lil petunia's princess room

I am in no way finished--Lil Petunia's room is still a work in progress, but this is what I've accomplished so far.  I don't have the down comforter insert for the duvet cover yet, so just imagine that the bed looks fluffy!  Since I just painted the room, the walls are still bare.  It was not easy to find the right pink for the walls--not too bright or pepto-bismol.  I purchased 4 small cans of paint--I will purchase as many as I have to until I find the right color because it is worth it not to have to paint the entire room over if the color is wrong!  This one is just a muted barely there color that hopefully she won't get sick of very soon.   There will also be a dresser, nightstand, and window treatment.  
I am just happy that we finally decided on the theme for the room.  It is "princess with a (leopard) twist".  The inspiration was a bedroom that I had bookmarked in one of my issues of Southern Accents magazine.  The bedding is actually pink with white embroidered polka dots--see close-up below.  The bedskirt is like a ballerina's tutu--3 layers thick and extra long to the point that we had to put the bed up on risers.

I LOVE it! Where did you get the chandelier? I wish I could paint so I wouldn't have to hire these crazy people to come paint my house.

I always wanted a room like this when I was small. Than I had two boys and STILL couldn't indulge myself. I DID paint the inside of my closet pink, though!
Lucky Lil Petunia!

It's darling! Love the rug - and the theme will be perfect for a room which grows up with Lil Petunia :)
