Room Love!

Tuesday, May 18, 2010
Before we get into the goodies let me just say that this room was designed by Kara, a 17 years old student who is a little creative bee and this place completely embodies her style and personality.
Just to clarify the names: twirl is skirts, yaypants is of course panties and lazy is for all her lazy clothes. I am thinking about doing the same on mine. How fun!
All the knobs are from Anthropologie. So cute!
A touch of bright yellow! Don't you adore those little colorful buttons?
Kara managed to create this room on a shoestring budget. Isn't that just fascinating to see a 17 year old girl being so creative?

How did your room looked like when you were her age?

See you soon,

A 17-year old decorated this room? I was not nearly that stylish at that age!

I;m impressed! My room wasn't nearly as cool. It was mauve (cringe) with a green and mauve flowered bedspread, with green wicker furniture and a green trashcan. It's laughable now (hey, it was the late 90s) but I thought it was SO cool then.

Ohh I'm moving house soon, so these are some great inspiration! I especially love the closet - changing the knobs on a closet is like changing the button on a jacket, it alters the whole look. And of course the writings. I am so going to steal that idea (:

when i was 17, my walls were plastered with pictures and posters and movie stubs, floor to ceiling, and ON the ceiling!

thank you so much for your kind words on my dining room table impromptu decorating, and for stopping by the cape on the corner!

Lenore said...

Wow is there every a ton of personality in that room!! I love, love, love the dresser and I'm now inspired to do something really out of the box with a bedside table I'm revamping!

Thanks so much for stopping by Lather. Write. Repeat. Come back soon!

Probably like a dumping ground of some sort.. wish I'd understood interior styling like that at her age

Claire Kiefer said...

That is totally amazing. I love it! I'm terribly embarrassed about my 17 year old room . . . suffice to say that there were magazine cutouts all over the place and an overdose of Courtney Love posters. :)
