly Baudin) and I used to be ELATED that we had a jumping-off level that would preserve us centered on a shade palette and magnificence whereas giving her SO a lot shade and the life that she actually needed. She’s even saying issues like, “Effectively, possibly this must be our daring second and preserve that quieter” which as you’ll be able to think about is filling me with a lot pleasure (and sure, after all, I notice that’s my ego speaking – however you’ll be able to’t assist however really feel good when your youngsters wish to be such as you and speak such as you). So at the moment we’ll present you a number of different issues within the works for this room, which could embrace a turquoise dresser 🙂

Earlier than – TWO YEARS AGO!!!

In fact, this took a very long time to get the place we’re at the moment. We thought that the second ground might be simply up to date with new carpet and paint till we realized that every one {the electrical} needed to be up to date. Then as soon as the partitions have been opened to rewire the home, we dialed it in with the appropriate insulation, strengthened it in each approach, and put in contemporary drywall, electrical, and plumbing.

We painted all of the doorways Upward SW 6239, selected the blue striped carpet and the white paint all earlier than we had chosen the wallpaper (that is the way it goes with renovation, they don’t wait so that you can resolve on future decor to decide on different extra everlasting finishes that contain subcontractors RIGHT NOW, particularly with lead occasions concerned just like the shades and the carpet). However I’m really pleased with all of it for now – it’s working collectively superb. At occasions I want the white paint of the window casing was a bit creamier, and positive, the blue door might be brighter to match the wallpaper nevertheless it’s not bothering me sufficient to do something about it proper now.

It’s simply so candy and magical:) It’s an instantaneous vibe, that’s going to be really easy and enjoyable to construct on. Transferring ahead I simply give her the paint deck and let her select the colour so long as it “matches” one of many colours on the partitions. It’s nearly just like the wallpaper is fixing a whole lot of our issues. Did I desire a extra delicate wallpaper? Possibly. Would I select to color a bunch of furnishings sizzling pink, teal, and purple? Not for me. However that is EXACTLY how I used to be after I was little, actually solely altering within the final ten years.

I like the natural nature of the wallpaper with the striped carpet and the diamond window sample – all of them simply distinction and work so effectively collectively.

What’s Subsequent?

I discovered this mattress on craigslist and snagged it in order that we might paint it a wild shade (I don’t wish to put money into a brand new piece that may be a wild shade, so portray a thrifted discover is a good compromise for my colourful little woman). It’s a full mattress, Jenny Lind-style, and he or she beloved it A LOT. I checked that field shortly (though, I now want it have been a queen so it might be a again up visitor room for a pair if we wanted, however oh effectively).

The Dresser…

Then I discovered this dresser (and its “tall boy” brother), $200 for each additionally on FB Market. She is so cute and prepared for a makeover. I’m giving Birdie once more nearly free reign on the colour so we snagged our Sherwin Williams paint deck and he or she shortly selected sizzling pink, however has since modified her thoughts to purple.

She’s VERY into the purple world of violets, lavenders and never the grayer variations or aubergine. We’re speaking BRIGHT lavender. Jury remains to be out 🙂

The room is fairly darn candy and this woman received’t cease doing cartwheels 🙂

We’re planning on beginning to paint the furnishings subsequent weekend, and I’ll doubtless do it flawed as a result of I’ve poor persistence. So I’m going to begin on the mattress (as a result of its simpler, regardless of the turned wooden – it received’t chip as simply if carried out poorly) after which take extra time with the dresser since it would get extra manhandling. I hope you’re prepared for some wacky wacky colours 🙂 We’re each VERY excited. xx
