Wild Child

Ever have a 13 year old kid want something as outlandish as this? We mixed new furniture featuring a nod to mid-century modern style with African motifs. A bronze wall supports the dresser and TV cabinet. A rain of beads and found things cascade from a spacey suspended disk. Black fringe curtains are cut at severe angles to roar like a lion. It all started as a fundraiser. Nothing like those to let a designer get carried away! I was assigned David's bedroom for a complete remodel of this sprawling '70's California Modern home. Knowing this young fellow was about to embrace manhood, it was important to design an imaginative environment he'd be okay coming home to later in life as he grew.
