sweet 16

One of my current projects has me especially delighted to be working with two teenage girls on their room and study. I'm sooo excited for the rest of the house too of course, but there's a special kind of thrill getting to help them bring their energetic and slightly daring sense of style to life.

So Helen, my dear, this post's for you!

As you can see, red will be playing a role, as will black and white.....

Some parts will be edgy and sophisticated and feminine....

Graham Moss
and there will definitely be a few bold playful elements...

Lizzy Carney in Country living
Nuevo Estilo (the feeling, not the colors :)
And perhaps some sort of clean drama and high contrast too....
We are planning on keeping the palette pretty limited with black, white, red, golds and a few grays, but the overall feeling will be glamorous and rather high impact, but not to the point of feeling cluttered or distracting. 

Come early March, I should have some exciting pictures to share! Admittedly I have been terrible about posting projects. I have a back log of past design projects to photograph, and it seems that the task always gets pushed to the bottom of my list as new projects present themselves and my schedule fills up. However, Lauren's post on portfolios definitely inspired me to get my act together and take some pics, so be on the look out y'all!


  1. Ohhh I'm loving the red chandelier in the Metropolitan Home image! What great inspiration!

  2. I absolutely love designing children's and teenager's rooms. They don't have preconceived ideas of what good design is and they are often way more fabulous than the rest of the house. Can't wait to see what you do!

  3. I just can't wait to see the transformation!!!! With all of these incredible images as inspiration, I know it's going to be chic, comfortable and fun! What a lucky teen! Hope all is well!!!! xx Danielle

  4. Somewhat like what is seen in the photo from ELLE DECOR, I like to use red picture frames, especially if the budget does not allow good gilt ones. Frames painted an old Venetian red are flattering borders for antique hand colored engravings.
