I’ve been working on the girls’ bedroom. I thought it would be fun to change things up a bit. It’s nice to have options. As a reminder, here is what it looked like last time.
I’m working on redoing this room and adding more fun. Evie wanted something with more color, and boy does this have color.
Now what I love about this bedding is the large size scale of the pattern. It doesn’t repeat at all. It looks like someone took watercolors and painted the fabric directly. I love the way the duvets look like paintings.
The colors feel so free and crisp.
See how fresh they look?
I’m not done in here. I have new lavender benches coming for each bed, so I’ll be rotating the burlap ottomans out. I don’t think they really go with the current look. I have so many ideas swirling in my head.
Below I did something fun, combining the old look with the new. See how I add the gingham back on the beds? Which do you prefer?
These products have been discontinued, so I don’t have links any more.

What a breath of fresh air these watercolor bed spreads bring to this already pretty and very functional bedroom. Love them!
I love the gingham matched with the water color duvets. Soft and pretty.
Linda Southworth says
The splash of color is so happy and I do love the gingham complementing the duvets. Quite nice!

So beautiful. Love the color combination — blue and pink — feminine yet sophisticated. Jo @ Let’s Face the Music

Love the lavender gingham with the new watercolor floral! It added just the right punch! Can’t wait to see what else you are planning!
I like the last pic with the purple gingham. Just curious Anita, do you have triplets? Do they live decorating as much as you? Love this blog!!!!
Mary Bollinger says
I Iove the new look, but do add the gingham! It just adds more color and brings out the
duvet colors even more. Love it!!!!
Carol (in Delaware!) says
The gingham is my favorite. I still miss the little dresses that used to hang above the beds!
Debbie Reynolds says
I like the gingham. The bedding is beautiful!
Ginger Valdes says
I really like the mix of the lavender checks and the watercolor. Still has that Country French vibe!
Pat F. says
Very pretty, Anita.
So soft and dreamy, I want to sleep there!!!
I love everything you’ve put together. The girls would be happy with any of them. My only concern is some of the pillows are a bit pricey, for me any way.
LOVE the combination with the gingham. The addition makes it look very high end and the pattern on pattern gives it a great designer vibe. What little girl wouldn’t love snuggling in these beds while sharing secrets with the girls snuggling in the other beds! Wonderfully girly! Great job!!!
Watercolor bedding – so fresh – and reminds me spring is on the way!!
Wanda Cooper says
I love the gingham added back in! It definitely looks more “Frenchy” that way. I also miss the little dresses, but I understand how as the girls get older, they want a more sophisticated look. You do what you gotta do, right?
Patty Soriano says
A gorgeous print! Can’t wait to see the lavender benches too! Appreciate the extra Christmas inspiration as well!
I love the gingham. This is such a sweet room for girls. Good job !
Linda Charlton says
I like the last photo with the floral and gingham. So fun.
Sharon B. says
These watercolor duvets are gorgeous Anita! The colors and the print are beautiful. And I love how the gingham looks with them. Can’t wait to see the room with the lavender benches as well.
Melanie Farrar Clark Eads says
I love the color you added and the lavender benches will just make it.
Beautiful bedding, Anita! Love the watercolor look, and the soft colors are very relaxing.
I prefer the blue gingham. The pink is soft and pretty. However, for my personal taste, I think the pink is a bit too pale for the brighter colors on the duvets. The watercolor duvets do give the room a totally different feel to the room. It’s a nice alternative look.
Beth Wilson says
I definitely think the gingham is needed to tie this room in with the rest of the house. The watercolor print is beautiful, but it has a totally modern feel in my opinion.
Brenda Wilson says
Those are so pretty – I like the gingham with them. Can’t wait to see the lavendar benches!!
Anne Nicosia says
So tired of white, love the gingham.
Liz Teerlink says
Love the floral with the gingham. It looks so fresh and clean. It also adds more interest to a neutral room.
I do a little bit of watercolor so this is my absolute favorite. Love the addition of the lavender gingham. Wish I was a little girl again!!
Lou Ann M says
