To be Pink, or not to be Pink....that is the question

Today I am linking up with Beverly and the Pink Saturday gang to share my daughter's bedroom, and the debate on whether to change this room or not, or.....perhaps I'm even asking more for advice on, how should we change this room? Anna has a beautiful room right now. How about stepping inside.....
Gotta tell ya girls....it's pretty pink:)
Let's walk on in and take a look.  I really do think it's pretty cute just like it is.
 Why do little girls have to grow up?
 This is my favorite picture of Anna w/the verse from Psalms "....that our daughters be as pillars, sculptured in palace style."
 Sweet little bed with all her handmade pillows.
 Electrical entertainment area:)
 And....the pink powder room.
 I don't know....seems to me, she has such a lovely little space.
 Trinkets from sweet friends.
 Old pink cabinet bought for $10.00:)
The closet had no doors, so we fashioned this curtain made from eyelet fabric.
Now.......Anna just turned 13 and is very much wanting a change-a-roo. When we bought this house, the whole thing, and she's a big girl, was covered with wall paper. Very much in vogue for the 70's and 80's, but it all HAD to go.....except this room. I just felt like it was a perfect little girl room. We plan to put our house back on the market in the spring, so I suppose painting it a more neutral color would not be such a bad thing. We found a most gorgeous inspiration from Miss Gracie's House, and have somewhat of an idea on SOME things. I need some advice though. Anna has said she could go with a neutral color on the walls, but, then she's really wanting lots of contemporary elements. One thing we are definitely doing is the Music Speaks stencil Renee and her daughter used....just not sure what color background to use. Anna would love to have purple....but wouldn't that get old? We plan to make it portable so we can take it with us when we move. These are the colors she loves......electric purple, lime green, and solar blue:) Hmmmmm....just can't quite get a picture for it. Well....I would LOVE it if you could give me some input. Promise....I'll share the after pictures too. Blessings...Shine

It is a beautiful room but ... 13 is time for your sweet girl to have a change if she wants. Definitely wallpaper has to go and neutralize the walls.
If she is a purple person she will never get tired of purple. My living room walls and bedroom are purple, have been for ten years and I still love them.
Can't wait to see your photos.
Wishing you a blessed New Year !

Thanks for visiting my blog and becoming a follower!! ...and thanks for leaving such sweet comment!

I'd go for a light colour in your daughter's bedroom, like cream and then she can add different coloured accessories along the way. It's a cheap way of changing the look of a bedroom.

Happy New Year :)

This is a darling room for a little girl, but I have 12 and 14 year old grand-daughters and their dad recently let them redo their rooms in their choices....I think if you removed all the wallpaper and the floral things and then went with a neutral color (one of my girls choose BRIGHT blue, and the other a pale purple) even on the furniture to keep it one color,
then she could accessorize with things she likes in other colors.
I love MISS GRACIE'S HOUSE, too, and I know the slogan you are talking about...that would be cute!
One of my girls chose a beaded curtain across her double windows that have blinds, too, and that is a cute look. Girls at 13 love to fix up their room with their own style so this would be a neutral start for her.......
I'll stay "tuned in" for future photos....!!!
Wishing you and your family a HAPPY NEW YEAR"......Francy

Its a beautiful room Shine..almost like her own little apartment in there!
Love the canopy and love that it so very feminine here!
But if you chose to go neutral, she could add pops of colour all around her room in decor and assessories.
Whatever you both decide it'll be perfect for her I'm sure!
Happy New Year dear friend!!!
Thank you for the sweet gift of "you"!

Love,
Deborah xoxoxooxox
