{traditional w/ a modern twist-Madeleine's Bedroom}

The past few weeks we have been gathering ideas for my daughters bedroom.  Soon she will be 8 going on 13! Pink has played it's course and now moving on...I still love pink but, she's wants nothing to do with it and hasn't for a couple of years.  So, we have been in transition and finally getting around to making it her own style. 
  

Here is a cute little table we found at Ikea that is now her new bedside table.  The lamp base we had {Rachel Ashwell Collection Target} & added a new shade from Ikea...the wicker hamper I found at a thrift store for $4 and now being used to hold her American Girl Doll clothes & their many cute little shoes.
The Siamese Cat picture found at a thrift store for $6.  She love cats/ dogs/peace signs & BLUE.

here is a look at her new dresser from Ikea & a shot of the  BIG BULKY TV...my husband says "the tv works fine NO need for a slim beautiful space saving flat tv" {exaggerated just a bit a on the last part}
I have been thinking about painting her room but, just thinking...it would be a task I'm not sure I'm ready for as we have the rest of the house to contend to as well.  So, for now we are keeping the walls neutral.


her bed was also purchased at a thrift store for $40 and the beautiful duvet from Z Gallerie a couple years ago. 
I have many more ideas for her room so, until then Enjoy your Sunday!
