Teen Girl's RoomTraditional Kids, Boston
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Feminine doesn't have to be girly. Think of this boudoir as a princess room all grown up — the Chinese-style four-poster is a fresh twist on an old-fashioned canopy, and a luxurious tufted sofa is the perfect spot to curl up on and study or chat with friends on the phone. Layers of pattern and texture add depth to the quiet palette.
This college-bound teen asked designer Katie Rosenfeld for a soothing environment. "She needed a place where she could decompress. Simplicity and no clutter were a priority for her, so the room had to make her feel relaxed after a long day of academics and athletics," says Rosenfeld. Yellow floral wallpaper, an Oriental rug, twin beds and a cement-block bookcase had given the room a hodgepodge feel. Now the chesterfield sofa, a four-poster bed and an overstuffed Lee Industries bench, together with accents from Lee Jofa, Sister Parish and Serena & Lily, mix traditional forms with a fresh, young palette of color and pattern.
