R’s renovated bedroom is coming along nicely. She has new bamboo floors (“Thanks, Hurricane Irene!” she says) and her walls are repainted in Benjamin Moore’s Purple Cream, a very pale, rosy lilac. Our neighborhood dry cleaner did a beautiful job turning these Company Kids Big Dot percale sheets into a twin-size duvet cover (Company Kids was sold out of its own duvet in that color combo). And I surprised R. overnight with these Big Dot wall decals, including some that are photo frames. Over her bed, I framed the self-portrait she made last Spring in 2nd grade art class in a new white 22 x 28″ frame. She loves the look of her new ‘tween room so far. What do you think?
