violet bedroom: client design board

Good morning!
In my last post I shared my design for the pink bedroom of the T. house.
Today, it's big sister's turn (age 4) to see her violet bedroom!

The paint is already on the walls and it looks fantastic against the fabrics.  It's such an amazing opportunity to be asked to help a client with their whole home.  Then yesterday I saw the painted walls and it made the whole project feel real.

Here is her design board:

(I apologize for how blurry this looks.  I'm not sure what happened)

The large floral, which I can't get enough of, is for panels on her two windows.  The mirror is from Rebel.reclaimed.  I found the lamp at my favorite local resale shop for $5!  All it needs now is a new shade.  I think it's so important to mix high and low items...especially in a child's room.

I love this original watercolor from Etsy:
It's sophisticated for when she's older, but the colors make it possible for this bedroom.  Plus, I like the idea of imagining where this bird is traveling and all the possibilities of flight.  Is that too cheesy? 


I hope you're enjoying the progress we're making on this large project.  Soon I'll have after shots to share!

  1. It looks amazing. It's full of color, yet it feels very serene at the same time. I have been eyeing a chair at Marshalls like the one in your design board.I might have to get it and recover the cushion for Baby A's big girl room when the time comes.

  2. I just did a post last week that featured lavender with gray and chartreuse - which I plan to use in the master. Love how it can be sophisticated and pretty at the same time! Great choices, Abby!!!

  3. HUGE fan of lavender so I'm excited to see the results!! I LOVE the idea of the bird representing the possibilities of flight! Not cheesy at all!! Every room needs a piece of art or furniture with a tagged meaning!!

  4. I completely agree with the thoughts of birds and flight...cheesy would be crowns and the thoughts of being a princess or something...(c: And please tell me you are really using that lime green lamp...it is *AWESOME*!

  5. Looks incredible! It is definitely a room that she can grow up in - if I didn't know how old the "client" was I could have guessed it was a room for anyone between 2-18.

  11. Violet is a pleasing color. It's more likely to be the same as having a blue color.

  14. Violet is one of my favorite colors. It's a mixture of pink and blue. It's a perfect theme for a girl's bedroom because pink is the most common color.
