Fine Art Friday - Pink Whimsy

When I decorated my daughter's nursery I picked a lovely pale pistachio for her walls, with lavendar details and frog prince accents.  She's turning five this month and is questioning my taste.  Here's a recent conversation.

Daughter: When I was a baby, I couldn't talk?
Me: Right
Daughter: So, you couldn't ask me what color I wanted my room to be?
Me: Right
Daughter: So, you just painted it your favorite color?
Me: Right
Daughter: But, I can talk now.  My favorite color is pink.

I'm fine with pink, pink can be very pretty but I don't want her room to be PINK.  So I'm trying to put together a mood board to really wrap our heads around the new direction for her room.  Perhaps you underestimated the scale of this project? ;)

I found a beautiful hand sewn pink and white quilt at the flea market the other day and she's over the moon, snuggled under it every night since.  I've decided on two pale pink walls and two off white walls to make it a little less PINK.  This Fine Art Friday I'm looking for art to decorate her walls - hope you don't mind this little trip to the realm of whimsy!

That conversation made me laugh! It's good that she knows what she wants. Great artwork finds.

Beautiful choices. I especially love the conversation between you and your daughter. I have definitely had similar ones with my 4 year old son :)

I would love to see pictures when her room is finished!!
