Work starts on my Daughters Bedroom!

Well, I've been wanting to do something to my daughters room for some time now... finally I got started!!! It's a decent size room, nothing too big. However she had the queen bed in there and it was taking up ALL the floor space that she had! Her 7th birthday is coming up this weekend and I thought it was time to get her a new quilt and give her some pretty big girl colors. She wants hot pink, bright green and blue... you know all the colors that make my cringe! I was afraid she would have it look like a circus in there! I've been looking at different quilts and duvets on Pottery Barn, but couldn't decide. Check out what I've done so far...

This is her old duvet cover from Target. It's the shabby chic line... I love it, but it's a little worn out now! She's had it on her bed since she was 3, so it was time for a change. This is the queen bed, it will soon take a ride to the guest room! Note the paint colors on the wall next to the window! Hmmm... what color to go with???

Well here it is... I LOVE IT!!! I found this quilt at Target! They have the best stuff!!! I put this on her bed while she was at school.

As you can see... she LOVES it too! We moved it to my bedroom to see it with the wedgewood grey walls. i really do love the colors together (pic looks a little more blue). I think maybe a shade or two lighter. I really did NOT want to use the same color on the walls as our room though... ANY SUGGESTIONS???

After cleaning out (aka... throwing out) a ton of stuff from her room, I moved the bed from my sons room over. It's a full size... lots more floor space. Moved some furniture around and decided to call it a day! I will be doing a lot more to this room... so stay tuned! We are trying to come up with a wall color now. I just don't want anything bright on the walls since there is already a lot going on. I would be very open to suggestions from any of you! Thanks for looking!

  1. I would pull the aqua color from the quilt and paint that on the walls. You could lighten it up if you think it's too bright, but aqua goes with everything and it's easy to find accessories.

  2. I agree with the aqua! A very light one :) I LOVE the bedding it's perfect!!! Target is my fav store!

  3. Thanks ladies... I'm going to start googling aqua now, hehe!!!

  4. Bedding is precious, and just moving the furniture around does wonders! Itching to see whats next!

  5. That quilt is so pretty! What great colors to work with. I think aqua walls would be stunning. We painted my daughter's walls in teal and brown and it's my favorite room in the house. The colors are so rich and so fun!

  6. LOVE the new quilt from Target! That's where all 3 of my kiddos bedding is from. Thank you so much for your sweet comment on my blog! And your master bedroom is beautiful! I'm jealous of all the space you have in there!

  7. oh, and I'm a new follower and I love the alabama pillow dress in your etsy! (We live in AL about 5 min from campus!)

  8. Oh how precious! I love that quilt. It looks like your little one does too :) I would have just drooled over that adorable bedding when I was her age! Great choice. Can't wait to see what else you do! xo

  9. Looks fantastic! I agree a light aqua would be just perfect!
