One Room Challenge- Week 6: Equestrian Princess Room Reveal

It's week 6 in the ORC which means I'm done! I'm cutting it super close this time with it being almost midnight but I can finally breathe now!

For a little reminder, here are a few of the before shots of my friend/client's daughter's room I took on for the challenge. She requested horses, princesses, and pink.




Here is the original design plan I came up for the room.

Ava's Equestrian Princess Room


However during one of our rug hunt outings, we came across this Pottery Barn Kids rug on clearance as it was a display piece and the price was something you couldn't walk away from. It had a bit more purple hues in it than we envisioned so that made the design plan change just a bit.


This is the second plan created to work with the new rug.

And finally the after...














This framed photo was a huge inspiration piece for the room's design.












Is this not the cutest thing you've ever seen? He lights up too. Her dad works in the Be Our Guest restaurant in the new Fantasy Land in Magic Kingdom so it's a bit of a nod to him. She has the most wonderful collection of Disney memorabilia, the nice stuff not the tacky stuff.











What do you think? Do you love it as much as I do? This was my first girl's room to design and I loved every minute of it! It was so different from a boy's room in which I have plenty of experience in (hello mama to 4 of them!). As planned, we surprised her with the reveal so as soon as I'm able to figure out how to get it on here, I'll share it with you. And if you're wondering, she loves it... And so does mom!

Just changing the paint color was the biggest thing to me! I love a pretty gray and pink/blush palette!

I adore the girly pink with the horses. This room will give her the freedom to be silly and creative. Well done.
