Aubergine Girl's room

The craziest color ever! Well the darkest, shiniest hue I've ever used I should say.  When my daughter wanted to change up her room she asked for "purple." So vague right.  At first I thought, well okay but you know your ceiling is pink and I'm not changing that. When I started looking at various shades of purple I landed on Farrow and Ball's Brinjal, which is an eggplant or Aubergine. The color went so nicely with pink and I loved it!  On various websites they recommended going with a shiny finish because it brings out the color more and makes it look rich. Well that it does!  I had the color matched  to Benjamin Moore's Advance Interior/Exterior High Gloss Enamel Paint. Let me warn you that even though this is Low VOC paint, it takes at least 2 full weeks of ventilation with fans blowing. I even bought an Ozone maker and ran that twice to get rid of the odor! Anyway the results are magnificent! Take a look.


The Tuft Ari mauve rug was a splurge from Anthropologie as well as the Daisy curtains from there as well. The original rug I had planned on using was cancelled due to stock running out, which is a bummer but I think this rug is great too.


I kept the satin balloon shade over the small window, but hopefully at some point will continue the trim around the window.


Her shelves and bookcase remained the same, but I restyled them with old Baum books and her Frozen castle, which happen to have the same deep eggplant paint theme.


Gold brackets look great against this deep purple because yellow tones are complimentary to purple.


A gift from Santa was this vintage bronze horse hook.


Here's that yellow again, a row of vintage golden books.


Her bedding is from various places. The horse sheets are from Pottery Barn Teen's The Emily and Meritt collection.  The white Duvet and throw blanket are from Amazon.







The inside of her closet was painted a while ago with blush pink and gold polka dots. 


She has an assortment of succulents in her window and they get such great light in here.


The collection of artwork changed a little in this process. She really wanted to show just how much she loves horses, so some pieces were updated to art I found on Etsy.  And as for how I hang a gallery wall I don't do anything special. Just eyeball everything and nail it up. So professional right?





















Well that wraps up this room for the time being! I hope this room continues to provide inspiration and a warm place to be during the upcoming years. 
Onto the next room of the house, the Master Bedroom, which has yet to have much done to it. It desparately needs some wall color too!
