Teen Oasis

This Mom wanted to do something amazing for her daughter who was soon to turn 13.  She wanted to have someone create an amazing teen oasis as the key ‘you’re 13’ gift for her youngest child.  She searched and searched and called around and finally found Distinctive Interior Designs, LLC on Houzz.com.

All she knew was that she wanted an upholstered headboard and some mirrored furniture accents (on a reasonable budget).  She left the rest up to our Lead Designer, Nicole.

Original Room & Inspiration

The prior room had a chairrail, thick damask stencil specialty paint on one wall, and heavy more mature looking drapes.  It felt short (due to the chairrail), a bit disjointed (with it being a future-teen room, but having heavy drapes and damask details), and needed to be refreshed.

Distinctive Interior Designs helped Mom & Daughter develop a floor plan and a silvery sophisticated design concept.  Beyond the predetermined requests for an upholstered headboard and a few mirrored furniture pieces, these two pillows helped create the springboard into the new look.

Shimmery End Result!

Here’s the end result!  We removed the chairrail, painted the walls grey and used that thick damask stenciled specialty paint to our advantage by doing a silver rub over it.

Sparkle and shimmer:  mirrored dresser and night stand, iridescent blush blackout Roman shades with crystal trim, silver thread sheers on chrome rods with crystal finials, and a silver silver 3-dimensional flowers above the bed.

Cool textures:  Fresh crisp white shaggy carpet, faux-croc desk, velvet desk chair, and silky bedding.

Happy Teen, Thrilled Mom!

Nicole was just about as thrilled with the end result as Mom & daughter were!  As she put it, “You know you’ve done ‘good’ when even a teenager is willing to smile for the after pictures!”
