It is true that our tastes change over time. I am seeing more clients that would like to refresh their current, relatively newly decorated rooms. The rooms are currently traditional, but they would like to make them more transitional. Add more modern. Give the room lightness. Add something that is unexpected. Ok the last sentence is my theory. My current client has a little girl that is growing out of her crib. The nursery was very traditional. We will have to keep some of the furniture from the nursery. Her crib bedding, named Greta, was from Serena and Lily. All very lovely.
The pink in the Greta bedding is a bit dusty. It is a tough pink to work with, since it is hard to find complementary pink fabrics. The old decorator made a valance out of the same damask pink fabric and the walls are also the same pink. Lots of pink!
Realizing how difficult the pink was to match, the mom bought the complimentary sheets for the big girl bed in the same Serena and Lily pattern. Called Gracie, Serena and Lily has since discontinued it.
So now, my job is to change the nursery into a little girl's bedroom and add a modern feel to the space. So lucky that this Gracie bedding can easily harmonize with some modern elements. The mom also bought this fun Andy Warhol print that we will use as inspiration.
For the bed, I would like to do a high headboard upholstered in white faux patent leather.
I found these pillows at the last gift show that will add a little sparkle to the bedding. They are so delicate and sweet. From one of my favorite companies, Sivaana.
At the end of the bed I would like to put this upholstered brown and white linen storage bench .
We will keep the nightstand.
I found a crazy fun lamp to put on it. We may change out the shade. But how fun is it!
We will keep the simple white dresser
And add this mirror.
A nice bookshelf is needed...
A loveseat will sit underneath the Warhol with a very cool fixture
I wish I could blink and it would be done. How easy that would be....
