New Year New Room refresh challenge

As you recall, I am updating my 11 year old daughter’s bedroom. We made a deal at her tenth birthday a bedroom update was in store… then covid and life and… we are finally getting around to it, yah!

So far, I have shared :

Week 2 Today

Tween Modern Accent Wall:

Last week, I shared a wallpaper that we were really excited to use in my daughter’s bedroom, but for various reasons we needed to pivot and come up with a new plan. If you follow me over on Instagram, you may have seen me talking about that a bit more in-depth on IG stories.

I spent some time re-visiting our inspiration photos and trying to decide the next plan of action. I decided an accent mural wall would be the perfect solution. After doing quite a bit of sketching and chatting with my daughter, we finally settled on the pattern.

There is going to be a lot going on in her room when the space is complete, so a “less is more” plan for the mural is what we decided to go for.

Modern Striped Painted Wall plan –

I came up with this simple striped pattern, but wanted to do one something simple to make it unique and pop. I came up with the idea of sneaking my daughter’s first initial into the design. I think if you use a fairly blocky letter font, you could probably line up almost any letter into these stripes.

We often call my daughter, Miss A… so this is fun little nod to one of her nicknames.

Final Paint Colors –

We are big Behr paint fans in our household. We’ve used the Bit of Sugar white throughout our home. So for the main portion of the room, a crispy clean white will be painted.

For our accent statement wall, it took me a VERY long time to pull together the perfect color palette in photoshop. (See below left). Once, we had the colors just how we wanted them on the computer screen, it was time to head over to Home Depot.

I think we got pretty darn close to our vision colors. The teal we went with is a bit more intense and BLUE/teal colored, but we both agreed the colors worked very nicely together!

The colors we decided on go from top to bottom; Teton Blue, Ocean Abyss, Honey Tea, Blush, Heavy Cream and Rainy Afternoon.
