Inspiration for a sassy girls bedroom

I am currently working with a client who wants to create a fun sassy girls retreat in the attic rooms of her Victorian home. How lucky is that? I thought that I would share some of our inspiration for the room….


This is a photo of fabric designer, Heather Bailey’s, booth at the most recent quilt market. It won best booth, not surprised. I loved the way she paired her very feminine, vintage, flirty prints with the white French settee covered in a stone gray fabric. I couldn’t tell if it was linen, cotton, velvet? But it is stunning either way.


Her newest fabric line is called Nicey Jane, so cute! I ordered the samples and now I have to narrow down our options from 40 fabulous prints to five or six. It will be tough. They are all so cute. We are going to use the this fabric for the pillows and canopies on the beds. The sheets and comforters will be a solid color, hopefully gray if we can find it and it works. However, it could also be lime green, pink or lavender. Oh the options!!!


We will be looking for a French wardrobe piece like this one from Village Chic in the UK. We considered building a walk-in-closet, but opted for a the wardrobe and privacy screens instead. The attic has lots of fun angels in the ceiling from the roofline – adding walls would have taken away from the charm of the room.

I love the nail head trim and the curves at the top of this privacy screen. We will probably choose an accent color for ours.


I can’t wait to show you how it all turns out!
