For this project, my client is a 1st grader who's grown tired of her toddler room and is looking for a little independence, aka a cool big girl's room. Her mom wanted to give her a transitional “big girl room” without the inconveniences of painting and the expense of all new furniture. So, I delivered on her wishes to keep cost down while making a high impact with a few new pieces and key accessories.
  • First and foremost she asked for a desk...a place for her pictures, crafts, writing supplies and tiny trinkets.  Mom was hoping the desk would encourage some focused homework time. 
  • New bedding can completely change the vibe of a room, as it did with this room - I choose one that's sophisticated and sweet, but not too girly, so she can grow with it. I love John Robshaw's colors & prints...and the quality is superb, guaranteed for a luxurious night's sleep. 
  • Wall decor and organization - somehow girls have a way of collecting more jewelry than their moms at this age. So, a jewelry organizer is a must. I love the one I found at Urban Outfitters, perfect for them to see everything and hopefully start wearing them (not all at once). Also, found a super cute mirror to go with the independence theme, as they start creating their own look. 
  • Extra storage - you can never have too much storage...a place for everything and everything in it's place, I say. A night table, end of bed bench with a shelf, large baskets and wall shelves will do the trick here.
When all was completed, I got a big blushing ear-to-ear smile from the client and in her words (also those borrowed from a famous redhead orphan), “I think I’m gonna like it here!”

  1. I have gone through your post and came to know that it is regarding the illusion of control. But this concept is not at all clear to me. I would like to know more on this topic. Please provide itfriv Games online 2020
