Room to Love: Teen dream

. Meredith Thompson

The archway

Wellesley-based designer Andra Birkerts employed an upholstered, arched niche as the backdrop to this teenage girl’s lounge in a Chestnut Hill home designed by Adolfo Perez Architects in Newton. “Curvy lines, texture, and natural materials create a cozy haven with a Moroccan flavor,’’ Birkerts said.

The rug

A round Thomas Paul rug defines the lounge area on this side of the room, and adds softness to the glossy-white poured-epoxy floor.

The swing

Birkerts called the swoosh-shaped rattan swing from Blackman Cruz Workshop, draped in sheepskin, an “amazing floating object,’’ adding that “it’s a dreamy contrast to the usual acrylic bubble swings.’’

The chairs

Whimsical Cloud chairs by Design House Stockholm provide a plush spot to kick back and relax. “The concept was to carve out a handful of unusual places in her suite of rooms for sleeping, studying, and lounging,’’ Birkerts said.

The lighting

Multiple layers of lights are textural, decorative, and offer various moods and functions. “Along with the giraffe wallpaper, they add personality,’’ Birkerts said. The giraffe is from Wall & Deco.

The end table

This vintage piece “adds an element of something old with character to the space,’’ said Avery True, a senior designer at Andra Birkerts Design. “It’s also shaped like a jacks toy, which adds some whimsy.’’
