Canopy Bed Teen Bedroom















 

Beachy Vibes Bedroom

First order of business in this bedroom was to paint all of the walls white. It’s the perfect backdrop for all of the soft pastel colors relating to a beachy look and feel. A desk in a teen’s room is so nice to have a spot to get ready and/or do their make-up at. This desk from West Elm was the perfect size and look for the space.

Light strands adds whimsy to this teen space and these jute poufs from CB2 allow for much needed extra seating.




Having somewhere to store all of their ‘stuff’ helps to keep the room organized and clutter free. This simple bookshelf and these baskets from IKEA fit just right on this wall.

A coat rack is a great place to hang hats, scarves or backpacks in a teen’s space. And these beachy prints from Reality & Retrospect lend so much to the beachy feel of her bedroom.




This rattan light from Serena & Lily and nightstand from Wayfair were key pieces in the design. The nightstand added necessary storage and the light added necessary drama.

Finally this daybed is a great space for my client and her friends to chill on and adds a comfortable and cozy feel to the space.




Pink, Pink, Pink

This pink bedroom for a tween was a small space with big impact. Blush colored walls and rose colored ceilings with crown to give them a finished look were the perfect backdrops for black and gold accents.






The gold dot decals added the perfect touch of whimsy to the space to make it fun and break up some of the pink.

Bedding and pillows from Pottery Barn Teen were great black, white and gold accents to compliment the pink. Can’t go wrong with kitty pillows!!






A pink fur pouf was just what we needed for extra seating- cute and comfy.

This bookshelf added a touch of glam and corralled all of her keepsakes and necessities.

Adding a medallion to the ceiling to accentuate this gold quatrefoil chandelier made the room even more glamorous.






The black and white striped rug from Ikea is a great accent to all of the pink and adds a cute bold pattern as well.

Double closets meant we didn’t need a dresser so we maximized space in the closet by adding built-ins and baskets and drawers from the Container Store to keep everything organized.

So happy with the result of this Pink Glam tween bedroom!

Colorful Eclectic Tween Bedroom

This bedroom was a labor of love for a girl after my own heart! She loves color, simplicity and uniqueness so I was happy to deliver her just that. She had a few requests such as a desk, sheer canopy above the bed and seating for friends, but other than that, she left it to me.

She already had some great pieces for me to work with such as this adorable hot pink record player and cute pink typewriter pictured below. These prints above the dresser from Reality and Retrospect were the perfect addition for a colorful, eclectic space.





This Ikea dresser just needed a refresh by adding these gold handles from Rejuvenation. The black and white striped pin board on the wall by the bed was made from sound board purchased at a local hardware store then covered in fabric using a staple gun. It’s the perfect way to get the size of pin board (or ‘idea’ board as I like to call it) you want as well as much less expensive.

A desk area is one of the items I think every teenager needs in their bedroom, especially if they have room for it. This desk doubles as a vanity since we hung a mirror above it. Having a space of their own to do homework and make-up is a must for a teenager.





Fun little signs and sayings make the space personal and whimsical- something else I think is so important for a tween’s bedroom. I definitely have to think more playful when I’m designing these spaces so it feels comfortable for a younger client.

A luxurious bed and ombre painted accent wall were the highlights in this space. Thank goodness the homeowner is a creative genius- she did an amazing job with the ombre wall!

Little touches like flamingo sheets and a light up ‘hello’ sign gave this teen bedroom that eclectic and fun feel that I was going for.





Such a fun space for a FABULOUS girl!!!!

Craft and Sewing Room Organization

This craft and sewing room already came with great bones- plenty of cabinet and storage space, a cute and functional design and the most darling of arts and crafts projects just waiting to be displayed or organized. When I have a space like this to work with, the first thing I do is think about what works to have out in the open so that it can be seen and used often and what works best displayed behind closed doors corralled in bins with proper labels.





Obviously the sewing station needed to be displayed and easily accessible with a lot of room around it to work on. A clean surface and a bright space is ideal for crafting and sewing and this space has both.

The cabinet right above the sewing machine was the perfect place to store fabrics where they can be seen easily when the doors were open. When organizing I try to keep items related to each other as close as possible to one another.

Open shelving and drawers right next to the sewing station stores items like thread and other sewing machine necessities. Cute baskets not the open shelves like these crocheted ones from The Container Store are perfect for storing such items.

This side of the room was also used for gift wrapping and party supplies. I purposely geared half of the craft room toward the adults needs and the other half for the kids needs. In the cabinets right above these supplies are small gifts to keep on hand for last minute gift giving.





Then in the cabinet just to the left holds more gift wrapping necessities as well as party supplies. I used these clear bins from The Container Store so it was easier to see the items inside each container.

The other half of the room is the perfect crafting station for the kids. Easy to reach bins and paper holders make crafting easy and accessible in this area.

Using a variety of baskets and containers to hold different items keeps the space looking colorful and interesting but neatly organized in order to keep the area functioning best. I love displaying projects in craft areas as well in order to inspire and uplift those working in the space.




It’s important for kids to have a place to store their own personal projects so these baskets in the open shelving from The Container Store did just that beautifully.

In the cabinets above the open workspace we corralled more craft items into separate bins so it would be easy for the kids to find what they needed when working on a project.

Wall storage like this from Ikea makes it easy to keep a cleaner surface for crafting as well as help kids know where to put items when they are finished using them.

These stained glass stars made by the homeowner,s father were the icing on the cake hanging in the window. It’s personal touches like these that make a space feel the most like their own.

Girls Updated Bedroom

girlsroom

I knew it was time to update my girls room when my toddler kept getting out of her toddler bed to sleep with her big sister- or into our bedroom to complain about something! I remember sharing a bed with my sister when I was young so I figured we’d try a bigger bed for the both of them. It worked!!! Since the day we got the bigger bed it’s been such a huge improvement- she stays in bed, her and her sister get to bond and she even gets excited for bedtime- hallelujah!!!

girlsbed

Choosing the bed frame was key and this one from Overstock didn’t disappoint! It said that it was a dark brown metal on their website (which it is) but really looked black to me which was what I was wanting. I let my 8 year old daughter help with the bedspread decision but we both fell in love with this colorful balloon one from The Land of Nod . This Plum & Bo pom pom duvet is from Urban Outfitters and was a no brainer- I’m obsessed with pom poms and it screamed ‘little girls room’ to me!

girlsbookwall

My girls love to read their books, and with books as cute as these I figured I’d make them a decorative feature in their room. These thin shelves from Ikea are actually picture ledges but work great for books. I love that they are visible and easy to access so the girls think to read them often. The art is a custom piece by Breinholt Design- it couldn’t work better in the space.

girlsdresser3

With limited space in the room I had to choose a dresser that was skinny and wide. This one from West Elm was the perfect fit.

girlsdresser2

I used small details like this vintage tea set and their own artwork to personalize the space.

girlsdressertop

These touches were added by the girls themselves!!!

girlshook

I love having hooks in kid spaces to corral clothing items and stray toys.

girlslamp

And I think gold accents, like this lamp from Target work perfectly with the peaches, pinks and reds and black accents.

Finally, this black and white rug is by Nate Berkus from Target that I purchased last year. I thought carrying the black and white accents to the floor was the perfect addition to complete their room!
