Chillin' in Julia's Room

February 25, 2013

I've mentioned before that Julia's room is my favorite room in the house. It's the loveliest shade of pink. Everyone should get to have a pink room, WHETHER THEY WANT IT OR NOT. Actually, I also really love our yellow room. The master bedroom is not painted and I really really want to rectify this. I wanted a smoky lavender grey and Andrew choked with laughter. I FAIL TO SEE WHY THAT WAS SO FUNNY. Now I'm thinking a light tealy blue maybe. And then laziness speaks to me and I think I will embrace the greige in there in a big way. Neutral bedding, neutral walls, it will be a sea of tranquility.



In the meantime, I'll just keep hanging out in Julia's room. At some point, she might not appreciate me using her room as my crash pad. I guess when that happens, I might have to paint my own bedroom smoky grey lavender.

This is our Strawberry Fairy. I'm obsessed with her cotton candy pink hair. Speaking of cotton candy pink hair, remember my friend Aadip, maybe possibly the Worst Cook in America, but we don't know yet? Well his wife is the cutest girl ever, and she's blonde and has at times, delightfully chosen to make parts of her hair pink, and she's in a pink phase right now. And she's going to take pix the next time she pinkifies herself and is going to send them to me!

And then I'm putting her on Pink Sparkle Fun!

I told her that I would give just about anything to be able to have pink hair.

Its been grey, grey, nothing but grey lately. Do you spell grey or gray? I think grey is...greyer.

What else? This is a day of random, in case you can't tell. Julia's been letting me photograph her again, she went through a several-months long phase of running the other way whenever I had the camera out. But now she seems keen on having me take pix of her again. I wonder how long that will last?


Speaking of pink stuff and Pink Sparkle Fun, I really, really, REALLY want to go with Julia to Hello Kitty Land in Japan. I wonder how much it costs. I wonder if there's a tour one can sign up for. The Hello Kitty tour of Japan? And I wonder how foolhardy it would be to ever attempt going in the springtime to see the cherry blossoms, along with the other millions of people who want to do the same exact thing.

I have a lot of deep thoughts.

  2. Us Pink Girls really need to stick together, Melissa! I love pink with a passion. I also love a kind of Celadon shade which might be really nice for your bedroom walls. As I grow older (cough, cough, I loathe writing that) I am embracing my Pink Love more openly. Yellow's pretty cool too, as my kids keep reminding me. If you like pink and yellow (of course you do!) go take a peek at my latest post.

    Love,

    Steph

    1. I have indeed considered a sort of celadon, such a nice calming color I think :) - I will of course be over post haste to see your latest creations and posts, they are always such bright spots in my week!

    1. Oh thank you!!!!!!!!! That really makes my day. I so rarely see it, I think she looks so much like Andrew, but I do see myself (or my brother, I can never decide) in her when she smiles. Our hair color is so different, people rarely think we favor each other, but I like to think I'm in there somewhere. :)

  4. Julia's room is beautiful! I love that she has her reading nood already.

    I watched Worst Cook of America just because of your friend! It was a very funny show! I wonder now if your friend will win... he performed rather well (except for the onion blunder LOL but who am I to criticize, I can't cook either!).

    I totally understand you wanting to go to Hello Kitty Land .... I wanna go to Sylvanian Families Land (in Japan too of course)! Let's hope we both get our wish come true one day!

    1. you have a jump on me, I still haven't seen the episode yet! we don't have cable so we've been searching all over online trying to find a place to watch it after it aired, and we finally did, so tonight's the night, so so excited.

      Sylvanian Families Land??? Sign me up, I wanna go there too!

  6. Miss C. is already planning what her room with Little Miss C. will look like. Pink, of course! Julia's room is so sweet - the perfect little girl's room. I especially like the stars!

    1. I love those stars too! got them from a vintage christmas online site and I've tried to go back and find that shop and I can't, so bummed.

  7. I love that pillow in the last picture!

    If you don't get your moky lavender grey, I suggest a sage green. Andrew may not laugh at that.

    1. Ah the pillow! That was a big splurge but we will have it FOREVER. I'll move it someplace else if Julia ever tires of it. It's from a textile designer named John Robshaw, he has the best online site, and I saw that pillow in a Domino magazine many years ago, and vowed I would not rest until I got it for my daughter's room....

      Here's what he'll say: 'How about the color we already have?' I still don't see what's so funny about smoky greyish lavender, it's a very serious color. SO SAYS I. :)

    2. I agree with the pillow love! Love, love, love it.

  8. What a lovely room, Julia is lucky to have a mum who has made things so lovely for her :)

    My bedroom is painted "wheatgrass & mushrooms" or something. But what I really want is "elephants breath" by Farrow & Ball. The world of paints is a big one!

    1. Hamilton, I'm obsessed with Farrow & Ball. And I LOVE the names of their paints! They used to have a color called "Dead Salmon". So great! It was actually a very lovely color.

      Delete
    2. Yes! Haha there was a funny viral video about dead salmon and elephants breath once but it seems to have disappeared.

      Btw I answered your question regarding what camera I use! Made me chuckle :) x

  10. Julia's room looks like the perfect place to find tranquility amidst the gray of winter... and is it grey or gray... I think it can be either... I think about painting things around here all the time. And then I'm too tired to do anything, let alone paint.

    1. I think about so many things I'd like do, and I'd say about .5% of them ever get done :)

  11. Awesome, awesome post. Julia's room looks so wonderful. I would love to go to Hello Kitty Land. Maybe we should start saving, then meet up with you. ;o)
