I have her whole big-girl room makeover later in the week, but I do love this sweet little update we did in her playroom.
The playroom is by far the most controversial room in the house, lots of you did NOT favor the color combo. It is still not Pete’s favorite, but he has grown to accept it- and I think enjoy it more as I do little things here and there to fluff it up. We might change it up eventually, tone it down, but I still love it and it’s not high on our priority list right now.
So you might remember from the original before & after that the playroom has these two dormer nooks. One of them is full height, and I am leaving it empty for now so Grace can use it for whatever her sweet imagination likes. The other seemed like the perfect little special reading spot.
But not in its “before” state:
I am embarrassed to admit this is what the space looked like up until maybe a month ago?
SO much better now. I still want to add some blue trim to the lampshades, stripes to the nook ceiling, and paint out the trim blue as per one of the original comment suggestions- but I am really happy with this little update.
We got these little shelves from Land of Nod for her books…
And I had this cushion made, I love how it ties together the blue and chartreuse and brings in squillions of other colors we can use throughout the room.
The most important part, of course, is how much Grace loves the space. It is the first stop she gravitates towards when we are up there playing- the view looks out over our backyard and into a big beautiful tree.
It’s really happy. Don’t you think?
