It's that time of year when Texas antique lovers head to Round Top to pick through trash and treasures, but you don't have to make a pilgrimage to the antiques hub to get a vintage-chic look at home. Sisters Amie and Jolie Sikes of beloved Round Top design destination Junk Gypsy have created their third bedroom collection with PBteen.
Centered around two carefully crafted themes dubbed Rustic Glam and Sunrise Lodge, the 40-piece collection includes furniture, home décor, and various accessories from jewelry to handbags with faux fur, suede, fringe and other distinctly Texas elements that define the Sikeses' signature style.
"We drew inspiration from so many things, from teens of course, because their spirit is wild and free, which we hope they never tame. We were also very inspired by the Southwestern vibe—rustic, cozy prints and distressed leathers. We kept true to our core Junk Gypsy themes of glitter, velvet, inspirational quotes, and we always add a Texas flair in everything we do," said the Sikes sisters via email.
The Rustic Glam bedroom is characterized by a luxe yet simple color scheme of white and tan, while Sunrise Lodge is imbued with the rich hues of desert lands. Prices range from $19.50 to $1,299 with standout bedroom staples like a saddle-brown microsuede Chesterfield loveseat.
"We love color, and knew we wanted this line to appeal to boys and girls alike, so we created palettes that reflect a cozy, rustic vibe for boys and girls. The Bohemian Quilt is so fabulous because it mixes a southwestern vibe with velvet—what could beat that?" said Amie and Jolie Sikes.
In a charitable touch, a portion of the proceeds for three of the pieces—the Wanderer duffle, fringe backpack and fringe pouch—will be donated to the Wild Horses of America Foundation, which helps improve the quality of life of the nation’s 50,000 wild horses and burros held in short-term and long-term holding pens.
"We’re lucky to have the opportunity to design for teens. It's the age where dreams are born, where aspirations take flight, and when you start figuring out who you are and what you want to become—the world is at your doorstep and nothing is stopping you," said the Sikeses. "We want teens to dream big and not be afraid to blaze their own trail. We want their room to reflect their personality—starry-eyed and big-hearted, with a little glitter thrown in.
Select Junk Gypsy for PBteen pieces are available online now and the full collection rides into stores on Oct. 21.
