Star's Room Makeover

Star is my design minded daughter and knew exactly how she wanted her room. For the colour scheme she chose a deep red and white. The longest wall was painted in Roasted Red, and the rest of the walls are Apricot White.

The highlight for Star of having her room done was getting this new Ikea day bed. The section with the storage drawers pulls out to make a double bed for sleepovers, and she can use it as a sofa during the day. The duvet cover came from Argos (a bargain, reduced from £14.99 to £4.99), as did the red rose canvas.

This is the other end of the long wall. She already had the curvy mirror, but it looks much more of a feature on the red background. Like all the other furniture in the room, it came from Ikea.

The shelf holds her penguin collection - Cherub had taken the largest, softest penguin for a walk, so there is a gap at one end - and her piggy bank collection is on the desk (nicely in the way, but she insisted that was where she wanted it!).

She kept her existing white curtains, but has plans to trim them with red braid and tassels. The furry bean bag was a Christmas present a couple of years ago.

... and back to the beginning. The photo frames are still waiting for pictures to go into them. A friend gave her a photo collage that needs to be hung on the red wall, and she is looking for a white wall clock.

When I was little, I pleaded to have my room painted red. My parents did it, but I have to day that your daughter's room is much classier- the white walls with an accent of red looks beautiful!! She has good taste. :)
