ONE ROOM CHALLENGE- TEEN GIRL'S BEDROOM REVEAL


Hello everyone, Welcome!  I'm so glad you found yourself here today for the reveal of my daughter's Teen Girl's Bedroom Reveal!  If you're new here I'm Jennifer and I have no special title or training other than I like to decorate my home and share it with all of you!  You'll quickly see that I love bold color, mixed and matched patterns, and a mix of new, DIY, and vintage/secondhand items.  People occasionally ask me how I label my style, and honestly I have no idea!  If it catches my eye, it comes home with me and we make it work.  I'm excited to share my latest project with you today!

I'd like to give a huge thank you to Linda, the creator of the One Room Challenge, for all she's done to organize and oversee this challenge.  This is always the best opportunity to tackle a project, get things done, and Linda is a fantastic cheerleader throughout the process!

For the past 6 weeks (literally, I decided to join the challenge the night before it started 6 weeks ago!) we've worked to transform my daughter's bedroom from a little girl's bold, colorful space to a more grown up room that still has color but is a bit more refined. 

If you need to catch up on the process of how we got to this point, check in here-



She wanted to tone down the color from her previous room, but requested that we use the same kelly green that I favor in the rest of our house, a desk, and wood tones.  I requested that we keep the black and white striped wall.  We DID tone down the range of colors from her previous room, but that doesn't mean we have a lack of color and pattern!

pink door, black and white striped wall, green upholstered headboard, wall sconces, vintage bamboo nightstands, black and white crosses rug, crane and canopy linden duvet, monogrammed pillows, large scale floral pillow

Here's a look at where we started.  This was a fun room as she grew, but it's been this way for about 8 years and it was time for a change!

Bed and Curtains Before...


and After!

We reused several things that were already in her room but they might have a new color or purpose.  I also moved some things from around the house into her room, that works out when when you have a similar color palette throughout your home. For example, she really wanted a bench at the end of her bed, and when we couldn't find one that we really liked during this past 5 weeks I gave her the one I've been using  in my bedroom on loan for a while.  ;)


The headboard was a DIY project that I'll be sharing in the near future.  It's the exact color but a different fabric than my headboard- there's no shortage of green beds at the Griffin House!  :)  The bedskirt is also DIY and I love how using the same fabric gives continuity and the appearance of a fully upholstered bed.


We tucked some DIY Pom Pom Baskets under the bench that she can to use store flip flops, books, or whatever tends to land on the floor.


This teen girl in her natural habitat...  :)


Dresser Wall Before...


and After!


I found the dresser several months ago when we first started talking about a room makeover.  We had no design plan at the time, but I knew she wanted wood, so when I saw this from a local antique mall I scooped it up and it's been waiting in the garage.  The door fronts had a design painted on them, so I sanded those and the top (it was in rough shape) and stained them to match.  Although I originally wanted to paint this piece, I'm glad she stuck to her guns of keeping it wood- I love it now!


These gorgeous lamps just arrived two days ago, I can't quit staring at them!  I told you all about the Color Plus Collection from Lamps Plus last week, there are literally over 100 colors and 12 styles to choose from!  I will tell you that the metal base and top come in silver, so I sprayed them gold with my favorite gold paint to match the rest of the room.  One other note, last week I mentioned that I ordered the color "Envy," but that wasn't quite right so these are actually the "Greens" color.

*Thank you to Lamps Plus for providing the lamps!


I picked up the clear jewelry box from Marshall's, and glued an agate slice from Hobby Lobby on top.


I did work very hard this time to pare down what I would normally do on the walls and to accessorize.  She didn't want a lot on the walls or a ton of accessories, so we created 3 main focal points- the headboard wall, the dresser wall, and the gallery wall- and let them shine.




I ordered a large 8x10 rug to layer over the carpet that fills a good portion of the room.



Side Wall Before...



and After!

This was our one opportunity for all the artwork!  We incorporated some of her artwork, friends and family, and a few of her special little mementos that are in the shadow box that my Dad made for me when I was a little girl.   :)  The two watercolor prints (her all time favorite verse and a favorite quote) were painted by one of her best friends, she did an amazing job!



Since starting High School this year, she really has been sitting and working at her desk more than doing homework at the kitchen table like she did in the past.  I miss her in the kitchen but know she's enjoying the quiet of her room for concentrated study time.







And with that, we're D.O.N.E.!!  Well, I shouldn't say that.  No room is every completely finished around here.  There are still a few things I have in mind for this room if and when we get around to it...

  15. Well this is no surprise but absolutely LOVE every single detail of what you've done in here! The green, black and white is such a great backdrop to incorporate other colors - how fun is the blush pink on the doors? And the colorful pillows are just perfect in here, and dare I say your bench looks mighty cozy in that spot!! Best of all, Emily looks SO happy, and what could be better than that!! Beautiful job my friend!

  18. Wow! Just WOW! I adore every last drop of detail in here! You did such a beautiful job with the headboard and bedskirt - you're so talented! I love how clean and crisp the dresser wall looks and the woodtone is perfection. Keeping alllll the art, frames and momentos on one wall would be hard for me too, but you guys nailed it! SO in love :)

  19. So beautiful! I loved the little girl room, but this is so lovely too — very refined and perfect for a sophisticated teen!

  20. Bravo! What a beautiful room!!! I wish I could sew! I adore that dresser! It would be perfect in my home too. Glad she went for the wood tones. GREAT job! Pinned!

  21. Jennifer I love how the room turned out. You have such a great knack for mixing prints and colors. I have a question and hope you can help me. How do I decorate a room around "Grandma's quilt" on the bed as a spread? All kinds of colors and prints and husband insists he sees his mom's quilt as a spread not just folded at the foot of the bed or on a bench. Thanks for any advise you can give me.

  22. Wow - you did an amazing job with this room (not that I am surprised). I love the colors and all the fun details. You always find the best bamboo pieces. I look everywhere and never come across any unless I want to have them shipped from someplace online. The room was pretty before but now it's much more sophisticated. Cheers to another successful ORC!

  24. It was so fun to scroll back and forth to see the before and afters on this space - even with keeping the wall stripes and nightstand, the new look is so different - I love it! I bet she loves it too - a lucky girl to have such a talented mama!

  25. so gorgeous! did the dresser come with those handles or are those an upgrade?

    ReplyDelete
  26. What a great space! I love that when you tone down color, there's still more color than on 90% of the blogs out there :). Yay color!

    ReplyDelete
  27. That is the absolute perfect shade of Kelly Green and why have I never thought to style with disco balls just casually laying around, it's too much fun
