Grad girl...

We moved into the tiny tudor at the end of the summer.  Sara finished school last June- as in aged out and D O N E.  It's a new era, she is 22, on to bigger and better things- and it was time for a change...

We took a trip out to the PB Teen store and found the duvet she loved- this is what we are decorating the room around...


The console/dresser that Travis built her is the same deep pink as in the roses.  The walls are White Duck by Sherwin Williams and the interior doors are Iron Ore by Sherwin Williams.  I am thinking of painting the gallery wall in her room a smokey black as well...

Sara's gallery wall...



The sheets, sham and bedskirt...



I am also including touches of Gold and plan on painting a few things gold to put on the gallery wall, like the giant "S" I found in a garage sale years ago.  I also bought her the bunny lamp for her end table...


Once Travis finishes his turnaround schedule at work, he is going to build her a headboard.  I am thinking we will do a painted wood version of the PB Teen one Sara likes...


Sara loves momentos- pictures, announcements, invitations- all of it is part of what gives her room meaning to her.   She treasures memories and I knew that the graduation plaque by Tiny Prints was the perfect addition to her wall.



Personalizing a space is easy to do with pieces that commemorate special events in your life.  For Sara, her graduating was something we were told she would never do.   We knew that with the right environment, encouragement and support she would not only graduate, but she would do so much more.  When Sara looks on her walls and sees her diploma, graduation picture, and this plaque- it is a reminder that we are all capable, and with love we can accomplish great things.
