Office Help

I'll post photos of my painted room and my inspiration rooms tomorrow - but for now:

I am in the process of converting my craft room into my new study for school.  It was a pretty ugly craft room (Give me a break.  I just moved in.) and I'm not able to do everything it needs so it won't be perfect.  It is still going to have odd wooden built-ins (and while I would love to paint them white - and some day probably will) it isn't happening before classes starts.  It will still be off of "the man cave" (a wood paneled room that is currently empty - save for the wet bar - that will someday house Casey's pool table).  It will still have a large dark room off it (and since I only use a digital camera - more like it has a storage room that just happens to have a sink!)

But now, instead of walls painted with multiple shades of white and tan over time, it has pretty pale green walls.  

I am trying to make this room very "me" and do it in shades of pink and green but I'm having trouble finding the right valance.  Any suggestions?

  1. Did you try PBK? They have a cute pink (or green) and white gingham valance that you could buy and then later use in a nursery. They are well made and reasonably priced and perfect for keeping the room very you!

  2. I'm not sure on a valance suggestion but I think you should try to find a great pink or green oversized arm chair to study in!!! I plan on one day having a room surrounded in shelving to display my handbags on and it will also be done in pink & green. It will be "my room"!!! Can't wait to see photos!!!

  5. Hmm - I don't know either about the valance. I can tell you about a lot of great fabric places, but as for pre-made? Anyway, I can't wait to see pics!
