My Daughters Room Transformation…
Okay – so when we moved into our home back in 2006 – the photo’s shown here are the photo’s of how we decorated my then 6 year old daughters room. She claims she never wanted this “orange room” however it was her that chose the bedding and I will confess the fun transformed from there. I absolutely loved the combination of the creamsicle orange color paired with the whites and greens in her room!
Then when she was 10 – she decided that we needed to upgrade her bed to a full because she was just so “big” now! Therefore we did as we were told and went with a Roxy bedding with a more updated teenage look!
Now that she is turning 13 this upcoming December (can I cry now?) She was persistent that the color orange just didn’t didn’t fit her taste in décor. As parents we do want to feed their soul, right? After all – this space they call their room is supposed to be their sanctuary! So the new choice in bedding color was found – along with just a few accessories. These goodies were placed in the closet until we were confident that this is the right direction she truly wanted to go with. So a few weeks ago – we cleared it all out & began the task of painting!
She wanted a “beachy look” and seashell accessories – so to be honest I was excited about the theme & color she chose and started thinking of all the darling finds I could now search for to go in her room! When I began bring some fun items home – I was quickly put in my place about the lack of interest in what was in my mind vs. hers! I was told my finds were “old” and “ugly”. Even the word “dirty” was used. The vision in her mind were paired with words like “cool, clean, new”! I must look at this as a “fun challenge”, right?" I will share with you next week – some of the “fun” we have found!
