I have a house full of teen girls myself so I’m a little biased! Mostly, they’re pretty awesome and loads of fun! Creating a space for the teen girl in your life is the perfect opportunity to get them involved in a project with you… And get them talking! Let’s face it, that’s the end goal right!?
They’re ready to get out of the tween phase and enter a more sophisticated era. I love the above example of how to do just that! The blush walls are still extremely feminine but leaving the bubble gum pink of yesterday behind. The pop of gold combined with the heather gray headboard contribute to the more “grown-up” feel.
Sadly, couldn’t find the source on this one!
Don’t miss the whimsy of the ceiling stripes in this room! The subtle gray on the walls are a great understated combo so as not to detract from the party on the ceiling. I also love how the bedding sort mirrors the design of the ceiling!
This room is one of mine. With the bed up in the loft, she wanted this space to be a gathering spot for long conversations with friends. The daybed with its tufted mattress was the perfect piece for the center of this space! Still lots of fun going on via the lavender we pulled from the floral wallpaper in the back of the bookshelves.
Let them have a say in the space! Mady saw a loft in a bedroom a few years ago and has been dreaming of one ever since! So, when I designed this house, we made sure we designed a loft special for her!
Here’s another example of a special spot! I love using wallpaper to define a special space! There are so many fun temporary papers on etsy right now! Let her pick out a fun paper to create her own special spot!
This one is truly one of my faves! I love love love the abstract art flanking the bed and the gold reading sconces! Also, look up! That pagoda lantern is so fun! Classy is the word that comes to mind!
I’ve always loved doubling a desk as a bedside table and this one says “sassy sanctuary” fo sho! Am I right!?!
So, what do you think of these sassy sanctuaries? What fun things have you and your daughters come up with?
