Throwback Thursday: Eclectic Teen Girl Room {"Sugar, Spice & Kilim"}

Last February, I shared my E-Design for a client in Florida who requested "an airy, maybe pink, maybe orange, maybe purple, maybe white and gold, fun and quirky yet grown up, Audrey Hepburn sort of room" for her 14 year old. I interpreted this as "SUGAR, SPICE & KILIM".  It's light and breezy, bohemian yet elegant, and most importantly, still fun and not stuffy....because, after all, this room is for a teen girl, right?!
Bold, Yet Dainty
Strong Willed, Yet Sweet
Sugar, Spice and Kilim
"Keep Your Heels, Head & Standards High"

I was asked by a client to come up with a room for a teen that LOVES Audrey Hepburn movies. She asked for a little bit "Sabrina" and a little bit "Breakfast at Tiffanys". She wanted sophisticated yet still fun and not too "matchy". So a vintage, boho flat style was what I was trying to achieve. We needed to incorporate a few pieces that she had already and a new, exciting Kilim rug was on the MUST HAVE list. I encouraged and sourced a high quality Kilim that will be an heirloom for this teen girl...something that she can take with her and use her entire life. As a matter of fact, working within budget, we were able to find investment pieces (Rug, Bed, Lamp) that are staples that will never go out of style.


Kilim Rug, vintage.
Great sources for fabulous authentic Kilims are Furbish Studio and Amber Interiors {not to mention Ebay and Etsy, but may not be authenic}

Brass Bed  {a more budget friendly option here}
