Cool Blues Create Fun Girl's Room

Blue hues ranging from brightest sky to deepest ocean turn this girl’s bedroom into a tranquil but playful retreat. Layered pattern varies from chevron to floral to Suzani, and the clients helped design the custom headboard’s shape.

Chic Girl’s Room in Shades of Blue

The clients, 10-year-old twins, helped designer Alisha Gwen create the fun shape of this custom, blue velvet-clad headboard. In the space, the girls’ favorite hues of blue and purple inspired the palette. Layered patterns and fun furnishings mix to form a tranquil bedroom with equal parts whimsy, function and style.
