Natalie (19 months)
Fairfax Station, VA
We recently bought my parents' home and the room we decided to give Natalie was my old room, which I decorated when I was 16. Out of my laziness to primer and paint everything, I decided to keep the lavender walls and dark blue trim. The Laura Ashley floral wallpaper border had to go, as well as the dark blue ceiling. Once I saw Penelope's room
featured on ISLY's blog, with the scalloped border, I was inspired to paint a similar border to help lighten up the room. I wanted to re-use a lot of the items from Natalie's old room, which was brown, pink and green. When I found the matryoshka doll fabric that combined almost all the colors I wanted, I used it loosely as inspiration for the rest of the room.
