Wagner Girls’ Room Makeover

Ever since Jack got his room makeover, our girls have been asking for one, too. Ava is almost 8 and Livy is almost 6 years old. Their room is simple and sweet and was a great starting point (tour more of their room here). But there’s one thing, it’s lacking personality. They would love to have color on the walls and some artwork to express their interests and passions.

Girls’ current room

Brian and I have been putting the wheels in motion and after over a month of planning, we are getting close to revealing their room makeover! Paint will be here on Friday, most of their decor has already arrived so we are ready to tackle the work this weekend!

Their biggest request was for a pink wall so that’s when I started conceptualizing the design. I want this makeover to be a reflection of them so their input from the paint color to decor is very valuable. I picked up four paint swatches with different variations of pink and for fun, did a poll in my IG stories.

Benjamin Moore Rose Bisque was the follower favorite!

Ava really liked Benjamin Moore’s Rose Bisque and Livy liked Farrow & Ball’s Pink Ground. I told them to take their time to come to a decision together. After painting the swatches, we headed out to Austin for Spring Break and stayed in this lovely AirbnB. The girls slept in this cute room painted a light pink color that inspired both to agree on Pink Ground. Admittedly, I wanted Rose Bisque because it seems a little more sophisticated but I love that this was both their decisions and they’ve persuaded me. Pink Ground is a creamy pink so their room will still feel warm but also light-filled with their beautiful windows!

Once they decided that, I skipped the mood board and pulled together a design development board which includes actual products to source. I did two versions. The first one was a wishlist. The second one was scaled down by $1K to better fit the budget and timing but doesn’t take away from the intent and is just as good! And we can add on pieces like the sham and duvet cover down the road.

One tip I like to share is to jot down words of how you and the person occupying the space wants it to feel.

Their room will continually evolve so I don’t ever consider a reveal to be “done”. Just at a good point to share which I’m hoping to share on Sunday or Monday. But most importantly, I’m excited for the girls to have a room that reflects them both!
