I finally completed the Everest of all bedroom designs here at our new house. My tween girl beachy boho bedroom.
Or at least it started off boho, now it’s morphed into boho/black & white/vintage beachy/put a pompom on everything and call it a day. My 10 year old daughter likes to change her clothes at least 3 times a day, so that should have clued me in that decorating her room was going to be an ever evolving process.
First she wanted aqua walls and colorful boho bedding, cue the cute anthropologie quilt at the end of her bed.
Then she decided black and white was her new must have decor trend. Thankfully I found this striped PB Teen duvet cover on sale along with some cute black and white pillows to add in the mix.
Boho – check! Black and white – check!
But wait, she also really misses her Papa and Gigi down in Florida, so wouldn’t it be cool if it felt like the beach in here?? Picture this request with bright blue puppy dog eyes… Here comes the cute vintage beachy wall art gallery.
Beach house vibes – check!
And just when I thought we were in the home stretch, she mentioned she really missed her canopy in her old room. Which was actually just what the room was missing (she gets it from her mama).
My awesome mother-in-law helped me sew 2 PB Teen drapes together to make this canopy. I think I’ll do a tutorial on how we made it soon, if you guys would be interested in that?
So boho/black & white/vintage beachy/topped off with a canopy and we are all smiles around here!
We really did have the best time pouring over magazines and websites looking for the perfect pillows and art. Although I will say, I could have done without bringing home 6 different rugs home and back again ;)
I found this dresser at a local flea market for $30 and it had these cute rope pulls which fit right in with our laid back vibe.
She loves to keep her weekly rotation of library books up here on the dresser along with her favorite polaroids of friends and Charlie (our pup). Let’s also pretend I remembered to clean the mirror.
Her desk was a fun Hobby Lobby find on clearance. I did a bit of a white wash over the wood top, because it was a yellow toned pine. We dropped a little more $$ on her furry yoga ball chair. Which I sold the Mr. on, because it’s supposed to help her concentrate when she does her homework. She’s getting straight A’s so I’m gonna go ahead and give some credit to her bouncing around like a lunatic while doing math facts.
Of course her favorite thing in the room is her hanging chair/flying trapeze. I actually bought this when we were building, so the guys built extra support up in the ceiling joists to hang this swing. We hung it with a heavy duty porch swing bolt and it can handle up to 400 lbs. Which is a good thing, because my kids have an entire circus act they do on this thing, and yes my walls have the dents to show for it.
I stole this basket off our coffee table to hang above her bed. Side note – when you can’t find your hammer anywhere, a meat mallet is the perfect substitute, I’m sure that’s how the pro’s do it too…
I originally bought this sort of straw flower looking puff thing from Hobby Lobby to hang above there, but it was too small on it’s own. I love the texture it adds layered over the basket and it makes it the perfect size.
I added these hanging plants in the corner for a little pop of life. Normally I’m a total plant lady, but these are really good faux greens. I didn’t want to deal with watering and dripping all over the floor. Not to mention the last time I gave her a real plant she drowned it every day until it finally cried uncle.
Ok sorry for the picture overload, it’s just so good to have this project done finally. Does it totally fit in with the rest of our lake house cottage style? No, but you are only 10 once and she loves it ;)
