I meant to post this last week but this little puppy kept me very busy last week! Meet Marilyn Monroe, our new tiny Yorkie!
Isn’t she absolutely adorable?
Anyway, last week my painter/wallpaper installer came in to work on the girls’ homework room. It is looking absolutely fabulous and I couldn’t be happier.
Here’s a sneak peek of the wallpaper and the wall colour: Raspberry Blush by Benjamin Moore.
Then I was able to “force” my husband to put together the Ikea desks and chairs I bought for each girl.
Doesn’t it look fantastic so far……the girls are ecstatic and my vision for their homework room is coming to fruition!!
Can you believe I bought these adorable little storage bins from the dollar store…..you would think they were made for the wallpaper, they accent the paper and colours perfectly.
And the FILLSTA table lamp is perfect. Although I must admit it took me a while to figure out how to put this lamp together.
So far so good!! What’s left to do is put up shelving above the desk, create an art wall for their pictures & paintings and get going on my DIY chalkboard. So stay tuned for another update soon!!
It’s finally happening!! The Homework Room is finally getting completed! I literally put it on hold last winter/spring as I was busy with client projects (which is always a good thing). Then once the summer hit, we were too busy working on Project Dollhouse AKA the Bunkie.
You can catch up on my plans for the homework room here. The star of the room is going to be this wallpaper my daughters and I chose from Printers Guild Productions.
The wallpaper will only be on one wall, so I had to decide what colour to paint the remaining 2.5 walls. And of course this gorgeous wallpaper gave me 3 vibrant colour choices: Orange, Lilac or Raspberry.
The girls and I nixed the lilac…so now it was down to the orange or the raspberry / pink grapefruit flower as our colour inspiration.
I headed to my local Benjamin Moore Paint store and picked up 2 tester samples of Calypso Orange BM2015-30 and BM2008-30 Raspberry Blush to try on the walls next to the paper.
The minute I brushed the Calypso Orange onto the wall I knew it was the wrong choice…even with a 2nd coat (which I didn’t bother to do) I knew it would be too much for the room.
So I decided to go with Raspberry Blush. I was so excited about it that I tweeted out my colour choice to Benjamin Moore….and below is their response.
And here is the vision board I created for the Homework Room via Olioboard to give you a brief look at the look of the room that I want to achieve.
