This colorful mixed pattern tween bedroom is complete and with that, so is another room at my sister’s house! I was so excited when I got the opportunity to transform my niece’s bedroom. She was in need of an updated space. Her current bedroom was too juvenile with a loft bed, and didn’t really even function because of no nightstands or proper storage. The goal was to make it a hang out zone she’d want to stay in. And, well, I think I accomplished that!
The foundation of this room started with a one-of-a-kind circle wainscoting treatment paired with this colorful striped wallpaper from Copper Corners. Use code REMINGTONAVE10 for 10% off any of the wallpapers on her site. In my last post, I gave a detailed tutorial on exactly how I created the circle wainscoting, as well as how I visually made the room feel taller by putting wallpaper partially on the ceiling.
What I love most about this room is the major pattern play going on. Between the striped wallpaper, circle wainscoting, patterned bedding, and bright prints, there is a lot going on. But it all works together so well. It creates an artistic, fun vibe without being too juvenile. The perfect balance for a tween!
The retro poster wall is one of my favorite features of this tween bedroom. It adds so much vibrance and color to the space. Plus there are sooo many print options out there to choose from that you can very easily make this your own! And while I chose to frame them using inexpensive Ikea frames, you can also create a whole wall collage without frames like my friend Brooke (Nesting with Grace) did for her daughter. Her collage wall was actually the inspiration for this collage wall!
I found most of the decor for this tween bedroom for relatively affordable prices at some of my favorite places to shop for home decor! Believe it or not, quite a bit of this room was found at Homegoods! This includes the bedding, metal stars, desk accessories, and the yellow pillow chair. I’ve rounded up some similar pillow chairs because it is a fun addition to any teen room. The bed, nightstands, desk, drapes, and curtain rod are all from Walmart. And the sheets, lamp, and lamp shade are from Target.
The round mirror was actually an old gold mirror from Target as well that I spray painted black. I also spray painted the stars black. This helps to ground the space. I like to add a little black to every room to add some gravity (see curtain rod, nightstand base, rug pattern, mirror and stars) around the room.
Now that this space is finished, can you see the colorful mixed pattern tween bedroom vision come to life? This goes to show you that it is totally possible to mix colors and patterns and still have a cohesive space. It just has to be done right.
I’m so happy to have completed another project at my sister’s house. And I’m even more happy to have given my niece a totally transformed tween bedroom that she’ll love for years to come! And if you have the chance, go back and take a peek at some of the other projects I’ve done at my sister’s house! So far I’ve transformed her entryway, the dining room, the living room, the statement powder room, and the multi-purpose loft space.
