Girls room redo

llmhoganSeptember 24, 2012

We are in the middle of redoing my oldest daughters room and have the bedding (pottery barn Chloe Floral in Blue) but we are struggling to agree on a paint color for the walls. I want a color that she can grow with. Can anyone help with some ideas to make it a big girl room that will last many years?

Out of all those colors have her choose her 2favs and use them, one for a feature wall, the other for the rest.

With all that color going on, one'e eyes might enjoy an expanse of wall for the eye to rest... id choose the lightest color in the print (take a photo and BM has an app to tell you the closest color)

When you do decide, I'd take a pillow sham or the spread to have it color matched (sometimes photos are misleading). But I think one of the lighter colors for a wall and accent as suggested.

What age group is your daughter now?

She is the in the tween age group. Everyday she wants a different color. :)

I think I'd go with the light green color, (the one on the left under a black flower) if it's something that you want to keep for a long time. But I tend to prefer muted colors, so my opinion may not be helpful.

I redid my 12 year old daughter's room using PBTeen's Peace Patchwork Quilt. I brought the sham into a BM store and the consultant suggested Hazy Blue. It looks as if your quilt has a similar blue. My friend, not knowing this, also chose "Hazy Blue" as an accent wall for her tween daughter's room with a different quilt. I would suggest taking the sham or quilt to a BM store , if possible, and see what the consultant suggests. Good luck and have fun!
