I was contacted by Julie to help her out with her daughters bedroom. It's a tween room shared by her two daughters, ages 11 and 9.
Julie has great some great ideas for the room and a great sense of what is needed for the room. Julie reached out to me because she needed additional ideas on how to best get the room to function, layout, ideas on window treatments, accessories, and lighting. And that's where I step in!
The great thing about the room is that the girls have their distinct color preferences of choice (oldest girl blue/bright green and younger girl purple) and we're not changing anything about that which I love. I think it's important to maintain those color preferences for the girls, but I've given Julie a few ideas on how to provide some consistency and find common ground in the room.
So I'll be sharing more about this project with you soon and as things progress.
Do you know of any tween rooms that do not have lots of color in the room? Isn't it funny how our color preferences change over time as well? And maybe that has something to do with the path we lead in life...young and full of energy equates to lots of color and then as we get older we tend to lean toward a palette that suits our life, our profession, and our personalities.
Here are a few tween rooms that I came across on Houzz that I really enjoyed:
We're going to be taking elements of each of these rooms and adding them into Julie's girls room: artwork and photography on the walls, window treatments, lighting, some fun accessories, and a work/craft/game area.
I'll keep you posted and will be sharing some photos with you soon.
Have a good Monday everyone! I'm already enjoying my first cup of coffee for the day.
