Today I wanted to show you a project I’m working on…a design for a teenage girl’s bedroom. This sixteen year old loves hanging out in her bedroom, but is over the bright colors, disorganized mess and lack of a cohesive look that her bedroom is currently sporting.
Here’s her bedroom now…
That sad dressers needs some new knobs…Stat!!
She has a great sense of style when it comes to fashion…preppy + bohemian.
Think J. Crew meets Anthropologie.
She wants a space that is:
serene…but with pops of color
grown up…but girly
tailored…but with some flirty accents
preppy + bohemian
Here’s the design board I created for her:
We chose the Watercolor Peony wallpaper from Anthropologie
to go on the wall behind her bed, and the other three walls will be painted a very pale, muted blue-gray.
I recommended painting her current bed using Annie Sloan’s chalk paint
in French Linen. Her bedside table will be painted a shade of blue (coordinating with the wallpaper).
After reconfiguring the floor plan, we added a pair of bookcases to provide plenty of storage. Shuttered doors will corral clutter.
A monogrammed pillow in bright pink and matching tufted ottoman add some punch to the white bedding, while a beaded chandelier, carved wooden mirror and natural baskets add organic texture.
Art is from Michelle Armas
. We’ll give her dresser a fresh coat of white paint and find some pretty knobs. White curtains with pink tassels and a neutral armchair with flirty pleats provide those feminine, fun details. A mercury glass table lamp brings sparkle. Knowing she is a HUGE dog lover, I couldn’t resist the dachshund bookends from Jonathan Adler…aren’t they cute?
Looking forward to seeing it all come together!
