Child's Bedroom From HGTV Green Home 2009
A mermaid and seashell motif lends magic to a citrus-infused kids’ space designed by HGTV’s Sabrina Soto.
Guest designer Sabrina Soto, host of HGTV’s Get it Sold, was tasked with creating a magical girl’s bedroom that was also eco-friendly. Soto chose a cheery hot-pink and orange color palette and a beachy mermaid theme took shape when the designer spotted artwork at a local boutique. The whimsical theme extends to the twin daybed, custom-crafted from reclaimed wood and padded and upholstered in striped “Azalea” outdoor fabric. The color of the club chair and bright-turquoise embroidered pillow inject a shot of fun in the reading nook. The room’s finishing touches are its best green stories. An ABC chair rail that runs the perimeter of the room features pegs crafted from reclaimed curtain rods. And a collection of wall plaques displayed next to the cabinet demonstrates Soto’s true DIY spirit.
