Rosie's Room

Rosie is our 3rd daughter. When Emily moved out to go to University, Rosie got to have a room to herself! In a big family this is a treat. It's a lovely little attic room with low slanted ceilings, just big enough for 2 single beds. The low slanted ceilings are such a nice cozy feature and we decided to accentuate it with a stencil around the edge. It was our first try at stencilling and to me it felt like putting a border around a quilt.

Ta dah!

Because the room is so small, we kept the colours simple, just lilac and white. Early on in the project I created a pinterest board which we used as a design wall. We could pin pictures of rooms or colours or fabrics that were inspirational. The simple colour scheme was restful. The white made the room look larger. We used a light reflecting paint on the walls to help.We loved how the stencilling turned out! Now we were ready to start collecting fabric for the quilts.
