Paris Paradise was the name my daughter gave her second room. At age 7, she was very involved in the design decisions for this room. She's an artist and a ballerina, among other things, so those talents were incorporated in her feminine retreat in several different ways.
All the furniture was secondhand. Her bed came from Goodwill, and with a fresh coat of white paint, it fit in perfectly with the Parisian theme. The nightstand was a bar stool-turned-table, skirted with fabric trimmed with baby, pink, silk roses.
You may recognize the chandelier from her previous room. Updated with a coat of white paint, the fixture was converted to a swag, so Cameron could easily access the switch from her bed. The long cord was camouflaged with yards of flowy tulle.
See the writing on the walls? Since my little, seven-year-old ballerina had her own form of curly writing, French ballet words were curly-qued on every wall. That was my favorite part of the whole room!
Cameron was a very prolific artist. She'd spread her art supplies on the kitchen floor and go crazy, creating all sorts of things. We finally decided she should keep her things contained in her own room, so I converted her closet to an art studio. It comes as no surprise that it was never cleaner than when this picture was taken! :-)
The chair is skirted with voile, gathered with black and white gingham ribbon. I added little pockets that held silk, pink rose petals.
The curtain rods were a bargain Big Lots find and a fun way for Cameron to display her art and ballet leotards.
I loved the soft wall color. It's Behr's Cream Rose, in case you're wondering.
We decorated this room right before everyone else was doing pink and black Parisian rooms. In fact, her room was inspiration for other little girls' rooms, we know.
I hope you've enjoyed a glimpse into the past and a part of my little girl's personality. We'll be finishing up her third room soon.
