Color Inspiration: I always said that if I had a girl I would never make a really 'girly' room. Well out popped my daughter (named Taylor) and I couldn't control myself - I fell off the girly wagon. I immediately painted her walls gray and pink and recently found an unusual piece of furniture that now houses the Madame Alexander dolls that my mom purchased for me as a little girl. Awwww.
Tip for Using Color: Create a mood board of colors that you want to use and stick with it. Unless of course you find a piece of furniture or accent that adds some Wow! Bam! Shazammm! Then you can stray. I give you permission.
Colors Used: Taylor's room is made of three light gray walls and one extra-girly wall painted Teaberry (6561) from Sherwin Williams. We then added layers of Lime, Lavender, Pinks, and Grays. Recently we had an old (and very ugly) bench refinished into an antique white and topped it with a gorgeous handmade grey and white chevron pillow with a touch of lavender piping. I love it so much now that I sort of want to steal it for my room.
Thanks for your colorful entry Julie and good luck!
