A glimpse of Gen’s world…

While I think, dream and obsess over things like household projects, interior design styles, etc- my daughter does the same over fashion design and apparel. It’s really cute, and it’s been a consistently growing thing for a couple of years now. In fact, this time last year we were planning a big “redecorate” fest for her much larger bedroom. Such things as gloriously upholstered dress forms, etc- were in the works. Unfortunately, reality dialed our number and highlighted our awareness to the fact that with said big room came much responsibility and extreme privacy that Gen’s judgement really wasn’t suited for… It all worked out, but it was sad. 
Mostly it was my interior design dreams which took a bruising. Genny’s dad, my abundantly awesome Chw, was so upset over every ugly detail that transpired- that he ixnayed every possible idea of anything cool happening to her room- new small bedroom or huge old bedroom- and sadness prevailed in our little lady kingdom… 
As time passed, I was able to talk him into a few things here and there. We’d already purchased non-refundable bedding, for example… which did NOT go with the lilac paint. (the trim on the bedding is this beet color that the walls are now) So yeah, it’s been more of a work in progress… 
With no room for a dress form, which could be THE saddest fact of all… 
At any rate, one day as I was taking photos of my office (old big bedroom), Gen told me that she LOVES her room and asked me to take pictures of it. She’s so proud of it… In all of it’s tininess… 
So, I thought I’d share… 
 the actual “theme” of the room is Paris… though, she has a few random “tween” like elements which I anally feel through the whole theme off… At any rate-
– the walls are “beet” in color. 
-The picture to the left is actually a print with a collection of Vintage Couture covers… Very cool…
-The picture to the right is a collage frame that her brother and sister gave her for Christmas. It’s an awesome collection of photos of them together, since she’s been a part of our family. 
– ugly pink thing at the foot of her bed is an ugly, god-awful pillow with stupid skulls and cross bones on it. Please ignore it… 
 – please note the pantless American Girl dolls on the top shelf of her book shelf… *sigh*
– if her room were to have a second theme, it would be how much Genny adores her big brother Lucas. She has a picture of the two of them on her nightstand, one on her vanity, one on her dresser, another photo of him on her vanity- and this is in addition to the ones in that collage frame… 
– note- on her closet door, photo booth strips… of her and her brother. Geesh…

  1. i love the bold color! when i was her age, i wanted to paint my room something similar, but my dad wouldn't let me. he would only let me paint it *white*. it felt like a jail cell in that room! gen's room feels nice and cozy!

  2. I love the bold colour too. With the girlie details is makes everything so romanric. Lovely room, I wish I had my own room when I was growing up, instead of sharing the room with my brother. We had to have neutral colour, boo! Thanks for sharing the pictures
