Pink, but not too precious

Home Tours

Decorating a house takes a lot of time and a lot of money. If you live in a huge house, it takes even more time and more money. I’ve been working with a handful of my clients for a really long time on their large homes. We sort of take things piecemeal and I’m cool with that. I like working in layers.

This client has a large and lovely home and though she likes the look of her home to fall on the less cluttered side, I’d say we’re about 75% there with her decorating projects. But I think it’s good to take a break, let the new furniture settle in a bit and begin to prepare for the next layer.

I got some of the progress photos from this home last week and I thought I’d share a few shots. You’ll probably remember the night stand project from this old post.

I think this home is the perfect mix of high and low furnishings. The couple spends on only things they really, really love and plan to keep for a long time.

These were two inspiration images for the oldest daughter’s room:

Suzanne Kasler

Wall color: Benjamin Moore Pale Oak
Chair: LEE Industries in Raspberry Strie velvet
Pouf: Tazi Designs
Bed: Oly Studio Helena
Sheets: Serena and Lily
Duvet: Pine Cone Hill (Hannah in pink)
Quilt and shams: Matteo
Box spring cover: Restoration Hardware Matelasse in Blush
Rug: Wool broadloom that looks a lot like seagrass but is really quite soft.
Pink chevron pillow: Fabricadabra
Nightstand: Homegoods DIY knock-off of Bungalow 5 night stand
Side table: Restoration Hardware Baby
Lamps: Pottery Barn
Curtains: Made them from inexpensive but nice, heavy weight linen I found on Fabric Row in Philly

It was a perfect match with the duvet. We really wanted a coral, peachy pink for the room, so this fabric was a big find.

The placement of the windows and the queen-sized bed made curtains tricky. We opted for one wide panel at each window pulled to the side with a tie-back. It’s hard to see, but we added a thick band of creamy white linen to the leading edge. This was our inspiration photo.

We’re getting there! Layers! We’ve talked about putting up a big wall of fabric-covered cork board in a coral and white stripe for pinning up homework and artwork, etc. There’s also some cute pink movie posters that need to go up.

  1. I agree with that! I think if I ever won the lottery, my hosue and yard would look GREAT…but if you do it too fast, it looks like you threw it together.

  2. Yummy, and I love your approach, let things settle a bit along the way. In the end an ideal final result when time is given to think about the details.

  3. That looks so pretty and fresh! I like the idea of working in layers. I think it for sure makes for a unique home when you have the time to really think about decisions and shop around.

  4. Looks great! I loved that dresser makeover. Can you share the source/brand for the pulls. I have been searching for ring pulls to put on one of my desks and I CANNOT find any simple ones like that.

  5. oh, jenny, it's beautiful! if i were a little girl, i would love to live in that room… will "grow" so well with her too. that chair is amazing. xo

  6. I couldn't help but notice your purse/bag in the picture of the pink fabric. Where did you get it please??

    LOVE the room by the way.

  7. Jenny, this room is great! I'd love to see a post from you about working in "layers". I am moving to a new place in a couple of weeks and all I can think about is how much I want the decorating to be DONE right away. What are your secrets for taking your time and "layering"?
