A little while back (in our posts Transitional Edge Kitchen and Powder Bathroom), we shared some looks into a home project that is transitional yet edgy. This has truly been one of our favorite projects to work on as the client’s style is so on point with our own. She has impeccable taste, attention to detail, and appreciates the process of it all. She decided it was time to redo her daughters’ bedrooms and knew the amount each of them would want to be involved in the overall look. Her eldest daughter wanted a room that she would enjoy as she finishes high school and would be proud to come home to in a year when she leaves for college, but left the details up to us.

The only piece of furniture we decided to keep in the room was this bed. The headboard, made of an old door, was cool and architectural and we knew everything else would work well with it. We painted the walls black so that it would stand out even more and added new bedding from Restoration Hardware to soften it up a bit. She also already had this fun rug, but we love the new details as well (including the nightstand from Sitting Pretty and the milk glass lamp from West Elm).

We wanted to add some interest so we used this special wall treatment on some of the main walls. Can you believe our hand painter created this look with just a stencil and a paintbrush?

She also already had this vintage dress form which we knew would look amazing in her new space.

The light fixture, custom made by Gali Art, adds another fun architectural detail, and we love how the custom draperies turned out (very sleek and tailored).

The desk, dresser, etagere (also purchased from Sitting Pretty), and the desk chair from In Mode Home, are all interesting in their own right but do not look like a traditional set that you would expect. We decided to hang her existing antlers on this wall so that you see them when you first walk into the room and had them touched up with white paint for a fresh look.

Here is a close up of the wall treatment so that you can see how flawless it truly is (More from this talented artist to come in our blog soon …)! We picked out this fun piece of art from Z Gallerie to finish off the entry wall.

We absolutely love how this teen bedroom turned out. It is sophisticated, fun, and definitely edgy! We are in the process of finishing her sister’s room and can’t wait to share that with you as well. In addition, several of the other main rooms in the house are almost completed, and we are on the edge of our seats with excitement to unveil how magnificent they turned out … stay tuned!
