Inspired by a budding artist

We were almost foiled by the snow, but thanks to our amazing crew, today will be a big day for one very lucky 12 year old girl.  One of our fab clients asked us to redecorate her daughter's bedroom as a birthday surprise.  Painters arrive first thing this morning (first thing on snow day time) and once the paint dries, it's our turn to transform the space.

When we met with our client a few months ago about her daughter's room, she shared some of her daughter's favorite things: bold color, especially yellow; animals, especially peacocks, butterflies, and owls; art; and reading.  And then she showed us her daughter's artwork.  This girl has talent!  We were blown away!

{Just two of the amazing works by our client's daughter that we had framed!}  

We were so inspired by the peacock that we used it as our jumping off point as we started to come up with design concepts.  Out of the options, our client ultimately selected our favorite concept for the space.

The Magical Thinking bedding from Urban Outfitters was perfect for incorporating all of the beautiful colors of the peacock.  We thought the paint jar lamp was a really cute nod to the artistic talent.  We couldn't resist the yellow Bungalow 5 table.  The artwork - sourced from Etsy -  brings in more bold color and some of her favorite animals, as does the PB Teen owl table lamp.  The turquoise trim detail on the table lampshade is just enough!

Yesterday we laid out some of the existing pieces with some fun and affordable accessories and artwork from local vendors that we've sourced over the last week for tomorrow's install (as a side note, PB Teen at Tysons Corner is closing down, so they have some great sales going on!!):

We loved the colorful frames we found at Michaels for all of the artwork.  The inspirational message artwork found at HomeGoods is so perfect for a soon to be teenage girl.  The hearts artwork, also found at HomeGoods, was a bargain and reminiscent of this more expensive piece.  The pillows and throw will add fabulous coziness and texture to the space.
