Pips bedroom

Postby girlinleeds » Sun Jun 03, 2018 1:50 pm

At the moment pips bedroom is pale green, bunting shabby chic style.
She's picked duck egg blue wallpaper (it's a bit stripped but mainly solid colour), all her furniture is white, but am a bit stuck about curtains am thinking cream/white for a nice bright look but not sure, also want a throw for her bed do I get white to match curtains or duck egg to contrast the white bed??

I would paper the room and keep the old curtains, and see what how it feels. On the roll on in the tin often looks v different on the wall

I think that is a good idea with the curtains. My worry with very pale ones would be light in the morning - or are there blinds as well?

I think blue would be lovely (especially if you made it for her :love: :crochet: !) with the white of the bed however as @ems101 said so hard to make decisions about the accessories until you hav ethe walls done so I'd probably say leave that decision as well - you know once the walls are done if you need bright or more of the blue.

can't wait for pics :widesmile:

It's really hard to get a pic that is the true colour of the wallpaper but I did two and a bit walls yesterday. I thought the paper just had a wave type pattern but it actually is part of a larger pattern and said many very rude words at it yesterday. It does look lovely and more grown up than before. Going curtain shopping after school today (second pic is more the actual colour but a lot more vibrant) Image

Annoying that it wasn't what you thought but it does look lovely!

@clothmama it has a bit of a shimmer to it, pips adores it, she's decided white/cream curtains and a blue throw. Better then her earlier suggestion of silver curtains, not grey, silver!!
