Not quite the neon paint splashes in their inspiration photo, but they love it! It took a while to come up with pairing this blue with the zebra and hot pink. I started with the idea of turquoise but they thought it would look too "tween-ish", which after doing their little sisters' room- I would have to agree. I saw this color blue on a metallic throw pillow and - bam!- inspiration. And the zebra print was a little easier to find/work with than paint splatters. FUTURE PLANS INCLUDE: Window treatments, something over their beds, something over the newly painted black bureau that used to be mine. Well, technically, it used to be my grandparents- and someday the complete set will be restored to it's former maple glory (because they sure don't make 'em like they used to!) but for now, the one piece is working for us here and the rest of the set is being stored.
I think I nailed the "more punk than pretty" request.
What do you think?
