I recently painted my daughter’s bedroom and wanted to share the before and after pictures with you all.
Decorating a little girl’s room is the best. Putting together my eldest daughter’s nursery in our last house was so much fun! I was in heaven as I was anticipating my first child. Hearing that I was to have a girl was the most exciting news of my life. And as I love decorating so much, putting together a nursery for a little girl was like a dream come true for me.
Now my girls are older and they want to decorate their own rooms. Some of their ideas are lovely. Others force me to use psychological tactics that will manipulate their choices persuading them to choose decor based on my own opinion. Just kidding! I bribe them. Kidding again! I swear I actually am able to let go of my sense of control and let my children explore their own creativity. I will say I do have my limits…I can’t do black walls or neon.
My youngest daughter wanted purple for her bedroom walls. I went to my local Sherwin Williams and picked up a few different shades. I was a little nervous choosing the right shade of purple. I didn’t want it to end up looking like a purple room from the 80s or 90s. I used Pinterest to help me make my purple selections and my daughter decided upon Sherwin Williams Silver Peony. There is a touch of gray in the paint which gives the walls a subdued, neutral lilac color.
Here are the “before” photos. I give you fair warning I took these right before I painted her room so her furniture is all over the place.
And now the “after” photos, painted with Silver Peony. I think I might switch rooms with my daughter so I can sleep in here.
This concludes my daughter’s room reveal. I hope you enjoyed the photos! Comment down below whether your children let you design their rooms, or if they want to be the designers.
