Show Us Your Life - Kids' Rooms


It's kids' rooms day on Kelly's Korner's Show Us Your Life Series - the room I paint for the most!   When we moved into our house about four months ago, I had the most fun planning the kids' rooms.  It was time for them to make some changes and update their rooms, but everything had been on hold until the house buying process was over.
My daughter had always had pink a a major theme in her nursery and then room.  She decided to go with a pale lime green paired with a pale aqua ceiling for something different a little more grown up.  I wasn't too sure about that colored ceiling, but I love it and it shows off the trim.  
There was a big, dark ceiling fan in this room originally.  The one thing she really asked for - other than a canopy bed - was a chandelier.  I bought this one online and it turned out to be the perfect size.  It is so pretty lit up at night.  I also did a chandelier vinyl wall decal above her antique wrought iron bed.


My son's walls were a nice cream that I was okay with leaving.  He really wanted a blue room and since I had gotten his sister her wish list item, I felt like I needed to do that for him.  Her specified not light blue.  I don't really like dark wall colors and was really stressing about the right shade of blue.   I went with this sort of stormy shade of blue that matches the chambray color in his quilt.  When it was done and I saw it with the wide cream trim and wall art, I just loved it.
He is a baseball player and just loves the game - not one particular team.  I found this Pottery Barn Kids quilt with all of the MLB logos on it.  Perfect!  I paired it with some cheerful polka dotted pillows and we were all set!

Here's a link to another post that better details where I bought everything.  Most of it is from etsy shops and I love supporting other artists!

As an added bonus (and because I love painting for kid's rooms!) I am doing a little giveaway today!  I am thrilled to be giving away a $30.00 canvas, either 11x14 or 8x24, depending on what you need for your kid's room!  Everyone who leaves a nice comment on this post today is entered.  Please only enter once and be sure to leave contact info.  I'll randomly choose a comment at about 10:00 tonight and announce the winner.  It's my little "thank you" for letting me know that you stopped by today!  Good luck!

LOVE Carter and Lauren's rooms! They match their personalities great! I'm getting ready to move Morgan to a big girl room and redo her room for the new baby so I may have to use some of your great ideas!

Great rooms. Love the colors in Lauren's room. I didn't think I would like that dark of a blue either but it looks great. Such great inspiration for my own rooms.
