A bedroom for a little princess

Cinderella would be hard pressed to image a bedroom more suited to a princess. Soft, pastel pink sheers are looped across a window rod like rosy clouds floating through the sky. Before the full-height mirror, a dressmaker's mannequin awaits only the appearance of a few magical mice armed with needles, thread and a commitment to see their friend arrive at the evening's grand ball in a fashionable gown.

Cascading from a crown above the bed, pink and taupe sheers frame a white headboard and a whimsical collection of pillows, toss cushions and bolsters. Plenty of ruffles and soft patterns here. For sharing confidences with a best friend or filling the pages of a diary, what better place than a private loft reached by wrought-iron ladder?
