Will there be enough room? Well, in this case, the fictional I can put whatever I want in this room, yes! This book would lend itself well to a really super bright and crazy colourful room - a playroom perhaps. But when I read the book, it's the palm tree that really grabs me and the bright colours make me think of a fun, spunky tropical room.
Perhaps it's the pink and orange dots on the edge but this book spoke girl's room to me so that's the direction I took. Using the pink and orange as the basis, and thinking tropical I wanted to create a room that a little girl could grow into and stay in love with for many years. I'm so in love with this room I kind of want to use it as my inspiration for changing up my youngest daughter's space.
These boards are a lot of fun to design and work with. As always my top four fabrics are in the left hand corner as well as some fun artwork to help bring the space together. I think in this room I would make the palm tree a huge print. While the book is alphabet based I didn't want the room to be alphabet focused - so a little monogramming here on toss cushions, and maybe a free standing letter would be plenty. I know flamingos are so trendy right now and while I love them - I thought staying away would give the room a bit more longevity and not date the room so much. So if I had to put one in I'd opt for one of the many toss cushions with flamingo motifs on it.
