Simple Girls Room in Queen Anne Pink

(The room is simple, not the children.)

As soon as I heard the name of this paint color, I had to have it. The actual color, a warm and soft coral pink, was just a bonus.  The children aren’t as big fans as I am.  Maddie thinks it is orange, and Camilla, who is on a trip with Matt and Grandpa, started crying when I showed it to her on FaceTime.  So there’s that.

I’ve always though their room had good bones.  It’s a nice size: a bit over 13 x13, with FOUR windows.

The view from the side is beautiful.

And so is the view from the front:

But it is on the North corner of the house, and the grayish paint color always felt cold and drab, especially in the winter.  I have tried to liven it up with small quilts, colorful pictures, and things like that but it has never looked great.

Disaster.

(But its so cute that they wanted their beds together.)

After painting it Benjamin Moore Queen Anne Pink:

Isn’t it so much cozier now?  The color is so warm.  I switched out the paintings for ones that were more subtle, decluttered the dresser, and removed their HIDEOUS pink and purple toy chest.  (It’s just sitting in the hallway right now, awaiting its fate.)

Just wanted to share.  Have a good weekend!
