The colour scheme for the Minx’s bedroom was pretty much decided after we got a good deal on the pink Nurseryworks ‘Storytime’ rocking chair.
I decided to incorporate green so that it wouldn’t all end up too Barbie, but still be fun for a little girl. And then we found a strange inflatable ‘Frog Prince’ at Ikea and decided to build him a ‘lily pond’ with little flower mats from Target and a cheap and cheerful flower bean bag, which sort of dictated a daisy theme. (Note that in the end we settled for an embroidered quilt from Pottery Barn, which is currently much too big for the Minx’s todder bed.)
So this is where we are today. You will notice that the existing purple walls don’t quite fit in. The main problem with them is that the room is north west facing and so is quite dark during the day so I want to lighten them up quite a lot.
These are the options I’m toying with at the moment.
A pale, not too girly pink
A pinky white
A light celery green
I’m worried that either pink or green would be too ‘matchy matchy’ and the white will be too boring.
What do you think?
I’m also thinking of getting enormous daisy decals from Apple Pie Designs to funk up the walls a bit, either in silver on a coloured wall, or coloured for a white wall. (Check out great posts on Apple Pie Designs on Decor8 and Designers’ Block).
As you can tell I’ve been playing a lot on the Benjamin Moore site today, and was amused to note that they actually have a paint colour called ‘Seattle Grey’.
Which, funnily enough, is exactly the same colour as the view out of our bedroom window this afternoon.
