Olivia’s Princess Room

Was over the moon to do my first Girl’s room!!  My client’s daughter wanted a little girl’s princess room and of course purple and pink were the perfect choices.  Whew can’t believe it is finally done.  What a crazy experience, I am so proud of the hard work put into it but the real reward was how Olivia’s face lit up when she saw it for the first time.

Here is the before picture…. now that’s pink!!


And the After…

So many people thought the walls were wallpaper but it is actually a stencil-


stencil pm that crazy wall took me 15 hours to complete.  Half way through I thought what the heck have I gotten myself into.  I have stenciled before but this was a job all to itself!  Needless to say, I was very glad it was over!!

The stencil is from Royal Design Studio called Elegancia Allover Stencil.

The wall color is Sherwin Williams Dimintive Pink (SW 6588) and the stencil cream from Royal Design Studio is three parts Pearl Oyster, one part Frosted Lilac.

Here are some additional projects I did for the room….

I found some perfect side tables to complete the princess room decor at a little place called 1905 Emporium in Richmond, IL here is the before shot………..

Here it is after….

The paint is Annie Sloan Old White, and I used part of the stencil i used on the wall.  The stencil cream was the same I used on the wall – three parts Pearl Oyster to one part Frosted Lilac.

  9. You have great talent and did an outstanding job!! I can just see the face of the little girl. How inspirational you are!!!

    • You are so sweet! The family was actually out of town when I finished the room and the mom asked my daughter and I to hide in the little girl’s room to surprise her and take a picture of her walking in, it was priceless!! I wish everyone could see it in person, the pictures don’t really tell the whole picture. Thanks again.

  10. Lynda,

    It was so much fun to meet you! The room turned out amazing! I love those panels! Thank you so much for the wonderfully sweet comment! You totally made me smile! I read the blog post to the family last night….and my kids go….”Mom….we didn’t know you chased down a robber.” I need to find the newspaper article and frame it for their rooms! :)

    Have a blessed and incredible day!

  18. Just came over from Better After. I HAD to come see what it is that you do – that room is AHH-MAZING! I think I could swoon right now! Are your designs done completely by your hand – Do you do all the furniture yourself?

    • Hi LIndsay— thanks so much- yes the stencil was done by my own two sore hands… the stencil took about 15 hours- but was so worth it in the end….thanks again!

  19. Saw this on Better After and had to come leave some love…

  21. Stunning! Hope you’re selected!!

  22. Lynda…so fabulous! Love it. Shared and pinned. You are just amazing!

  23. Wow, girl. It is so clear that you put a TON of time, effort, and artistry into this bedroom – – from the stenciled walls to the reupholstered furniture to the simply gorgeous bedding and styling! It’s top notch and you would make a FANTASTIC contestant in CWTS. Here’s to hoping you get picked because I drool over everything you do, and I know you’d churn out some epic projects and rock everyone’s socks off. Best of luck, friend!

    • awe don’t you know how to make a gal feel extra super special, you made my day!! I so hope we can play together with this contest… that would make me smile! thx again for all the amazing compliments!
