Miss C declared several months ago that she wanted her room redone in a pink leopard theme. She is, after all, at that trend spotting age of 6 where Disney Princess, Kidz Bop, and Bratz collide.
Her comforter set is a sweet Waverly paper dolls and floral theme I found at Linens N Things a couple of years ago. The color scheme is mainly pink and green and the sheets a sweet floral pattern, which I suppose does sound rather Victorian and prudish when compared to exotic KAPOW pink leopard. Rowrrrrr.
Miss C spotted a cute pink leopard comforter set in the Company Kid’s catalog, but I’ve been searching on Ebay as it’s a veritable mecca for any decor item one could imagine. Pink John Deere tractor Diaper Genie cover? Ebay’s got it. Nascar camo toaster oven cozy? Ebay’s got it.
Any way, I’m possibly up for trying a pink leopard comforter or duvet cover provided everything else is a pale solid pink. I could also live with a pink leopard accent pillow as long as it does it talk or growl or make any kind of sound effects.
Besides, if you go too far with the pink leopard accessories you get disturbing wall artwork like this:
And I’ll be hanging that on her wall over my draped in a Waverly floral sheet body.
Sigh…kiddos grow up too fast! I can’t even imagine my little one asking for pink leopard in 4 short years.

Before I read the whole post I thought that was what she picked out for the walls and I was a little afraid. LOL

LOL….I got so many mixed requests from my daughter on her room a few years ago…it was hard to find something we could both live with and be happy about! Good luck!
What you’re not a pink leopard fan…lol! I can’t believe how trendy our kids are. My kids have more style then me…so sad…lol!

And is it just me or is the lipstick thing very phallic.
Come on…you know you want to agree with me.
We did a blue leopard theme, blue silky comforter with stripped sheets and leopard pillows but I kept the “leopard” down to a minimum. Luckily the phase didn’t last long. Good luck on yours!

I agree on the lipstick thing. Ugh.
Pink leopard. Wow. I think you’ve got this right though – go for pink and choose a few pink leopard things you can switch out without losing too much money, like the comforter, when she moves into her black walls and incense phase.
(Ha – I tease you. Sorta.)

My 13 year old daughter just asked for zebra striped sheets for Christmas. This must be the Year of the Jungle.
Bluegrass Mamas last blog post..Less Than Fond Memories
Oh, I can SO relate! My daughter decided her (*beautiful*) Pottery Barn Kids bedding was too babyish and lame, so the new theme is zebra print and hot pink. I remember having a Holly Hobbie bedroom until I was a teenager! 🙂
And yes, I see the lipstick as you do and it should probably not go in a G-rated room, LOL!

Kids are more trendy these days, We can’t say no to their taste.
Pink leopard definitely a good one.
My eight year old daughter just loves anything leopard or tiger. She keeps seeing it in the stores. Remember, whatever they see, they want, so it is not really a true, free choice. If the marketing denizens wanted to push polka dots and butterflies, then that is what our children would be asking for.

My daughter keeps saying she want to “re-do” her room. But I’ve seen her taste in clothes so I am afraid of what we would end up with.
I keep ignoring her requests. Not sure how long I can get away with that though…

Haha that’s sassy! I wonder if I could get one for my room as well…

We don’t have girls, just two boys, my family is ALL boys so this is a completely different world my wife and I find ourselves longing for at times. Great post!
It is so hard when they grow up and get their own minds, isn’t it? My son now has some fascination with Pokemon and picked Pokemon & Star Wars books for the book fair choices. Neither of these have we ever watched or seen 🙂

I am not looking forward to that stage with my little one. I think it’s coming soon though!
Even at 27 , I have rows with my mom over the colour of my bedspread or what I put up on the wall. So I guess, its one of those never ending love-hate-love relationship things.
Recently my daughter wanted a bedroom makeover however, I am in a fortunate position because I work for a bedding companyht it would not cost much. Anyway we planned the room together choosing of course all the girly pink covers, went to my boss to order and wow, what a shock I got when I saw the price..
I’ve read several good stuff here. Certainly price bookmarking for revisiting.
I wonder how a lot attempt you place to make one of these wonderful
