Recently, Sara had the opportunity to decorate a little girls bedroom. According to Sara:

starting tomorrow i will begin my nine day venture of redesigning miss abigail’s room. i thought i would start off this design week special with the before photos so you all know just where we started. as far as the design i’m going for an overall cleaner and crisper feeling while still keeping true to abbeys tastes and styles. she has picked a robins egg blue-green and a bright red orange for the new room’s color scheme, then we’ll balance it out with some neutrals and bright whites as well.



Sara made a wonderful video to show her progress. If you’re thinking about re-decorating your room, make sure you watch this for inspiration!
