Carly is now a teenager and wanted to transform her “kiddie -style” bedroom into a more age appropriate space. She loves the beach and wanted a space where her friends could relax and hang out with her. Check out the before shots below….and scroll down for the afters!
Teenage beach bliss! The capiz shell hanging pendant is the showstopper in this space. I LOVE it! The walls are painted in a soft BM Woodlawn blue. We kept the existing bed frame, but added a custom tufted headboard in a graphic pattern. The love seat, pulls out to accommodate friends for sleepovers and the ottoman flips up to hide a laptop, homework and all that fun stuff you want to hide from your parents
A sawhorse table (Ikea) is tucked under the window with a contemporary ghost chair in front.
I re-located the existing dresser to the window niche area for a perfect TV viewing apot and changed out the wood knobs to an updated chrome bevelled knob. Two bookshelves sit on either side to display all of Carly’s cherished books and treasures. A full length bevelled mirror was incorporated into the space….a must have for a teenage girl! Soft off-white textured sheer panels were used on both windows (Ikea)
I used my client’s existing night tables and again, changed the hardware to a cut glass knob. Two matching open top glass lamps sit on either side that can be filled up with treasures….in this case sea shells. My client found the perfect coral accent pillows that tie in the colours of the watercolour painting to the right.
