Feeling Blue

Emily has been begging and pleading with me to PLEASE paint her room blue. Everyday I hear something about it. She's been stuck on this 'blue streak' (sorry) for quite a while, so I don't think it's just a phase. I have been thinking about a room makeover for her anyway; as my parents move from one house to another we are coming into a few new items - a beautiful white desk, a new princess theme comforter, a white metal headboard, some new art work and lamps.

I thought I would be smart and show her a few google images that came up when searching 'girls room blue'. Of course, this is room she wants:

HA!! How this even came up with my search words, I'm not sure. I pointed out that the walls are NOT blue in this room and she said "I would trade my blue walls for a giant carriage in my room." Of course she would. So would I ;)

This is more along the lines of what I was thinking of:

Her new bedding is quite similar to this quilt, and we now have the white headboard.

What do you think?? When do you allow your children to start making pretty big decisions - like wall colour choices?? (I know, I know, in the grand scheme of things a gallon of paint is not REALLY that big of a decision. But to a 4 year old, it's pretty huge :)

Should I go for it and re-paint?? Jacob's room is soon getting a major over-haul as well. And the best part of his new room will be a fully wired, fully working one of these: (another treasure from my parent's old house)
I'm so excited :)

If you don't mind buying paint, I'd say go for it, and have fun! I'm sure it will look lovely!

I'ld say paint it blue - you can always repaint :)

I love that blue colour! It's really pretty and feminine.
If you were going to re-paint anyway, and if it matches the bedding you already have, then go for it!

If you like painting, then I'd go for it. If you think she might change her mind again and dislike painting, maybe paint the walls cream or grey and stop by Michaels for some paint-able canvases and picture frames, etc and let her pick out blue craft paint and let her paint away. Some blue throw pillows, baskets, and any other accessories and you are all set. Just a thought.
