For the youngest daugheter, Small created a bright turquoise-and-red space that manages to be more punchy than patriotic. "The girls love those rooms," she says. "My sister-in-law wanted to make sure the designs were age-appropriate but also timeless. After all, they're going to be 18 and out the door before we know it. We wanted to create spots that they could keep coming back to."
The headboard and window treatments are custom by the designer. The rug is from Dash & Albert, and the walls are painted Pool Party by Benjamin Moore.
