The first step was truly picking the right color. The mom, SN, and oldest daughter C were very specific about using a “sophisticated” pink on the walls. I am not a pink person but I went to the BEHR® Paint website and created my own custom color palette for this room makeover that ranged from white, to pink to blues. I used their Paint Your Place Color Tool to see what the colors would look like in a room.
I knew I did not want to paint the walls pink because I did not want the room to look too saturated and too young. In my mind, I associate an all pink room with a baby or very very young girl. With two growing girls as the room owners, I felt that we needed to subtly incorporate the pink without over doing it.
I pitched SN and the girls on painting the ceiling pink and the walls an off white for a modern color block effect for the room. Using the feature color on the ceiling instead of on a feature wall allowed me to incorporate the desired pink as a subtle accent.

One of the areas in the room I am most proud of is this little reading area where we stenciled a COCOCOZY textile pattern I designed directly onto the wall! The contrast is so subtle but it is a great alternate to using wallpaper.
Was so thrilled to hear that after all of the decorating, the girls were thrilled with their space! I love the end result. Made me very happy to give them this space. Thanks to SN, BN and the girls for letting me makeover their room! Thanks also to my COCOCOZY team, design assistants AC and IS, for helping out!
Onto the next design adventure…
