A Little Girl’s Dream Bedroom: Pink and Turquoise Meet Poised Taupe

Pretty Little Girl Rooms

When Sherwin Williams came out with their 2017 Color of the Year Poised Taupe I was so excited to use it. A rich taupe with undertones of purple and warm brown.  A cozy grown up color, right?   Well, just wait second…

When my neighbors Dirk and Renee came to me asking for help making their daughter Harper’s bedroom a fun and girly place to sleep and play I jumped at the challenge to make Poised Taupe work for a little girls room. The timing couldn’t have been more perfect since Santa had just dropped a big sleigh load of gifts off for this little princess and storage space was at a premium. Not only did we need a cozy sleeping area, we needed designated spaces for this avid book lover and budding artist.


Sherwin Williams Color of the Year

After the walls were painted we found these adorable pink kitty decals from Urban Walls. The entire application process took me three hours. It would have taken a lot less but this room had several turns, angles and corners which made it a bit tricky.  Coral, mint green and turquoise graphic floral bedding from Target,  2 seafoam green faux fur Euro and a gold sequined pillow from HomeGoods and gold sequined owl accent pillow  dresses up Harper’s crib turned big girl bed.


A white faux sheepskin shag rug, turquoise ceramic table lamp, polka dotted storage boxes and a sweet turquoise tea tray from Homegoods sits atop a Moroccan gold pouf.  We had one of Renee’s family chairs recovered in a raspberry Bacati ikat fabric for the sitting area near the window.


Storing Toys in Style

Now if you you have a daughter, niece, or granddaughter you know there’s not a lot of letting go when it come to stuff. We headed to HomeGoods for some stacking storage boxes to hold all the little goodies that every 5 year old cherishes.

White pottery barn sailcloth drapes get a turquoise gross grain ribbon band to tie in color and draw your eyes up to the ombre paper globes and monogram H. Shop more paintable monogram letters here.


A play fort tent

A turquoise ombre hanging play tent fills the corner and is the perfect hiding and play spot for Harper, all her dolls and her sweet kitty Bailey.


Kids gallery Wall Ideas

We created a gallery wall with Harper’s baby picture center stage in a white frame. Inspirational art, more storage boxes, and turquoise and gold desk lamp all from HomeGoods in pink white and turquoise complete the dresser area. We changed out the plain white dresser knobs with silver, pink and turquoise chevron knobs.

Clear stacking boxes with turquoise lids store crayons, scissors, markers and other craft items all neat.

One of the closet doors gets a fresh coat of chalkboard paint and becomes a larger than life canvas for Harpers’ artistic creations. Not so sure you want to paint a chalkboard. Shop here for removable large chalkboard wall decals.


A rolling turquoise powder coated shelving unit from HomeGoods houses all the art supplies and storage boxes neat and tidy.

Pairing the Poised taupe with pink, turquoise and white turned out to be a success! This color can take Harper well into her teen years. It was a unlikely pairing but gave this larger sized room a sense of coziness and sophistication. How will you use Poised Taupe in your painting projects this year?

Happy Creating!

      Hi Bethany. This was a few years ago. I’m not sure if Target has discontinued it. Have you tried googling floral bedding? You may find something similar
