Pink Island Surf Bedroom

I decided to re-paint Arielle's room a couple of months ago. The original color that we chose was light yellow and although I really liked the color it didn't go with the tan on the ceiling and we never did a third coat of paint which it really needed. Seeing how I couldn't remember the name of the paint I just decided to go with a different color. I chose light blue based on the fact that Arielle's bedding {Pink Island Surf collection from PBK} complimented it well and when I asked Arielle what color we should paint her room blue was her choice! Not only did we repaint the walls but we also shuffled her furniture around, added a matching bench at the foot of her bed and spruced up an old bookshelf with beadboard. After adding a few beachy accessories and some new wall art the end result is fabulous and exactly what I was hoping for her room to look like! I wish I had taken "before" pictures but no such luck so here are the "after" pictures only.

I just want to add that after looking at the pictures on Chris Kauffman's "Just Beachy" blog, I see a lot of resemblences in my decorating style compared to hers. She just re-designed her daughter's bedroom as well and I noticed some similarities especially in the furniture choices. CK is such a wonderful designer and a huge inspiration to me in my decorating endeavors.

This room was inspired by Pottery Barn Kids!

I LOVE it! Gosh, I just did my daughter's bedroom, but it's not even NEAR the cuteness of this room!
