Ella's Spot

{Beach Bungalow Designs 2013}

I began with a blank slate when Niki hired me to decorate her daughter Ella's room. Ella was ready for a teen space that could last her until she moved out of the house for college. Niki and Ella came into the store together with a lot of fun ideas for the room. They knew that they for sure wanted a graphic print on the wall and that they wanted bright colors. Ella wanted a platform bed that was low to the ground and a soft textured rug. We set to work and it all began with the wall pattern.

Nikki pulled pictures of a room that had a pattern very similar to this. Lauren interpreted it slightly different and I think its the highlight of the room! We decided to paint 2 of the walls in an orange to bring in more color.

{ Pottery Barn Teen}
In order for us to stay on the budget alloted, we ordered a dresser and desk from Pottery Barn Teen in a crisp white to tone down the orange wall. Ella had a storage problem in her old room so we added a hutch above her desk to allow for more storage for her school supplies.

{ Custom Bedding and Window Treatments Beach Bungalow Designs}
We purchased a platform bed from Pottery Barn Teen and added a pink upholstered panel inside the wood frame for a more custom appeal. The duvet was a white jersey cotton from the Company Store and we added an orange grosgrain ribbon for color. I found the sheets from Serena and Lily and loved the trim and how it tied in our patterns through out.  

{Silhouette Painting by Lauren Heinle Murals}
One of my favorite features of the room was the silhouette painting of Ella that Lauren did. I LOVE the pony tail!! It was the perfect artwork to hang over Ella's bookcase.

{ Pottery Barn Teen Shelves}
We had some basic Pottery Barn shelves painted the same pink as the graphic wall to hang next to Ella's Bed.  We plan to accessorize with some fun orange elements in the future. I can't forget the  bubble gum pink shaggy rug. The jersey cotton shag will be comfy under Ella's foot while providing a nice texture and splash of color for the room.

 Special thanks to the Bentley family for hiring me to design this room! It was so fun to create a totally different look than I have ever done before. And as always we are here at the Bungalow to make your dream room come true too!
