First Look: Ella's Room


Since we never painted the kids rooms as promised in Albuquerque, it was a top priority with this house. Ella & Greta both moved into rooms occupied by teenage girls. They thought these rooms were pretty fancy! But, both girls ultimately decided to pick different paint colors.


Ella choose Hale Navy by Benjamin Moore. It is a beautiful color, but had we painted the whole room navy, she would have been living in a black box! We picked one accent wall & the other walls are painted Gray Owl by Benjamin Moore.
Since we regained a guest room, Ella needed a new bed (thank you Ikea). The bedspread was a steal from West Elm (her selection) & she found the splash of orange lamp from Target.

A display case for trophies & treasures came from a piece we previously had in the dining room. 

I bought this dresser when I had my first apartment. We used it as a changing table for all the kids. A fresh paint of turquoise paint & four "new" hand painted knobs from Aunt Jessie's new house & we were in business! A BIG thank you to my Mom for her help in emptying all the boxes & organizing Ella's room.
Phase two will include curtains, hanging photos & adding the finishing touches. But, luckily Ella is already very happy in her new space (bare walls and all).
