Teen Bedroom Reveal: Grown Up Glam

We shared on social media this fun, SURPRISE reveal for a sweet girl's thirteenth birthday. And as always, YOU, our faithful followers swooned right along side us and wanted the inside scoop on so many details.


Well, as promised, here are the details that helped to pull all the room details together!


Let's remember where we started, shall we?

This bedroom had a great neutral wall but the client was ready to give her daughter a forever room to grow with her over time. When everything was stripped away, all that was left was her bed frame and mattress.

When I created the plan for this room, one thing I focused on was layout. As much as a love to get started shopping right away, I find that I am much more effective with my time and the client's budget when I have a plan in mind. Once I knew how I wanted the room arranged, I could use the room's new design plan and measurements and dive right in to shopping!


One question we get asked a lot is, "Where do you find your items?" It does vary from project to project. We take budget into consideration along with what the client's priorities are. That being said, we shop online and in stores. And one reason online doesn't scare us is the power of a good (or bad) review! There are a slew of other tips we use when we buy online that we will be sharing later but for now, let's continue with the good.


This room!

Notice the arrangement. This is the view right when you walk into the room now versus the bed being tucked in the corner. This gives the room an open feel and lets all that natural light stream through the big windows.


Another priority for this room was storage. Our client wanted her daughter to have more space. Adding two nightstands on either side of the bed was a simple solution. I loved the brass details in both the pulls and the end caps on the legs of the nightstand. It truly is the small details that really take a standard piece of furniture to the next level.


Every young girl needs a work space in her room. Whether it is for homework, a place to do her make up or another area for a friend to hang out, there was the perfect blank wall waiting to be dressed up.

This dead space definitely needed filled. Too much empty space in a room can make a room feel cold and even small. There was plenty of room for some additional furniture to be added without cramping the room.

So much better, am I right?


It truly was such a fun room to shop for and Emily and I had a blast styling. Even more special was being there for when our client's daughter got home to see the space! It was such a treat for us to see her reaction!


This big print over the bed was a simple way to create a focal point. I am a sucker for a great sign and the script on this one is so pretty.


A peek from a different angle...






This room was such a fun project for us! I think children and teen spaces are something Emily and I both love doing!


Until the next project!
