Glamorous bedroom themes for teenagers…

Fashion and style savvy teenagers have a demanding eye for detail and design whatever their particular fashion and theme preferences. Glamour is never far from most people’s wish list when it comes to imagery and dress-sense and the younger generation are no exception to the rule. So when the time comes for a bedroom makeover for a teenage daughter consider incorporating some glamorous accents which might just be the perfect look for a young socialite who has friends to stay or for any girl with sophisticated tastes. It is a design statement that marks a child’s transition from a young child to a more mature individual, with the bonus that that glamorous bedroom design can be achieved easily and with great success on limited budgets, or with only a little more outlay for grander makeover schemes…

Rich sumptuous bedding is an instant way to create a glamorous room statement, as because in the average modern bedroom, the bed takes up so much space, an appealing modern or more traditional metal bedstead or wooden bed design with lavish linens, creates a bold focal point. Look out for rich fabrics with a contemporary edge, such as matte satin if you are creating a modern vibe, or for materials featuring a metallic sheen or accents, or heavy damasks creating a feeling of lavishness and old world glamour. For a more inexpensive option, look for richly coloured bedding and incorporate luxurious touches with accent cushions or silk effect pillow cases.

A Victorian inspired reproduction iron bed in darker finishes with enchanting brass or porcelain detailing, will always be the definitive glamour statementfor any bedroom scheme, but where space or budgets are restrictive, you may wish to forgo the bedstead or headboard route, and instead create an accent wall at the head of the bed to draw the eye and create focus. Use dark glamorous wallpaper in a bold or oversized print to create the mood or consider upholstering the wall French-style for an even more dramatic statement. If your teen is interested in art or has a particular theme preference, take this into account when making the selection, or trawl Interiors magazines and the internet for inspiration. For more traditional tastes, tone-on-tone fleur de lis patterns or Laura Ashley style cricket stripes are worth considering, whilst teenagers with a bold personality might appreciate an accent wall painted in a vibrant, saturated version of their favourite colour or a dramatic floral wallpaper pattern featuring orchids or lilies.

Bold rich colours bring inviting glamour to the bedroom, with pastel shades better suited to more restrained décor schemes. Deep greys, purples, greens and burgundy hues all have a part to play here, and slate grey walls, for example make a dramatic statement when paired with white accents. Jewel tones and metallic accents are equally inviting, and consider bringing those colours to life with some dramatic lighting above the bed for a touch of old world Hollywood glamour. Consider customising chandeliers to complement any room style from traditional to contemporary, with ornate chandelier designs with their multi crystal reflectivesurfaces being particularly appealing for a vintage touch.

Conclude the scheme with bold classy accents that turn up the glamour temperature. Keep the number of features and accessories to a minimum, but ensure that each element, as in the case of that accent wall or glamorous bedstead, makes a statement. Look out for example, for lamps in dark moody designs, a plush dark accent bedside rug, or sleek black and white framed prints or photos with gallery lighting for modern room themes. Choose pieces of furniture that complement the bed and provide practical storage solutions, such as a romantic steamer trunk or armoire to eliminate bedroom clutter and offer undiluted charm and timeless style…
