You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby...Room
Since I'm busy with a writing project this week, here's a shot from the archives. Chinoiserie updated for a baby girl's room, with monkeys, hummingbirds, and even a pink ceiling. The only bad thing about this one? Within a few months of completion, the clients had an unexpected opportunity to move to a home better suited to their growing family and home-based business.
The homeowner was heartbroken to leave behind this very personalized room, but I had a plan. In the new house, we used the existing caramel wall color, added a harlequin diamond glaze, and "transplanted" four of the curly vines into pots painted on the walls. One of the monkeys even came along, this time in a mural on one wall. Little Gracie Quinn was right at home, once her beloved birds and monkey arrived. I love a story with a happy ending.
