Poppy's Pink and Green Bedroom

Interior designer Melinda Hartwright from Georgica Pond Interiors is most well-known for her blue-and-white Hamptons-style taste and I can tell you that her home is simply gorgeous. Mel has kindly shared with us her daughter Poppy's gorgeous bedroom which is equal parts sweet and chic.

Room: Poppy's bedroom
Age: 3
Designed by: Mum Melinda Hartwright (Georgica Pond Interiors)
Location: Sydney

Mel isn't afraid to mix patterns and creates a cohesive look by keeping the florals, spots and stripes to a tight palette of pinks, green and light blue. The hot pink Victorian chair is the perfect counterpoint to the softer colours in the room, while still keeping within the colour palette. Mel amps up the sophistication level in Poppy's room with the mirrored side table and grown-up bamboo lantern - both pieces that she is sure to love right through her teen years.

Bed head: designed by Mel and custom-made with San Lorenzo fabric in Sky by Westbury Textiles.
Bedspread: Green Matouk bedspread from Gracious Home in New York City.
Valance: made by Mel using spot fabric from Bargain Upholstery Fabrics in Seaforth, NSW.
