1. The Modern Princess
For this classically contemporary apartment (above) on New York's Upper East Side, designer Sara Story
gave her client's youngest daughter a clean-lined yet ultra-girly retreat. A metal canopy bed from Room & Board
was draped with a silver print linen from Holland & Sherry
and accessorized with custom pillows made from eyelet-backed fabric.

The English country–inspired aesthetic of legendary decorator Sister Parish
found full expression at her lifelong retreat in Dark Harbor, Maine. "Mother always said, 'If you see a piece of needlepoint for sale, you buy it,'" said daughter Apple Parish Bartlett. A guest room at her summer home is both elegant and inviting, with floral ruffled canopies and crocheted throw blankets on wood four-poster beds. In terms of traditional American decorating, it doesn't get much more iconic than this.(PBteen's Maison Canopy Bed, from $765)3. The Glam Princess
If my daughter ever happened to share my predilection for shades of black, white, and gold, I would try this look on her for size. PBteen's Maison Canopy Bed
is romantic, sweet, and sophisticated enough to take her into adulthood. Now let's just hope her teen years are a lot less rebellious than mine.
