Like many little girls, since Leila was very young her favorite color was pink. When we went shopping, she would always pick out pink dresses and skirts. So when we first decorated her room, I wasn't surprised by her pink selections. Her bedding was pink. Her light fixtures were pink, and the pillows on her sofa were pink.
As Leila has grown, her style has changed. Pink is being replaced with other more "mature" colors.
Recently, Leila decided it was time for a change. Being a daughter of two visual people , the need to have her room reflect her personality is in Leila's genes. So for Leila's 10th Birthday we told her that she could redecorate her room.
We started with a trip to Anthopologie where Leila fell in love with this rug.
Inspired by one of the blues in her new rug, Leila chose Farrow and Ball "Blue Ground"...
which really transformed her room once the walls, the windows and the ceiling were painted.
She chose a goldenrod cotton velvet for the upholstery on her new sofa. The pillows and bedding were purchased from Anthropologie.
The wall color became a wonderful back ground for all of her artwork, displayed in white Pottery Barn frames.
