Monica spent a number of days pouring over all different bedding online. She is 12 years old and looking for something fun, without being too young.
Over the years attending the Parade of Homes with me, she took a liking to the new pink/green combination we saw in a lot of girls’ rooms. And so it’s no surprise that she settled on a hot pink/lime green bedding set.
We purchased the quilt, sham, and sheets from JCPenney, but at the last minute decided against getting the curtains, dust ruffle, and throw pillows. She wanted a room with more personality and style than she could get buying a complete matchy-matchy set.
After some local searches we found some cute, sheer, green-striped curtains and a number of cheerful throw pillows in all different textures at Wal-Mart. And the prices were much better. We also picked up a plain, white dust ruffle that we’ll add some green trim to, maybe rick-rack or pom-poms or something fun.
We really love the fur headboard in this picture, so we’ll probably make something that adds interest there.
Last, we threw in the Phoebe Table Lamp in pink. It’s got a clear pink base and a feathered shade. It was backordered for weeks, but we finally got it. It’s darling and Monica just loves it. Oo la la!
