Serena's Pastel Bedroom

There are perks to having a mother who is an interior designer – just ask Serena, daughter of Bask Interior’s Michelle Hart.

With a brief to create an interesting bedroom for a teenage girl, Michelle surprised Serena with the makeover when she returned from a school trip.

The hero of the room is the stunning wallpaper, which is from the Sarah Ellison ‘Light of Heart’ collection, purchased from Emily Ziz Style Studio. Surprisingly it doesn’t limit the style of the room – instead becoming a great backdrop for any colour.

Another statement is the Lady Peacock bedhead from The Family Love Tree: Chosen for its pattern, texture and versatility, it was originally used in Serena’s bright, boho-themed bedroom when she was younger. The room has been personalised with Serena’s favourite music and artist posters, and artworks adorning her cupboard doors. Michelle included “things she likes such as plants, crystals, candles and her own handmade ceramic pieces on display.”


Artwork includes ‘Marie’ a limited-edition print by US artist Gina Julian (framed by Forman Picture Framing), and the Andy Warhol print ‘All Is Pretty’; “Andy Warhol happens to be one of her favourite artists right now. She has seen the recent Warhol and Ai Weiwei exhibition five times!”

 ‘Lily’ ladder and ‘Luna’ round side table from Mubu Home, ‘Bella Vista’ string lighting from Norsu Interiors, bed linen from Abode Living, ‘Harlequin’ plant stand from Ivy Muse, oak shelf with leather strap from Interior Motives, grey felt pinboard from Al & Em, knit throw from Tribe & Co.
