It probably doesn’t make a ton of sense to start with a kid’s bedroom when you have an entire house to renovate, but we figured out pretty quick that our daughter’s bedroom was priority #1. Why? Because she REFUSED to sleep in it (which meant she was sleeping in our bed….every…single…night). Not only is she too old for that, but having a 4-year-old in your bed is like sleeping with a zoo animal.
I can’t really blame her though, for a very girly girl her bedroom in the new house was dark and a little bit scary (her words). As you can see from the before pics the walls were a yellow beige color with a dark green accent wall (it was darker in person), and a heinous blue and green floral wallpaper border. There were also dark wood doors and trim; lots and lots of trim. Top it off with some mis-matched furniture and it wasn’t a very welcoming space for a little girl.
