So excited to share Ella’s bedroom today! She was very excited to have her very own room, because of that it made her slightly less heartbroken to leave Connecticut and her friend’s, especially her best friend Loralis. Ella will be 14 in January! Say it isn’t so! Being the cool teen that she is I wanted to make sure we created a room that matcher her own unique style. I asked her to look on Pinterest for an inspiration photo she liked or even one piece of art would help me know the look she wanted. She found something that helped me get started!
Ella Teen Girls Bedroom
She couldn’t be happier with what we pulled together! Right from the start she said he wanted a white bed, white walls and some fun art. Check. Check. Check. For reference, and I know some might ask… her room is 13’x13′.
We had bookcases built-in and a window seat (a custom cushion is coming and roman shade). Ella likes the color blue, but it actually wasn’t in any of her inspiration pictures. So I decided to accent with the blue and have her bookcases painted in Setting Plaster by Farrow & Ball. It is a dusty pink, feels really neutral to me.
A desk was at the top of her requests. She likes to sit up here to study (honor roll student!!!), listen to music and draw. Her velvet desk chair is very comfy!
Lindsay Letters Dry Erase Calendar for writing out her busy schedule and notes was a fun addition. I went as big as I could go and then based the shelves off of this one piece. I used plant jars for her markers and pens. We drilled a hole down the back for her lamp to plug-in.
Always plants to finish off any room. They have all been doing well in this space for the two weeks we have had them, taught her how to water and take care of them too!
Love her sweet sconces over her window seat! I like them so much I did them in gray for a couple bathrooms too. It will be extra cozy once her cushion is in. I hung the snowflakes for fun for the holidays, but the look pretty cute with her decor, might stay up all year!
Baskets on the bookcase for notebooks, paperback books that don’t match her room (sorry red books) and plus the baskets help to simplify a bookcase rather than filling it with more objects.
The top shelf I put battery operated candles in that rattan planter (she has the remote to turn on and of). Add’s a nice glow to the bookcase.
The light fixture I found when I was thrift shopping. Turns out it is online in several shops! Find it HERE. You do have to have it swag over with the rope. The canopy isn’t strong enough if you were to cut the rope (our electrician advised us).
Remember those X-base stools from our Connecticut house? They look great in her room!
Her flat woven rug was the perfect find for her bedroom! It brings in all the colors we accented with.
I had actually ordered this nightstand for Lola’s room, but then ended up painting her bookcase blue. Now it works perfect in Ella’s room! (PS- you can easily add a pop of color to a room by thrifting a nightstand and painting it a bold color!).
Happiest, sweetest girl! Love her and her feisty, kind, thoughtful, caring, silly, smart, personality.
Bathroom door, closet doors and entrance to her room we painted all the same color in Setting Plaster.
And lastly, let’s have a point of silence for one of the views in the house! Little did we know when we added the second floor that the girls would have the best rooms because of the view!
