It’s hard to believe that we have reached the point of actually planning for our first home. It is exciting yet also daunting when I think about all that needs to be done. Most definitely cleaning from ceiling to floor and then ceiling to floor again; get all the dirty dust out!! Hey, but what fun is that to talk about. Let’s instead turn our attention to our very first project for our home.
We don’t have a lot of furniture and aren’t planning on buying much right away. We want to move in and slowly make this house our home. Yet, there is one very special room that at the moment rises above all the rest. Juan and I have the desire to create a whole new room for our little girl who is growing up so very fast.
So the planning has begun. And this is where you come in. I need help. I need ideas like what color to paint the walls, ideas for decorations, placement of furniture and whatever else is so very important when decorating a little girls room! And as a thank you for all your help and contribution, you will all be invited over to Velda’s new room [once completed] for a little tea party!! How’s that for incentive!
So let’s get started.
Awhile back [summertime] while browsing through Target, we came upon a quilt that was just the one for V’s room. No I did not instantly snatch it up and run to the check out line; that’s just not me. I have to think
Then look at it online so that I can think some more! You say time wasted, I say time to let it go to 50% off! WORD! So here it is:
I promise you it is not ugly! I was shooting under fluorescent lights which tend to weird out the colors [yes, complete technical term]. Perhaps a close up?
I personally think it is full of little whimsical girly aspirations. Really, I just think it is full of color. It is fun with flowers and polk a dots yet show’s it’s made for a little girl who is growing up. Am I looking to much into this quilt? It just excites me and is a reminder that my baby is not longer a baby. If I even call her a baby she corrects me and tells me she is a girl, along with mommy and daddy. [Yes, daddy is a girl for the moment. Though we tell her he is a boy, she corrects us and says he is a girl. Side note, she however knows the difference between the girls and boy’s bathroom and refuses to go into a boy’s bathroom in public. She says “it no for me“.]
Let me just show you why this quilt is just so lovely [and at the same time practice my photo taking skillz].
I think I’ve shown you more than enough pictures to get an idea of the quilt. (I can’t help myself.) So my question to you is:
What color should I paint the walls of V’s room?
There are plenty of colors to choose from. To help you in choosing, keep in mind that I am looking for and hoping to find a purple rug. I have yet to choose drapes for her room; I was thinking purple as well but feel free to chime in there too! I think purple is a great color however I don’t want to overdue it. So…..what do you think?
