Rainbow Connection


Berkley, my 4 year old had one wish for her 5th birthday, a rainbow room.

My inner-designer cringed. She wanted butterflies, ladybugs and more. I wanted greys, pinks and pretty and she wanted bold, primary colours and a cliche wall mural.

Of course, I couldn't let her down so I set to work to make her dream come true.

One of the biggest hurdles for me was how to get a presentable rainbow on her wall. I don't like to waste time practicing, so I went for it with finger's crossed and lucky for me it worked!

I simply mixed some colours in a small paint tray and rolled straight on to the wall where I needed her rainbow (in this case, the rainbow acted as an edge between the two themes in her room).

I made her room a "day / night" room. She has a sleeping zone - pink, grey and very classic. She has a play zone - bright, filled with colour and of course, butterflies and ladybugs.
