Day 502's fabric flashback


Katiedid recently shared some pictures of her lucky teenage daughter's bedroom, which happens to be decked out in the same Marimekko pattern that I had in my dorm room in college. Oh, the memories ...


I can assure you that my room didn't look half as chic as this, but it was pretty much my first foray into "interior design" and I loved it. The pattern is so cheerful and I loved coming home to it everyday.


The seagrass headboard is from Pottery Barn and the pretty pierced lamp is from the Nate Berkus collection at Linens'N'Things. The side tables are Swedish antiques and that red mirror above is a flea market find (Katie painted it red).


Adjacent to the room is a cute little sunporch which was converted to a library with help from a set of West Elm white bookcases and an upholstered chair from IKEA (which is also the source for the red curtains). I don't usually love pine furniture but it looks chic here and really relates to the seagrass headboard. Katie's got great style, so of course it does!

I would have loved to have had a bedroom like that when I was a teenager! Lucky Gal!

That is a great bold print! We could make a great rug to match that fabric!

What an awesome room to have as a teenager! My college room never looked anything close to that! Lucky girl!
