I used the bold colors of the curtain panels as the base for the room, trying to pick up the blues and yellows in the pillows and other accessories.
I love mixing patterns in a room. The suzani print in the curtains with the chevron in the rug make and the pop of yellow floral in the pillows makes for a happy combination.

The above photo is the wall directly across from the couch (as you may have noticed from the reflection in the mirror) and was the last area I completed. It's kind of an odd space with the built-in plate shelving there but I really like how it turned out. Sweet and simple.
After looking at some of these photos it really seems like I have a thing for horses - doesn't it??
|Layla loves to sit in the chair with a stack of books and "read".|
Above is the reason for the kid's library part of the room.
I remember when we first looked at this house this custom built plate shelving unit was something I assumed we would get rid of eventually because I couldn't imagine what purpose it would serve. I considered lining it with frames but knew all too well that picture frames and toddlers don't mix.
At some point after we moved in I realized Layla had a ton of books that we didn't have space for in her new room and discovered that most of them were the perfect size to fit in the plate nook.
Once I have Layla and Hadley's new table set up I'll take some better photos of the library and craft area.
