One caveat - I had an amazing interior design team that worked on the decor of the main rooms of the house (and created a masterplan for furniture placement for the entire house, selected many of the finishes throughout the house, and determined the paint scheme for all interior rooms). However, Julie and I put together her room ourselves - both for budget reasons, and because I wanted her room to be fairly low key. We slowly but surely selected the items for her room based on what she liked and how she wanted her room to look.
Although Julie and I have slowly but surely made progress on the room, and it has become more comfortable and serene, Julie asked for a bit of pattern as the feel in the room was very neutral and plain. It was actually quite a challenge to work with Julie's two requests - a spa-like color scheme that also has some vibrant pops of color and lively pattern.
It took me a long, long time to find a fabric that we both agreed upon, that had the right colors, and was youthful enough for a pre-teen room! But, I finally found some fabrics that work beautifully, and everything will be put in place next week. We had some pillows made, and the bench is being recovered. The fabrics are fun and vibrant and youthful, and provide the color and pattern that Julie wanted added to her room.
When all is in place next week, I will take some pictures for part II of the post.
