What’s blue and white and striped all over?  The master bedroom of Julia Dzafic of the blog Lemon Stripes!  Many of you already know this bloggerina – Gray Malin featured her home (ahem, designed by Havenly!) on his site earlier this year.  Now it’s our turn!

WHO:  Julia  Dzafic, the voice behind the lifestyle blog Lemon Stripes and Marketing Director for Nourish Snacks.

WHERE: A happy home in Greenwich, Connecticut where she resides with her photographer husband.

WHAT SHE WANTED:  Julia is all about the preppy chic look – stripes, ginger jars, mirrored finishes and pops of pink.  She wanted her bedroom to feel clean, bright, happy, yet grown up.  Julia wanted to keep her bed and dresser but was open to purchasing additional pieces to ensure the cohesiveness of the look.

WHAT SHE GOT:  Havenly designer Shelby G. worked to give Julia that serene “coastal” feel with a little punch.

Julia loved both concepts so much she ended up combining them!  She made the decision to keep both of her current nightstands and lamps but splurged on new bedding from Serena & Lily and a collection of darling throw pillows and accessories from PBTeen and Pottery Barn.

“I love how the design of our space is clean, bright, and open, but really expresses our personality,” Julia shared with us after the design had been implemented.  “I like how our furniture isn’t matchy matchy but gels into one cohesive room.”

THE REAL DEAL:  This bedroom design is comforting and tranquil yet still reads undeniably Julia.

Cheerful spaces like this preppy chic bedroom don’t have to live only in the blogosphere. You’re only a quick survey away from designing your own take-my-breath-away space.
