Teen Daughter Room

October 6, 2013 in Design Dilemma
HI! We recently moved into our first house & would like help designing our daughter's room. She is 13, will be 14 soon, and likes modern styles. She has lots of black and white things, but wants to add a pop of color. Her favorite color is blue - teal or tourquise. The room is 9'9" x 14'2" but we lose 29" off the 14 for her closet. So it's really only about 9'9" x 11'11". All furniture is new, so it must stay. We are open to new placement though. We painted the walls a light gray, as a neutral background. She wants a black area rug and we thought about stenciling the wall currenlty behind her bed. We got the duvet that's on her bed because it fit her idea of a travel theme, as it lists places all over the world. Let me know what ideas you have.

Paint one wall bright teal and add a teal chandelier in the middle if the room (a white one with teal accents) and maybe add a zebra print instead of a black rug (more fun, less morbid)

I'm sure you can do a more thorough search than I did and fine an adorable chandelier

Hi!

This is probably a silly question but did you have your daughter look through photos here on Houzz? Here is a search in case she hasn't yet -- http://www.houzz.com/%22teen-bedroom%22

I create these map paintings that show where you are, where you want to go, and where you have been. I use the names of the cities and juxtapoz them with the longitude and latitude of each city. I can create them in the red pictured, green, or blue. I also create them in three different sizes for three different prices.

Oh what fun and how nice to have a mom that cares so much! Congrats on your new home as well. Was wondering...what is under the wall to wall carpet? Are you planning to pull it up or place the black rug on it?

Giaksch, cute wallpaper & chandelier idea. I have attached a picture of the poster we just got for her room. I'm thinking I will pull the blue out of it. I've looked on Houzz quite a bit & she has looked a little. She finds things she likes but it doesn't all go together.

Thanks Amy. The carpet was installed just before we moved in, so it will be there a while. Maybe in the future, we will redo the flooring on the main floor. She just wants something really soft, that will coordinate with the rest of the room.
