Girl's Room Pictures " HGTV Green Home 2011 "
Interior designer Linda Woodrum took one look at the carpet in a shade of bright bubblegum, and knew immediately that one room would be over-the-top colorful. “That room feels joyous and happy, and it’s fun to be in the space,” she says.
Window dressings include cellular shades and Roman blinds in a neutral shade to temper bright-pink shades. “Linen really holds up to the sun well. It doesn’t break down,” says interior designer Linda Woodrum. “It’s very sustainable.”
Clean, contemporary and uncluttered, the girl’s room features only essential furnishings to maximize floor space.
Hand-beaded, silver and shell mosaic trinket boxes add sparkle to the dresser top.
The perfect receptacles for a girl’s treasures, nesting boxes, artisan-crafted from sun-dried woven bamboo and beads, sparkle in the sunlight.
Platform-style twin beds are customized with custom-crafted headboards, slipcovered with natural linen.
Felted pillows in a rayon-wool blend lend texture and visual interest when paired with eco-friendly bedding.
A pair of natural seagrass baskets corral clutter in the space.
An oversized wing chair, upholstered in sustainable fabric, is paired with a casual wooden cube to create a reading nook. “The room is symmetrical with a chest and two beds and you want to keep it from getting too sterile. So you bring in things that don’t match,” says interior designer Linda Woodrum.
The inclusion of adult furnishings in a child’s space makes sense to Linda. “If a young girl is in there, she’ll be in there for maybe 10 years,” she says. “Don’t buy children’s furniture.”
In addition to the chest of drawers, a closet provides space to store clothing as well as linens and toys.
