A Bijou Room – for Elysia

A Bijou Room – for Elysia

I’ll be back later today or tomorrow with part 3 of the NYC recap but for now, a little design.
A friend of mine recently emailed asking if I could help her with her tween daughter’s room.
Her only instruction was that  ::shudders:: the space couldn’t be pink.
After regrouping from that drop kick to the face, I picked myself up and started with some ideas.
My first thought was that if I couldn’t use pink than I sure as hell wanted to paint that sucker Hague Blue…it’s the next best thing if you ask me.
So here you have it…a room that’s certainly not pink (insert sad face) but still rather rosy.

And the good news, I actually stayed in budget.
Now I just have to cross my fingers that she actually likes it.
Happy Saturday all and PS, here’s hoping the Rapture is all a bunch of head cheese.

    Where is the headboard from? It’s very similar to the one I’m looking at for my room.

    No pink??? Painful! But agreed, Hague Blue is just stunning. Love the bits of yellow in there. And having two LV pieces doesnt hurt either! Absolutely gorg

    Hope she goes with it and then we can see the after. Love all your choices. That reminds me, I still need to finish both my daughter’s rooms. One wants hot pink, which I have allowed in small doses.

    Stunning and so sophisticated! Just perfect for a tween!

    I especially love the brass library sconces. I want them lining our hallway but the only ones that work best are a bit pricey–especially when I need so many.

    GREAT WORK! I hope to see more. πŸ™‚ xo

    loving all the details and how you have combined traditional elements with fab mod ones.

    When I was a teen, I never ever would have done pink either. Some of us have to grow into it πŸ™‚

    And super duper congrats on you new niece!! Enjoy your time with your sister.

    All I can say is WOW, I’m completely floored. This is SO me it’s ridiculous. Should I be concerned about that since this space is for a tween? ;o) Fantastic job!

    Can you share something about the lamps and art in the top pic?
