We’re making over our teen daughter’s bedroom in this pink and gold girl’s bedroom makeover. Come see the ugly before pics and the inspiration plan.

This post is sponsored by FrogTape®. All opinions, projects and ideas are based on my own experience.

If you’ve been around for the last few months, you know that we’ve been hard at work making over our “new” house. Just about every room has needed painting – including ALL the trim, doors and crown which I of course did not notice until I got into painting each room. #ugh

Our middle daughter Lilly’s room is no exception.

Her room looked like this when we initially viewed the house:

Gotta love how realtor photos make a space look nice even when it desperately needs a new coat of paint. That’s the magic of tidying up and decluttering, right there!

Her room then looked like this when we moved some of her existing things into the space:

Lilly's room before

(Side Note: Yes, the blue paint is the same in all three of the photos above! Thus the reason I NEVER help anyone choose paint colors based on photos!)

If you know our girl, you know she is absolutely not a “blue” girl. She is in fact “pink” through and through.

So when FrogTape® challenged us to make over a room for $1000 for their Paintover Challenge along the lines of the 2017 design trend they created with Celebrity Designer Taniya Nayak called ‘Luscious Layers’, Lilly’s room came to mind immediately:

Allow yourself to feel wrapped in luxury with lush folds of drapery, color, texture and softness. Create a dreamy effect with blush pinks, soft grays and creams that enhance this style. To easily integrate this trend, start by painting a simple wall color and then add layers with cozy bedding, sheer drapery and rugs.

Lilly had already decided that she wanted a softer, prettier style, with more muted colors, some gold and lots of layers – which was of course perfect for the Luscious Layers look! Given that we had only just a year and a half ago gotten Lilly a new bed and dresser for her old bedroom, we decided those didn’t need to change. But some other elements definitely needed updating.

Our inspiration included these rooms:

Randi Garrett Design

Rocky Mountain Decals | Etsy

Bows and Sequins

After looking at plenty of inspiration, Lilly and I worked together to come up with this overall style and design plan:

Thank goodness FrogTape® sent over some of their goodies – there’s a LOT of trim to paint and ain’t nobody got time for cleaning paint off the floor!

  1. I love your inspiration board, so grown up, where does the time go ?! Love FrogTape, that’s all we use anymore! We have had soooo many boo boos when it comes to other brands of tape.

  2. I LOVE Frog Tape!!!!!! I used it to do a large black and white striped wall in my living room and was HOOKED! I actually use it for more than just painting. If I’m not using decorative washi, I’m using FrogTape. 😀 I can’t wait to see the finished room. Sounds dreamy!

  3. WOW !!– Lilly’s room is going to be so soft and so ‘Pretty in Pink’… with white AND grey.
    Really like the pink and grey combo. Gonna check out the Sherwin William room colors.
