Eclectic Teen Girl Room E-Design {Sugar, Spice & Kilim}

Bold, Yet Dainty
Strong Willed, Yet Sweet
Sugar, Spice and Kilim
"Keep Your Heels, Head & Standards High"

I was asked by a client to come up with a room for a teen that LOVES Audrey Hepburn movies. She asked for a little bit "Sabrina" and a little bit "Breakfast at Tiffanys". She wanted sophisticated yet still fun and not too "matchy". So a vintage, boho, flat style was what I was trying to achieve. We needed to incorporate a few pieces that she had already and a new, exciting Kilim rug was on the MUST HAVE list. I encouraged and sourced a high quality Kilim that will be an heirloom for this teen girl...something that she can take with her and use her entire life. As a matter of fact, working within budget, we were able to find investment pieces (Rug, Bed, Lamp) that are staples that will never go out of style.

  1. Love this design! And, I want that rug!

    1. Thanks, Jamie! Appreciate you stopping by! I just added some Kilim rug sources within the post. They can be pricey if you are looking for an authentic one, but they hold up to anything and wear really well. Will last a life time. I think I may want one, too ;)

  2. that is all gorgeous. I love the framed animal prints and that chair!

    1. Thanks so much, Jenn. I am a sucker for silhouettes as well as tufted velvet chairs. Had to throw them all in this room! The animal silhouette prints are from PB Teen, but I think they could easily be a simple DIY, don't you?! XO!
