The Girl Picked Blue

Well we’re about 2 months into the new home and one of the first makeovers I wanted to cross off the list was my daughter’s bedroom.

So this time around when I asked her what color she wanted her walls to be, she of course picked blue again… her favorite color. And I have to say that makes me happy since it beautifully complements her bedroom furniture and… well, it’s not pink.

And we need some window treatments and lighting (yeah, there’s only a socket there now).

But so far it’s amazing what a simple gallon of paint can do.

    I love your daughter’s bedroom furniture. The shape of the pieces is so bold and beautiful. The blue looks great on the walls.

      Her bedding is from Target! I’ve also seen tons of similar pintuck styles from Joss and Main. I actually just bought a queen size set from there for about $70! Included the skirt and 2 shams. LOVE it!
