So, here is the starting point for younger daughter's room. I found some green fabric at the store and made some curtains. I am not crazy about them, but she loves them and they serve the vital purpose of keeping monsters out of her room at night. I did my best to find a complimentary green for the walls (you can see some test swatches in the background). The green I chose (with daughter's input) is Martha Stewart's sea glass. Its very bright. To try and minimize the impact of this color, I decided to only paint the bottom 4/5th of the wall.

So, they say that you start designing a room with an inspiration piece that will lead to a colorscheme. Of course I didn't do that here and I'm telling myself that this is a learning process.
Next up is moulding, bedding, maybe curtains for her canopy.
