Colour Palette: A Stylish Teenage Bedroom

I've had several emails recently asking for advice on how to decorate a teenager's bedroom in a manner that balances both fun and function without loosing any style points. This bedroom is a fine example of how to do this as it strikes a balance between feeling youthful and sophisticated. The benefit of this approach is that once the bedroom is freed up you will be able to swap out a few smaller pieces such as the lamp and the textiles in order to make the room a perfect spare bedroom. In the meantime, the playful stripes are tempered by the chic grey painted panelling, which is anchored by a black bed frame and rug. Choosing a metal bed frame allows teenagers to twist fairy lights around the headboard for a relaxed, younger feel, which again can easily be taken out for a more grown up look. Finally, incorporate plenty of storage into the room to make it practical for storing away DVDs, sports kit and so on.

  1. Love the grey panelling - it adds so much to the room. The wallpaper is striking as well.

  5. Oh that panelling is gorgeous! I also love the colour palette, it's so warm and inviting paired with the natural wood furniture. (And I love the bed, because I have that bed... gotta love Ikea)!!

  6. I wish my teenage bedroom had looked like that. Pink walls, grey floral border and wardrobes with padded material motifs. I'm sure that trend will come back some time ; ) x

    1. Ditto, Jo! until I was about fifteen mine was plastered in posters of dubious pop acts, then I discovered 'interiors' and so we pulled up the carpet, sanded the floor boards and painted the walls - much better! ;) x

    1. That's exactly why this room has the flexibility to move from teenager's space to spare room - love it! Yes, the bed is from IKEA and is called the LILLESAND: http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/S39887630/

  9. I love the grey painted panelling? Is that rug ikea? We have it in green in the kitchen/diner. My teenage bedroom had peach walls with a light green stencilled border... all the rage in the 90's!! x

    Funny - that mandatory (Do Not Disturb) sign is there too. Someone understands teenagers! (:
