Bedroom for a budding artist

I'm still not sure about the pink. I changed the top paint color in Portia's room three times now. And I'm still not sure about the pink. Portia says she likes it so I'll let it be for now.

Because there wasn't enough room for a bedside table, we used two shelves on both walls of the bed where Portia keeps a water bottle, books, and any other trinkets she can't live without for the night.

The real color issue has to do with this peapod green chalkboard paint we used inside the panels on the bottom of the walls. I love the idea that every picture Portia draws with the chalk is a framed piece of artwork.

But it's the color that I can't find the match to. At first, we tried to match the chalkboard paint, but it was like a cave--so dark! And the color didn't match quite right.

The shelf along the ceiling was here when we moved in. As you can see, I'm not quite sure what to put up there. I really need help, but hope inspiration will come with time. Maybe the right top color inspiration will come as well. I was wondering about a light version of the dark green. But I hate to start all over. Sigh. This will do for now.

I love the chalkboard paint, what a great idea for a kid's room!

That chalkboard paint is so cool! I like the colors together. What if you put a simple wall paper up on the wall that has the high shelf to tie thing all together? I have no idea what I'm talking about, but I thought I'd throw the idea out there!

Looks great! Anna has been begging for a pink room for years. Haha! I think the colors go together just fine. Can't wait to see it in person!
