Maddie’s Room – The Reveal

 

Black White and Pink Girls Room DIY

 

A while back a dear friend of mine let me come up with some design ideas for her daughter, Madelyn’s room. Take a look at the original digital design post for the before pictures. She didn’t go for the striped wall I planned, but we got to try out just about everything else! Here’s the reveal :) She loves her big girl room, and at 8, I’m sure she’ll love it for years to come as she grows too!

Digital Design – Maddie’s Room

Getting a Design Plan Together

Black White Pink Grey Bedroom Plan

Black White Pink and Gray

So I love to have a plan before I start decorating any room. Many designers out there create a style board, which is an awesome way to let people see all the elements of the room in one glance. I wish I knew how to do those, finding something online, cutting it out of its background, and placing it on a white background with all kinds of other designs…but alas, just not a skill I’ve mastered yet.

Waverly Cross Section

Waverly Lattice Peach Kitchen

Waverly Cross Section Peach

I love this fabric. It’s modern but kind of crisp at the same time. Great for anything around the home. I’ve seen people use it for curtains, pillows, on furniture.
