Create a Funky Girls “Wallflower” Bedroom

Looking for a creative idea for decorating a pre-teen or teenage girl’s bedroom?  This imaginative and funky “Wallflower” room bursts with vibrant color and life.

The color scheme started with a hot pink and orange patterned bedspread.  This one was found at Bed, Bath & Beyond, but Pottery Barn Teen also has some great floral bedding choices. Any color combination works, let your daughter pick her favorite.

From there, two contrasting wall colors were chosen — bright orange and a pale pink based on this bedding pattern. Orange was painted on three walls, and the focal or accent wall was painted pale pink.

Now for the fun part, when mother and daughter do-it-yourselfers can share a creative bonding session — stencils!  Unique flower designs were stenciled onto the pale pink accent wall, and even on the white wooden blinds, which you can see when the blinds are closed. Hot pink, orange, yellow and even lime green were blended together, and flowers were layered on top of each other for an interesting effect.  A great way to include your daughter in the design process, making her appreciate her new space even more!

What really makes this room pop, however are the 3-dimensional paper “wallflowers” that are hung amid the stenciled ones.

Made from vividly dyed thick paper, these are not your typical wallflowers, content to fade into the background — instead they practically jump off the wall and demand to be noticed.

The flower heads used were daisies and peonies, in similar orange, magenta, pink and yellow tones.

The finishing touches include a reproduction European sign which reads “Marche aux Fleurs” (which is French for Flower Market), orange and pink accent pillows to coordinate with the patterned bedspread, and a floral fabric suspended light fixture.

Wallflower or not, it’s a room any girl would love.
