This pre teens room had a wonderful, vibrant blue paint with a yummy "creamsicle" trim detail on the ceiling that coordinated with a gorgeous glass light fixture in the center of the room. The bay window had great built in drawers but needed softening and privacy at the windows. The striped fabric on the bench was the inspiration. It tied in the paint colors and allowed us to add lots of pattern and texture in the pillows. The roman shades are cordless so there is never a problem with unsafe cords dangling down getting the way.
