Yan's new bedroom is all ready for her!!!! Oh, we wish she were here already!!! We've done the room in hot pink and lime green. The walls are done in a pink to match the bed skirt and the ceiling is painted sky blue with fluffy white clouds accented with sparkling silver glitter (plus a moon on one side and a smiling sun on the other).
Above her bed is a mural made to look like a window with a pond outside. And, yes, we realize that if you are looking OUT a window to see a pond there is really no explanation as to why shutters are painted on what would be the inside of the home, but it's a cute mural that came with he house when we bought it. If Yan would prefer, we can paint it over in hot pink! This part of the wall is inset and has electrical outlets so she can store things inside and plug in a light (or a cell phone charger!). Right now, we have a gorgeous little red ladybug table-top light that a friend gave us and stuffed ducks with rain hats on that we thought looked like they went with a pond.
The window has five kinds of window treatments -- okay, we might have gone a little overboard! We were trying to go for the teen look and have a hot pink cotton shade over a white twist shade (as the room gets lots of sunlight and one shade didn't really darken it too well) with lime green sheers on the outside, long lime green beaded panel in the middle and a valance which is green with hot pink ribbon trim and dangling beads.
Yan also has a 6 drawer dresser with mirror, night stand by her bed, study/computer desk and ceiling fan. Now, if we can only get the rest of the house ready!
