It’s time for the #ProjectPinkRoom reveal. Skipping back again, this room was designed for one of my close girlfriends daughters. To pull this room together, I took to browsing Etsy – if you’ve been a long time reader, you’ll know that I’ve been doing “Etsy Find” posts since 2008. That site is my go to spot for unique items, and the fact that it’s online takes the stress out of me having to source unique items around the city. Because I was really sourcing a lot of items from Etsy in my initial design I reached out to Etsy to tell them about the project – and Etsy loved the idea of helping make over this girls room and gave us a few Etsy gift cards to go shopping with which helped with what I would consider the “layering” of the room. But to help really finish the room, my clients Mom + Dad chipped in for the rest. I think this is a really great example of how you can source the craziest fun stuff off Etsy, mix it with Big Box store items, and get a look that is truly special. To remind you, below is what we started with…
Above is what we had – which really, is awesome for anyone because of that headboard. But it needed some “finishing”. My girlfriend was not sure the pink walls she had painted a few years back was the right shade. I really thought it was perfect – the softer the better as it allows for bringing in punches of colour elsewhere. It’s all about the layering in my mind, and that’s what I came in to do…… So, here is what I did…………………………….
Drapery and Hardware – Tonic Living
The room is fun. It’s not serious, and it can grow with my little client as she gets older. If you wanted to tone down the room later on, you may one day replace the headboard with something in a linen. Easy switchups (and inexpensive changes) can be done down the road to make it less pink, and more grown up.
And there you have it! #ProjectPinkRoom complete.
