The 3rd + last teen room makeover that I recently finished is ready to share.
Whether for your teen or for yourself, I hope you’ve been inspired by affordable, outside-of-the-box style + creations to create a bedroom space that is unique, meaningful, and stylish. It was a blast to design + create rooms that evoke each of their personalities + interests.

For this last teen bedroom, a girl who is quite the gymnast, I was put to the test to create a fun, colorful, and inviting space filled with bold layers + storage for her many trinkets + awards.
WELCOME TO BEDROOM 3
Come on in and check out the details that make up this new striking + vibrant teen room…
Let’s break it down…
Upon meeting with the 13 year old to discuss the wants + needs for the room, I created this Vision Board to capture the essence of what items would remain + what new items would be added + what she could DIY.
And this is the layout of the room with the furniture plan I created…
Of all 3 rooms, this space felt the easiest to pull together. When I first started the project & spoke with this teen about her vision, the furniture was arranged the same way, which I felt worked best.
The twin bed made of pine with a clear lacquer finish was existing and set under the window. I chose to ‘frame’ the bed by adding new white sheer panels (from Ikea) that I embellished with a fuchsia pom-pom trim on the leading edge. It’s amazing how inexpensive trim can give window panels a high-end, big-impact designer look!

The vibrant paisley bedding was part of the old space and I chose to keep it since it was so pretty. This fabric was the launching element for which the other colors for the room were chosen. Fun, new bright pillows were layered on, which gave the space new life.
On the left side of the bed is a tall bookcase, while on the right is a vanity / desk. Even though the flanking pieces are differing heights, they work well together since they’re the same color of painted white and have similar lines + detailing.
For the bed wall, I chose a deep + striking turquoise paint color, which gives a beautiful + bold backdrop to the crisp white furniture. For the other three walls of the room, I chose a mint hue which isn’t as dominating. The vibrant turquoise + soft mint make a great complimentary pair.
Other engaging colors of fuchsia + orange were introduced in the rug, wall decor, and pillows.
I wanted to add some fun wall decor and because of the tight budget, I thought some DIY creations would be ideal + it would allow this teens talents to shine through. Scouring Pinterest, I found a few cute ideas, one being yarn wrapped letters spelling out her name…
unfortunately I don’t recall the original source for these images. If you know them, please reach out and I’d be happy to share a link!
Here is her DIY version…
One more must for this teen room was to create a spot for her growing collection of ribbons + awards. She is a very talented girl and it’s important to display what she has been rewarded with!
In her previous pad, the awards were scattered around the room and the ribbons were in a box, but now there is a designated place for everything. To the right of the door as you enter, are 2 newly installed white floating shelves for the awards and a simple $5 white curtain rod below to hang the ribbons.
It’s been the perfect solution to display her achievements!
And that’s a wrap. Another satisfied client. And this one was only 13!
