Is there any space more sacred than a teenage girl’s bedroom? Ideally, it’s a place for homework, primping, preening, and escaping (from parents). When Clementine (she’s the daughter of Gardenista editor Michelle) was envisioning the design for her new bedroom, which she moved into two years ago, she wanted it to be “peaceful and simple. And dreamy.” We think she succeeded; here’s how you can get the look:

Above: Clementine made the multilayered paper wall flowers herself using a template from the Web (for something similar, go to My Crafty Life) and standard 8-by-11-inch printer paper.

Above: A simple Lab Flask ($8.50 from Amazon) serves as a vase for a sprig of greenery from the garden.
