My girl’s room has been Lenox Tan for over a year now. I love non-traditional colors for kids rooms. I wanted something that could work for all 3 of my girls. Since it is a tiny room, I wanted it to be non-claustrophobic and and very calming. I was very excited to see that tans are coming back in style. I love how Melaine did her daughter’s room. I had to be a copy cat. 🙂 I painted all of the garage sale frames I had accumulated over the years to one color, and then collaged them on the walls and created a butterfly-inspired girl’s bedroom.
And cut out paper butterflies to “mount” in each one.
I am trying to decide what to do about the valances, if I keep them or not. I really have to get that Etsy store of mine open so it’s an easier decision. 🙂 The collaged paper butterflies add such ac cute and whimsical touch. You can see how to make them in this post. There is also a template provided.
I found this bamboo birdcage for $8 and painted it white, hung it on a ribbon from the ceiling and added some little butterflies. It’s kind of neat because when the windows are open it drifts just a bit and the little wings kind of flap in the breeze. The best part is; I took the book pages from a copy of “Little Women.” I layered some of the cute out paper wings in various sizes to make them fancier.
And the reason the beds are slightly off center is the little peanut sleeps over in the corner.
Someday when she get s big girl bed we are going to have to reconfigure the room a bit, but we’ll make it work. I know they love their butterfly- inspired bedroom. I hope we can keep it that way for awhile. I also love the chicken wire memo board over my Little’s bed. I love clipping cute sayings on there and photos.
