A Modern Take on Pink and Purple


When I met with the family to design this room their little girl just had two requests: purple and ballerinas.  Since the parents have a very contemporary european style we incorporated sophisticated furniture pieces with playful plays of pattern on the bedding and window treatments.

Design Inspiration

The first fabric that we chose for the room was the Designer's Guild fabric for the windows. The tree design is modern yet whimsical.  I particularly like the the fabric has some black in it to give it a bit of an edgier look. 

Decorating Style

This room has tall ceilings so we had some fun with paint and over-sized decals. 

Project Details

Bedding - John Robshaw

Desk - Parsons Desk from West Elm

Chair - Ghost Chair

Tall Bookcase - Land of Nod

Favorite Items

My favorite element of the room is the layering of the fabrics.  We never repeated a pattern in this room and all fabrics are from different vendors but they all harmonize wonderfully.

What are the paint colors? I saw all of the room item names, but not seeing the color names of the paint and what I was actually the most interested in.
