The girl. Just turned 13. The birthday party is already a lingering memory. It’s now high time for an upgrade of the small child bedroom, transforming it into a darling teen girls abode. What was easy about the child bedroom: you got to decide most of it, is no longer a go. Teens have their own mind and taste, and a teen bedroom design is a negotiation, something that is co-designed with you and your child. Hence this post for all of us to benefit from: Teen Girls Bedroom Ideas.
Design Criteria & Plans
So what are we doing? Even though still young, my girl has taste for elegance, and naturally likes her room to reflect this. So, we have been looking at bedroom furniture and furnishings that are elegant, but when paired with one’s own belongings (bags, books, clothes, you name it…) the styles are also teen enough. It’s been a lot of fun dreaming up a future bedroom. And I’m sharing our dream stage here with you.
Meanwhile, we also have a new affiliate we are partnering with: Graham and Brown. They are a worldwide interior design shop offering mostly exquisite wallpapers and wall art, but a few of the finer room decorating elements as well. We scoured their warehouses for goodies that would create the mood themes we’d liked to explore: urban/inspiration; horses/sea/nature; floral/cozy/deluxe; wild animals; and ballerina-ish. This is the result.
The Moodboards with our Teen Girls Bedroom Ideas
When conjuring up images on how to develop a teen girls bedroom ideas mood board, it occurred to me that, in reality, we hardly ever have just 1 theme going on in a room. Usually, we blend themes. We have two hobbies, we have two sets of furniture bought at different times, etc. So this article is to show you how to blend several themes together. Each mood board shows you how few props you need to create a theme, and how a theme is easily carried forward by the use of the right wallpaper and blending paint color choices in your overall color palette for your teen bedroom.
Inspirational City Teen Girls Bedroom Mood Board
We started with exploring our inspirational big city theme. We’re hoping to bring that sense of ‘it’s hapening here’, the sense that the streets of our beloved New York City promise, into the bedroom. An inspiration.
Urban Clock. This unique, and quite large, metal art clock gets you on board with current industrial interior design trend, and gets the girl in school on time. (wink).
I thought that this teen girls bedroom pillow with the inspirational quote ‘Seek and you will find’ was a perfect coordinate.
New York City Typographic Pillow Striking b/w design, featuring the iconic New York skyline, this pillow continues the NYC theme of the feature wall art in the room, creating atmosphere. Made from 100% cotton, 50x50cm, generously filled – a quirky pillow that’s both plush and cosy.

At the beach / white Horse Loving Teen Bedroom Mood Board
The horse theme is sort of outdoorsy, rustic, natural, and no-fuss comfy. We did not want to to be ‘all about horses’, but somehow have the horses as a feature. On the opposite wall we’re thinking to have that lovely beach scene, for contrast and balance. It sort of builds the mood. What do you think: is that too much going on?
Distance Shore Printed Canvas (23 x 31 inch)
Distant shores – what a breath-taking idyllic beach scene! I think an eye-catching image like this is great to wake up to. Perhaps it will have her dreaming of riding her horse along the shores in early sunny summer mornings?! What’s good is that the gorgeous neutral tones of this canvas add warmth to the overall decor, extending that sense of natural freedom while creating cozying up the room.
