Planning my daughters bedroom and a giveaway

You may have seen in an earlier post that next year I plan on renovating my youngest daughters bedroom. If you ask her her favourite colour she says rainbow and her favourite things are mermaids, dogs and unicorns, so with these things in mind I want to create her a magical bedroom.

I am currently researching different painting methods. This may sound strange but I am wanting to incorporate a feature rainbow wall for her. I am looking at several different methods including using bubble wrapping to print different colours onto her wall, using bubbles themselves to paint and creating sections within the wall for a more defined rainbow. I am not sure which method to use yet, I like the idea of the bubbles but I am struggling to find a way to make it work. 

On this feature wall I also intend to either paint or find a large enough wall sticker of a unicorn, to add a touch of sparkle I would also like to find some glitter to add to the wall. I have started to put together a Pinterest board of my ideas of how I would like the walls to look.

I would like to use pastel colours on the other 3 walls. Maybe using different colours to try and keep with her love for rainbows. I am not sure if I will add glitter though as I want the feature wall to really stand out. Instead I want to decorate with art work that also captures the other things she loves mermaids, and of course dogs. 

Looking through the internet I have found some beautiful art work at a very reasonable price for her bedroom wall. Arthaus is an independent and self funded market place that currently showcases the work of over 400 artists. This means there is an enviable collection of art that continuously grows and changes as more artists add their work. The price is also set by the artists themselves so there are plenty of beautiful artwork at very affordable prices. I simply fell in love with this piece and ordered it for her bedroom. 

To incorporate mermaid into her bedroom I have decided to look for a blackout blind with a mermaid scale pattern. The wall which the window is on I think I will paint a lighter colour in order to have the blind stand out as art of its own.

I am actually really excited to start this project and know it won't happen quickly as I am not the fastest at painting but I cannot wait for it to unfold and also to see her face once it is complete. I am also hoping to film the transformation so you can see everything come together over on YouTube.
