I find it really sweet that my 8 year old daughter is in love with France. She keeps telling me she's going to go to school in Paris one day. Isn't it wonderful to be only 8 and already have grand plans for yourself? ((doing a motherly "all knowing" smile right now)) It'll be interesting to see where life really leads her (maybe Paris - who knows?) - as long as she's happy.
Well last year we kind of "upgraded" her bedroom furniture and look to a big girl room and she picked a Paris theme. Here are some photos that I took last year after it was complete:
As you can see those are Easter egg "clingys" in her window and look at that mound of snow in her garden! Again - last winter was trauma!! Lol You can also see the Paris print above her desk and she has some little eiffel tower doo dads on her desk too.
I didn't find a bedspread I was in love with - but this one fit her color scheme which she wanted pink, black & white. More Paris fun on her walls too.
She has some pretty soft colored stained glass lamps that were in her room when it was still a fairy garden theme, before the paris transformation. The other one is on a dresser not pictured.
And what Parisian room would be complete without a chandelier?
Some other fun accents included these trunks I found (I think at Hobby Lobby).
Well she recently got a stain on her bedspread and it is time to change to something different, but I can't decide what to go with in here?

I love the idea of a black and white toile one (I love toile!!), but then I think it might be a bit too formal for the style of her room?
Or maybe I should go with something more graphic? And maybe go just black and white this time with no pink?

Or maybe I need to scream the theme "Paris" even more? Lol She'd actually probably like that but I think it'd be a bit much for me.
