When we first moved into our house, I set out to make sure our kids rooms were awesome! I wanted them perfectly put together and to reflect their individual personalities. All the while, doing it on a budget. Needless to say, things change and children grow. And for now, my daughter has a room that is as bold and fierce as she is. It is the ultimate DIY girls bedroom.
I allowed my children to choose the paint color for their own rooms. It was very telling and very indicative of who each of them are. My son chose a very neutral beige. My daughter, not so much. The color is Kismet by Sherwin Williams. And it is bold and dark, a purple like no other purple, but she loves it.
I have tried to keep it light by using white furniture and hot pink accents. But with only 1 window, it is still dark. I added an accent stencil to her bed wall in the hopes to lighten it up too. It came out great, but it is still dark. I got these great x-benches at Homegoods to put at the bottom of her bed. Just a little jolt of a deeper purple and the sheen of a velvet.
Remember the chair makeover? I think it’s my favorite part of the room. The luscious hot pink velvet fabric with the sparkly pillow just makes my day!
I have added a mirror to reflect some of the light and kept the furniture white. The deer heads were fun little buys, also from Homegoods, that I sprayed white. The blinged out purple chandelier is from Joss and Main.
I painted an old desk white and a chair that my neighbor gave me got a makeover of white and hot pink. It’s a great spot for my daughter to be creative or work on her touch screen computer.
I know that this room will change. She will probably want a different desk or dresser, different paint and bedding. But for now, she loves it and I have done a lot of work to get it here.
