Interior Design of a Teen Room

This past week, I’ve been busily working on a teen room in conjunction with my new interior design service, ‘Ready, Set, School: Your Child’s Room Grows Up’. It is so much fun to design a young person’s room. Here are some of the design inspiration and “during” photos.

Teen Room

After meeting with the client (aka mom), I put together a design concept board. This teen wanted turquoise walls and had chosen her grey and yellow bedding.

This is the teen girl’s room in progress. We still need to organize and accessorize.

Niche Dresser - West Elm

With the bright color,  we grounded the room with dark furnishings, including this dresser from West Elm. The brushed steel drawer pulls are so modern.

Jay Desk - West Elm

The Jay desk was her mom’s, but now that mom is getting a whole new office, we are moving the desk to her daughter’s room. It’s the perfect size, scale and color for the room. We will add white shelves to pop against the turquoise wall to store her keepsakes and trophies.

Post It Board - PB Teen

If your teen is begging for black and you can’t bear the thought of a black room, why not add some black accessories like these post-it boards, lamp or ‘say what?’ chalkboard vases from Pottery Barn Teen?

Fun brightly colored desk accessories will tie the look together.

NAL Coat Tree – CB2

I think this Coat Tree from CB2 which is called NAL for “not a lamp” is a bit cheeky and would help a teen girl keep her coat and scarves organized – more fun, less nagging.

Blue Flokati Rug - PB Teen

This plush turquoise blue flokati rug would be the perfect place to sink your toes in when (finally…) getting out of bed on those cold school mornings.

I love to hear from you.

I’m still searching for just the right valance – any ideas?

What’s your favorite idea for decorating your teen’s room?

    This looks great!
    You are right, it is SO fun to design for teenagers. They really have a sense of adventure.

    Great looking room!

    I like that desk a lot, particularly – partially because it’s a re-used, elegant piece that fits in really well with all of the new pieces. And also, smaller desks always make for less clutter. I should know. I was the owner of an ENORMO-desk at one point, which became a veritable Ellis Island for bits of stray paper and a myriad of other assorted junk. Less clutter means a better looking room, and a more viable place to get homework done, too.

    Cheers for the post!
