Tween to Teen Bedroom Ideas
At some point in a young girl’s life they love pink and peace signs. My daughter Chloe was no exception. The more pink the better and I embraced her love of color and pattern and ran with it. The fun bright colors and graphic elements started rolling in and her hand-painted pastel colored painted baby furniture was sent up to the attic. We started with a daybed and trundle and added pieces either homemade, hand me down, or thrifted. It was colorful and fun and the heart/peace sign movement lasted until Chloe came to me and said “Mom, I’m not into color so much anymore. I like white!” GASP! I knew that day would come. I had 12 years of decorating the way that I wanted and now it was time for her to have her say. Here’s a look back at how her room was and what we have planned for her teen room makeover:
I painted a huge 5 by 5 feet canvas combining the heart, peace sign and her name. A large C marquee letter light rescued from a restaurant remodel that we converted into a night light. Bright patterned pillows, bedding and Romero Britto art fill the room.
A white hand me down dresser from a client, black and white accessories, chartreuse pom pom window panels, thrift store dog bookends that I spray painted and more Britto signed art.
Upcycling Thrifted Furniture and Decor
A thrifted hard top suitcase meets a TV table and make for the perfect nightstand. Lime green paint and a raspberry colored handle.
A super sized doll house that my father made got painted turquoise and became Chloe’s bookcase. A hand painted box from my art show circuit days hold treasures.
Shopping for Teen Furniture
When it came time to discuss Chloe’s new room makeover we turned to our friends at Raymour and Flanigan. I knew that she could find the sophisticated style and I love the quality that would last her for years to come. As in all my design approaches we chose a mix and match of whites, blacks and golds with pops of color. We’re both excited to share our vision of her ideal teen room and full reveal in a few days. Feel free to click on the links below to take you to all the pertinent information.
Full size Hawthorne Bed in Gold. We love the feminine lines of this linen upholstered bed. Comes in so many great color choices. It was almost to difficult to choose.
Santos Chair– Chloe loves the black and white theme still so we went this cute compact polka dotted chair for the corner. A perfect place to put all her clothes and pillows.
Paris Lamps– This great lamp is the most beautiful color green and has gold accents. So pretty and affordable that we had to get two!
Elio Chair We just had to splurge on this amazing gold metallic desk chair. Can you say “LOVE!” We thing that we’ve hit gold with this desk chair! :)
Foo Dogs- These turquoise lion figurines can be used as book ends and in China are “guard lions”. To find these and other great accessories click on the link!
