I'm probably not going with the shade style....though the aqua polka dot is cute!
So.....let's take this turn.... French Provincial meets Shabby Chick....
same bedding, and with these colors:
The site only lets you color a few pillows on the bed, and those represent the bedding in the previous post. The decision has been made to do one color. I just could not get happy with two. I think I'll leave the border anyway if it works...we'll see.
I like that the little yellow flowers are in this picture because the third element will be the splashes of yellow, possibly some orange, and magenta pink. Thus returning to the tones in the Pier one pillow fabric in a few posts ago.
What I found was, that if you make the walls your focal point, you have to cater to it with your accessories. If you make them more subtle, you can have pops of color added and it won't over whelm. I think the furniture will look real good against the blue walls.
I like this scheme because it also leaves room for the color pops of everyday girlie things. Thier stuffed animals, books, baskets, stereo...all have their own splash of color and against a screaming wall, it just does not work. It would work on an adult room if the adult was not a clutter bug at all and only had those things out that cordinated with the scheme. That is just not possible with a 7 and 10 year old set of chicks. :)
For the windows, I plan (and Karen, you may get even more homesick now...sorry) to pull out the white sheer curtians that were in the room when we moved in, and add some cheap shaby chick valance with it's own little statement over that.
So it's almost time to paint shop!
