The designer introduced chocolate brown as an accent, and added a Greek key pattern to keep it a little edgy. Another daughter, whose favorite color is red, wanted bunk beds and a “fort” for her bedroom. Grigg created a canopy above the top bunk to provide a sense of enclosure, and softened the red accents with pale aqua blue. A ceiling rose was hand-painted with flowers that mimic the fabric in the drapes. For the two younger girls, who share a Jack and Jill bathroom, fresh pink, lemon and green tones were specified. “We attic shopped for these rooms,” says Grigg. “The tulle for the canopy in the green room was found in a backroom in our shop, and an old shelf became the crown. Existing furniture in the lemon room was repainted in a bubblegum pink. These bedrooms are also linked by the subtle striped painted walls – one vertical and one horizontal. While the ceilings in the other rooms are colored, these bedrooms have off-white ceilings to counter the busier pattern on the walls.” save | share Search 42620 at Preceding pages and these pages: The children’s bedroom on the preceding pages provides plenty of places to curl up with a good book.
