Happy Friday everyone!
I’ve been a bit quiet the past couple of weeks with a load of briefs and design concepts to work through. In saying that, today I would love to show you some pictures of Ella’s new teenage bedroom. My clients Narelle and Andrew contacted me a couple of months ago to give me the rundown of what Ella imagines her dream space to look like. The outcome reflects her personality perfectly and it is a versatile room that she can grow with throughout her teenage years.
I was super excited to start this project because I created Kate’s teenage bedroom last year (Ella’s older sister.). We have loosely replicated the furniture layout to match Kate’s, however, the two rooms look so different. Cohesive, yet different! We decorated both spaces using some budget friendly pieces to ensure that we maintained two realistic teenage bedrooms. We all know that teens go through phases, and lots of them!!! Heck I remember listening to Ciara one minute… and My Chemical Romance the next (lol!!!!!)
Here are the before images of Ella’s old room.
Ella liked the idea of an urban bedroom so we chose to decorate the room in this style instead of furnishing it head to toe in themed product. If I had chosen either rustic wood or metal furniture, Ella would be tied to this particular style for several years. Whereas, by keeping the furniture simple and fairly modern, the room has versatility and can easily be redecorated if Ella grows out of the urban style. This is also a good option if you like to follow seasonal trends.
One of our ‘must have items’ was the Ivory and Deene hammock chair. The room is quite small so we saved a tonne of floor space by having a hanging chair instead of a regular occasional chair. Ella can also slide the leather ottoman underneath the hammock so it is out of the way when not in use. Other than being a great space saver, I chose this piece because it fits the look perfectly… Oh and did I mention it’s only $79.00 Whattttt?! Please note that we added support beams in the roof for extra safety. It’s easy if you know what you’re doing.
Another product we had to have in Ella’s room was the You Rock poster from Seek and Style. When I showed Narelle it was an instant YES and she stated that it could actually be Ella in the image!! Shorts and Dr Marten’s (or Converse) are her thing, so the poster was totally fitting for her new space. I also strung up a polaroid photo wall behind the hammock chair, however, I didn’t photograph this in detail because I don’t feel right putting her personal memories all over my blog. You can kind of see the twinkle lights in the above image though 🙂
Ella and her family were so happy with the end result and of course I am too. Especially when taking into consideration that a lot of these products are budget friendly. It goes to show if you choose wisely and decorate with a particular theme or colour palette in mind, you can produce a lovely room for less than you think.
