These Accessories Will Suit Your Daughter From Tweens Through Teens
Currently Featured in: US
If I could design girls' rooms all day, I would be one happy designer! Anything goes in a young girl's room, especially color and pattern. A mix of investment pieces with inexpensive items, graphic elements and practical storage solutions will result in a timeless room to last from the tween to adult years. — Vanessa from Decor Happy
MP3 Alarm Clock Docking Station and Speakers - $59.95
This combination alarm clock/iPod charger with speakers is just perfect for your tune-loving girl.
Traditional Bedding - $125
What girl, young or old, doesn't love Kate Spade? The embroidered dragonflies and grosgrain ribbon trim on this Egyptian cotton duvet cover add a note of whimsy.
Contemporary Upholstery Fabric - $21.95
Fabric is always a great jumping off point for a color scheme. I would upholster a curvy headboard with this beautiful, floral fabric. The turquoise, citrine and gray-brown colors are fresh and pretty.
If you are a savvy DIY-er, you could easily create a custom headboard. If not, an upholsterer can make your vision a reality. I love the simple curve of this one.
Traditional Nightstands And Bedside Tables
Solid wood pieces are an investment that can be handed down from one generation to the next. These Canadian-made bedside tables have ample storage, and the wood tone warms up any space. The clean, simple Shaker design gives this piece longevity.
Contemporary Dressers Chests And Bedroom Armoires - $799
The gently bowed drawer fronts on this dresser add femininity and grace.
Two Tone Round Mirror - $315.01
I would hang this large, gorgeous gold tone mirror over the dresser.
Eclectic Rugs - CAD 1,800
When I saw these Second Life rugs at ELTE, I couldn't help but wonder whose home they had graced during their 40-plus year lifespan. Each traditional Turkish rug is stripped of its color and given a new life with vibrant dyes in a rainbow of hues.
Contemporary Pillows - $39.95
I would place two of these velvet cushions in front of plain white pillow shams on the bed.
Eclectic Pillows - $50
This pillow adds a graphic punch to the bed when placed in front of the two chartreuse velvet pillows.
This chandelier is a touch on the expensive side but I'm sure you could get the look for less. It's glam and edgy at the same time and will bring sparkle to a bedroom.
Teramo Curtain Panels - $79.95
Every room can use a little zigzag. I would hang these drapes using hooks on the back tabs, which will create the look of a pleat rather than the rod pocket. They will look more luxe and less casual as a result.
Contemporary Desks - $299
If the bedroom has space for it, a desk or vanity provides additional storage and a place to apply makeup or do homework. This one is simple, practical and inexpensive to boot.
Traditional Chairs - $299
A comfortable upholstered chair seat will ensure your girl spends the time needed on her studies!
Eclectic Bookcases Cabinets And Computer Armoires - $594
A place to store books and display accessories and treasures is a must in a young girl's room. I love the distressed wood and white lacquer finish on this piece.
Mediterranean Ottomans And Cubes - $249
A Moroccan pouf adds that well-worn, traveled feel to a space and provides seating when friends are over. These are sewn by hand by artisans in Marrakesh.
LUXE FUME Diptyque Print by Anne Harwell - $40
Every room needs art! These perfume bottle prints will up the girl factor in any room.
Eclectic Accessories And Decor - $49
This jewellery holder reminds me of a tiered cake stand. It has plenty of space to store earrings, necklaces and the like.
