We recently finished an adorable little girl’s bedroom that was featured in HGTV Magazine’s March/April issue. This cute room featured all the pops of pink and bright colors as we enter the spring months! Keep reading for a fun Q & A and this month’s Design Spotlight, featuring our Senior Interior Designer, Lisa.
Pink is always playful and pink is definitely here to stay in the design world! There will always be a time and a place for it. Pink can be used for soft and romantic, vibrant and playful, or just that perfect modern pop in a sea of neutral.
Lisa loves adding pops of color to any Dallas Interior Design job. Pink walls and flowery touches in a little girl’s room can look original and also super cute. Lisa chose Resounding Rose by Sherwin Williams for this special little girl’s paint color in her bedroom in the charming neighborhood of Lakewood in Dallas and hung peppy resin flowers to complete the design. Metallic stencils on the wall by the trundle bed mimic floating bubbles, while the beaded mirror and pom-poms on the curtains come adorably full circle!
Question: What paint color is on the wall?
Answer: SW 6318 Resounding Rose, Flat Finish
Question: Where is the wallpaper from?
Answer: Not Wallpaper! Surprise! Artisan hand painted wall treatment custom curated for this space. Still love wallpaper but this allows full customization, no seems and texture even better than wallpapers! Used the wall color and other tones to mix and achieve how we wanted to the metallic coral background to read and then it’s a luster plaster product dragged over a stencil to create our champagne bubbles.
Question: Why such a fun shape/design for the mirror?
Answer: Uttermost, bubble, circle motif all around for movement and playfulness, plays with the scale of the wall treatment.
Question: What material are the flowers on the wall made of/where from?
Answer: Resin flowers used as a unique take on art, to avoid predictable paintings/framed art, and adds some texture.
Question: What do you love about using pink/what kind of mood does it set in this room?
Answer: Pink adds fun personality regardless of the shade, it can be girly but strong, bold, confident like our vibrant little client!
Question: There is a lot of pink in this room but it doesn’t feel like too much at all, how did you achieve that?
Answer: The shade of pink definitely drives if it’s overkill and how it reads. A coral influence kept this one fun and playful rather than a young soft pink or a sophisticated girly blush. Other colors contrast in the space to add texture and interest so the pink isn’t drowning. The colors make friction with the pinks to avoid the overkill.
Question: As a designer do you think pink is here to stay?
Answer: There will always be a time and a place for pink as long as it’s used properly to the space and the clients! Pink can be used for soft and romantic, vibrant and playful, or just that perfect modern pop in a sea of neutral.
Question: Were the homeowners happy? How does this room make the little girl feel?
Answer: Yes, thrilled. This was a huge transformation and exciting for our sweet girl’s first big girl room. She first said she loved “her flowers” and still does. Asking if the room was “for me??” she described it as sparkly, which we see as a feeling more than anything and a win overall!
