A Place to Call Their Own

What could be a better Christmas gift for a pre-teen than your very own lounge room? That's exactly what Santa brought three North Dallas youngsters this year!  After a quick field trip to HP Village's Rugby story, we agreed on an approachable and stylish look I would best describe as New England meets Hill Country. 

This comfy room is at once preppy and rustic, with a mix of rich leather, textured fabrics, weathered wood, various metals, and a rich persian rug - perfect for a cozy and durable adolescent entertaining space.  Tucked in a corner of the room is a small loft outfitted in a textured grey velvet cushion piled with houndstooth, linen, and velvet pillows.  You would find me reading here every day!  

It was important to the parents to showcase the passions and talents (music, art and sports) of each child, so the room is full of personality. Artistic sports photographs of the kids were printed in sepia tone and hung gallery style around a large mirror.  One of my favorite things in the room is a custom brass lamp with a vintage drum for the shade.

Once the finishing touches on the lounge room are complete, we will move onto the next phase of the project including a casual French country family room and a feminine office for mom.  Stay tuned for photos and more...
