I’ve got some big plans for changing Zoey’s room up from her pink, gray and yellow baby room to her big girl room! Here is a pic of her baby room at the old brady bunch house right before we moved. We are keeping the mid century modern white dresser, but most everything else (furniture) in her old room is finding a new home as of now (and the crib will be moving into Cash’s room).
And a pic of her new room (before we started any work in there) here at West Terrace. I LOVE the reading/window nook/dormer! So far we have pulled out the nasty carpet and all the trim and closet doors, patched primed and painted the walls (a fresh white), put in a new ceiling fan, and put in new modern trim. Carpet should be going in within a couple weeks and it will be a modern gray shag. I tried to press for laminate or wood flooring but Mike is really into carpet in the upstairs bedrooms for sound dampering and comfort. He won
Zoey’s a girly girl so we will still be incorporating pink (a dark sophisticated pink) into her new room, with accents of gray and gold! It will be a little mod, a little retro/mid century, and fun! I’m quite excited to add some gold into the room – Mike isn’t a fan so this is really the only room in the house where I can get away with it
Of course, I plan to wallpaper an accent wall in the room. I’m thinking either the actual nook or the two side walls surrounding the book that curve into the ceiling…I also plan to paint the bookcases a dark gray.
Here are some wallpaper options I’m toying with. I think this first one, pink toile, is the winner. It’s fun, whimsical, and a little mid century modern and retro! It’s from Spoonflower – a site which I discovered last week and I’m obsessed. You can design your own wallpaper/fabric, but if you’re like me and just want to pick designs from others, you can do that too. There are so many options! I’ve been looking for wallpaper for Zoey’s room for months and hadn’t really found anything I loved until I found these.
I also love this option harmony gray and coral, maybe as a fabric instead of a wallpaper…some pillows for the bed?
And this one is super cool too! Foxen coral
I also love this as a wall accent color (maybe in the nook surrounded by the wallpaper)? The color according to the source is Eros Pink by Sherwin Williams.
I also ordered a pair of these kids S chairs from overstock when they were having their labor day sale last week. So fun!
And I plan to use them with this modern kids table from overstock.
One of these John Widdicomb beds will be Zoey’s new big girl bed. I bought them off Craigslist very early on this year and they’ve been collecting dust since. I plan to spray the frame white and reupholster in a pink, grey, or gold. I can’t make up my mind on this one!
And I love this art by Inaluxe for her room!
So, that’s the plan. Let’s hope it comes together like it is in my head
