Your teen's bedroom is a place to express their individuality. However, you can't just turn them loose to design their bedroom space despite their youthful enthusiasm. After all, their room is still part of your home. To help in the makeover you should be prepared with cool bedroom ideas for teenage girls that can be used as a guide for decorating her room in a way that works for both of you.
Bold stripes used in the bedroom is a relatively new design for teen bedroom decor. However, you may not want her bedroom room looking like a prison cell. Try adding the cool factor with stripes by painting her bedroom wall with wide stripes using closely related shades in the same color family. Stripes can be horizontal or vertical. Vertical painted stripes on every wall gives the same effect as wallpaper. Horitzontal stripes are most attractive when painted in one or two bands around the room.
To balance wall stripes, select solid coordinating colors for bedding, drapery and rugs. Repeat the stripes theme in throw pillows with coordinating colors of stripes of varying sizes. A black metal bed with vertical bars in its head and footboard may be an option. Instead of bedside tables add narrow tower bookshelves on either side of the bed that can house mini stereo equipment, CDs and school books.
Animal prints are a design trend that has come on strong the last several years and shows no sign of slowing down. There are a variety of animal print options from zebra stripes to leopard prints to select from. The animal print used will dictate to some extent wall color.
If zebra stripes are used, be a bit daring and try painting one wall a matt black. If you don't want quite so much drama, try adding a bit of zebra-like stripes to a smaller bit of wall space. Coordinate with red, blue, purple or even green solid linens and window treatments. If leopard prints are used, you can use tans, cream and brown. Look for bed coverlets in washable ultra suede or even velveteen for a animal hide textural feel. Throw a fake fur over a chair or on the foot of the bed.
Prints of animals of all sorts are available almost everywhere. Select one large print perhaps of an elephant or giraffe to hang on a dominate wall. A stack of old suitcases or a steamer trunk can add to her animal print theme.
