Someday my prince will come
Someday we’ll meet again
And away to his castle we’ll go
To be happy forever I know
Someday when spring is here
We’ll find our love anew
And the birds will sing and weddingbells will ring
Someday when my dreams come true
My little girl is a full on princess. To the point where when asked what her name was, she’d say princess… granted she was just learning her name but you get my point. IN fact the other day, she told me she was going to live in a castle. I asked her who she was going to live with and she pointed to her friend Bobby and said… with BOBBY, he’s my prince. Poor Bobby, didn’t even see it coming.
Since it became a reality that my kids would actually get their own rooms and therefore I would have to decorate a GIRLS room I started Pinning like CRAZY.
At first, I was thinking super girlie:
Then I got my PotteryBarn Kids catalog:
Then she started taking ballet, and I remembered my own love of impressionists and Degas:
And my inspiration started…. What goes with black and white charcoal????? Why Tiffany Blue of course?!
Do you know HOW many different Tiffany Blues there are out there? A LOT! And of course none of them are CALLED Tiffany Blue, they are all more Robins Egg. Then do you want to go more teal, more bright, more blue, subtle, green-ish, etc etc etc.
G was ready to kill me because I was so scared to pull the trigger. After two trips to two paint stores, plus ENDLESS hours on the internet. I settled on Benjamin Moore, Spectra Blue.

She is keeping all the furniture from her and her brother’s room. So the crib and dresser that match, both are a deep mahogany almost espresso color. She’ll also have the Cameron Bookshelves from PBK… We have two of the cubbies, I haven’t decided if I’m going to stack them or get the drawer base for extra storage. Or if D will get them after all; that will be a decision for after we move in anyway.
I also went ahead and ordered some prints for the walls… I.AM.SO.EXCITED about them I think they are just LOVELY. And I know she is going to love them too.

None of the prints are huge, so I will have to decide how to group them, as well as what color frames, etc. LOVE IT
What i REALLY love is the light we got for her room. It is SO PRINCESS!!!! But a cool princess, not a fru-fru princess.
Can you believe that is from Home Depot?! It’s not super big, it’s more on the precious side. Just lovely.
I have also been toying with the idea of a stencil on one of the walls to break up the blue. What do you think? Maybe something like…..
Trellis – either in white or a darker shade of blue
More graphic… again tone on tone or white.
or maybe something more magical….
Such as Castles or Fairies
So what do you think of Little Miss Princess Boobah’s room? I can’t wait to show everyone the AFTER, not just the mood boards for all these rooms. We’re getting to the finish line. Hopefully only another month of the “summer” rental.
