A bedroom in a sunny Brooklyn, New York apartment featured on Homepolish gets a soft rustic vibe courtesy of flea market finds. Storied pieces like the painted wood headboard and old pastoral painting add charming appeal. Mismatched end tables are a homey touch that builds one of a kind character. An assortment of embellishments like the books and short sprigs of lavender create a lived-in look that does not feel cluttered.
If you want to make a fast impression in any bedroom decor, then paint. Did we say that already? ;0 This room was done by ‘HGTV‘ viewer CvilleJanice..This bedroom is simple and sweet, and it’s because of that awesome blue on the walls! Ok, her DIY headboards (she used paint to update those as well!) and pretty quilts are also major players. But can you see how easy it is to makeover a bedroom, just with paint?
Transform a neutral bedstead with a floral duvet and pillowcases. Finish with a wool throw in a paler sky hue for an elegant look. To make your room feel larger and brighter, paint the walls in a chalky off-white or pale shade of blue. For a more dramatic statement try a darker backdrop, which will look gorgeous with bright white and inky blue linens.
However, most parents don't have the funds to lavishly decorate their child's bedroom, nor should you spend your hard-earned cash on furniture, bedding and decor that has inflated mark-ups and little long-lasting value. Truth is, you can create a fabulous room for your teen without going broke in the process - or even without spending much money at all.
Furnishing your teenage bedroom is a must but when it comes to furniture, you don't have to spend a lot to get a lot. I've found that vintage furniture is often better quality than new and can be found for super-cheap at estate sales and flea markets. If you have minimal DIY skills, with a little paint, almost any old piece of furniture can be made into something new. If you prefer new, there are great places to find affordable furniture for teenage bedrooms.
