We are so excited that super talented Hampshire based interior designer Nels Crosthwaite Eyre of Eyre Interiors has created this beautiful decorating scheme for a teenage girl’s bedroom, especially for PatternSpy.
She says of the scheme ‘I have designed seven boys’ bedrooms in the last couple of years which has been really fun, but I jumped at the chance to do something for a teenage girl. Clients have recently wanted to install rooms that will stand the test of time rather than a faddy children’s design, so this is the brief I have worked towards.
Pink and green is one of my favourite colour combinations – pink is the ultimate girly colour, but the use of an antiquey green makes the palette feel more grown up. The stronger blues in the bolster cushion and trim also add some depth. The large coral tassels on the curtain were irrisitable and ensure the scheme is young and fresh.
I love mixing rustic materials and textures into my designs. I find this helps to balance my taste for quite maximalist schemes – it grounds everything. Cane and rattan are perfect for this – and a headboard in rattan would break up the space nicely. I imagine crisp white bedlinen with maybe a sweet lace trim around the edge.
The curtain fabric is Suzani Garden from Pardis Collection, which is a fabric brand set up by myself and a friend Felicity Buchanan. Felicity is a very talented watercolour artist who paints beautifully detailed patterns inspired by her love of nature. She and I met working for decorator Robert Kime and so have a mutual passion for design heralding from The East.
I am also slightly obsessed with Chelsea Textiles’ new Small Prints collection (seen here for the valance). They are timeless, easy to use and are an excellent price at £51.00 per metre.”
