Express Yourself: Design Ideas for a Teen Girl’s Bedroom
Being a teen is all about discovering who you are. That means trying new things and experimenting with new styles. And if there’s one place where you can always go crazy with experimentation, it’s your bedroom.
There is an endless number of ways to be you, and that means there’s an endless number of ways to decorate your room. To help you get started, here are four design ideas for a teen girl’s bedroom.
Soft Girl Hideaway
Between friend drama, homework, and balancing all your responsibilities, being a teen is tough. This comfort-centric design will give you the perfect cocoon to wind down after a tough day.
Focus on creating a space that’s soft to the senses. Visually, look for pastels, like pink, lavender, or sky blue. Touch-wise, go with soft textiles, like puffy duvets, plush chairs, and fuzzy throw blankets. Add gentle fairy lights and wall art with encouraging expressions, and you have a space that maximizes comfort.
Add some potted or hanging plants, then hit up your local antique shop such as Westland London for furniture or art.
Punk Rock Heaven
Of course, being soft and gentle isn’t every girl’s idea of a good time. If you’re punk and proud of it, sometimes winding down means putting on your headphones and disappearing into the sweet, sweet sound of Green Day or Nirvana. So you might as well have a room to match.
Dark colors are the basis of any punk aesthetic, so opt for dark-colored walls. And, of course, no punk room is complete without posters to rep your favorite bands. Try creating an accent wall by covering it head to toe with posters. Fill in the spaces with cut-out magazine images to bring home that DIY feel.
The cottagecore aesthetic has taken the internet by storm for years. It embodies the look of the early nineteenth-century English countryside. In other words, if you’re a fan of Pride and Prejudice, this is the teen girl’s bedroom design idea of your dreams.
Look for light, breezy window trimmings that bring in as much natural light as possible. Then, emphasize light or earthy colors along with woodwork. Add some potted or hanging plants, then hit up your local antique shop for furniture or art.
There are many ways you can be a nerd. Likewise, there are dozens of ways to design a bedroom that’s just as geeky as you are. Here are a few tips that will help you design your bedroom, no matter what type of nerd you are:
- Fan of books or movies? Turn your collection into décor with a shelf and a cozy reading or movie watching nook
- Frame your favorite posters before putting them on the wall
- Put in extra shelves to display your fan merch
- Use the color scheme of your favorite franchise (for example, black, red, and blue for Star Wars)
There are a million ways to be you. So don’t be afraid to use your bedroom to explore yourself.
