Give Your Room Some Life!


We moved this winter into a new house hundreds of miles away from our previous home. As we adjusted to a new town, family, friends, and church I knew I wanted to created a fun bedroom for my daughter to help her feel settled in our new life.

The room was a beige gray and needed color for a four year of girl! Together we decided that pink with a splash of purple would be fun!

I painted some samples on her wall and stared at them in different lighting for weeks and weeks. Finally, I was ready to paint! I painted three walls of the room a light pink and one accent wall a fun purple.

It was definitely brighter and fun, but it was not the pop and splash of life that I was hoping for. I decided I needed to stencil the purple wall, and I picked a fun one from Royal Design Studio Stencils to get the job done!

I used gold as my stencil accent color, and I love how it turned out!

It is the perfect splash of fun and pattern yet subtle enough that my eyes aren't exhausted staring at it!

Paint is such a cheap way to add color and life to a room! You can see more pictures of this room on my blog spoonfulofimagination.com

    I have a stupid question, can this style be done on a bumpy wall?

      I think the bumpy surface would cancel the non-bleeding paint results. But try it out on a small corner of the room with a very dry pounce brush, then gradually move up to more paint on the brush & find out if it’s possible. Are you referring to ‘ orange peel or stucco’ ?? If so, can it be sanded down to a smoother wall surface?
