As of right now, the girls have paint on the walls! I am still trying to figure out if I should design them to be identical or not, within the color palette of each room. Some alike elements I know for sure are:
- Upholstered headboards
- Full size beds
- Storage options
- Extra Seating

I find myself constantly working and reworking the space planning for there rooms until I get that feeling that I have just the perfect layout for each of their spaces. And again I keep toying with the idea of doing identical rooms. Here is my latest space plan:
Here is my latest quick sketch:
Check out how this chic plum bedroom inspiration is coming together for the purple room! The headboard is another Horchow headboard option I fell in love with in plum! I love the quatrefoil cu-out detail. It sill has the same look and feel that I am going for with the scalloping and the nail-heads. I have a good feeling good about this!
I am loving the idea of two-tone painted furniture. I am so into refurbishing a piece of furniture to make it your own which I have seen a lot of in the blogging world. The purple wardrobe is from the UK that comes in a variety of different colors. I am just glad I found one in purple. Here is two-tone in pink. Pretty huh! I came across this in the April 2010 issue of Traditional Home magazine. It was a Market Place profile article on kids furniture. This is the Savannah Dresser changer.
When it comes to the desk/vanity, I am thinking about splurging! I think the girls (10 &12) are old enough to handle the West Elm Parsons Mirror Console. There is no DIY in this.
I love this option because its just going to reflect all the beautiful finishes and materials that I am planning for these rooms. I wonder if they will do a BOGO on these for me?
Things I still have yet to consider are:
- Flooring - I plan to do a pink and purple shag in the corresponding rooms
- Lighting - General, task, and ambient
- Ceiling fan - Lowe's has a clear blade fan, but its pretty expensive. I wonder if I can purchase clear blades separately and do a refurb on a couple of fans from craigslist. (ANY IDEAS?)
- Window and pillow fabrics - (I actually found a couple but I am not feeling them anymore)
- Closet Organizers
