toddler to little girl room: choosing a paint color

As I wrote about last week, we have been tackling our first big home project of the year: Updating Isadora’s bedroom from toddler cutesy to little girl pretty. Good-bye primary colors and rounded corners. Hello big girl bed and decor that even a teen would love. Picking a wall color that will do what we need — make her small room feel large while giving us a background that will work with whatever her whims are — is not easy. We momentarily debated a purple or pink hue but zeroed on a blue grey color called Beacon Gray by Benjamin Moore. It is just right the amount of blue and will contrast nicely with any color we decide to pop against it – purple, orange, yellow — and of course hot pink!

Coming next: Wallpaper vs stencils?

Oh I really like that color. Great choice.
