Here are some pictures and since I'm breaking out a few house pictures to demonstrate my carpet woes I thought I'd throw in a couple of the outside of the house just for kicks.
post. Obviously our turquoise color scheme is not going to work in this room. I have spent tons of time thinking about this room. Mostly about what color to paint it since painting Margot's room is one of the things we need to do before we move in. Besides the current paint is old, in poor condition and is lead based paint so this room must have a new coat or 3 before moving day. I have been going back and forth between a really light ballet pink with lots of gold accents or a light grey with ballet pink and white accents. As of right now I'm feeling pretty settled on the grey. We will keep all of the original wood work in tact but will be bringing in her white crib/toddler bed, her white book shelf and a dark walnut mid-century modern dresser. In addition to painting the walls grey I'm thinking about getting a this rug, or a cheaper knock off if I can find it, to cover most of the floor to tone down the carpet and tie the grey walls to the white furniture we have,
Then to really tie things together I'm going to
We are taking Margot's chandelier with us which will also tie the whole grey and white theme into the current rose and wood room. Her new mid-century dresser is the same shade of wood as the walnut baseboard molding and the wood rockers on this chair is the same honey toned wood as the closet and wall shelves. And I will make her new bedding in a white and grey modern print with lots of delicate pink accents. I'm even toying with the idea of painting the inside of that huge closet pink. Maybe since it's only 6:15am (this was a LONG post to write! whew) I'll even figure out how to make a decorating board for the room and come back with it. Or I could pack, or shower or make my family breakfast....we'll see.
