Jack and Jill's Bedrooms
Exuding French provincial charm, this girl’s room is designed to please a little lady (and her parents). The crystal post bed is adorned with a Chantilly lace bedskirt and exquisite throw pillows in soft greens, lavenders, ivories, and yellows set against a honey-colored duvet cover with an ornate pink floral pattern. Antique white furniture with hand-painted floral patterns is complemented by a floral chandelier. A floral floor lamp stands next to a cozy swivel chair that’s a perfect place to cuddle up for evening story time.

Things that fly, glide, or zoom by is the theme that ties together the colorful elements of “Jack’s” room. Styled for an energetic youngster of eight or nine years old, the room features classic American-made wooden furniture that allows plenty of room for displaying model planes, cars, bicycles, and motorcycles as well as books and other collectables. “Kids today want people to know who they are and what they like to do,” says owner Roy Estrow of Country Willow. “And we want to give them the space and opportunity to do just that.” Storage space under the captain’s bed and in the wardrobe will also make mom happy when Jack needs room to expand his collection or changes his interests altogether.
