Hunter is entering the Tween years and has been begging for her own room! I am over here thinking we just finally got settled, I can’t do a big change!! Didn’t we just finish their room (see details here). I am not about to go buy all new furniture and start another room design. Instead of completely shutting her down, we decided to compromise. We made a few simple updates to incorporate more of her personal style. It was such an easy way to give the room a new look, that I wanted to share the 3 updates we did with you!
I know this sounds too simple to have a big effect, but it definitely can. Find a fun new color or pattern, like the stripes we chose, that will pop. And then the trick is to fold down your comforter so you can see the sheets. Since Utah winter is around the corner and the basement is freezing, we went with cozy flannel sheets from Pottery Barn Teen. It made the biggest difference in the girls room and it was the easiest switch!We absolutely loved their fun pattern options, and that so many of them were part of their Fair Trade Collection, supporting a healthy working environment and of course better for the planet!
I have pillows everywhere possible, so it should come as no surprise to you how much I love pillows! So when I tried to come up with some other simple updates to give the room a new look, I knew switching those up could definitely give it a different feel. Pottery Barn Teen had the perfect “grown up” but still fun options for her tween style. I love this simple update. We went with this fuzzy one and love it! We can easily switch back or switch again and we didn’t have to spend a bunch of money or move heavy furniture.
Something as simple as adding a new picture frame or desk organizer to a previously empty shelf can give you that something new you are looking for. So I love taking a shelf or nightstand space in the room and completely redoing it. It gives your eye something new to look at and can satisfy that craving to remodel the whole house!
Like I said, these are really such quick and easy changes you can make so you can transform your space! I’d love to hear your favorite way to freshen up your home too!
