The design of my Son's Room came quickly and easily to me, so I was nervous when I had absolutely NO IDEA what to do for my daughter's transition from Nursery to Big Girl Room. So I took to the internets and scoured room pictures for inspiration....not little girl rooms, but gorgeous rooms in general. I saved close to 100 in an online file before I finally realized exactly what I wanted to do.
I knew I didn't want a typical 'little girl color,' and these gorgeous aqua walls really bring the perfect blend of calm and neutral, but with plenty of fun.
Ooooooh, and check out this pop of yellow with the aqua! My wheels started spinning a little faster.

And while I'm no stranger to color, I figured I'd stop with aqua and yellow. Until I spotted these images and my heart flew up into my throat (yes, pictures of pretty rooms affect me this way!)

Radish Pink combined with the aqua?! Yes, please! (Um yeah, the color combo is slightly familiar, seeing as how I hosed my blog down in it!!) And once I re-discovered this classic Domino room, I knew I'd found the design of Babygirl's New Room!!
Jill Sorenson of Marmalade Interiors (and author of one of my favorite blogs Live Like You), blended the three colors beautifully. Her design convinced me the scheme of Aqua, Radish and Bright Yellow was the perfect combination of fun and vibrancy for my spunky Babygirl! I was instantly smitten....and inspired!
I could seriously lick these rooms they make me so happy!
I first brought home a sample of Sherwin Williams Composed (SW6472). It's more green than yellow, but I wanted to be sure the color had no trace of Baby Blue.
I tried it in the closet and loved the color, but realized it was too dark.
Her room is already natural-light-challenged due to the single, narrow window. So I slid up the color swatch and decided on Sherwin Williams Waterscape (SW6470).
I absolutely love it!!! Here's a peek of the walls with the Bright Yellow Highboy and Radish Pink Bed.
What do you think? Do you like the direction it's going? I'm excited to have this ball rolling again, and promise to get you caught up with the room soon!
