Pink and Purple Girl’s Room Design Process

Bluffdale Residence | May 13, 2014

One of our long time clients has slowly been having us decorate each of her kids rooms. You may remember her boy’s room from this post and her girl’s room from this post.  We just finished up her oldest daughters room and I wanted to share the process with you today and the reveal tomorrow! 
Our client was a pretty opinionated little girl who wanted a room with pink, blue, purple and hints of Asian elements. This seemed to be a tall order for us. Using pink,  blue and purple in a space could be slightly chaotic if not done correctly. With any child’s space you risk it feeling too grown up or too childish. We wanted it to be a space she could venture into her teen years in.  We started out the room design with this fun bed from Land of Nod
I love their spindle beds. They are timeless and adorable.  We ordered it with the trundle option so she could have friends sleep over.  This raspberry color is pretty bold so we had to be careful what we paired it with.  
We contemplated pairing it with either of these duvet covers.
We decided on the Color Frame Duvet because it gave us a chance to bring in purple and the red pink matched perfectly with the bed.  
At our first consult with our client’s daughter she had picked this Bengal Bazaar in Magenta as her favorite fabric. (this girl already has such great taste!). 
So we added a pillow of that on the bed.  
We wanted some solid blue to add that to the bed so we bought these pillow covers on etsy. 
Aqua Blue with White Ribbon Pillows

We also bought this cute Asian doll to bring in that Asian theme that she wanted!

Is that not seriously adorable?! 
For the rug we found this one from Land of Nod that tied in the pink and purple that we had going on in the room:
We wanted some sort of nightstand to add something next to the bed. We contemplated these options:
   Ellie Side Table                      Vera Side Table                     Webster Nesting Tables
We chose the Ellie table because it had a hint of chinoiserie which we wanted. It was also WAY cheaper than the other options.  
Our client loved the mirrored cabinet that we had used in this project and wanted to use it as a dresser. 
It’s such a pretty piece and by adding baskets inside the shelves she could store clothes in it. We wanted to put a big piece of art above it because it was going on a long wall.  We liked these options:
Petal Canvas                               Darling Art                        Color Blocking
We decided on the Petal Canvas because we loved the color variation.  But on a quick trip to Alice Lane Home Collection we fell in love with this piece. 
The colors were exactly what we were looking for and the size was perfect.  Sometimes I swear I have a designer guardian angel that is blessing me with the most perfect pieces. 
Our cute little client had originally wanted a princess room and we managed to talk her out of ordering this bed:
To compromise we let her have a canopy above the bed.  We loved this one from PB Kids. 
I’ll be sharing the whole reveal with you tomorrow! It’s one of my favorite rooms. Stay tuned…
