A Bold Teen's room


I rather enjoy a bold room although I can't actually live with one. I thought I would indulge myself and play pretend for the day. I could see a young teen's bedroom painted white or maybe even a dark gray if I want to be completely daring. Imperial Trellis wallpaper would make a bold statement on one wall. A fabric headboard in a fun bird fabric could take center stage against the trellis. A simple white duvet with a lovely trim would keep it from being too overwhelming. A nightstand with a modern feel makes me ever so happy. How about a traditional chair in a stand out color for a desk where I am sure homework would be getting done. The striped pendant really could make the whole room all on it's own. Let's not forget a soft spot to rest, I think a faux sheepskin rug would do the trick.

Gray, yellow and green are such a great color combination - I might have to steal some of these ideas from my 'tween who is definitely beyond rocket ships and planets these days!

I think if you painted the walls a really pale grey I could move right in-- that's just the right amount of bold. I love that chair!

Love that bird print!! I'm working on a sunroom with gray walls. I've been trying to find the perfect fabric for the windows I think you may have found it for me!!

Love the colour scheme. It wouldn't work in my house (my house is OLD), but if I had a more modern house it would be amazing!
