Lil' sis is all grown up and is decorating!

Saturday, April 3, 2010

Today is my little cousin's birthday. To celebrate her twenty something-something birthday we have engaged in a little cross-atlantic remote decorating over the last several months. Specifically, through emails, msn chats and a quick visit from her in January, we have discussed paint colours and wallpaper choices, exchanged UK furniture store links so that she could renovate her 13 year old looking bedroom to fully reflect her sophisticated and stylish self. It all started with this inspiration picture.

Well, this is where it all started for me anyway. My cousin didn't know it at the time.

Too many frames, perhaps?

Oh no, knotty pine.

Although still a little incomplete, the after is sensational. Can't wait to see it in person when its all done! Did I tell you how proud I am of you? Happy Birthday R.

Fun bold wallpaper.

Painted pine. Fabulous.

Lovely, just like my cousin.
