I may be biased because I have a little girl of my own, but I love designing rooms for girls. The last room I designed was mostly pink so I wanted to do something fun and add more color this time. I wanted to keep the space girly and stick to the light and airy feel of my previous design. This design is versatile, it is perfect for a toddler up until those teenage years and beyond.
The first time I saw this stool from Anthropologie I was instantly hooked. There’s a reason why this item is on backorder. It is like nothing I have ever seen before, then again, almost everything at Anthropologie is unique. It is meant for outdoor use but what’s the harm in breaking a little rule? This piece brings a lot of color to the space
The Color Palette
A simple yet beautiful color palette for this design! I loved using multiple shades of pink for this design. They all work well together and compliment the other colors in the design perfectly. I pulled the green from the stool and used it for the rug and other home accents. Neutrals were also used, of course. Because I decided to do different shades of pink, I tried to use a similar color green to the one on the stools. I did this because I wanted the space to have a little bit of color but wanted to stay away from it being too loud. I prioritized an airy feel to this space.
The Furniture and Décor
Other than the stool, my favorite piece in this design is this vase. I love its unique shape and smooth glass texture. It is the perfect vase if you have a small accent table that you wish to decorate because this piece is more than enough décor for a small surface.
I chose to go with neutral furniture (other than the accent chair) because I wanted the room to look elegant and old enough for a teenage girl. I fell in love at first sight of the scalloped nightstands from West Elm. I love scalloped décor and was pleased to see scalloped nightstands. The color along with the shape of these fit in perfectly with the rest of the furniture.
I chose to go with a pink accent chair instead of sticking with the neutral color theme for furniture. This is because I wanted to avoid the room looking too matchy-matchy and also wanted to create a bit of dimension.
My all-time favorite pieces are these botanical wall art. They are beautifully created, dried botanicals placed in an acrylic box. So simple yet so beautiful and they add so much beauty to the space.
