lydia's window treatment details

Lydia's room is, by far, the happiest in our whole house and, even though I feel a little bit guilyy that I focus so much on her room when Luca still doesn't technically have fully complete quarters of his own, I love that every time I post a shot of her sweet little space or her gorgeous new (vintage) bed that I get a ton of love from you guys!  Every time I post a picture, in fact, the most-asked questions I get are about her curtain panels (with the antique wooden mermaid coming in a close second), so I thought I'd do a blog post with all the details right here for anyone that was interested!  

Curtain Fabric.  Did I make her curtains myself? As much as I would love to take credit for them, the answer is no.  They are custom made, double-lined panels that another designer friend made and gave me as a gift when I was pregnant with Lydia. The fabric is Warsaw Linen in flax with a four inch border on the inside of each panel in coral, all from Gray Line Linen in New York.  I cannot say enough about this company.  The price and color selection is amazing and the customer service cannot be beat; I ordered my fabric at 6 in the evening on a Friday and it was on my porch Monday morning!  The linen is gorgeous and on the heavier side but I still ended up having a double liner sewn in just to give it that extra weight and oomph.  They hang so beautifully!

Curtain rods + finials.  I like to splurge on my curtains and scrimp on my hardware; the rods are actually 1.5 inch unfinished wooden dowel rods from Lowe's that I had cut there and then painted to match her crib (the paint color is Ralph Lauren Champagne Toast).  The finials are Allen and Roth, also from Lowe's, that I painted and screwed into the ends.  I wrote a post all about it here.

Lamp.  I found this gourd lamp at Hobby Lobby when I was pregnant with Lydia, but it had a dark brown wooden base, so I used a gold leaf pen and painted over it!

Wall + ceiling color.  The walls are Benjamin Moore white and the ceiling is Benjamin Moore Teacup Rose.  It's the perfect way to brighten up an all-white room and the ceiling makes the whole room glow at night when the lamp is on - so, so cozy!

Striped pillows.  The coral and pink striped pillows were also custom made; the fabric is actually a discontinued P. Kaufman stripe that I found in a local fabric shop years ago.  I haven't been able to find it online since!

This is such a lovely room for your little princess, Kelly! I love the soft pink touches and the idea to paint the ceiling is genius! xo, Eva

Thank you so much, Eva! That means so much, coming from you! The painted ceiling was definitely a risk but it turned out to be one of my favorite parts of the room! xx

I absolutely love the color of Lydia’s ceiling! Would you mind sharing if you used the paint at 100% or if you cut it at all to be less saturdated? Also, would you say Lydia’s room gets a lot of natural light? Thanks!

Hi, Lily! Sorry for the delayed response! Her ceiling is cut to 50% saturation. And she gets a ton of light from first thing in the morning until about lunch time. Hope this helps you!

Do you know if Ralph Lauren paints are discontinued? Can't seem to find any. Is there a similar light gold color you could recommend? Thanks!

Stephanie - I haven't seen any RL paint since Home Depot quit carrying it, unfortunately! I used Modern Masters Metallics paint in a brass finish when I repainted this crib for my son (it's darker but the quality of the paint is gorgeous and I bet they have a similar champagne color!) xx
