How to Make Your Tween's Room Rock
JK! Tweens are maybe sometimes the best and more often hellbent on destroying your peace of mind and maybe your wallet simultaneously. One thing we can all agree on – navigating the tween years will be much smoother if your tween has a sanctuary to retreat to.
for our tween dreams! We have curated some great examples of modern stylish design that’s playful and fun! Let’s be original.
Another important consideration is choosing design details and investing in a flexible aesthetic that would have some staying power as kids grow and evolve and want to change the vibe up a bit.
So… let’s look at some of the most stylish and savvy lighting, wallpaper, bedding, furniture and décor that we have rounded up for you and your tween to explore.
Try these wallpapers on for size
Your tween skater dude or betty will love this simple yet gritty skateboard diagram design wallpaper in black, white and grey. Skate or Die Wallpaper by Muffin & Mani for Milton & King (pictured) is a great choice for the tween dreaming of kickflips and curb grinding.
Likewise, the Boombox Wallpaper by Muffin & Mani for Milton & King is a perfect fit for a tween’s bedroom wall. Its durable special cellulose coating allows for easy cleaning and prevents scratching.
And Aimee Wilder's new greyscale Love Molecules pattern is comprised of twelve molecular formulas of neurochemicals essential for life, love, and happiness: adrenaline,
anandamide, androstadienone, dopamine, estrogen, gaba, norepinephrine, oxytocin, phenethylamine, serotonin, testosterone, and vasopressin. Perfect for the scientist or romantic in your family.
The Lovers Circus Wallpaper by Milton & King is designed by Jonathan Calugi and is simultaneously minimal and rich with
friends, lots to look at.
Try these great wall stickers by Ferm Living. You can arrange them in any manner you like. They would be great on a wall behind a bed, or maybe in a cluster that trails off above a doorframe.
Is your tween fairest of them all?
Accessories that pop!
We are fools for stools
Also, stools aren’t so big that your tween’s clutter can become an unmanageable mountain of junk. Like your couch or coffee table might, for instance.
Industrial chic meets the pop coloration of Andy Warhol in the Evan Iron Strips stool in a bright neon yellow hue. It is perfect as an accent piece, but not afraid to stand on its own as a focal point.
Statement lighting is delightful
Don’t shy away from using a bold light as a statement piece, but if you want to go with something more neutral, it should still be polished and sophisticated.
Your tween can express their personality in many ways with these lights, but they will all reinforce their modern style.
Get to work!
Cruise Desk by Euro Style is just the answer for any office space. It features two large unique drawers with slow closure system for all your desk top accessories. The large solid, durable black writing surface creates a timeless look that will compliment any work space.
Keep it together!
Who doesn't love a pouf?
We are also including some great storage ottomans from Burke Décor’s collection in case you need to add storage to the mix.
Hand Knitted Contemporary Wool Pouf in Purple from Chandra rugs is a fabulous color and offers some vibrant flavor to your tween room color palette.
The Martil Faux Leather pouf in gold is definitely not minimalist, which may appeal to your over the top tween.
Throwing a fit
We love the Kharaa Throw Blanket in Blush, but check out their light grey color way as well. And the Felina Throw Blanket in Black is just the right degree of moody...
As if your tween needed more reasons to stay in bed all day
reversible Chenevard Pure Silk Quilt and Sham from Designers Guild are smart and luxurious and give your tween extra style options.
Available in several different colorways.
Pillows that don't fight
Now the question is, how can your tween possibly choose just one? They are all so extremely delicious!
Burke Decor wants you to take your design traditions, your tween's fundamental loves and passions, and manifest them into a modern and flexible room style that will give them the space they need to grow into even more stylish teens.
