Out On A Limb!

Filed under: Cool Decor, Kid's Spaces

I LOVE my job.    One of the perks is meeting cool people.  I recently met a spunky 12-year-old girl that really inspired me.  She loves so many things about life — football, geckos, nature, red, gold and circles are just a few things we discussed in our initial meeting.  I left that meeting knowing that I needed to WOW this girl and give her a space that is as special and unique as she is.

First things first — Lily needed to pull down the fatheads so that we could get started!!  We began the makeover by painting her walls French Roast and her ceiling metallic gold.  Then, we painted a gold tree branch across the walls and added red paper leaves for effect.

AFTER

We built a custom headboard using alternating wood slats and also added custom red patent leather cornice boards.  We added in a “Wall of Fame” for her football jerseys (yes, she plays!) and a shelving for her trophies.

I love how the room turned out — a unique color scheme and design for a very inspired girl who inspired this girl to go out on a limb!
