princess suite...

In honor of my girl finishing up her junior year in college and coming home this weekend I thought I would share with you the "princess suite" before the princess brings all her "stuff" home and the room does not look as sweet as I would like it. Hope you all like pink... Jac picked the color of her walls ~ it is a salmony pink ~ reminds me of the geraniums my Mom always use to get every year. I love the way these two rose paintings pop against the wall color... I found this cute cherub lamp on ebay and the lamp shade at a local consignment shop... Sweet little mirror that hangs atop the two rose paintings... Pretty pillow from Marshalls... She loves Audrey... I just recorded "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and am hoping to watch it together when she gets home. I love her vanity. It was a gift from my sister in law Christine when Jaclyn was little...I found this fabulous old syroco mirror at a yard sale for $2!! It was gold but it got a coat of dreamy white... These cute little blocks got a shabby makeover... When she was younger her room was covered in "Titanic" posters and pictures of Leo. My Mom bought her this little music box... I recently put this cabinet in her room for more storage. I am just looking for the time to give it a shabby makeover... Jaclyn loves mirrors just like her Mom ~ this one was from our beach cottage... I love this lingerie chest... But I love this bureau even more... Isn't it fabulous!! I found this beauty in New Bedford. I intended it for my booth but thought it would be perfect for the princess suite. Look at the roses... Don't you think they should make white televisions... This was from her sweet sixteen party... Beautiful then... Beautiful now... I've missed you Jac and am very happy you are coming home... I am joining Cindy at My Romantic Home for Show and Tell and am hoping to get in on the Pink Saturday fun that Beverly hosts over at How Sweet the Sound. Thank you all for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!!!

Cindy said...

Jac's room is really beautiful and so shabby! I love it. Reminds me of when my girl was coming home from college and I moved her room, giving her a larger one and decorating it was so much fun in a Flea Market shabby style. She loved it and still decorates in much the same way.
i hope you have fun with your beautiful daughter this summer.
Hugs, Cindy S

I wish that I could have a room like that when I was your daughter's age. It's so pretty and every little detail is more amazing than the first. The dresser is the peace de resistance
for sure. She will never have to leave her room or want to because everything she needs is there and amazingly gorgeous!

She is also a very lovely girl.

Those rose pictures are fabulous and that bureau so lovely -- as is your precious daughter. Enjoy your time together. I just saw Jodie's post about the beautiful cabinet card you sent to her. So sweet of you! Jodie is one of a kind! Best wishes, Tammy

Charlotte said...

Welcome to Pink Saturday. Absolutely love everything in the bedroom! I see mirrors like this all the time at yard sales but never stop to think I could paint them! Dooohhh! You can paint the TV yourself; just make sure to mask off any important areas that don't need paint. Good luck!

Natasha said...

That would be my dream room!! I love it. Jaclyn is really so very lucky to have such a sweet mother. I am sure she will just adore this gorgeous room.

Best wishes,
Natasha.

Goodness!!
What a fantastic room for your daughter!!

I love the syrocco art that was repainted in white!

And that dresser is to die for! I would have had to keep it to!

I love the vanity or "kidney table". My Dad built one a very long time ago for my Mom and I now have it in my Sewing/Craft Room as my sewing table and my sewing machine is on it!!

I truly enjoyed my visit here today!!

Gracie Jewellery said...

Oh! this is the room of my little girl dreams! I sooooooo wanted a pink bedroom but I shared a room with my sister. Hard to have a half pink room and half a blue room. So it was always my mom's favourite colour-yellow-limey yellow :>(
Jac, you are so lucky. Better give your mom a hug for letting you be you!
Happy Pink Saturday

such a sweet sweet room. When my grand-daughter was born it was a given that one of our guest bedrooms was going to be turned into shabby, pink and white. I love it! Happy Pink Saturday.

Vintage Remixed said...

Gorgeous room. I know she will be so excited about it. What girl doesn't look all that pink and shabby chic stuff? Great job!

Brenda@Cozy Little House said...

I had never thought about it before, but they really should make white televisions! Hey, I think I actually had a white Sony like thirty years ago! Had fun visiting your sweet blog. And that is a lovely shade of pink on the walls.
