I am so excited to share my youngest daughters bedroom with you today! This beautiful blue and white teen bedroom has been so much fun to create with her.
What started out as new bedding as a Christmas gift became a full room makeover. We decided it was time for a full size bed to replace the twin bed that she had had since she was three. We also discovered that the darling dresser that had been hers in her nursery was too small for her clothes, hence the total makeover.
Her favorite color is blue as I’m sure you could have guessed! She chose this darling blue and white quilt with matching euro shams which became our launching point. We added a white duvet edged in navy and a matching pillowcase which I had monogrammed locally. Serena and Lily just announced a big bedding sale and the duvet and quilt are included.
I am a fan of wallpaper. When we saw this print from Serena and Lily in shades of navy, we knew it was the perfect accent wall for behind her bed. The wallpaper arrived just as everything shut down for Covid so it took several months for us to be able to have it installed. It was so worth the wait. It makes such a statement in her room!
Next, we chose this beautiful four poster bed from Pottery Barn Teen. The French inspired shape and detailing of this bed drew me to it as I love French furniture. The thick side rails are pretty, too, so I chose not to use a bedskirt. This also helps with not “shoving” things under the bed when picking up!
Her dresser and matching nightstands happen to be a matching set. They are currently sold out but will be restocked. I’ve linked similar versions for you below! We are big readers at our house and we’re so happy that there are two shelves and a drawer on each nightstand for her to keep some of her treasured books.
Design Tip: Have glass custom cut for dressers desks and other table tops to protect their surfaces. It is not very expensive to do this. When I ordered these pieces online I did not notice that there were inserts on the tops of the dresser and the nightstands. I had our local glass company cut glass tops and inserts for the dresser and the shelves of the nightstands. They were a little grooves in them and I was afraid on the dresser particularly that the paint would get chipped.
The rattan mirror over her dresser brings a natural element to her room. It also coordinates well with her bamboo bookshelf that was a vintage find.
Hanging on either side of this near our beautiful paintings created just for her by my dear friend Jenn Thatcher. Jenn is a talented artist who has created several pieces for our home. You can see her work in our family room and in my bedroom.
I was thrilled to find these great white drapes with navy trim on the Pottery Barn Baby website! They are a great cotton twill and are lined with black outliner. We have blackout shades on all of the windows so they don’t need to operate. Never hesitate to look on all the websites of Pottery Barn to see what the products are that they have. Their designs are very versatile!
Design Tip: If you can’t find drapes the length you need, purchase them longer than you need and hem them. We actually shortened these at the top because they had banded trim along the bottom. These drapes actually had metal grommets at the top which we folded over and sewed to make them the length we needed. My oldest daughter has a sewing machine so my mother helped me to do this because I’m not a seamstress. I’ve also had this done at our local tailor on ready made drapes before. Sometimes you just have to get a little creative and think outside the box!
Speaking of box, I picked up this darling woven basket to serve as a “toybox” for her to keep all of her precious stuffed animals she’s not quite ready to part with. There are three sizes and this is the large. If she was younger and had more toys, the set of three would be great.
When she was three, she asked for this Parson’s desk and a monogrammed chair for Christmas. She wanted to be like her big sisters! She loves to sit here and do homework and crafts. It came in super handy during online school this spring. I’m praying we won’t be online long this fall! The lamp is part of a pair that I purchased for my middle daughter’s room but was actually too small to be bedside lamps. I split the pair and put one on each of their desks.
Her bulletin board is simply a 4 x 6 art canvas that I have made into a bulletin board. I’ll share a full tutorial on this soon! In the meantime, you can check out my Instagram story highlights.
If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw me spray paint this wicker elephant that my mother found in Kansas City. My daughter couldn’t wait to showcase her hand painted Air Force ones here! I think this will probably become a landing spot for homework or other things. But for now, I thought it was super cute and it made her happy!
One of her other requests was to have a Fat Boy Bean Bag in her bedroom. We have these in our teen game room and cabana. The girls and their friends love them. This is actually the Fatboy Slim which is really the perfect size. Traditional Fat Boys are about 6 inches wider and taller.
Last but not least, is this darling rattan bookshelf that holds her favorite books and trinkets from our travels. I actually found this at an antique store in Dallas many years ago and it had been in my middle daughter’s room. I found a similar set of bookshelves when I was looking on Etsy.
I hope that you enjoy this beautiful blue and white teen bedroom as much as we do! Please let me know if you have any questions in the comments below.
