Modern Tween Room Makeover
Submitted By: OAK House 5.
Everything on the walls is either old and sentimental or something that just “spoke” to Abby from clearance sales to garage sales. It was all about building a room around Abigail’s extraordinary character.
The tween years are hard, she is growing up but still loves her dolls. We came up with a great way to get the dolls off the floor where she can still enjoy them by mounting these floating shelves from Target.
A kids room needs to be functional as well as aesthetically pleasing to the eye. I feel like this room fits my daughter and we like to think of it as understated whimsey on a budget! Whatever your child’s personality, let their space reflect it! Happy decorating!
Love the idea of the shelves for dolls. 🙂
Oh I LOVE and ADORE this room. I’m wondering where the comforter came from? I love all of the colors in it! Thank you for sharing! XO Laura
Hi Laura, thank you for the kind words. The quilt, comforter and pillows came from Pottery Barn Teen a couple years ago but the drapes are custom made. Thanks again
I really like it! Its a perfect blend of childhood fun and grownup flair. She has good taste!
LOVE the American Girl dolls on the wall. The look loved and treasured but not just thrown in a box under her bed to be forgotten. Very sweet. I also LOVE all the colors and inspiration in this room. Very unique and cool. A great big girl room.
WOW! Why is it when you put things together, and when I try it it is a mess….(Ha-Ha). Everything looks great. I love your blog.
This room is great! It’s the sort of room I would have loved as a “tween”. The colors and the photos/art on the wall are perfect.
really nice! I would not mind having that for my bedroom either!
It is a great room! I love the way you displayed your daughter’s. My teen still has her AG dolls out. Her room is small, so they are displayed on a bookshelf.
This is a great room that walks the line between childhood and adulthood far more gracefully than most girls do! I have an 11-year-old stepdaugher, and I think she would LOVE something like this. Lots of ideas to borrow! Thanks!
I covet those drapes. I see that they are custom, are they two fabrics sewn together or one pre-striped fabric?
They are two fabrics sewn together. Labor intensive, for sure. Thank you for the kind words!!
I Love the Broadway and the telephone booth signs. Do you remember where you found those?
The broadway and telephone prints came from Pier One a couple years ago from the clearance pile. We wanted to fill the wall with all things and places that inspire Abby. Thank you for the kind words!!
Wonderful post however , I was wondering if you could write a
litte more on this topic? I’d be very thankful if you could elaborate a little bit further. Thank you!
