In a new Instagram Reel, Josie showed off a floral accent wall she added to her daughters’ bedroom. She says it was “exactly what I was hoping for.”

In her caption, she explained, “I’ve been trying to find a cute way to decorate the girls room but haven’t been able to find anything like what I was envisioning.”

She was able to get some help from a friend, as well as her brother, Trace. She says she’s “so happy with the way it tuned out 🤩”

Bringing Up Bates fans question her design choices.

While Josie Balka is thrilled about the accent wall, fans aren’t loving it. They think it’s bland or boring. Many of them wish she would have painted the flowers to brighten things up.

In one comment, a fan wrote, “The flowers look unfinished, would look so nice with a little color. I guess I don’t understand the no color for kids. So boring.”

Josie Balka shuts down the accusations.

In response to the negative comment, Josie Balka says:

“haha thank you. The girls have tons of colorful toys and things that they have gotten to pick out. They’re a little too young to choose how their room is decorated and also could care less right now. we went with something very simple and neutral so that when they are a little older they can choose what they want and it’s easy for us to change color. if they want the florals to be pink/purple etc then we can easily paint them.”

Then, Josie adds, “Also – their life is far from boring, just ask Willow!” The mom to two added a winking face to her comment.


Other fans in Josie’s comments section, however, do understand the design choice. They think it’s great that the Balkas can paint the flowers to fit the girls’ styles as they get older.

  1. It is nobody business how anyone decorate their house or children’s room. So keep your opinion to your self. It is because of of someone sticking their nose where it does not belong. Others or missing seeing a great family. You decorate your house the way you want and don’t worry about other.

  2. Personally, I love the simplistic nature of it – very serene and relaxing. Add bright color later if they want. I’m quite impressed with how Josie has matured and come into her own style. She always was one of my favorite Bates girls. Totally loving how she’s creating a fashion style, too.
