Dark and Moody Boho Teen Bedroom Reveal

Dark and Moody Boho Teen Bedroom Reveal

We finally finished my niece’s bedroom just in time for her Birthday. We started the process of designing her room on Pinterest trying to decide what Style she really liked. Once she picked out a Boho theme that would be dark and moody we went to Sherwin Williams and picked out paint colors. We chose Blue Peacock for the accent wall and Snowbound for the other 3 walls. We got Moscow Nights for the headboard and the side table that I redid. Next week I am going to share both DIYs for the headboard and side table.

Our color palette at this point was teal, navy and white but I really wanted to add in some mauve. My niece does not like pink but she loved the deep color of the mauve. We picked out the cutest navy fur bedding and added a sweet mauve throw pillow. My niece did not want a bed that was hard to makeup so I kept things simple. She also wanted an area to do her hair and makeup so I got this super affordable desk at Ikea and the cute mauve velvet stool off of amazon. The mirror was our favorite though. As soon as I saw it at Target I knew we had to have it in her room. Originally I wanted to put it over the bed but since she needed a makeup spot I decided the mirror over the desk was best. We found this moon wall décor at Homegoods which turned out perfect over the bed.

I then ordered these gorgeous velvet drapes in dusty rose (which is mauve by a different name). The bookcase and reading area are by far her favorite. We did not spend much on the bookcase since we were redoing the entire room. We got this adorable chair at Target from the Studio McGee collection but we had to have a pouf so she could prop her feet up to read. We also added soft lighting where ever we could. I added fairy lights to the headboard, LED strip lights to the back of the bookcase and the cute “Hello” light up sign. My niece loves to sit in her room with just these lights on and listen to her music. This may have been one of the funniest room makeovers I have ever done. This is not a style that I am familiar with but I loved stepping outside of my comfort zone.

I hope you like the final product as much as my niece!

Dark and Moody Boho Teen Room

Dark and Moody Boho Teen Room

My niece and I are in the process of redoing her room. She is now 13 so wants a more mature room. We looked at lots of images on Pinterest and she decided she loved all the dark and moody rooms. She also really loved all the Boho accessories that have gotten popular. We have a very limited budget so we are going to work with what we have as much as possible. Below are some of the items we found in our search to create the perfect space for her. I will continue to update you on the progress as we go. Last weekend I shared our paint color selections on Instagram so if you missed it we picked Blue Peacock, Moscow Nights and Snowbound all by Sherwin Williams.

LET’S TALK COMPROMISE – PART 3

LET’S TALK COMPROMISE – PART 3

We finally came to an agreement on the throw pillow and blanket situation. Personally I think we both won! I purchased a duvet set that was really soft and comfy. My nephew does not even realize the shams are more decorative then functional so he sleeps with them. Now that he doesn’t classify the shams as throw pillows I was able to add two more pillows. Happy Aunt and happy nephew! It probably helped my case that the leather pillow from target is very soft and squishy so he can comfortably lay on it. As you can tell I kept his bedding simple and relaxed so he can easily make it up himself. If you cannot tell from the pictures my nephew’s favorite things in life are football, gaming, history and more football. I found these great prints of the LSU’s stadium and surprised him with them.

The Chair! I have absolutely no problem with this chair. I love the color and it is so comfy. The leather is soft and broken in but this chair is HUGE. It may not look it in the pictures but trust me I had a time moving it to that corner. Not only is it huge but for some reason my nephew wanted it in the center of the room. When we built the desk and added in the dresser I had to rearrange everything so it would fit and this is when I took my chance…I shoved it in the corner and said nothing. Surprisingly it is still in the corner so fingers crossed.

Overall, I am pleased with how his room turned out. The room is an expression of who he is and gives him a space that is all his. Every detail of this room is about him and for him which is why this is one of my favorite projects. I think allowing our kids the freedom to make their own choices is wonderful even if it is as simple as designing their own room.
