In our old house (the one that is the size of our current kitchen) our daughter's room was also painted a fun green color. That room was very dark, had only two windows and was pretty shaded. This room is the opposite. It has five windows, light on two sides, a view, and is super bright. So when we tried painting it the same color as before the results were hideous. Just awful. So after attempts at apple, lime, neon, kelly, olive and stem green, we finally found Benjamin Moore's Potpourri Green, just right.
I've been slowly working on the feature wall across from her bed. It has wall letters that spell her name (with toilet paper roll flowers perched in each letter), a multi-colored butterfly decal, four whimsical prints, bunny ballerina prints that she got at her baby naming, and a butterfly cut-paper art that I picked up on my last trip to Ikea.
I hope you notice the Tot Clock on the dresser. I'm telling you, it's the only thing that keeps her in bed until 6am! Click here to see my post on it from Monday. It will change your life.
All the bedding is from Target (or Tar-jay as my grandmother used to say), as is the lamp and the prints over her bed. Here in Northern California we are in earhtquake country, so I feel pretty good about having super ightweight art over her head as she sleeps, as opposed to something heavy!
