an early peek...

This room is not completed, but I could not wait to show you guys a peek of what I did yesterday. I showed you the stencil that I was making, which is inspired by Quadrilles Wildflowers II fabric.

The room is being redone as a surprise for an anxious little girl's 6th birthday (due next week!). The walls have been painted the prettiest pale dusty lilac, and I came in to do the stencil. This room is being decorated by the talented Claire Watkins, and I ADORE the built-in's that were added. I was able to see a few of the selected decor choices, and you guys are going to love this room when it's all said and done!

Anyway, here is what I did yesterday:

(I was in the middle of touch-ups, so that's why one of the flowers was missing on the wall in this shot!)

I love that this pattern is clearly floral in nature, but it's not screaming frilly-over-the-top-rose-garden...it's a simple, modern flower, in almost a block print style.

You like?

Have a great weekend!

  2. Yes, I do like that pattern. Very retro looking. I think my dad's boyhood room has wallpaper evoking that pattern. He grew up in the late 40s/early 50s.

  9. Beautiful. I love that the stencil is a bit wonky and child like. Just right for a 6 year old's room!
