welcome to the final week of the calling it home one room challenge. if you have followed along, i worked on transforming my teen daughter, alexandra's room. she is edgy, built her gaming computer, loves harry potter and dr. who, and is quite the individual. this design contains some of my design influence with plenty of her design choices and requests weaved in. it is bold, bright, and full of energy and edge, just like her. this was done on a tight budget, remember the salamandre zebra fabric i chose? you will see the $80 less per yard version in the custom pillows on her bed. i opted to invest in the zebra rug instead.
modern jungle funk final reveal
these are my amateur shots of the room all styled and accessorized...
for the before photos, click here. the area is large and had to include a desk/computer/gaming area, a reading nook, a sleeping/bed area and a place to store her gaming and youtube video designing supplies.
in lieu of ordering art from minted, one of the one room challenge sponsors, i opted to float frame two of alexandra's pastel feather art pieces. these are hung above her chest of drawers (she also wanted to keep her childhood bedroom set). check out the minted site, you can get high-quality art prints frames or not at really good prices...i plan on ordering minted art for my next room/project.
just a tiny sample of her book collection and a dr. who tardis she sculpted from clay.
the reading nook and the chair she found at marshall's...and, my sloppy "i am tired of styling and photographing" writing on the blackboard wall.
a styled side table. vintage, brass vase with a vintage blue willow dish full of her coins from all over the globe and a gold target sunburst sculpture.
the major purchase was this zebra print rug from joss & main. we layered it over a sisal rug trimmed in black that we had from our old country house. those shoes...aren't they great? alex is taking a trip to hawaii and will wear these through the airport...comfy and she can just slip them off and on again through security.
lastly, thank you to linda at calling it home and all the bloggers for the support and kind words. here's to all the fun and countless hours designing our spaces; and on to the next project. much love, dana
p.s. i'm on instagram...i have yet to figure out how to code the darn gadget into this blog.
