Designed for a young girl who loves to read, this bedroom elicits admiring gasps when guests first see the pretty coral-painted cabinetry that frames a built-in reading and lounge nook. Our design of the nook adopts the slant of the attic room ceiling, a choice that proved to be challenging, as the ceiling and walls are quite imperfect. Carefully constructed cabinets made our concept work, and the charming result provides open shelving for books and toys, as well as closed storage for the clothing and other belongings of an active girl.
Prior to a thoughtful remodel, the bedroom was dark even on during daylight hours as a remedy, we added wall sconces and recessed downlighting, as well as a decorative chandelier designed to resemble a flower. Colorful wallpaper with a floral motif adds a fresh touch. The bedroom’s mix of coral cabinetry and floral wallpaper, quilted bedspread blooms and whimsical lighting, yields a happy, youthful effect.
