I totally called it! When my 2nd grader begged for a zebra glam room last year, I knew it wouldn’t last. Which is why I designed her pink room with the zebra component as a variable design element.
She still loves pink (a non-negotiable element at this point), but wanted her room to better reflect her new 3rd grade status. So for a mere $40, here’s what we did:
- Rearranged the room (just a little).
- Exchanged her dresser with her sisters.
- Picked up a super soft pink blanket from Target ($25).
- Made a new body pillow cover of sparkly pink fabric ($15).
- Switched back to the Audrey Hepburn print.
- Switched her zebra chair with a pink one we had in the basement.
I like both versions of her room, but I love that she is excited about her new room and is (so far) keeping it picked up.
The dog, by the way, didn’t notice the change. She just likes a good nap. Which version do you like best?
Wow – All it takes is a new arrangement and some Feng Shui to deliver an appeal to open up the windows and then you have it! A perfect sect of people coming in and out just to see – why? Only to know why they are all in ways with this little girl and her new room. Why? Just to see. Where is the seeing with anything that goes uninterrupted in a flow of nice and glow. The glow aspect of the pink is very diplomatic – girly and in style. Yeah. This is a winner for the next winnings of the Olympic gold medalist. Namaste
Thanks Kenya – or, in her words “awesome”! I do believe every room should be freshened occasionally to help it be seen again.
