Funky, Colorful Haven for a Tween Girl from Olamar Interiors
Eclectic, bright, and funky: that’s this “tween” room with a “bohemian” touch, designed for a young lady with artistic flair, from Olamar Interiors. The young client had some definite wants; lots of color, with no stylistic extremes — neither all modern nor traditional — and a place she could hang out with her friends where they’d all feel at home. It was important to have spots to curl up and chat or play games on her iPad; she needed a comfortable desk and wanted a “funky” vanity that would accommodate her jewelry and give her a spot for makeup. This space, with its pale periwinkle blue-and-lavender aura, satisfies all those requests with a style that’s both spirited and sophisticated, able to grow along with its occupant. Furnishings in a clear, pure white help unify the scheme, while a playful pink chandelier brings a smile.
The daybed, with its splashy pinks, yellows, and subtle purples, gets a further “shot” from chevron patterns on the pillows and bright framed fun art over the headboard. Tucked in a bay window is a settee for relaxing; her existing desk was repurposed and augmented with shelving and storage. A custom bulletin board above the desk gives her space for pictures, her own art, or important notes; the vanity with its red-scrolled mirror gives her that makeup and jewelry space while also serving as a secondary nightstand. Sheer panels and overlays on the windows give the room lots of daylight and privacy after dark. With plenty of storage available, this young artist never needs to worry about clutter or crowded space; she has a perfect niche for both creativity and fun, for years to come.
