Teen Girl Room Revealed

Months ago I shared with you my daughter's friend Mia's room, that was in dire need of a makeover.  Mia and her mom enlisted me to help her transform her room.  Mia's main request...she wanted her room as orange as possible.  Here is the room after I got my hands on it:
 Let me remind you where this room began...
What a difference...right?
I started her makeover by transforming her closet.
I painted the closet Benjamin Moore Rhumba Orange
and added a closet system from The Container Store.
The wall behind the bed got the same wall color as the closet.  The room is a combination of white, gray and orange.  The desk is from West Elm and the white leather desk chair is from Ikea.
The memo board is inspired by the style tile boards sold by Pottery Barn Teen.

You can read a tutorial on how to make this here.
The Ikea Expedit was the perfect solution for storage in Mia's room.
Ikea was filled with orange accessories which made it easy to style this room.
Lighting was a problem in this room before.
They hired an electrician to add power so that we could add a ceiling fixture.
We had the electrician hang this super cool chandelier from Lighting Direct.
Here is the other side of the room.   The three other walls in the room are painted Benjamin Moore Balboa Mist.  It's a light silver gray color (which is hardly showing up in the photos).
The orange wall mirror and funky orange light on the dresser is from Ikea. 
The dresser and the drapes on the closet are from West Elm. 
I love how the lamp shape picks up on the pattern in the drapes.
The laundry hamper is made by OXO and is from Amazon.
Here is a closeup of the dresser.  I fell in love with this when I saw it.
The bean bag chair is from Pottery Barn Teen.
The rug is also from West Elm.  The grey zebra print helped pull the room together.
The bedding Mia had already and wanted to use it in the room.
The headboard and bed are from West Elm.  The lamp on the night stand is from Ikea.

Mia and her parents love how the room came out.  I love it too!

I can't wait to hear what you think.

I love the way you used the orange, Judy, and how it is not on every wall in the room. Great mirror! I love how it looks so much more grown up. This should last her quite awhile now!

I don't like orange. At all.
But given that SHE does, you did a great job with it!

Very nice, Judy! She must love it. That dresser is gorgeous! It almost looks like it's tiled. And I love the curtain and the rug. What a great room for a teen. =)

I love it - especially the color combination! Do you mind divulging how much it cost? Just curious!

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

Love the new room...the colors are wonderful...Such a great room for a teen....I am sure she is thrilled!! Love all that you created!

Linda @ it all started with paint said...

Mia needs to meet my teen son Sam. He too requested orange. And like you (see, great minds think alike) I paired it with gray. And some black chalkboard paint.

Mia's room looks absolutely lovely. All your little (and large giant fuzzy bean bag) touches are perfect ...

:)

Oh to be a teen girl in this room! Sure beats my frilly pink room!

Love the modern touches, the fabulous dresser and light (I had that on my lighting wish list when I did my house!), and the colors.

You win mom of the year!
