Hey Ho . .
One of our least complicated installs this month was the teen room of Emma Malak. Sweetest girl ever. Emma needed an update. We all wanted purple, but not an abundance of it, just touches here and there. With the exception of a few things to keep: the side chests and framed sentimental baby clothes, we had a clean slate to work with. Maggie and I working together on this creating a few different directions for Emma to choose from. Take a look . . . it was all about narrowing down the wall paper and rug.
Option Three was our winner. The rug gave us a fit being back ordered forever, so we changed that and it actually was a happy problem. Love our other option. Take a look at the finished product.
We chose this grey on grey graphic accent paper, painting the two side walls a pale grey. The added purple stripe behind the desk accented the big mirror and Emma's framed baby clothes. A new upholstered bed and cornices have lasting power in pale grey as well. New, easy to function blinds in a warmer color keep the room from being too light.
Love this paper !
Also found the perfect art piece to compliment the rug.
A new tufted lavender chair and pouf and chandelier add a bit of elegance.
One of my favorite last minute ideas was adding cork to the back of all the doors. We then painted it the deep lavender. Emma can not only hang her favorite magazine pics, but also her jewelery.
The baby clothes could seem too sweet for this more grown up space, but we all felt they worked perfectly when paired with the strong graphic stripe.
A big two day hustle to paint, paper and deliver all the furniture, while Emma was away for a few days was so worth it when I saw her surprised face coming in the room !!!!
