Makeover Monday: xoxo

OMG, S and B spotted at Berg's after lunch with C & N? Even if you're not up to speed on the Gossip Girl vernacular, you can translate the look of Serena van der Woodsen's chic bedroom in your own home.

Why this works: This set designed by Loren Weeks is a pure translation of the characters rock-n-roll bad girl personality. As I've said it many times on this blog, a good room design not only involves shape, space and colour, but it should be an extension of your personality- it should say something about the fabulous person you are!

With the metallic pillows, mix of vintage furniture pieces and luxe fabrics, this room says this girl has class, taste, and a wicked wardrobe to boot. I am in love with the padded headboard and am dreaming up a DIY project for a client.

There's also a tasteful balance of pattern in this room: the headboard polka dots are smaller than the flowers on the wallpaper above the dresser. If the scale of each motif was the same size it would lose impact.

I recommend taking InStyle's virtual tour, you'll be left drooling. To cope with the lack of her incredible closet, here are a few pieces from her room and where to find them in the TDot. xoxo
