I've had a few people email me asking how on earth to decorate a teenager's bedroom. So I thought I would share a project I finished recently...
Haley: age 15, cowgirl, likes bright colors, PB teen decor, her pony, lots of natural light-not to be confused with Twilight- another love.
the Mom: a western Martha Stewart with edge; Exquisite taste but does not like bright colors, patterns or anything from PB Teen.
the Dad: a musician; in decorating words: keep it interesting. But without color, please.
Me: in over my head.
Let's start from the beginning: the inspiration behind this room-
These angel wings were picked up by Haley's parents on a road trip out West. We all agreed they would be perfect for her room.
So I made them into a headboard...
With that in mind I designed a set of bookcases with a built-in desk and had them installed on the far wall.
At one point I had these shelves 'styled' the way I wanted them but then quickly realized it wasn't fitting unless Haley did it herself...

The drapery panels were custom made with decorative ties to make them a little more youthful. Decorative hardware from Anthropologie.
Custom slipcovered bedside tables- with a little feminine, bright? detail...
And my favorite moment in the room...
1. The Painting
Look familiar? You might have seen Haley and Buni in THIS famous music video !
2. The Chairs
Classy, bright fabrics? Peter Dunham to the rescue!
This cowgirl has quite the view from her bedroom...
And quite a precious sidekick...
