Emili’s purple and turquoise bedroom was such a fun project for me. What was even better was getting to do ANOTHER totally fun tween bedroom makeover with this colorful room for her sister! 🙂 These girls are just darling and they are truly best friends. What was so fun for me in working on these spaces was getting to know them each a bit better and see the differences in their personalities. The one request for this room from my client was that she wanted green. The wheels were really turning for me with this room. It’s hard to find a whole lot of inspiration for tween girl bedroom ideas that include green. I knew we wanted something super colorful and fun that could grow with here into a teen girl bedroom. This is a very small room. Actually, it’s not really even meant to be a room at all. The family has plans to convert it to an actual bedroom, but for now it is a third floor loft space that shares walls with the entire stairway which means there is no good breaking point for paint. Abbi REALLY wanted to paint her room, but it just wouldn’t have looked right with the way the space is completely open, so I told her if she trusted me I would create a totally fun and colorful tween bedroom design for her, even without putting colorful paint on the walls. Fortunately, she was willing to do that and I think she is happy now. It made her feel extra special to have the editors of J-14 magazine pick up this room for a feature spread in the magazine!

Since we couldn’t paint this small tween bedroom I added 3 inch gold polka dot wall transfers to the back wall to give it some whimsy and help Abbi feel like the walls got some sort of fun treatment. No paint on the walls allowed me to bring color in through painted furniture and fabrics. These nightstands were originally white. Here are some similar ones that are adorable, I love the addition of the shelf. It would be easy to change out the hardware for a gold bar too..so pretty! The dresser was an old one the family already owned that was painted navy, and the knobs were changed out for gold knobs. This navy blue campaign dresser would be gorgeous in a similar space.
The green tufted headboard was the PERFECT focal piece. It was just the color Abbi had been envisioning and served as the jumping off point for the room. It is available in tons of color options, and it’s such a cute bed. So if green isn’t the color you love, check out the other options.
Once again I opted for custom pillows with the exception of the wonderful pillow. This RISE AND SHINE version would be absolutely perfect in this space too. I also had the bedskirt and curtains made from these Pottery Barn Teen sheets.
The dresser was accessorized with a combination of fun finds from HomeGoods, Hobby Lobby, and of course my favorite set of children’s books to decorate with. Tween and teen girls also love to customize their bedroom design, so I added a gold initial to the dresser to personalize the bedroom even a little bit more.
Pink fabric stacking boxes similar to these added extra cute and hidden storage for stuffed animals and other treasures. The ones I have linked come in TONS of colors, so you can mix and match them too.
I found these amazing lamps at Hobby Lobby and even though they were already gold, I gave them a shot of this gold glitter spray paint to glam them up a bit. The gold polka dot sheets were the perfect compliment to the polka dot wall. The duvet cover really helped the pink nightstands pop. Here is a very similar duvet cover. It comes in navy and a few other colors if you prefer something different. The texture added by the navy pouf I found at HomeGoods was amazing! Here is a similar one with great texture.
Cute wall art from Hobby Lobby and HomeGoods, as well as some clipboards spray painted glittery gold give Abbi room to hang her artwork and important papers. I love the idea of using the clipboards and pin boards because teen and tween girls always want to hang things up all over their bedrooms. This gives them a place to do it, without damaging walls.
That lighted marquee heart is so cute…but it started out red. I painted it with some navy acrylic paint to tie it in to the rest of the space. A gold or pink one would be cute as well. Here is a pink heart marquee light. You could easily spray paint it just remember to remove the bulbs first! 😉
