Years ago when I lived in Los Angeles while building our home and raising our daughters, I found myself wanted something to do in the design world. I became a merchandiser for a children's furniture store and quickly started doing interior design for clients babies rooms. A few years later when I moved to the East Coast, I opened my firm here in Greenwich. My projects were no longer just children's rooms as they are full scale projects sometimes from the ground up. It always makes me very happy when I get to do kids rooms and this project below was for a very cute 10 year old girl. We said goodbye to her sweet baby nursery looking room and said hello to a teenager suite. We chose pink but not baby pink, it's a strong grown up pink. And since the room was very small, we broke through the ceiling and added a fun secret room that is now her hang out room. When we installed the room we did it as a big "TA-DA!!" The little girl had several friends over anticipating the big reveal. She had them run in first and as they ran back to get her, you could hear one of the little girls say "Oh W... IT'S STUNNING" Such a cute moment!
We used Raoul Fabrics, China Seas and furniture from Jonathan Adler. The custom headboard is now on my home collection.
The stairs to upstairs nook we created also utilized a desk and some extra storage.
The upstairs nook is perfect for quiet time or fun girl sleepovers.
