The Quintessential Teen Room...

We are often blessed enough to work in many beautiful homes and lucky enough to be surrounded by clients with great taste in design. This room is one of my latest favorites. It was designed by a 13-year old.




It was her idea to have the emblems on one wall, the other three walls are painted a hot pink. I handed her the Benjamin Moore fan deck and she selected all of the colors. She's got a future career in interior design I'd say! She was such a delightful teen. I couldn't believe she wanted to be in the room the entire day - even while we snapped chalk lines and marked where the stencils would be placed. Normally we advise clients to keep the project area free of all foot traffic and some decorative painters are often reluctant to have clients hang out all day for intellectual property reasons and because sometimes it's a little distracting.

My favorite part of this room is the glitter glaze we applied to all the circle emblems. You can't see the subtle glittery effect in the photos, but the shimmer is there.

Don't you know... everything is better with glitter! Except chicken as one five year old client explained.

That's an awesome idea to have the child participate in the design process. Looks fabulous!

Where did you buy the stencils for the wall??? I think they are really cute but can't find anything remotely close anywhere.
