Glamorous Teen Bedroom on a budget

Hello and welcome back! I’m excited to share an inexpensive glamorous teen bedroom I worked on a few weeks ago. The room belongs to the youngest and only girl of three kids. She is a typical preteen, 13 going on 30, and made it known she loved Marilyn Monroe.

The design challenge was to create a more grown up tween room. It required “glam”, Marilyn Monroe, and a strict budget of $500. I knew the room had to have touches of vintage, sophistication and a touch of glamour. (No pink teen room here).

I wanted to make a big impact with color so I had to be creative with the use of paint.  The only request the client had, “no pink”! With that in mind, I began with selecting the color scheme.

 Prior to the Make-Over

 The room required some TLC. It was unorganized and chaotic. The walls were bright pink and in desperate need of a change. Appropriately, they were painted Serious Gray by Sherwin William and made a world of difference.

Just as important, a faux 3” crown molding was painted using the color Tricorn Black by Sherwin Williams to add a pop of color. This cost a few dollars and made the largest impact in the room. I love that something small like paint, makes such a BIG difference.

After the Make Over

The room I designed is Glammed-up, sophisticated, and organized.

I added a Trendy Upholstered Headboard to the room.

I added new bedding, accessories, a throw, wall art, and decorative pillows.

A vintage Gold starburst clock was placed above the headboard and a mirrored end table was positioned next to the bed with a white & gold enamel table lamp for additional lighting needed for night-time reading.

Final Thoughts….

In the end, this room required a few DIY projects to stay in budget, but it turned out great! Don’t you agree?

I love sharing my designs with you, I hope you find inspiration and enjoyed this transformation.

On to my next design adventure….
