Teen cottage bedroom decor: Style, functionality and happy colors

Mix and Match approach to design in the Itsy Bitsy CottagePeace, Love and Sandy Feet!

That’s what lake life is all about, right? When you live on the lake you need all the sleeping spaces you can get for your visitors. Here’s another peek into my daughter Chloe’s room where nothing really matches but it all seems to go together! Fun graphic colors and whimsical nautical decor accents the Charlie daybed and Trundle ( click on the link to see the bed options… comes in black too.) from Raymour & Flanigan. I fell in love with this classic design and the subtle feminine curves that can transition into any decor style. The trundle daybed can also double as pullout storage. Perfect for lounging around and when it’s “light out” we pull out the trundle for some lake air zzz’s.

When it came to accessorizing Chloe’s room we took the mix and match approach to design. We accessorized the bed with a bright yellow matelasse bedspread, patchwork quilt set and accents pillows from HomeGoods, Pottery Barn and needlepoint pillows from India Handicraft.  Chloe decided on the wall to be painted in Offshore Mist by Behr Paints, a soft dusty light blue. We added nautical inspired navy blue and white striped curtains from HomeGoods, a fun graphic carpet, hand-painted wooden oars, colorful graphic artwork and storage cubes to make this small 9′ by 9′ room packed with graphic interest.

Chloe’s helped painted her grandfather’s childhood dresser gloss white and added vintage inspired glass knobs .  A $3. garage sale-find rattan shelf gets a fresh coat of Rustoleum lime green paint. It’s a perfect place for shoes, extra storage, or a charging station for her phone. We layered the room with more stripes by adding an acrylic lamp and chartreuse lamp shade from Target. A pair of thrift store dog bookend get a modern look with turquoise spray paint. A mini adirondack chair and glass monogram tray holds her jewelry at night. Wall art includes initial indian patchwork C and B and a watercolor Carpe Diem artwork from HomeGoods remind us all to “Seize the Day.”
