Pretty in Pink

One of my goals this year was to focus on one room at a time and actually finish what I start. I was tired of feeling like nothing got finished and I thought this would be a good approach. Let me tell you, for the rest of you out there with Design Induced ADD, I highly recommed this method. It's actually inspired me to get working. I no longer feel so overwhelmed with to do lists and ideas because I really focus on the project at hand. Which isn't to say that I don't let my mind wander to other projects occasionally, I just don't let myself do anything about them.

I've finished painting all of the furniture in Emma's room. Love the way it turned out. I found the flower shaped glass knobs at The Cottage. Sure wish I could visit their shop in person. The mirror is an antique one that belonged to my grandmother that also got a coat of paint.

Love the way the Pottery Barn sheets work in the room to break up all of that pink-sweetness.


I still have a few art projects to make for the walls and a shelf to paint and install above the closet door. I hope to finish those next week. Then the real challenge begins, deciding which room to focus on next.

  1. Love it! I cracked up at "decorating ADD." What a good way to put it. It's not me, it's my disease. :)

  2. Hi J,
    The space certainly did turn out lovely! How does she love it?

    You hit the nail right on the head about concentrating on one space at a time. So many women come into the shop and purchase 3 or 4 different things,for different rooms, spend a few hundred dollars, and get really nowhere. This is the advise I am constantly preaching.

    Girls..STAY FOCUSED!! ITs a good thing!
    Have a great Easter with the girls and Hubby!

  9. it looks so cute..i love painted furniture..it is so great for kids (and anywhere really) i love the touch of red with pink...in fact...pink blue and red are one of my fave color schemes for little girls! i think just pink and pastels is just too sweet and not practical.

    bravo!

  13. It's beautiful, Jen. The one room at a time approach has worked well with our redo's over the winter. Less overwhelming! You did a wonderful job!

  18. I love the way the room turned out. I am currently planning my 4 year-old daughter's room and much of what you have done in your room is very similar to my plans. I love the pink on the walls that you choose...not so "pepto bismally pink" that is common in girls rooms. I am thinking of doing a colour called "Apple Blossom" by Benjamin Moore. It looks very similar to your pink...is it apple blossom? Also, are those Cherry Blossom sheets from PB? I am thinking of buying the duvet from that line. Sorry for the long comment but I would so love to connect with you about this!!! LOL!!

  19. Perfect! Enjoy being able to decorate their rooms now. They grow up so fast and eventually want to cover the walls with posters!

  22. Emma's room really turned out nice. What is the color of pink you used on her walls..it's so soft and subtle...I'd like to paint my youngest walls a soft shade, she keeps begging me to do that.
