Grace's Bedroom



This is Grace's bedroom which I have just finished. Grace is a young teenage girl who loves pink so this is what I created for her. I am just finishing off a built-in desk unit which I have designed with pink and black patterned wallpaper sections so I will post pictures of it once it has been completed in a couple of weeks. She sure is a very lucky girl to be able to have this as her haven.

The wallpaper is lovely! Did you use it on just the wall behind the bed? I have been thinking about wallpapering just the wall behind my bed, but was unsure how it would look. Your pictures give me some ideas. I can see that there is a moulding and you've wallpapered just the part beneath. At what height did you place the moulding? Do you think this would work with a vaulted ceiling? Thanks for sharing your beautiful and inspiring work!

Anna,
I'm in agreement with everyone else! Graphic, yet feminine at the same time!

Fairfax said...

drey said...

it's great that while Grace loved pink you didn't make it a pink explosion. it's very grown up yet so luxurious at the same time!

did you paint etc those lamps yourself?

My 14 year old granddaughter and family are about to move into their new home and she wants her bedroom in these colours. I am forwarding this post to her - she will love it.

Yet again, I am really liking your more sophisticated takes on children and teen rooms. Good taste is for every age! I do so love the wallpaper and want to hear the specifics on it please!!

Wow - thank you all of you for your amazing comments!! This one is certainly a winner!

To answer some of your questions. The wallpaper was done as a feature wall behind the bed and it was a Designers Guild paper. The lamps we bought in white and I had my handyman paint them black for me and of course custom made lampshades with a pink flat braid trim.

Thanks again everyone for your extremely kind comments.

Joanne said...

I just adore that wallpaper!

LOVE this! It's fabulous, too, because if she ever outgrows the pink (but let's hope she doesn't!), I imagine it wouldn't be too hard to keep the black and white and introduce a new accent color, red or teal or something. I don't think I could ever part with that wallpaper! She is a lucky girl, indeed.
