Pre-teen Bedroom Inspiration

My daughter S. is turning 12 soon and she has asked if I can re-do her bedroom.

Me: "Why? Don't you like the baby pink in your bedroom?"

S.: "Really??  You need to ask?"

Me: "But you picked out the colour?"

S.: " I was 6 years old!!!"


So, I think I'm going to give her a WHOLE bedroom makeover as birthday gift!

She has decided this year she doesn't want a birthday party, only have a friend over for a sleepover or something. Easy peasy.

She really like this colour combo from Sarah's House.

Accent wall:

Shy Blossom

ICI Paints #10GY 54/238

Wall colour:

Clear Sailing

ICI Paints #30BG 64/072

And I'm thinking an alcove like this...
(since S. tried unsucessfully to put a curtain up already)

(source unknown... if it's yours let me know so I can credit you)

I'm thinking if I build a platform for the bed then she can have more storage or maybe a trundle for sleepovers??

Her birthday is November 4th so I should just get a move on it.

What do you think of my plans so far.

I really like the colour combination and I love the alcove idea - privacy AND mess-hider (hee). I'm almost done Lisa's room. The walls are a similar shade of green (called 'sweet green') and we painted the ceiling a pale lavendar (called 'aria'). I'll post pictures when it's all done.
