A Cool Girl's Bedroom

WHEN DESIGNER JACY PAINTER KELLY, owner of Jacy Painter Kelly Interiors, took her family to New York City last summer, her 10-year-old daughter Lucy went crazy for the cool urban vibe of their downtown hotel room. It gave Lucy the itch to makeover her own bedroom in their Fort Mill home. She wanted more mature accents like silver wall sconces and velvet pillows, paired with punk rock elements like a graffiti-inspired bed frame and pink neon sign. Luckily her designer mom knew exactly how to tie it all together.

Bratty – Bedroom Pop para el nostálgico presente

Hace menos de dos años que Jenny Juárez se mudó a la Ciudad de México proveniente de Culiacán. Llegó a la capital del país con montones de likes y rimeros de views en el celular gracias a sus canciones; o, mejor dicho, sus confesiones. Todas ellas soltadas a solas, en su habitación. Ante el espejo negro de una laptop.
