a young lady's room

I've mentioned that I'm in the process of adding a new room to our house for my three little girls ... and that's left Taylor asking, "What about me?" She was seven when we moved into the house and I admit, she has pretty much outgrown her hot pink, zebra striped, moroccan themed room. Yes Taylor, let's redecorate! I had her start by picking out new bedding {gotta love PBteen} and together we decided on colors of paint; where to put each color; etc.; etc. I had some suggestions for her on how to have some fun with the colors and I really enjoyed 'designing' it with her. Since we were going to be gone for 2 weeks, it was a great time to have it painted ...

When we got home yesterday, we both ran up to her room to see the results ... beautiful! It fits her perfectly. She's just turned 13, not a super girly-girl, not overly stylish {yet!}, and seems to prefer a clean look. I'm so excited with the way it turned out.

The best part was that she seemed to really value, want, and trust my opinions. Maybe I'm a cool mom after all? {Don't tell her I said that ...}

I was late in my planning of all this, so didn't get to the window treatment part of her room {which explains the sort of barren look ... well, that and the fact that she's in the process of organizing everything as she puts it back in her room. which she was supposed to do as she was taking things out of her room, but instead threw out into the living room in a heap! okay, maybe I just lost my cool mom status with that ranting ...}

These are the fabrics we chose for window treatments. I can't wait to see it all come together!

{and um, yeah ... that's camp rock playing on her tv. hail to the jo bros.}

Um, does it make me a super uncool mom if I say I want that room for myself?? And who doesn't love the Jonas Brothers (yes, now I'm certain I'm super uncool LOL).
