One Room Challenge {ORC} Week #6: Reveal of a Modern Teen Hangout Bedroom

Wow!  Today’s the day for the Bedroom Reveal!  It’s been a quick six weeks!  When I said I was going to join the One room Challenge hosted by Linda of Calling it Home, I thought six weeks sounded like plenty of time, but let me tell you, six weeks is not plenty of time for an entire room redo!  Needless to say, the room happened and all in six weeks, so today is the day I get to share it with you all!  I couldn’t be more excited (or proud) of how it turned out!  If this is your first time here, Welcome and thanks for stopping by!  I decided to tackle my teen daughter’s bedroom and redo it into a space she will love to hang out in and have friends over.  The idea I was working with was a brightly colored, modern bedroom with gold accents.

This wall art from Minted created a beautiful wall gallery above her reading nook.

To jazz up a bookcase, I lined the background with gold polka dot fabric.  I like the pop it gives to an otherwise bland shelf.

For the desk space/ closet,  I dressed it with ruffled curtains on a sleek gold rod from Umbra.  Gold tie backs complete the look and she can open or close them as she wants too.  I used a Removable Wall Paper to cover the back wall of the space.  This gives it a pop of color and accents this space in the room. We added an interior light and some fun bling in the form of a metal chandelier.  This will be the perfect space to do hair and makeup in the morning.  On either side of the closet are shelves and a rod.  
I added a simple shelf above the desk and painted it in the same blue and the brackets from IKEA in gold.  A few trinkets and succulents are displayed.

I wanted her sleeping area to feel more like a lounge, so I configured the beds in a Ll shape with an ottoman and rug from At Home anchoring the area.  This way, she can have a friend stay the night or if several friends come to hang out, they can relax, listen to music, and all have a comfortable place to sit.  We replaced her bunk beds with two twin beds and bought new White Ruffle Edge Bedding for both beds.

The dresser was the find of the century.  For just $60, I transformed it into a gorgeous piece with paint from Devine and sleek gold hardware.  It is large enough to hold all of her clothing and creates a great horizontal display space on top.  I added some clear glass jars with gold stoppers from Altar’d State , a modern orb from At Home and a spray of fern leaves in a gold vase.

On the wall above the beds, I hung several pieces of art from Hobby Lobby along with a horse head bust from Hayneedle.

My daughter is on an equestrian team and we have never been able to find a good way to display her competition ribbons.  I decided to make a valence out of them so she can add and change them.  I am proud of her accomplishments and it is the perfect way to showcase her hard work.  Using just a long piece of elastic, I tacked it to each end of the blinds and they easily clipped right on.

I wanted to be sure she had a reading light since she doesn’t have a nightstand.  A simple globe sconce from Urban Outfitters is just the right amount of light she needs.  Overhead, I switched out a traditional ceiling fan with this custom-made brass five arm pendant from Illuminate Vintage.
