I basically started with the wallpaper in the scrumptious shade of pink & white, then chose a coordinating wall paint . Next I knew I needed a fabric with loads of colors to play off of.....so I chose the floral butterfly fabric. The navy charcoal fabric has shades of pink, lilac, turquoise,reds,orange, and yellow.
Once I had that fabric established I could have fun gathering other fabrics. Some of the pillows I gathered via Joss & Main, Etsy, West Elm, Serena and Lily or at Tuesday Morning. Here's a pic of my office when I was gathering.....I loved having the fun colors up on the board:
Carla Aston's design :
I used a neutral khaki linen fabric and they tufted it with buttons covered in the navy charcoal butterfly fabric, and added white modern legs to the bed. They placed each button in a way that you could see alot of the different colors of that fabric.
The window seat was upholstered in the same neutral linen and welted in the same navy charcoal print.
On the wall opposite the bed, I had a custom bulletin board made in navy linen with a frame of hot pink and shiny silver nailheads. Hard to see the scale of this board, but it's large. I believe it was like 42" x 42? I had to make it large so that we had "weight" on this side of the room too. The fun hot pink Pagoda lamp is from Worlds Away. The desk is West Elm and I think the ghost chair was Overstock?? (forgive this amateur picture, and this was before we hung the bulletin board....there isn't a professional pic of this side of the room...but loved that bulletin board and wanted you to see it!)
Tomorrow I'll be writing a post about the boys room.
Hope you'll stay tuned to the Patterson Project and.....
