Over the course of the last several months, I’ve had the pleasure of working on a project for some dear friends of ours who just made a cross-country move back to our neck of the woods. They still owned their home here and had been renting it out for the last many years. Having left years ago with two little ones and now returning with 4…we had some fun work cut out for us giving the house a make-over and getting it ready for 4 very sweet girls! With twin tween girls who are sharing an upstairs room, bedroom and loft space as their bedrooms, I asked the twins what they wanted in their spaces…colors, etc., and did my best to deliver. Here’s a glimpse at the first bedroom. The requests: purple and turquoise.
We went with a bright blue on the walls, and wide horizontal stripes on the wall the bed was on for a fun focal point.
This space was a bit of a design challenge because it is a room with a gabled ceiling. There are two shorter walls…one side with a window and two closets, and one on the opposite side with a bedroom door and a bathroom door, and then two slightly longer walls both with short ceiling height (about 6 ft) and attic entrances on both of those walls. Whew! Lots to work around. A desk was a must for this budding artist, and with little extra wall space, a daybed and desk took up any room for a dresser to store clothes. To help with storage, we had closet systems in and turned what was once an empty, drywall box under the window, into a built in storage unit with drawers and a window seat.
I wanted to be able to bring in other colors to the room, and all the ready-made bed sets I could find were all strictly blue and purple, so I decided to have some custom bedding made. I found these darling fabrics at JoAnn Fabrics and mixed and matched some fun patterns. I wanted to bring in tons of fun color and lots of texture.
You all know I’m not afraid of a little spray painting, so I found that cute ampersand at HomeGoods…but it was the wrong color. Nothing a little bottle of Krylon can’t fix. 😉 .
This desk is the perfect spot for homework, paired with a cute and comfy chair to tie in the purple. I spray painted the Dream sign from HomeGoods, and the “E” initial in a glittered purple spray paint. A blue clock, colorful boxes for neat storage, and a handmade pom pom garland dressed up the desk.
Be sure to check out the other tween bedroom I did for this cute client’s twin sister. A preppy and colorful navy, pink and kelly green room. Here’s a sneak peek

So fun to see these pictures. It turned out just perfect! You are the best, Tammy.
Thanks so much for trusting me Mandi! I have been having way too much fun! 🙂 Any excuse to get to hang out with you more! 😉
I love this, Tammy! What a great combination of colors and patterns. One very lucky girl!
Thanks Courtney! It was a fun room to do! 🙂
Can you please tell me the names of the paint colors you chose for the walls (blue and white)? My daughter wants this exact color and has been looking everywhere for the color she wants. Beautiful job, thank you!
I love your blog!!! And this room is so cute – Will you please tell me what paint that is (on the walls?) Thank you!
Thank you so much!! 🙂 That paint is called Weathered Glass and it’s from Lowes. I believe that it was a Valspar paint (I can’t remember exactly) but hopefully they can help you if you have the name. 🙂 Have fun painting!
I thought I left a comment before but can’t see it so I don’t know what happened. This room is so beautiful you did such a wonderful job. My daughter keeps asking me to find out what the blue color was you used on the walls (this is the exact color she wants for her room).
Thank you so much for your sweet comment! The name of that paint is weathered glass. I bought it at Lowes. I’m pretty sure it was a Valspar paint, but hopefully, even if not, they can search for it by name in their computers. 🙂 I hope that helps! 🙂 Happy Painting! Tammy
Who makes that desk? It is adorable!
Duh, just read your entry and saw you got the desk at PB Teen. Never mind my question earlier. 😛
The room is precious! Love it!
Simply adorable. Can you tell me the name and maker of the blue paint that’s on the walls?
Nevermind Tammy. I just saw your response above. LOL sorry
beautiful rom- the colors and accessories are gorgeous- did you make the chair?
Hello, beautiful room, I was just wondering what the desk was called or where it was from as I think that would look great!
My daughter LOVES this desk! I’m not at all familiar with this site, but by chance, is it available for purchase? She’s pined it and sent it to me. 🙂
I looked its from pb teen 🙂
Where did you get that’s desk because it is beautiful!!
Hello, I saw your design on Pinterest and I am OBSESSED!!!! I was just wandering what the name for the colorful dotted pillows where called. Thank you
Hi Ariel! Thank you so much for your kind comment! So, I had those pillow covers made for this room…but I found the fabric at JoAnn’s. I know that isn’t a huge help, but hopefully they will still have the fabric! 🙂
Good luck! 🙂
