  1. You are so classy. I love this room- what a great mix of elements. I love those crushed velvet drapes and the mix of menswear fabric with the white embroidered pillow. I adore that painted dresser- it’s done so well and the pear print above.

    1. Thank you so much, Liz!! Your comment made my day… 🙂 I was afraid the room didn’t photograph the way it looks in person and your words made me feel so much better about the post. We really lucked out with those drapes. The funny thing is, the room looked so different before, yet the drapes work perfectly! Thanks, as always, for visiting!!

  2. A beautiful room! I love the color palette. I also love the mirrored lingerie chest, painted chest, and the canopy bed!! She should love this room as it is such a relaxing room to come home to!

    1. Thank you, Angelina! I think she does feel pretty comfortable here and we worked together on this room. Her favorite color is a pale lilac and she enjoys neutrals, as well. The only thing she would have preferred changing is the canopy bed, but I wasn’t ready to get a new bed and I think it works great in the room… 😉

  3. So pretty, Lori. Loving the mix of gray and lilac and then feminine and masculine.

  4. Lovely Lovely room Lory, I am sure your daughter must be thrilled with it.
    So nice that the draperies went so well with it too……
    It is a very warm and inviting room.

    Blessings, Nellie

    1. Thanks so much, Nellie!! I’m glad it reads as warm and inviting because I was very nervous about the dark grey. It’s the only room in the house with dark walls and the way it’s situated, half the room is very light and the other half quite dark. But we tried to use lots of elements that would make it feel comfortable… 🙂

  5. Oh, I’m lovin’ this room! The colors are feminine as well as grownup. I love lilac but it can be too girly or too matronly. You hit just the right color combo for a very welcoming room. I spotted her IU diploma…that’s a beautiful campus.

    1. Thanks so much, Donna! Yes, IU is magnificent actually. I always think of the fun time she had there so I sometimes forget how struck we were with the beauty of the campus the first time we went there. Would love to go back with my new camera one of these days… 🙂

    As always you have put together such a beautiful room. I love all the details, the pretty candles even the texture of the pear pictures frame..Perfect! The wall color is so soothing. Another winner!

    1. Thanks you, Elizabeth! This one was fun to do because it was a little different than my typical style, yet I think it still works with the rest of the house. So glad you appreciate all the details… 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!!

  7. A very beautiful and feminine room for your daughter – I’ve just re-decorated our Guest Room and chose Lilac/purple and grey with small touches of yellow, which looks really nice. I bet your daughter is one happy young lady who loves to come home and spend time in her room 🙂

    1. Thanks, Denise! The room is actually a perfect representation of who my daughter is with the mix of menswear and frills. She’s both strong willed and driven, yet soft and feminine… 🙂 I think she does enjoy coming home from time to time. Your room sounds lovely with the touches of yellow included.

  8. Hi again Lori – just wanted to say that I have noticed you have changed the ‘header’ of your website – that also looks very nice, but …. I do miss your beautiful photos on your ‘header’ that you had before – you take such beautiful photos and you should be very proud 🙂 I wish I had a camera like the one you must have and the abililty to take such beautiful photos 🙂

    1. Thank you, Denise! Actually, the photos are still there right under the header. I’ve updated a few of them and the category names are on top, but the design is still a work in progress and that might be revised. The entire site design was updated, mainly to upgrade the functionality, but the new design is also a bit more polished, I think.

      Are you reading on a computer or mobile? I’m definitely still having issues with the mobile design, so that might be affecting your experience. I do really appreciate the feedback, in any case. Please let me know if you are not seeing the category photos still. Thanks!!

  9. Gorgeous! Maybe the beautiful room awaiting her will bring her home more often?

    Stunning! Really a restful lovely room!

    Lory, You did a wonderful job with this room! I sometimes find grey to be a cold color, but not in this case–everything together has a very cozy feel and I love that the room has a unisex look. As always, you knew just what elements would work best, and I’m crushing on that pop of just the right color lilac and those gorgeous crushed velvet drapes. I know your daughter has to feel very special that mom put in so much effort just for her.

    1. Thanks, Bobbi! Yes, I usually stay away from greys too, but just figured I’d go for it in this room. I hope I remember to do the room reveal of her apartment bedroom. It has a similar feel but much lighter – more beige with lilac touches than grey… 🙂

  12. Very nice. You have managed to make a frou-frou color like lavender and make it hip and chic at the same time. Silver tones were an excellent idea. Very lovely room…perfect for an up-and comer and as a guest room will make guest think it’s a 4-Star hotel. Thanks for sharing, Sandi

    1. Thanks so much, Sandi! Sometimes I think our house is a hotel… lol!! But, of course, I love having guests… 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!!

    Lory, I adore this color palette! Grey and lavender are my two favorite colors. I think your daughter will continue to enjoy coming home to this sophisticated room! Keep up the good work. I enjoy your blog very much.

  14. What a lovely and tranquil room to come home to- I wouldn’t be surprised if she moved back home! love the mix of textures and surfaces in such a subtle palette-Love the mirrored chest and I was going to ask where you found the drapes.

  15. looks great, not cold but cool and comfy. Love the combination/balance of frills & masculine materials. I am curious what color wall paint?

  16. Your daughters bedroom makeover is both feminine and elegant,love the drapes and the chest of drawers.

    Love the gray walls in this bedroom. In the article it refers to the color as a “warm gray.” May I have the name of the color and who makes it, please?
