color splashed little girl’s room

Happy Monday, loves!

In 9 hours, I’ll be road tripping with the little ones
to visit my sis in North Carolina for 9 days,
so before I completely unplug,
I wanted to share some snapshots of projects
that I’ve been cranking out for Edyn’s room.

I know. I know.
It’s not my bedroom.
I decided to briefly press pause in there
to finish the twins’ rooms
before they start preschool on September 9.
The summer got away from me.
What happened to the month of July?!
Anyhow, if you know my style,
strong and bold colors aren’t in the mix.
I’ve dreamt of a little girl’s room with faded pinks and white
since I found out a baby girl was on the way.
Here’s the thing…
Edyn isn’t a faded pink child.
She’s my little hippie “Woodstock”,
(in a confident, not diva way),
little girl
who doesn’t want a pink room. 


While her (and Grey’s) favorite color is purple like her mama (aw!),
I decided to splash a little more color into her space…
Edyns Bedroom French Inspired Freckled Laundry 

…against soft grays and white, of course.

Now, I’m not saying this to be cute or exaggerated: 

My eyeballs go off like balls in a pinball machine in there at the moment. 
I just want my corneas to land somewhere, 
to move together in synchronicity, 
to find peace and harmony. 

While I have loved working with more color,
I can’t promise you that it won’t be edited down to splashes of purples
upon my return, but I’m gonna fight the good fight
and try to give my little sweetie a color splashed room,
inspired by European storefronts.

When planning Edyn’s room,
I created a Pinterest board filled with boutique storefronts
and asked her to choose her favorites, which were…

 Such a beautiful bakery.
I love the turquoise & chartreuse together!

Edyn has a great little eye for vibrant colors, doesn’t she?
They are all so belle!
(I should mention that looking AT and living WITH are entirely separate.)
When I return from vacation,
I have a twinkling fairy nightstand and a dollhouse to finish,
and then I’ll get to work on two more little projects
before putting a checkmark in the DONE box.
I hope you have a beautiful week!
What colors are your (or your little ones’) rooms?

  3. I’m in the midst of both out kids room redos right now. Elise has a pale teal room but it’s REALLY bright so I want to go neutral on the walls and add colors with accessories. I’ve been picking up crewel work pieces for a gallery wall in green, blues, pinks, and yellows! Everett’s room is going grayer or whiter on the walls (currently a cornflower blue color) with pops of green, orange, and red. Bedding is going to be tan and white with small mustard stripe plaid.

    How in the world was I not following you on Pinterest before now??!!
    My sons room is a faded aqua blue with lots of navy and white accents. Almost as much as I love vintage and French and I love coastal and nautical too. I wouldn’t do that much color in the rest of my house, but it was fun to play with it in his and I am really happy with the way it turned out!
    Sold our house this weekend though so I guess I’ll be starting all over on the decorating front soon. (I’m a little sad and yet also excited about that).
