PROJECT DETAILS

The Project: Transforming a kid’s bedroom into one suitable for a teen

The Clients: A mom and her 15-year-old daughter who wants an age-appropriate bedroom

The Designer: Emily Mughannam, Decorist Elite designer

The Budget: $5,000


"She wants to make the room her own, more grown up. She’s 15, and the room has been the same since she was in elementary school!"


CLIENT’S REQUESTS:

  • Use some of her favorite colors: blue, turquoise, green
  • Keep the twin beds and at least one of the desks
  • Add a small couch, nightstand, maybe a vanity table and cool chair
  • Make this room a great space to hang out in

EMILY'S DESIGNER NOTES:

  • Taking the wall color from mint to a sophisticated blue adds polish and maturity.
  • Painting the bed frames black and adding in other black accents through the pillows, artwork and desk chair infuse a fun (and fresh!) graphic pop to the room - I kept the rest of the palette minimal with cream, white and gold (i.e, the lamps, leather pouf and printed storage bench)
  • I think she will love the two new lounge areas, including the luxe, velvet settee and hanging egg chair next to the bookshelves, which are anchored by a large hand-loomed rug - and the poufs can be used for extra seating or as ottomans.
  • The modern art is a great juxtaposition to the traditional space and adds a more youthful approach (yet, it’s still sophisticated enough for guests—and when she returns from college!)
