a is for abigail, part two

Finally!  A finished room!

Remember, 
I was trying to create a room 
that was a  
fun but feminine
bright and happy, reflection of my girl

I will let the photos speak for themselves today.
In my next post 
I will give details 
and 
answer any questions you might have.
So ask away.

Enjoy, I know I am...

Oh Rene, I just love what you did for your daughter. Everything looks so pretty. I am curious what the significance of the number 5 is. Is it perhaps a favorite number?

What a beautiful room.I love that pop of red.It all works so well.I am sure she loves it.Did you make that photo/artwork above her bed and framed saying?How did you do that.They are perfect for her room.

Rene~ I love how it turned out..and the framed saying above her bed is absolutely beautiful! I LOVE the whole room but that part of it stole my heart! Wonderful job- I'll bet she is just thrilled~ xo Diana

Privet and Holly said...

Perfection! Makes me
want to re-do my girl's
room, even though she
is a junior in HS! We've
given it a few tweaks over
the years, but she won't
let me paint over the
Beatrix Potter figures
we had hand-painted
on the walls {her choice}
when she was six. I bet
Miss A. was thrilled with
the outcome!

It looks like straight out of a magazine. My kids will not let me touch their rooms...they like to style them all on their own. Thankfully they are all creative and have good taste. I love love love every touch, especially all the A's...and the chandie! She is so cute! I like her style...her hair, torn jeans, and leather jacket with guitar under arm. My baby just turned 16 and he is the cheerful spirit in our home too. It is a blessing to have our babies give us so much joy while the older ones grow up and leave.

Oh my goodness--I love everything about this room! The big sign above the bed is beautiful. I love the A that I believe has paper behind it and maybe a vinyl letter on top of the glass? Beautiful! Several things here I want to copy:)

Faded Charm said...

Abigail's room turned out amazing...right down to every little personal detail:-) I bet it was fun too!

Finally finshed window display...whew, am i glad because I've been sooo stressed about this one. Also, went away from the pink. It just wasn't coming together and the walls are a dark brown which I knew would make all my white "pop". Boy did it ever. I took photos, but was late in the afternoon, so not great and hard to take through window to get the full effect. You know everything looks better in person. I'm very happy with how it turned out:-)

Hope all goes well for you....I know how you feel.

xoxo

You must have had so much fun, mother and daughter. So many creative ideas, and I really like the chandelier and lampbases in white.

I have a table just like the one next to the bed. I have no idea what era it is from, if you do could you shoot me a mail? I just love all that you have done to this room...superb!!!

Darleen ~ Places In The Home said...

"A" is also for absolutely gorgeous! The pictures speak volumes. White is a wonderful color to build upon, and the accent colors you used grab and hold the eye. What grabbed my eye & my heart? The framed words I love, "Where words fail... music speaks" and the detail to love.

Linda said...
