Girl’s Bedroom: A Navy and Pink Re-do
I just love this re-do I’m about to share with you. This is successful e-decorating* in action!
*What is e-decorating? Well, it’s long-distance decorating with a heavy use of photos, Pinterest boards and marathon emails.
My California clients Will and Jen wanted to freshen up their daughter’s room but they didn’t want to break the bank.
Here’s the room before. It’s cute! But their daughter wanted a more pulled together “big girl” look.
I suggested this fabulous Navy Fleur Chinoise pattern scheme from Caitlin Wilson Textiles:
How great is that navy and pink for a little girl’s room?!
Once Jen and her daughter approved, we were off and running. With my direction (Jen, paint the wall this color! Buy two of these pillows, one of these pillows! Get this rug in a 8×10!), and Jen’s amazing task-master abilities, the room now looks like this:
Here’s the window seat. Those window treatments are from Etsy.
Here’s a glimpse of the window seat before…

Here’s another shot (apologies for my lame iPhone filters!). Jen in her brilliance kept the “C” on the wall and painted it pink. Her daughters each painted a DIY picture to hang on the wall. She also repainted the furniture white with silver trim – wow, new paint can really make a difference.
Also! Jen kept the existing chandelier but updated it with new navy-trimmed shades from Pottery Barn. No decorating detail escapes this woman, I tell you!
Jen and Will ended up spending less than $2,000 on this entire room re-do which you may know for an entire room is a pretty good price tag! We shopped sales, we tried to use discounts, and did as much DIY as possible.
Well done, Jen! I hope your daughter loves her new room as much as I do.
