Rapunzel Bedroom

Months before we moved in whenever I asked my little one what kind of bedroom she would like to have in our new place, her answer was Rapunzel room. I associated the room with purple color right away, the color theme of disney rapunzel. Well I was relieved she did not said pink or blue. I’m personally not a big fan of pink room and we had had blue room and I had enough of it. Purple sounds fun, soft, lavender, calm.. like it.

Then next question is what does Rapunzel room should have beside purple? Rapunzel picture? No.. the guy and the horse? of course no. I don’t want the room being overdecorated with Rapunzel knick knack that won’t last long. Something with purple and simple and clean and elegant and can be kept for years to come (probably until her middle). Then she said ” mama I want floating lights in my rapunzel room”. My first thought was oh no, I don’t wanna put lantern things on the ceiling.  Hmm what about painting something on the wall that mimics the floating lights.

 

Do you think those gold circles close enough to floating lights ? 🙂

I used my husband’s shoe polish sponge (I don’t think he will realized it until he read this post) and leftover gold paint which I used in guest bedroom makeover in our old place. Unexpectedly the sponge leave the texture which I think make the gold stamps look unique and better.

And the best part is my daughter loves the room. Hope this inspire you!

Purple Peonies Cake

Hi! been quite some time since my last post.

This is cake I made last week for someone’s 60th birthday. I wasn’t sure what would be the best color for 60th birthday, after mixing red, pink, orange, and blue finally I got this color and love it. These peonies were the biggest buttercream flower I’ve ever made, I was afraid they would not hold their shapes after transporting.. fortunately all come out great and the customer was happy with it.
