STYLE IT: sleeps with butterflies

even though i'm surrounded by boys in my home, i'm girly at heart. so when a friend of mine who lives afar needed modish yet frilly ideas for her daughter's room, what's a décorista to do but help?

i grabbed a stack of catalogs + hopped on the 'net to start goodwill hunting. what i found, i loved.

starting with this pink tufted headboard in microsuede from company kids, i was smitten. affordable + adorable, it works for little one, tween or teen. (a gray "sleepi" crib from giggle would look equally smashing in this room.)

behind it, hang this super fantastic eco-chic wallpaper (it comes in fabric too) from austin's mod green pod. licorice "butterfly jubilee" silhouettes flit + flutter amid a small-scale earl grey damask. each roll is vinyl-free + hand-printed using non-toxic inks.

choose fluffy white bedcovers like these egyptian cotton sateen from company kids (now on sale!).

next up, toss pillows. granted you'll need to make them or have your favorite seamstress do it for you. try bigger pillows in large-scale licorice "grand jubilee." then add a fewer smaller ones in small-scale raspberry "wee jubilee." fabric is 100% organic cotton canvas grown, woven + printed in the united states using non-toxic pigments. now you have yourself some awfully cute bed clothes (if you don't paper the wall in "butterflies," make some pillows.)

for fun, add jonathan adler's "hugs" needlepoint pillow. who can resist?

with a sparkly "mia" chandelier from pottery barn kids, a sweet matching pink tufted bench and cable knit throw in black (or punch, if you must) from company kids, your darling girl will fly and, of course, be fly.

p.s. check out "sleeps with butterflies" by tori amos on iTunes.
