Cleverly straddling the line between trendy and lasting design, Tami Ramsay of Cloth & Kind, based in Athens, created this teenager’s bedroom to look good today and years from now.

Dynamic duo
The happy combo of green and blue (“Napa Vineyards” and “Poolside” from Benjamin Moore) for the bookcase were on the Pinterest board of the room’s resident, Isla Jane Eady.

Material girl
Eye-catching canopy fabric from Clare Louise Frost (available through the designer’s showroom) is another star in the room, cheerfully coexisting with a whimsical animal pillow.

Wicker moments
A swivel wicker chair from Perigold can be moved around the room.

The designer selected a custom wool rug for the floor in a subtle pattern that grounds the room.

Round we go
“We loved doing something playful with the bookcase, and that scalloped edge added a degree of special,” says Ramsay, who notes that the same motif appears in the scalloped sconce shade (painted a custom color) from Stray Dog Designs.

Design Tip: Include something old and artisanal. On the bed, a vintage Kantha quilt from Aloka Home adds character.
