la la’s room reveal

I am beyond excited to share with you La La’s new room – completed in all of its cuteness.  If you are a regular around here than you know this is a project I’ve been working on for sometime.

A huge thank you to the following sponsors:
Serena & Lily / Hanging Rattan Chair / French Ring Sheets / Quilt / Euro Sham
The Land of Nod / Modern Clip Gold Desk Lamp / Dot Sheets / Pear Print / Circle + Triangle Garland
Shop Pretty Mommy / Areaware Bin
Berlin Strasse / Alarm clock

Even better than just sharing some photos of the room, I am thrilled to share a video of the room re-design.  I collaborated with Corbyn of Frank and Harvey and, let me tell you, they are genius at what they do – you’ll see what I mean (+ keep an eye out because you’ll be seeing a lot more of their work on the interwebs).   This video is a first for la la LOVELY but definitely not a last.  ENJOY!

Now, I do feel the need to confess.  Here goes . . . before this room, I have never fully decorated an entire space to completion.  I’m “a little here and a little there” kind of gal.  I start with gusto in one room and fizzle out in an entirely different room.

The other thing, you should know, is that this home of mine is the very same home I grew up in.  It’s very magical, yes, but it also presents it’s problems.  Like how to make Ella’s room look like Ella’s and not, oh say, my mom and dad’s old room, or my brothers teenage lair (this room has had many occupants + has seen many a makeover).

But today I’m happy to say that  this old room has taken on a bright and cheery look that is both modern and cozy.

    Looks wonderful, Trina! One of my daughters is begging for a room makeover and I think you’ve inspired me! I’m not sure if I want to show her this post, though…she will be super jealous. ;)

    One question: How did you hang the rattan chair? Liv would love something like it and we have an exposed beam in her room but can’t loop anything around it. Did you just bolt it? So curious!

    @katie//salt+pine, Thanks, Katie! I don’t know the proper name but we used a really big eye bolt. I can snap a picture and e-mail it to you if you want. We love the chair and I think your daughter would too ;) xo . t

    I’m with Katie………this serves as inspiration for my 10 year old daughther’s room….and that chair is fantastic!

    Thanks for sharing with us!

    Thanks!
    It’s awesome!!

    LOVE IT! Now don’t get disappointed when she wants to change it all in two years. UGH!
    My girls’ rooms have been redone so many times I think the walls are going to cave from the weight of the paint.
    But you did a beautiful job and it is so fresh and perfect – it will age beautifully with her if she will allow it!
    And very fun video.

    Trina, you did a beautiful job with your daughter’s room! It’s positively delightful! And you can tell she loves it too! The swing and the bed side lamps are my absolute favourite bits, partially because they’re both major lust items for me. Someday… ;)
    Loved the video too! You totally knocked my socks off with this post.
