The colour inspiration for my client’s almost-teen-girl bedroom makeover came from this stunning floral wall mural. Here are the before and after photos of the rest of this coordinated bedroom design that will grow beautifully with this young lady.

Magical floral wall mural inspired bedroom
Today I’m showing Bella’s room first. The colour scheme for this room was inspired by this fabulous mural (the inspiration board with links is at the bottom of the post).
Here’s the before:
Here’s the after:
You can see that I coordinated everything in the room to match the wallpaper. The area rug mirrors the colours in the paper, and then there’s the yellow beige drapes, green duvet cover and pink velvet chair and shams.
Notice how the wall colour matches the mural absolutely perfect.
Here’s how we did it.
Before the room became next-level fabulous, it had a makeover that happened with the renovation 5 years ago. Then the room became turquoise.
When I was a teenager, I installed wallpaper on one wall in my bedroom and for years it bothered me that I painted the rest of the room white when only the flowers inside the paper were actually white. Laying in bed, I stared at that wallpaper and always thought the rest of the room should have been the background of the paper.
Anyway, I digress, the ONLY way to match it perfectly is with white paper as the background (to make sure the old colour doesn’t influence the new one) and then I just went through the pale neutrals, by undertone in the Killam Colour System® eliminated the ones that didn’t match to end up with this one that looked the best, BM Horizon.
Here’s the other side of the room before:
Ahem, check out the corner of the room on the right (below). You can’t see where the wallpaper ends and the paint colour starts.
As it should be.
When you match it this expertly, it looks like it’s been painted directly on the wall.
Bella’s choice of this larger-than-life floral wallpaper mirrors her love of nature and the outdoors. She’s a wild child, free spirit, artist, and animal lover.
Bella started riding in June 2020, she rides twice a week. Here she is on Tutu (left) and Bruce (right):
Decorating your child’s room is important because it’s their personal space, while the rest of the rooms in the house are yours.

We chose everything for this room (except the drapes, they were custom) using mood boards which I will teach you how to create in this course. Notice how all the colours in this bedroom work beautifully together. A big piece of shopping online successfully is about knowing how to search for what you’re looking for.
I was once in a consultation looking for blue throw pillows. Nothing I searched made my client happy until I finally realized she was wearing a cornflower blue sweater.
I searched cornflower blue throw pillow and BAM, now she was happy!
Wallpaper has come a long way baby! I’m working on another room right now using a super fun mural with my nephew Markus! It’s a great starting point for decorating any bedroom.
