In order to do this she got ruthless and threw away, gave to charity, and passed on a load of stuff to smaller family friends. I was impressed.
Mood Collections, who do a fabulous range of upholstered furniture (and accessories including the most gorgeous mirrors). It was made to order in my choice of fabric and leg colour. Ridiculously soft Taupe velvet, and Ebony wooden legs since you asked. And it was made in my choice of colour, not because I'm a complete control freak*, but because it was a surprise. It has a softly curved headboard, is low to the ground, and incredibly inviting. She adores her new bed, which is great obviously, but I'm a little concerned she may never leave it.
*I might be a bit of a control freak.
I added some stunning gold hued velvet curtains, also from Drop It Modern, and her broken blind has been relegated to the scrap heap. The lovely thing about curtains (well, there are MANY lovely things), is that she can easily open and close them herself, whereas the blind was a total pain. But more importantly than the practicalities though, is that she absolutely loves them (and so do I!), and they add an extra layer of luxe-glam to her room.
The design of this room has been a collaborative effort between Edie and I, as I really wanted her to have a say in how it was going to look. Oh, alright, I may have steered her in certain directions when needed, but she absolutely loves her new room now that it's finally finished and has a cohesive look. It's a room that will work for her for several years to come, and will be her own little sanctuary. She's a lucky young lady, but don't worry, she knows.
