Meet my niece, The Divine Miss L.:
Miss L. is funny.
The Redhead loves Miss L.
Miss L has a fun, girly bedroom because Miss L is girly and fun.
But, Miss L needs some wall décor. Her mother (Cool Sister) said "I’m handing this off to you. Go do... what you do, m’kay?”
SO, we started with the area over her bed. She has these cool green walls that pop color without making your head explode. And her bedding coordinates perfectly.
(I took these pictures on a rainy day with little natural light, because I am awesome. So.... sorry about the low lighting. But the room is still way cute - trust me)
She has this great quilt from PB kids that suits Miss L to a T. It's pretty busy, though (like Miss L), so that means that anything we do on the walls needs to complement that pattern, not fight with it or distract from it.
I found an open-backed frame that mimicked the lines of her great headboard.
It was a distressed white, though, and had a more shabby chic vibe going on, which isn't what I was going for. So, I gave it a couple coats of a nice gloss white to even it out and match her existing furniture.
I went for this basic "L" at Hobby Lobby (I prefer this classic font over more kitschy, girly or bubbly fonts, but that's just me. A 50% off sale doesn't hurt, either. ;) )
A couple strokes of a fun bubblegum pink courtesy of our friends at Rustoleum to cover the letter, and
within a weekend, Miss L. had a simple but chic feature wall with her name written all over it! Or at least, her initial.
That's just one wall, people - we've got 1 1/2 more to go! Stay tuned for more from her room, and another cameo or two from Miss L, if you're lucky :)
