WEEK 1: INTRODUCE YOUR SPACE AND TELL US YOUR PLAN
PHOEBE’S BEDROOM MAKEOVER
TODAY I AM PAYING HOMAGE to one of my favorite rooms in the house…. occupied by my favorite girl in the world, my daughter Phoebe Holiday. When Phoebe was about to turn 13, she asked for a SURPRISE Makeover for her Birthday …of course , she barely finished the sentence and I was ON IT!.
For months I PLANNED THE MAKEOVER and secretly collected items to pull it all together. Finally, Phoebe went away on a 7th grade school field trip for the 3 days before her Birthday and I did the ENTIRE room, including painting the room,while she was away and did the BIG REVEAL when she got home!
NAVY AND PINK BEDROOM
THE ROOM WAS A HIT! Not only did Phoebe LOVE it…I entered her bedroom and won the Washington Post Kids Room Contest is 2012!!!!Her room was also featured in Susannah Salks 2014 Book “Decorate Fearlessly”!!!
Phoebe’s Navy and Pink Teen girl bedroom has been blogged about, featured in magazines, House crashed by Young House Love, Pinned and pasted and NOW..though it is hard to say goodbye, we are going to do a MAKEOVER!!!!
THIS ONE ROOM CHALLENGE MAKEOVER has been on the Horizon and was again inspired by Phoebe, who now, at almost 17 is ready for a NEW room…and this time she is taking part in most of the decision-making. I could not be more excited to have this last hurrah before her senior year of high school begins and … well, we are just not going there right now!…she has grown up too fast and ANY opportunity to spend more time together is a BONUS for me!
