First I just want to say that the blog might be a little light on posts over the next week or so as we start this transition to WordPress. I’m really excited to move over there and also trying not to have a freak out. A project is always a good distraction, right?
The other night before bed our youngest daughter, little A told me this, “You need to paint my room, I’m tired of it looking like puke on the walls.” Yes, that is exactly what my seven year old said. Maybe she’s heard me talking about my purple poop bedroom walls before?
If you don’t know this girl, she is sassy yet quiet, smart as a whip, is very creative, loves fashion and looks like a little pixie fairy with small features and almost white blonde hair. When she was a baby she had sort of a large head which combined with her white hair made her look a little crazy and she always looked very serious. One day, a lady at church told me that she had never had a baby give her the death glare before, but little A sure liked to give it to people. She’s kind of feisty, perhaps like her mom. The poor girl always has crazy hair in the morning so I had to include a picture of it. She was about 3 weeks old when we decided to build the house most of these pics were taken in. I think of all her memories as a toddler when I think of that house.
So after being told she doesn’t like her walls that look like puke, I decided maybe I could start working on her room this weekend. She has this comforter from Target already, black and white zebra which reverses to pink cheetah.
I’m going to try and work with what we have already for the comforter and bed skirt. I thought maybe adding in some green at first with pink and black but then thought orange would look cool. For some reason, I don’t really have any green in my house, I just think green and I don’t work well together. Maybe it was forest green overload in the 1990′s that did me in, especially my husband and his favorite jeans which were forest green. It’s true, he was on the color jean craze before you all were. I tried to find a picture but I am afraid all the evidence may have been destroyed. Rats.
Moving on, here are a few pins I found for inspiration, orange and pink together, my new favorite color combo.
And of course, one of my faovrites, my friend Suzy from Saved by Suzy just finished her daughter Mary’s bedroom last month. Can you say, love it?!?!
I don’t really know if I like the black and white aspect mixed in with these two so I’ll be working out what exactly I’m doing over the next few days. I like the color combo, it’s fun, spunky, a little unexpected together and it just seems fitting for this little girl of mine who is also fun, spunky and a little unexpected. What do you think, do you like pink and orange together? Is it too modern/vintage for you?
