There are certain paint colors that you just can’t unsee. They’re the shades that deter even the most open-minded house hunter, call for wearing sunglasses indoors, and incite homeowners to use a grenade when remodeling (well, they wish, anyway). This hyper-electric blue, which coated the office in blogger Heather’s newly purchased house, is one of those shades.

But Heather, who blogs at The Heathered Nest, saw past the Smurf-like hue and envisioned a much lovelier space  especially as a bedroom for her young daughter.

Armed with an understated but glamorous damask wallpaper, she covered the offending blue, and traded its matching carpeting for inviting birch hardwoods. Shabby chic touches, like a chandelier, whitewashed furniture, and pink curtains make the room peaceful and feminine — quite the opposite of what it was before.

Take a look around:
