Favorite Room Feature: Conspicuous Style

Today, I have the lovely Stacy from Conspicuous Style that is showcasing her darling daughter's darling space. So much darling happening here you will not even believe it. Before we get to that, remember this space that has been featured before on S+S:
Yep. That is my girl Stacy's design and actual home. I told you! The girl has got the moves. In Design World that is. She might also have the moves like Jagger. I am not quite sure. What I am sure of, is Stacy's unbelievable talent and timeless spaces. I cannot wait for her to share her daughter's special space with you. Go Stacy!


Hello Sadie & Stella readers! I am Stacy from Conspicuous Style, and I am so happy to be a part of this Favorite Room Feature series.  It's a true honor being here, and I want to thank Lindsay so much for asking me.


Today I want to show you my seven year old daughter's room.  When we first moved into this house 9 years ago, we were trying for a baby. I painted the yellow stripes, not knowing if we'd have a boy or a girl. After finding out we were in fact expecting a girl, I added the blue flower border.  It was made out of  pre-cut wood flower shapes from Michael's that I put up with glue dots.  I remember painting all of those flowers -- about 200 of them -- with my then 4 year old son to get ready for out baby girl.  I then painted the vines in between to connect them.  And I absolutely loved this room: 
But when my little princess was 5, like so many girls her age, she absolutely had to have a pink room. I was against it, but wanted to give her what she wanted.  So we went through lots of changes and stages trying to get it right.


I had the walls hot pink and green at one point:


And striped at another (and the bed moved to several different locations):
And different stripes at another (yes, if you haven't figured it out already, I'm crazy, and will paint over and over until I get it just right):
But finally ended up at the palest blue:
    I also scored the find of a lifetime at our "Swap Shop" at the dump, getting this desk for free:
And changing the hardware and painting it hot pink:
  I also made this bed canopy out of two 84" panels from Bed Bath & Beyond. It is simply two panels sewn back to back and put up with thumbtacks (yes, you heard me right!):
I made the lamp by detaching the tops of these flowers from their stems and gluing them onto the shade:
And I added some more flowers to the chandelier:
And here it is, the cheeriest and most certainly the girliest room in our house:
  I still need to cover the seat to her desk chair, which I had forgotten about but noticed in this photo!


Thank you SO much again for having me here today,
Stacy

  12. Stacy is amazingly talented! This has got to be the cutest little girls room ever. I love it all. LOVE the hot pink desk. I am wishing she was nearby: we are selling our house and I am "staging" 2 rooms as bedrooms that were used for different purposes for us. LOTS of inspiration here!!!

  16. Oh, I just love Stacy! She is so talented and the best part about this post is how she shows that you can take essentially the same pieces in a room and give them an entirely new look by changing out fabrics and painting. In every single stage the room looked so beautiful including this latest look with the fun pops of color and the "big girl" style! :-)

  17. I just love Stacy's house and especially how she managed to keep the same window coverings and still go through several design changes and they all worked. LOVE.
