A Glamorous Tween Room
Big screen-inspired accessories, like this clap board and Hollywood sign, show how thoughtful details make a big impact. And any starlet would love a bouquet of pink roses.
Take a Bow
A dream stage, complete with a karaoke machine and guitar launched this bedroom's star-studded theme. Between acts and costume changes, the curtains can be pulled shut by a string. A feather boa on the valance and sparkly fabric on the curtains add a final flourish.
To take the stage from fun to functional, a drawer was built in underneath. It's a handy storage spot for sparkly dance outfits, costumes and props.
Star-studded accessories, including an Oscar statue and old-fashioned camera, double as props for pretend walks down the red carpet. The armoire's mirrored oval detailing adds glitz and additional place for primping.
Every diva needs a spot to relax. A pint-size recliner offers a spot to relax and chat with friends on a feather festooned phone. A pink curtain covers the nightstand's oval cutout so the contents don't have to be in perfect order. Fun yellow star rugs are a soft spot to sit and giggle with friends.
Pink tulle and a colorful mix of ribbons suspended from a curtain rod create a fashion-forward closet door. The curtain hides the closet's contents, but is much more stylin' than typical wood closet doors.
Calling the Shots
This pink director's chair tells who the boss in this room is. The two-toned purple walls are bright and fun for a young girl. But the purple hues are versatile- the classic, feminine tones can grow as she does. It may seem like a good idea to hang wallpaper or stencil a motif that plays up a child's latest craze. To save time and money, it is often best to keep the wall simple to avoid a premature do-over.
Present and Future
Kids grow up and change at a quick pace. A theme room that is perfect for now might seem childish in three or four years. But making a room go the distance is simple. First, think about investing in pieces that transcend age and style. The classic white furniture in this room suits the tastes of a girl and young woman.
Turned bun feet and oval detailing give this dressing table classic good looks that will carry from childhood to adulthood. The vanity also can do double duty as a desk for homework. Paper lanterns clipped onto a string of lights frame the mirror to mimic a star's makeup lights.
