Songbird Teen Bedroom


My sister and I created this funky girls room a few years back for a Parade of Homes house.  We used all kinds of funky antiques mixed with new finds from Ikea, Urban Outfitters and TJ Maxx.  The quilts below were heirlooms from the owners parents with a green and white damask throw  from Urban Outfitters, layered on top.

Vintage Quilts and Needlework in Teen Bedroom

The walls were painted a very pale blue and the carpet was a dark muddied green.  We pumped up the color with hot pink and orange sherbert.  The tree stencil below was from Urban Outfitters.  A decorative bird-cage was packed with antique quilts with a bird perched atop the quilts.  A 3d chandelier covered in scrapbook papers and adorned with a tiny colorful bird was hung in the alcove.

3D Faux Chandelier with Scrapbook Paper

Three light panes with organic leaf designs were placed on the low wall for additional light to the bird chandelier.  The owners had purchased the headboard from a vintage shop in Salt Lake City.  The owner also had embroidered the tree art next to the bed and had held onto it since the 70′s!  In the lower image you can see a small dressing table for homework, makeup or hair was installed on the wall.  It drops down for more space.  We added some simple craft paint to add that extra touch of the tree and bird.  A simple folding stool from Ikea was dressed up with a slip cover and pompoms.

Here is a closeup of the table, chair and mirror.  We added a wall organizer to hold magazines, clipboards, and crafting items.  Above the door to the bathroom hangs a banner that reads “Songbird”.  We purchased the letters from JoAnn’s and imagined a young woman who liked to sing lived here (tying the bird and singing together).  A denim chair sits in front of an adorable bird and cage print from Urban Outfitters.

I love how this room turned out.  Especially since we were able to incorporate so many of the owners vintage things into the space.  It’s a perfect space for a bright young teenager to daydream.
