One of my favorite parts is pulling the tape

As you can see, I had to adjust my pink. Once I started laying down tape, I could see that my vertical lines were going to cause my pink portion to look squatty -- because I am also going to do a horizontal band around the room, which would have taken even more from the pink. The stripes would have looked way too tall for that short of a room.

Oh, and the windows are not even close to level with each other, so I had to configure my horizontal band in a manner that would hide, rather than accentuate that detail -- which is why I had it higher in the first place. Plan B is working just as well and once I get crafty with the window treatment, you will never know...

sidenote update: for those of you who read of my paint finish choice/life meltdown (thank you for your sweet support, it felt great -- you guys rock). After my firm decision to go satin, I went with eggshell. I just couldn't do the shine of satin along with that bright pink on flawed walls -- the flat-er finish is beautiful.

The white is eggshell and the black is satin -- for extra pop and eggshell gets chalky smudges on the darker colors -- so satin wins with lower wall black.

I'm not much of a pink person but I love the way this room is shaping up so much I might want to move in!!!!

And Gracie? Well, I can't even show her these pictures because she would boil over with jealousy!!

Move on in!!!

Sometime in the next couple of months I will be doing Lizzie's room -- much more subdued -- you can show her those, lol.

When Winnie first told me her color combo, I was hard pressed to get excited. I ran an old hollywood vibe past her with a dusty pink -- mirrored stuff and antiqued black, etc.

Not so much. But then we found a picture of the colors and I figured out how to go her way in a manner that will be relevant for more than two years. It really is her. Good for her knowing what she likes.

My neices room looks similar and she is 17... I love it and if I didn't share an office with Honey I would want mine to look this way.
