A bachelorette pad is the ultimate feminine solo space. The challenge with most bachelorette pads is achieving a level of sophistication while still maintaining a high dazzle factor. Designer Trish Johnston shows us how to achieve flirty girly style that's fearless yet tasteful and on trend.
Wallpaper sets the tone
The yellow 'Wisteria' wallpaper by Farrow and Ball reads warm. It's a soft feminine selection that is not as obvious as pink for a bachelorette pad — it's more "girl grown up". This soft yellow also works well with mixed metallics so you can go even warmer (add gold) or cool off the look (add silver/chrome). The wallpaper gives the room a very light, airy and almost sunroom feel.
Consider wicker chairs
Natural rattan adds warmth and texture to the room. It's a neutral so you can dress it up with splashes of colour or keep it subtle with layers of white. Very versatile and also a classic.
Add white accents for a contemporary touch
The white lacquered stools are a great solution for extra seating. They can be used for entertaining and for desk work in this space. The white lacquer accents add a bit of coolness to the warm room and make the room read more contemporary.
Glam it up with a statement light fixture
The right hanging light fixture adds a bit of glam. It's the signature statement of a woman's touch. Lighting is the jewelry of the room!
A chaise is a must have
No bachelorette pad is complete without a chaise. It's the perfect place to perch for a good read or cat nap. A chaise is very versatile as it has no back so you can move the piece around when entertaining large groups of girlfriends! It can also be used as a crash pad should one of your gal pals have one too many martinis.
