New York, NY
We just moved into a lovely, but MUCH SMALLER apartment. Molly's old room, which she'd had since she was 2, was more than twice the size of the new one. So, to make it seem worth her while, we let Molly choose her own colors. One wall was to be painted orange, yes, tangerine orange (okay, the "one wall" part was influenced by her loving parents!), and the others a very pale pink. The whole room is outfitted in hot pink and orange, with a breath of black and white to tame it all down. While Molly was the boss, she had lots of "help" from her parents; and from a brilliant architect/designer, Roberto Gil and resourceful decorator.
