School officially ended last week of for us and it is so nice to have no schedule and have my favorite people hanging out at home with me for the next few months. I love teaming up with Marty from A Stroll Thru Life and participating in her fun home tours each season.
If you are new to my blog or joining me from Heather’s beautiful summer home decor tour over at Setting for Four, welcome!
I spent some time last week up at a current client remodel project, the Midway Modern Farmhouse, working on some cabinet changes and a few other things and I had to kind of chuckle as I wrote this post. It is amazing to me that in a matter of 6 months I will have helped to completely gut a large old home inside and out, design everything and make it new again…and at the same time here I am struggling to simply get Ashley’s room decorated in under a year. To think that just under two years ago this was a completely different house…this room has come a LONG way and I’m excited to share it with you today!
I hope that if you are searching for cute room ideas for a teenage girl in your life this post and our bedroom makeover will be a help! When we finally finished the construction part of the remodel of this home, it took me awhile to decide exactly what I wanted to do with this bedroom. They want something “grown-up” looking, but at the same time they are still kids and have tastes that aren’t super sophisticated. Fortunately, Ash is pretty trusting and amenable to my ideas, so I asked her what she really wanted and she let me take it from there.
Because I was working with two pieces that would be different to begin with (desk and chest) I knew I wanted them to be similar in size and preferably from the same set. I wasn’t going for a matchy-matchy look with the whole room, but since I knew I was going to be using a different bed and dresser, I didn’t want there to be TOO much going on.
I didn’t buy them for anything particular at the time, I just knew they were cool, so I grabbed them and figured I would find something to do with them later. Moving into more of a blush color was an easy way to update the pink look and modernize this room.
A lot of girl’s bedroom accessories tend to be more on the younger looking side…especially those in pink, so I found mixing in gold and some gray made it much easier to make it more teenager appropriate too.
I added this pretty gold curtain rod and these blush black out drapes for privacy.
We used this message board to give her a spot above her desk to add more pictures along with doodles and quotes and all kinds of things that she would have otherwise plastered all over her walls. 😉 I love this cute pink globe that brought in another blush element to the top of her desk too.
I added a cute inexpensive jewelry tree, perfect for holding things like necklaces, scrunchies and a few other accessories. It incorporates all of the colors that we wanted to bring into the room and really reminds both of us of an Orange County sunset over the ocean. Ash has been working extra hard to keep her room clean and make her bed every morning since we decorated. 😉 I still want to add a few more pieces of art (you can read about some of my favorites here) and get a full length mirror for the corner next to the dresser, but other than that, I think we are pretty close to being finished!
