Some Wonderful Girl's Rooms

Little girls often dream of having their very own special rooms........their own little havens.

The following rooms have lots of details and ideas to incorporate into a child's room to personalize for any child.........murals, canopies, wall art, wonderful fabrics, monograms, side chairs, antiques, chandeliers and stuffed friends scattered about with comfort, color and prettiness everywhere!

Any child's dream!


What little girl wouldn't love this room?  Living in a tent like room and surrounded by friends?

Love this ostrich painting.

A Traditional New York Penthouse

I happened upon the soft blue woman's study of this New York penthouse on Pinterest recently and had to track down the owner and designer, Friederike Kemp Biggs.

I was thrilled to find the rest of the penthouse at Architectural Digest.  I particularly love the master bedroom, adjoining bath and of course, the woman's study.

Library with tv hidden behind faux book spines.

Chinoiserie wall paper.

Unique kitchen with cabinetry painted black over China blue

Mantle vignette with antique Irish mirror

Beautiful master bedroom - love the cosiness with the mix of florals - patina bed from Rose Tarlow Melrose House - Scalamandre fabrics on light shades, pillows and ottoman

Adjoining bath with Scalamandre wallpaper to match bedroom

This is the study that caught my everything about it!

Penthouse terrace with blue and white accents.

Kelli Ford's Dallas Home

Remember this post from May?  See the rest of it here.

It is designer Kelli Ford's Southampton guest house - across the road from their Southampton vacation home.  Kelli and her sister, Kirsten Fitzgibbons, own the interior design firm KirstenKelli, and a gift shop by the name of Madison in Dallas.
