Well, I kept my promise. I was able to completely transform my daughter’s serene nursery into the bold and colorful bedroom that reflects her personality, all without ever touching a paint brush to the walls. If you’ve been reading for a while, you’ll know that that sort of promise makes me all twitchy, like a drug addict looking for her next hit. But, I did it.
Emma’s nursery was a sweet little room for a sweet little baby. I put a lot of time into making sure it stayed soft and neutral. I had it in my brain that this would help her sleep well. I have no idea if my theory is based in any real science, but I do know that I could put her in her bed awake and she’d put herself to sleep. I credit my genius wall color choices.
My sweet little baby has turned into a creative, hilarious, brilliant, and beautiful 3 1/2 year old little girl. Her room needed some color, so I set out to make it happen – without painting the walls.
