Pre-Teen Bedroom Refresh

I recently completed a really fun bedroom refresh for twin sisters on their 10th birthday. I had painted their room when they went from a baby room to a "big girl" room back in 2009. The theme was "princess" and it looked like this (some of you longtime readers might remember?!):











The girls were getting older, and more opinionated about what they wanted and didn't want, and for their 10th birthday, their mom decided to redecorate their room. They did keep the clouds in the trey ceiling. :)


They wanted teal and coral, but everything else was up to the creative process. We decided to paint the walls gray as a nice neutral base that they can live with forever, then add all the pops of color in after that.  I only have photos from my iPhone right now, but I still wanted to share the end result, because it ended up being a bright, poppy, happy space for the girls to share.


Here is our end result:





I found the metal letters at Hobby Lobby and spray painted them coral. They add such a fun punch of color and a little bit of whimsy into the feminine space. They already had the beds/nightstand/mirror since the princess bedroom days, so we worked with what we had on that. 

We bought the new bedding from Pottery Barn Teen and lots of fun accessories from places like Hobby Lobby, Homegoods, and Target. I love using the consistent colors but mixing patterns. 

The lucite benches at the ends of the bed add a nice change of pace, and provide extra seating for putting on shoes, clothes, whatever.

I love the peachy/coral fluffy pillows! 

We replaced the heavy curtains from the princess bedroom days with light and airy white curtains with coral tassels on the edges. The brass hardware is a fun, feminine-but-modern touch.

Across from the bed is their dresser. We decided to do a gallery wall around the dresser mirror, and I LOVED how it turned out. It brings presence to the space which felt kind of empty before with only the mirror. 





It was starting to get dark when I took these photos, so the lighting is kind of yellow here. 

I love the wicker egg chair - it brought really nice texture to the room, and a place to read.

 The pink sparkly pillow was from the Dollar spot at Target ;)













We also repeated some elements in the bathroom, but I only got this one snapshot. I will get some better photos soon and post them as well, but I loved this grouping of four of the same pieces all together. Easy way of getting a "larger scale" with small art.
