A QUAR­TET OF CHARM­ING BED­ROOMS FOR GIRLS

201 Family - - 2017 SCHOOL GUIDE - WRIT­TEN BY AMELIA DUGGAN

When you have a home with four girls of var­i­ous ages, it’s im­por­tant to let them ex­press their in­di­vid­u­al­ity and cre­ativ­ity. Tak­ing part in the in­te­rior de­sign of their bed­rooms is the per­fect way to let them learn about fur­nish­ings and finishes and to give them a sense of ac­com­plish­ment – not to men­tion a cool place to hang out in.

LAVEN­DER AND TURQUOISE TEEN DREAM

An emer­ald green lac­quered built-in wall of cab­i­nets and clos­ets is a sig­na­ture fea­ture of this teen bed­room. A wall-to-wall car­pet in an an­i­mal print was cho­sen not only for its hip pat­tern, but for its dura­bil­ity. A king-size bed with a linen head­board is ac­ces­sorized with Ital­ian bed­ding and John Rob­shaw pil­lows. The night­stands are two small van­ity desks painted in black lac­quer by the home­owner. Again, Lucite chairs are used specif­i­cally to van­ish into the space. The Bar­bie prints are orig­i­nal and the yel­low eglos­sine is from Hart­gers in Wy­ck­off. The room also fea­tures a Mu­rano chan­de­lier and pea­cock lamps from Shades of SoHo. The mold­ing is all lac­quered and the ceil­ing has a glit­tery shim­mer that was in­cor­po­rated into the Ben­jamin Moore paint, pro­duc­ing a sheen.

STAR IN STRIPES

The room re­flects the per­son­al­ity of the child who lives in it and has a Palm Beach mod vibe to it, mak­ing it youth­fully fun with so­phis­ti­cated pieces. The teen wanted her room to be more of a hang­out space than a pure bed­room, so a John Rob­shaw daybed with Jonathon Adler bed­ding was se­lected as a start­ing point. The striped walls are painted in grey and white flat paint from Fine Paints of Europe and all of the trim and the ceil­ing are a high lac­quer fin­ish. The space also fea­tures a Bru­tal­ist dresser in white lac­quer fin­ish with a mir­rored top from Artis­tic Glass in Glen Rock. The Ital­ian ce­ramic top­i­ary on the small dresser was found in an an­tique shop in Man­hat­tan.

SOOTH­ING IN­SPI­RA­TION

The in­spi­ra­tion for this room comes from a neck­lace that the home­owner found in an an­tique store. The col­ors are soft and re­lax­ing, but bold at the same time. The coral ceil­ing is painted with shim­mer glit­ter in­cor­po­rated and the mold­ings are in high gloss lilac lac­quer. The bed is a vin­tage brass, found in Los An­ge­les and the in­laid night­stands are in mint lac­quer. In the sit­ting area is an as­sort­ment of John Rob­shaw and Adler pil­lows. A sisal in­door/out­door rug was cho­sen to give the space a ca­sual feel. The can­vas sofa is from Crate and Bar­rel, the chan­de­lier and light fixtures from Jonathon Adler, and the ac­ces­sories are Herme’s. Gar­den stools serve as cock­tail ta­bles and are set on top of a sheep­skin rug.

JILL AND JILL BATH­ROOM

This shared bath fea­tures charm­ing penny tile on the floor and sub­way tile with ac­cents of green glass on the walls, which are ac­cented by orig­i­nal Diane Von Fursten­berg prints. The van­ity has a Car­erra mar­ble coun­ter­top and white cab­i­netry. Pocket doors on both sides of the bath­room max­i­mize the space.
