Her impulse came from an Apple White doll that sports some of a girl’s favorite shades of red, white and lead gold. The finish outcome comes from a graphic mix of textures, metals and colors.

A much-needed closet was assembled for a space. “We set adult a room so that she could grow into it,” Brown says.
