A Miami Beach getaway designed by Lee F. Mindel is a lesson in decorating with color. Benjamin Moore’s vibrant Cool Aqua pairs well with headboard, in a Link Textiles fabric, along with pops of crisp white. to finish the look, Mindel settled on custom bedding by E. Braun & Co., Oluce lamps from MSK Illuminations, and Design Within Reach nightstands.
You should have as many family photos as you wish in other rooms in the house, but it's best to keep the bedroom's artwork less emotionally loaded. Elegant photographs add some character to your space without reminding you of specific people while you're trying to fall asleep. All of the photographs pictured in this Upper West Side bedroom are by Marsha Lebedev Bernstein.
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 prefer new, there are great places to find affordable furniture for teenage bedrooms.
