To make what was a juvenile, childish girl's room more appropriate for a growing tween, the walls were painted a deep shade of violet, album cover-inspired art was hung to create a focal point, vintage lighting was installed on the ceilings and the walls, and women's fashion fabrics were used in upholstered accents.
According to Genevieve Gorder, this bedroom needs some serious help. "A white upholstered hollow-core door as a headboard and layers of white bedding would have added comfort and a sense of dreamy luxury," says Candice. "Acoustical ceiling tiles wrapped in pink cotton to fill the area above the desk would have been a more striking and practical treatment."
Bedroom With Criss-Cross Ribbons on the Walls for Holding Photos
This bedroom's unique feature is the criss-cross ribbon attached to both walls. The homeowners can place photos, art, drawings, postcards -- anything! -- under the ribbons, and change them out at any time for changing and evolving decor. Pale periwinkle-colored walls create a soothing sleep space, and an industrial-style table with wheels doubles as a dressing table or desk.
Purple Transitional Bedroom With Vintage Furnishings
Vintage furnishings create a lived-in look and feel. The vintage chandelier and vintage French bed meet contemporary style by mixing in a Crate & Barrel table lamp, an IKEA desk chair and a West Elm desk.
Thanks to a bold color scheme of violet, black, white and gold, this designer-caliber tween girl's bedroom is as appealing to the tween herself as it is to her young parents. From the royal palette to the vintage pieces and fashion-inspired artwork, she'll feel blissfully at home here for years to come.

Periwinkle Teen Bedroom With Ribbons Attached to the Walls to Hold Photos
This funky space would be great for a teen -- or even as a guest bedroom! Ribbons criss-crossed and attached to the periwinkle-colored walls allow the homeowners to place paper mementos all over the walls in varying patterns. And the postcards, photos and art can be added to or changed out at any time. A lace bedskirt creates a feminine feel in the room, and white bed linens feel crisp and comfortable.
