Neutral, Masculine, Eclectic Teenage Boy's Room with Bold Pops of Color
To create the perfect boy's space that can grow with the homeowners' young, teenage son, designers started with white walls and ash gray wood floors that would match the rest of the home's neutral, eclectic design. Then, they added pops of bold orange and blue that would make the space feel masculine, but still fun. Then, they hung bits of art on the walls that showcased his interest-sports items, beach balls, band posters-creating a unique space perfectly tailored to its owner.
In one corner of the back wall of the homeowners' son's bedroom, designers installed a built-in desk, giving the room's occupant a space to work and create. Decorated with fun, anime art, posters from his favorite band, his favorite books and sports trophies and a small file cabinet for storage, this desk space is the perfect place for a teenage boy.
A cobalt blue nightstand adds bold color to this mostly white teen's bedroom. Trimmed in hot pink, the bright white bedding pairs with a pretty tufted headboard covered by a patterned blue-and-white canopy.
Teen Bedroom Study Area With Custom Desk and Shelving Made from Pipes and Reclaimed Flooring
An essential element in a teen bedroom -- a study area -- is commanded by this desk, crafted from pipes and reclaimed flooring. The desk is attached to the wall, providing ample shelving storage area without taking up a great deal of visual space. A custom radiator cabinet is a lovely way to update an older home while retaining some of the original charm.
For a home that's set amongst trees, the designer's vision for this teen girl's bedroom was to mimic the surroundings; the yellow trim details were a subtle suggestion of peeking out a window into a forest. The monotone color palette helped keep the space simple and chic.
Eclectic Girl's Bedroom With Zebra-Print Tray Ceiling
Magenta-colored drapes and a zebra-printed, round ceiling cut-out create a dramatic effect in this girl's bedroom. Vibrant pillows add color to the white window seat bench. Playful, paisley-printed bedding brings even more rich, purple tones to the mostly white space.
In the homeowners' teenage son's bedroom, designers wanted to really showcase his personality, so they anchored the space in the sleek, white wall color and ash-colored wood floor to connect this room to the rest of the home's design. Then, they incorporated the son's favorite things-sports, cars and music-by hanging posters on the wall in homage to this. They also made sure to include fun, bright colored details, such as the table lamps and the bed linens to bring a little fun to the room.
Vaulted Ceiling Adds Drama and Depth in Eclectic Teen's Bedroom
The vaulted ceiling in this space provides a dramatic touch to the already chic teen's lounge and bedroom. Designers incorporated what would have been space wasted in a vaulted ceiling by painting the lower half a bold, teal color, while the upper part of the ceiling was given matching wallpaper, creating a deeper space.
Taking full advantage of the cozy nook, the rustic canopy bed is dressed in cozy, textured bedding. A patterned bench adds extra seating to the space, while an open bookshelf stores the teen's library.
