When I say that this is my favorite space that I have ever created, there is no exaggeration. I thought that I was ready to dust my hands off and walk away after my living room reveal, but I mean, how Mandilicious is that? Not Mandilicious at. all. folks. As I have mentioned before, creating a kids room that you both will enjoy can be super hard. If you let them be involved, you are guaranteed to end up with a few roadblocks…such as kangaroos (I mean, kangaroos? When she said that I giggled like an idiot for about 30 minutes.) Here is the interview with Dylan, just so you guys who are new can see just how sparkly this little child is. (Just a warning, she is so sparkly that you will need sunscreen.)
When Sherwin Williams gave me the color Pink for National Painting Week the whole Dylan’s Dream Room process began. And just because I cant get enough of showing you guys the HORRIBLE condition of the house when we bought it (this is the MLS listing) here is the BEFORE before. Hope you have a tetanus shot.
Then the room went to this. This was one of the first rooms that I redid when I started Vintage Revivals almost 3 years ago.
And THEN (sheesh this is like the song that never ends!) I painted everything white. And it was great. But there was none of Dylan’s flair for life in this room at.all.
So now that you are up to speed I am THRILLED to show you how the room turned out. I worked for 3 weeks straight on this space (because I pretty much did it twice, but that is another post for next week.) When you are creating a space for someone you love so much, its so easy to put your heart completely into it. I showed you the color palette Dylan picked out, and this is how we incorporated so many colors into one space.
Each color was used on the far right hexagon and then diluted with white paint to ombre it out (pretend that is a legit term ok folks?)
If you watched Dylan’s video you know that pink and puppies were the things that she talked about the very most. So how could I not make a pink puppy feature wall? We are hoping that with a guardian bulldog she will actually want to sleep in her room now…please pray.
The perfect bubble gum pink is called Pink Moment and I absolutely love it. The bulldog is carved out of thin cork board so that Miss Dyl has a memo board for all of her beautiful art projects.
The little vintage industrial desk was a $15 yard sale score and could not be more perfect. Its nice and tiny, has a Formica wipe able surface, and lots of storage. It hits me about 4 inches above my knee, and I was a little concerned about finding a mini chair. So of course I went into my garage to see what I have hoarded (I have a disease, read more about it here) and found this little stool that came out of an old bank. The top cushion looked like it had been the shield for Michelangelo in his latest battle against his nemesis. It was shredded. Get it!? Shredder!!? Sometimes I think I am funny.
The coat hooks were made from copper tubing and mounted to the wall. Copper is such a great color and goes so well with this shade of pink. They aren’t fighting each other, even thought the colors are similar, its like they are long lost BFFs!
This is the part where I stop chit chatting and just show you the eye candy. Please Enjoy.
So what do you think, do you think this room matches sparkly Dylan? Make sure you check back next week for a source post with all of the info you could ever need about this room and dont worry, the tutorials will begin next week too for all of the fun amazing projects!!
Huge thanks are in order to Sherwin Williams for giving me the kick in the butt that I needed to make this room a reality for Dyl. National Painting Week is sort of like a holiday for a DIYer like me. It is FULL of amazing inspiration. Make sure to pop over to the fabulous Emily Henderson’s blog for her Pink project. Tomorrow The Decorista and The City Sage are taking on Purple and I cannot wait to see what they have up their sleeves!
This is a sponsored project with Sherwin Williams National Painting Week, all opinions and projects are my own folks.
