I feel like things are moving at a snails pace around here, but I am happy to say that Ashley’s teen girl bedroom is finally coming together! I feel like I have spent months looking for the perfect girl bedroom sets, and teenage girl room colors…and now it is starting to happen! While it’s not ready for it’s total debut yet, I wanted to talk about one thing I did find and hopefully help you to be able to find as well. Wall art for teenage girl bedrooms can be tricky. You don’t want anything too sophisticated, but you also don’t want it to feel like a baby’s room or little girl bedroom decor. You want it to be girly bedroom decor, but still age appropriate room decor for a teenage girl. Whew! So how do you balance all that? Affiliate links are included in this post.
Ashley’s room is gray with white wainscoting about 2/3 of the way up the wall. I thought about doing one of those awesome teenage wall murals, but with the wainscoting I didn’t think it would look quite right. Some cute teenage bedroom wall stickers are still a possibility…remember these cute gold polka dots? But for now, we are simply sticking with great wall art. She loves pink, and was desperately wanting to incorporate it into the room…but instructions have been clear (from a demanding client, j/k!) that it is to be a “good pink” not baby pink. 😉 Apparently baby pink teenage girl bedrooms are NOT in style. 😉 I have involved her in the decision making process so she feels comfortable with the end result. Teenage girls are opinionated and know what they want, but often need some guidance to help pull the sophisticated teenage bedroom decor ideas together, so it doesn’t look like a hot mess. 😉 I had her browse teenage room ideas on Pinterest so that she could pick out some things that she liked the look of. You can see we are already having some creative differences…notice the tray styled in the first picture, and a few changes that were made when I left the room for a minute in the bottom picture. 😉 lol!

It has been fairly easy to pull together the big furniture pieces, and once we decided on the right shade of pink, it has been easy to get the bedding together too. We are going with this white ruffle duvet cover and shams, this quilt and some amazing pillows and sheets that we found at HomeGoods. We are also adding these drapes to bring more color into the room. This dresser and this bed will transition with her as she gets even older, and I added a desk and smaller dresser on either side of her bed that I’ll show you as soon as the room is all put together. The decor and accessories have been a little trickier to find, but the wall art picture above pulled it all together for us!
My goal for teenage girl bedroom decor is to make it a good transition between being a kid and an adult. I figure, they have the rest of their lives to be boring adults, 😉 so I make sure to add some whimsy and fun into each room I create. You can really achieve this look with the right pictures for teenage bedrooms. The above canvas from HomeGoods has pretty golds and blushes in it, and helped me to give Ashley the beachy/CA feel that she requested. I like to add abstract pieces to every room because they are beautiful and a great way to add color and a hint of sophistication. I can’t link this exact piece since it was a HomeGoods find, but here are a couple of beautiful prints that will help you get the same look (you can order them on canvas too if you like).
To balance that abstract wall art piece, I am planning to add more whimsical pieces. Whimsical teenage art can be a great way to get the look of a more trendy teenage room, with the ability to easily change it up later when the current trend is no longer popular. I know that finding the right wall art pieces for your teenage girl’s bedroom can be a bit daunting, so hopefully this will help. My favorite places to search for wall art for teens are:
One King’s Lane – the size of their collection is truly incredible! Something for every age, and every room in every home.
Anthropologie – Lots of whimsical and textural art pieces here.
Pottery Barn Kids – be sure to check here too! There’s lots of good stuff!
Minted makes things really easy, even having a teen wall art tab for you to search. I like their pieces in particular because they are easily customizable, which makes them perfect for any budget. Choose from unframed or hundreds of framing options, sizes that range from teeny to huge, and often times, there are even color variations available on the prints which is SO nice! Be sure to check out their children’s wall art section too. Many times you can find teen appropriate art prints there too.
I’ve rounded up some of my favorite wall art for teenage girl bedrooms right now. You may see a few of these popping up in Ash’s room soon! 😉 Click on any image to see more information about these pieces.

I hope you are feeling inspired enough by these ideas for wall art for teenage girl bedrooms to tackle that room in your home and make it a special little spot for your sweet girl. The moments that they are under our roof go so quickly, and only speed up during the teenage years. I’m hoping that if I make her room comfortable, she’ll at lest come back for a visit every once and a while once she’s grown. 😉
