These rooms are magnificently painted and decorated. I am generally not a fan of dark colors on walls, but this an exception. It all blends beautifully. The picture of the closet is so nostalgic. Great job!!

Very cool. I'd love to see more of this house/apartment. Maybe a house tour here on AT?

i was beginning to get soooooooo bored with this year's entires and then... bam! your entry hit me in the face (in a good way!). finally something bold and unique (and that matches the colour palette!!). i especially love the combo of crisp clean lines and the banged up lockers. you've made me want to dig out my paint brush! bravo!!

WOW! Thank you for all the awesome comments and votes.

"Purplecharm" - It is a piece of leftover wallpaper I had, which i then stuck on the wall and added a thick frame to.

This looks like a magazine layout, not a home.

So, so beautiful.
(And what adds even more to this room, is that my baby girl was trying to eat those curtains... LOL!)
Really love the colours.
