Teenage Dream Bedroom + Dressing Room



The Teenage Dream bedroom and dressing room are complete and I know one teenager…and one designer…who are thrilled with the results!

What started out as two smaller bedrooms and a bathroom at one end of the upper floor became what is now dubbed ‘the Sophie wing’.  After an extensive search for a home with two master suites we found this home with a floor plan that I knew could work much like that.

At one end of the second level is the master suite and at the other end two smaller bedrooms along with a bathroom.  Separating these two spaces is a bright, open loft area that became my office.  A small entrance hall off the loft connects the two smaller bedrooms and bath and from that vantage point you can see into all three rooms at once making it almost like a mini suite…with a couple of extra walls.

Not instantly impressed with the size of the bedrooms I held out the promise of a bedroom for sleeping AND a dressing room for playing to this discerning client.  And an added bonus…two closets!



With my client’s flair for anything French these playful Eiffel Tower lamps are perfect.



This stunning bed from Oly is definitely the focal point of the room balanced with tailored mirrored night stands to keep the feel light and airy.  Layers and textures keep the black, white, and silver color scheme interesting.  The dress maker’s form clad in a Black Swan inspired tutu is a nod to 10+ years of ballet training.



The Parisian salon inspired dressing room continues with the same color scheme with added pops of Tiffany blue.  The filmy wall to wall drapery treatment and glamorous light fixture were kept the same in both rooms to give continuity.  Nothing says drama like a zebra patterned hide!



The movers did not like me the day this was delivered.  The impressive floor mirror covers almost the entire wall it leans against and opposite the other mirrored pieces offers plenty of reflections.



A collection of Eiffel Towers carries through the French inspiration.



The gallery wall features a collection of vintage photographs taken by famed photographer Norman Parkinson as well as some of my client’s modelling work.  And what’s a Parisian salon without a French poodle!



Teenage Dream bedroom and dressing room for this stylish client…mission accomplished!

Time to play!
