A Classic Grownup Feminine Teen Room


This is my daughter's room at home, and I don't think I've shown it in about three years.
She loves French style furniture, but often likes the darker pieces.
And as elegant as this room is, many of the pieces were inexpensive second-hand finds in great shape.
This lovely mirror was a gift to her at Christmas, and it took the place of another that was moved.









This desk was another find, and it still has its key.
I am glad that she sticks to being herself in style and preferences, and it shows
in her elegant sophisticated taste. This is a restful, elegant, classic room.
We sometimes joke that she is a Parisian mouse, and I am a French country mouse.
How did she come to love these things? Well she was involved in decorating this home, and I've always taken her to the vintage stores. She even purchases a lot of her wardrobe as second-hand or vintage.









There are several things I would like to point out about this room. First, we are not afraid to mix more masculine pieces like the lamp with feminine pieces. I also love the fact that she likes deep rich color and black. Moreover, blue and white in whatever shades is classic and beautiful and almost neutral. The cabinet behind the bed has been with us awhile. It held toys when she was little and it has graduated to its grown look. Now, the bed has been pushed against it, and the bottom holds seldom used things. The top is left half open for books and display. Lastly, the beautiful linens are a mix of various lines that were on clearance, some from Target, clearly within reach. I love its Gustavian look.














The dark moodiness of this room, we call Byronic. Something we chose from our love of literature, and then applied here, because it explains her aesthetic. She found the soldier in a vintage market, and it might have been associated with liquor. The bed is campaign style, and that was new about five years ago.



















This chair was thirty dollars, and it is perfect condition. The blue table we painted ourselves.
Even though the styles are somewhat mixed they work together, because of their classic lines.
How do we find pieces? We visit vintage and second hand shops, and we only get it if we love it. If we love it, it will go.

Thank you for visiting.

  5. She has found her calling if she chooses... What a unique, moody, as you say, “Byronic” style.

  6. Wow, what a gorgeous and sophisticated room. I like the dark, moody colors for a bedroom, and the bed is stunning. I think one reason everything works is your daughter knows what she likes, and she's not afraid to bring disparate pieces into her space.

    1. Thank you, she bought the end tables and a lamp, sconce, and clock not pictured, and most of the accessories with her own savings. The funny thing is, I saw that mirror and thought that's exactly her style, and plus it repeats the shape of the bed and cabinet. When she saw it, she said she saw it months ago in the same shop and pointed it out to me, but we agreed we could never paint it, and it didn't work with our woods. I went in there around Christmas and was looking and saw that mirror, not knowing it was the one she liked, just knowing she loved that due to its shape and color. Vintage shops are the best. xo Su

  8. She has excellent taste, Su. Just lovely! I love the dark richness of the room and I love that she is true to herself and doesn't feel she has to be in on the "trend of the moment". You did a good job, Mom!!! xo Diana

  11. What a beautiful and classy room. Might be the time for your talented daughter to think of starting her own blog and maybe down the road it will help her to pay off her student loans. Such a lovely little chair. Decorating definitely appears to run in the family. Blessings to her and you.
