Girly ‘Kara’ Bedroom

Schoolehouse Kara BedroomSchoolhouse is an American lighting, furniture and home accessories brand and shop I have lusted over for ages. The ‘Kara Bedroom’ comes from their stunningly presented lookbook.

It’s feminine, but not too girly. I think it would make a wonderful starting point for an older child’s bedroom, or for an adult! The mixture of white, creams and beige is what I really love about this particular image.
