5 amazing rooms for teens

teen girl room

The older our children get, the more they want to be involved in how their bedrooms look. Totally normal because our little people are growing up making their own opinions, decisions, and choices. A teen should hang out in a room that reflects them.

And teens have different priorities than little kids. They do not need a lot of floor space for Lego and blocks, but love a little couch or big floor pillow for reading, listening to music, or having friends over. , even if it means going for a laptop desk for homework over a free-standing one.

What are the essentials you are asking? A single, full sized bed is definitely one. And a good chest of drawers or wardrobe in a classic and subtle colour so it can withstand any changes of favourite colours around the room. Also keep in mind, a transformation does not have to mean that you need to toss everything. Bedside tables can be painted, a lamp can easily be updated with a new fabric shade. Yesterday article about prints in children’s rooms works for teen rooms very well too.

Get your child involved by letting them create a moodboard, a colour palette, and pick things they find interesting. Set a budget together and see how to make most out of it. It is fun and they can learn something out of it too.

To help you with some inspiration and to take away some ideas I have gathered 5 amazing rooms for teens here today, for you:

Talking about rooms, did you see that I am busy designing two children’s rooms at the moment? They will be shown during two design festivals in Germany in April and of course I will share them on here afterwards too. So excited, one of my favourite things to do.

7 kids rooms that look like right out of a fairy tale

natural kids room

After yesterday’s visit to the magic worlds and fantasies, I thought that it would be nice to keep the spirit and share some wonderful fairy tale inspired kids rooms.

Away from the minimal trend and full on with deep colours, heavy wallpapers, and lots of whimsical decoration. A recipe that always seems to win and really add an instant magical twist is a canopy! But not only. Adding garlands, stars, several layers of blankets, and gorgeous cushions and pillows will also add a big dose of mystic.

To visualise and to get inspired and take home some ideas, I found 7 kids rooms that look like right out of a fairy tale for you:

 

Canopy kids room
This gorgeous canopy is made of linen-like georgette fabric with a stunning lace trim. And it truly has just the right amount of detail and a magic touch. Together with the floral wallpaper and accessories this room really looks like just out of a fairy tale.

fairytale kids room
Not as charged but lovely nonetheless. Soft pale pink walls, which is very sophisticated yet playful. And of course that mirror invites for lots of creative role play moments…

fairy kids room
What kind of dreams can you have when sleeping here? They truly must be magical… under the pompous sky of stars and on the romantic frock. (lots of lovely linen bedding, bed skirts and more available here*)

natural kids room
Fantastic double room that comes with a natural magic because of all the wood. And a great example how a canopy, cushions, and buntings make it truly enchanting.

Sit in your an impregnable fortress or castle or whatever you decide to make out of your cosy canopy corner.

vintage kids room
An amazingly beautiful children’s room that provides so much inspiration. Have a look and enjoy all the details. You will some new ones every time you come back to it. Lots of beautiful toys, cool wallpaper, and vintage treasures.

And another example where the wallpaper is the room. Which makes me think that I should maybe really try it out in our home too. Starting with a small feature wall…

A very romantic double kids room

Today I am sharing one special family apartment where the children’s room is center stage. It is such a romantic double room and situated right in the heart of the flat.

Altogether, it is a beautiful and incredibly bright corner apartment with a large balcony and lots of original details. See the fishbone oak parquet and original doors?

You probably already guessed it: we are back in Sweden today. In Gothenburg to be precise. And it is one of these typical and well adorned places with high ceilings and lots of light that just make you swoon:

Those canopies really look a bit more gorgeous when hanging in such a spacious room. And they do add a romantic touch and make it more cosy and sweet.

If you would like to copy that look, please have a look at this canopy selection*! Oh, and the lovely bed covers – you can find them here* too.

One fabulous architect designed nursery

When you have the resources to hire a fabulous design studio to work on your child’s nursery. Well, lovely interiors like the one I am sharing today are the result.

This amazing rope canopy (or how would you call it?) is definitely the eye catcher and I am guessing that it can be changed from time to time. Different colours, shapes, and materials. I have never seen anything like it before and love the colourways they used.

Did you notice how the wall reflects the colours as well? Very subtle and sweet.

Those built-in shelves are fantastic as well!

And lots of natural light with beautiful greenery.

And there are more beds for children… make sure to keep looking up and not get stuck with another cool wall of shelves. There is kind of ‘rope hole’ for some fun as well as light coming through. Very clever and I am sure the kids love it too…

Plus the slide. Of course there is a slide!

And of course a very cute bathroom…

I would be very curious to see the rest of the house as well. And I am sure you too.

Would you like to see more architect designed places? One of my favourites is definitely this family apartment in Paris.

Whimsical children’s rooms with lots of details

Whimsical children's rooms

I am sure that you had your fair deal of Christmas decorations, trees, and styled mantelpieces. Therefore, I will not share another magazine perfect place that looks like Santa’s elves have passed.

No, we are off to Australia where Santa comes in swim trunks and the baubles melt away. Raffaela Jenkins, stylist and mother to Indi, and Ollie has designed two delightful children’s room that you absolutely have to check out.

The family lives in Melbourne, Australia and are big supporters of handmade/small businesses.

‘I love to share my passion for quality products and support the brands that are making special items for the little people in our lives, as well as my love of interior design and photography.’

Raffaela created a very whimsical room for her daughter Indi, and a chic nursery for baby Ollie:

Oh the twinkly fairy lights and that beautiful wallpaper. This is definitely a room that invites you for cosy down time, and lots of special moments.

This room oozes love and is full of details. I am loving all the sweet cushions on the bed and that dolls house (similar here).

And of course that bed canopy! Oh my! There is no better way to turn a room into a romantic haven.