I love the watercolor bedding so very much!! I want to try some this spring on my own bed to brighten it up! And to pair it with your gingham is so delightful! Hope I have luck mixing and matching like you did!
Gloria Richards says
Perfect colors for a girls’ room bright and cheerful .
What I also like is that the room fits three girls of any age as they grow! Very nice. <3
Gloria Richards says
Absolutely perfect for a girl’s room so pretty, light hearted an gay. What I especially like is that the room is one three girls of different ages can grow up in. Very nice <3
Very pretty bedding, beautiful colors, and I do like the gingham.
It’s ALL beautiful!
love the watercolor and gingham together! this is such a happy looking room. i just know i am going to win that great book…lol!
So pretty Anita, and yes I love the gingham back in there. It’s just what it needed. Can’t wait to see the benches. I’d like to see some color above the beds too.
I love the watercolor with the gingham. The reason I love the watercolor is for the exact reason you stated, there is no repeat! I’ve been looking for something similar because I like the idea that every one is unique depending on where the fabric is cut. I love the lavender accent and can’t wait to see the benches.
Ann Reynolds says
Love looking at something not red and green. Adding the gingham made the duvet colors pop!
Kris Beck says
I love the new look. I think by adding the gingham back in it is like the icing on the cake. So sweet and cute.
Charlene Carr says
Beautiful bedding choices Anita! The watercolor bedding brings soft and vibrant colors to the girls bedroom and allows so many options for other enhancements as well. Looking forward to seeing your next post. I just wanted to say how much I enjoy your book French Accents. It sits on the table next to my arm chair. I have learned so much from it and the photography is beautiful… Thank you so much!
Shari Duncan says
I love the gingham with the water color, perfect gingham color! Can’t wait to see it with the benches!!
Tonya Schoepf says
Love the gingham pattern with the floral, really brings the blue flowers out. Very happy and fresh.
Meg Hobbes says
I like the gingham with the watercolor!
Naomi S. says
What a light and airy feel to the new bedding. I actually prefer it with the gingham sheets. Wondering whether you will change the wall color. Maybe it’s just the photos but I can’t really tell the actual color. Whatever it is seems a little drab with the new bedding look. I know painting is a bigger job than just changing the linens, so you might not be up to that right now.
How do the girls like the change?
Mary Butris says
Love the watercolor bedding .. I’d forego the gingham. I love that you are farmhouse doesn’t have to be hokey..rough casual could try .. bedlinens have always been my weakness and believe they can transform a room!! Love the look! Thanks for sharing !!
Love the gingham with the watercolor flowers. Gorgeous is an understatement for how this room looks. STUNNING indeed!
The bedding is really pretty and I liked the way you still use the gingham. I bet your girls like it also.
Those colors are so refreshing. I like every option you attempted. It’s quite lovely.
MARY-ANN (FROM CANADA!) says
Anita, you have done such a lovely job with the bedroom for the girls! I love how you have put the gingham with the watercolor duvet. It’s so pretty! I love gingham — so country! Our kitchen and dining room are done in blue gingham with white wainscotting! I just love “country”!
Have a great day!
As I write, we have gale force winds, snow and huge waves pounding our shoreline. Winter has finally arrived here! We had one of the mildest Novembers on record! It was great not having any snow until now! It is finally feeling like Christmas here!
Nicki Bruleigh says
The ‘before’ picture of the bedroom is why i visited and kept the site in my favorites! I just remembered when i saw it that that was my first blog of yours that i read……… so cute!!
Marty K says
Very pretty! I also like the gingham with the bedding.
Elizabeth Roderick says
The watercolor bedding is beautiful and the gingham makes it happy! Can’t wait to see the benches.
Love the gingham – makes you just wanna curl up in bed!!! However, I still miss those cute little dresses.
Oh I added them back Erika! Sorry they aren’t in this post.
Just love the watercolor impression. Beautiful room!
Well, I guess it’s nearly unanimous-the gingham is a real winner! I’ve always loved mixing patterns. It gives such a finished look. As a mother of two boys, I think having daughters must be a great treat when it comes to decorating rooms. I can’t wait to see them with your finishing touches.
