the house // monday sneak peek

March 19, 2012

g's room is coming right along . . .



the color is martha stewart kalamata olive, and it is pure gloriousness.
it looks sort of blue in the bottom picture; the first is more accurate.

remember my inspiration? we're still in need of many things
- four poster bedframe
- bedding (that she hasn't been using since she was 6)
- side table
- second suitable lamp
- seating
- dresser
- art
- possibly ceiling paint

you know, not much. just a few things...

Looks so pretty! You can't go wrong with that poster. It seriously makes every room instantly cooler doesn't it??

the colour is AMAZING! You're off to a great start (colour is always the hardest part for me. The rest always seems to fall in place afterwards)

Nice! Like the color a lot. Ok- now here's the dummy question that makes me realize how new we are to eachother... who is G? I've tried going back in your posts to figure it out, but it's hard. tehe. Fill me in?

Ooohh this is going to be so gorgeous! Already is! btw, I think I've never asked you, who is G? I guess I started following you after her intro?

Tamra {ever swoon} said...

I love the color!! Great choice, I think I need to update the bathroom with that!

Nichole @ Parlour said...

Loooove that color! Love!!!

THANKS, all! Choosing a color is so tricky...so wonderful to hear resounding yesses.

For those that are unawares, G is my 11-year-old (step) daughter. The room is hers first and foremost, and will act as a guester when necessary. So it has to do two jobs. I'm lucky she is so easy-going AND has great style!

andrea said...

Lovely. I just posted about dark rooms yesterday. Glad to see not everyone is scared to go bold. I think it's gorgeous.

sarah @ design me daily said...
