A bedroom for my sweet niece, Cammy

My wonderful niece Cammy has traveled the world and lived in a yurt. She has studied how to be a good citizen by planting and living off the land. She is a creative person and a wonderful photographer. So reinventing her childhood bedroom became an act of respect and a nod to her sensibilities while still fitting into the home of her Silicon Valley tech parents.

The base of the room is all Libeco Linens from Belgium in taupe. We used the existing carpet which has thin red stripes and a family heirloom brass bed from her great grandmother. We took Libeco Chester drapery panels and lined them and interlined them in our workroom. They hang now on antique gold rubbed poles that go from wall to wall and allow her to completely open her room to the garden or close herself off from the world.

While the base notes are all calm- the bed goes wild with color and embroidery and beads- a nod to her travels- and easily changed should she change her favorite color someday. For now, oranges, turquoises and gold will transmit her to Thailand, Burma and places East.

The chandelier was made by me with hand blown glass and colors picked up from her exotic bed accessories from Pine Cone Hill and room accents from Dessau Home. Lamps from Cyan Design.

Love you Cam—hope you like it.
