Girl Glam Bohemian Bedroom Inspiration

Love Boho glam? This plan for a Glam Bohemian bedroom is the inspiration you need to effortlessly strike a blend of two worlds with relaxed, thrown together retro-bohemian ambiance with chic glamor.

I’m feeling a sense of De Ja Vu! Once again, I’m taking on the One Room Challenge (aka the ORC), hosted by Calling it Home! For those of you who may not have heard of it, the ORC is an online blogger event that brings together those with a love of design and challenges them to transform a room in just six weeks. Yes, you heard that right – six weeks!

Wanna catch up on the progress? It’s all right here!

This is my fourth ORC to date. In the past, I’ve made over a multi-purpose dining room/playroom, a colorful, an art-deco inspired game room, and a modern eclectic front foyer. This time, I’m taking on a teen girls bedroom, which also happens to the smallest and the room with the most awkward layout found in my home. I’m excited to get started, so let’s get to it!

The Before

I’ve taken on this room in the past. It’s been a few years, and my stepdaughter’s needs are now entirely different. At nearly 15, she’s into makeup (she has AMAZING skills), clothes, her friends, and cheerleading and much less into zebra print, singing, teal, and American Girl dolls.

The room is s.m.a.l.l. and has a poorly placed door or a window on every wall. Believe it or not, this is a picture of AFTER we rearranged to give her a bit more space!

In addition to that, the closet is tiny.. with a sloped ceiling inside – not a great option for a teenage girl.  Excuse the mess – there’s real life happening inside!

The desk area is neither conducive to doing homework OR makeup.

 

It’s time for a change!

We’ve been brainstorming various design elements for about a year now – the color scheme, the accessories, and the bedding. Her likes? Pretty things, with a casual, “thrown together” vibe and the girl LOVES pineapples. She needs a room that reflects all of those things, not to mention a larger bed. A place for homework wouldn’t hurt either.  We want her room here to be filled with things that she loves, and to be true ‘her’ – fun,  a little bit fancy, playful, and gorgeous!

Here’s some of the inspiration I’ve gathered for this space… if pinning, please pin from the original post – photos link to originals.

So, are you seeing our vision? Gray and silver tones mixed with soft pastels, a new, larger built-in closet maybe. A sizeable make-up vanity/homework area. Medium wood tones, with touches of glam and pops of bohemian style. In other words…

A Girls Glam Bohemian Bedroom – with an Edge

What is Bohemian Glam you ask?

Bohemian Glam = 60s glam with modern bohemian sophistication

So, here’s what I’m hoping to accomplish:

TODO:

  • Create space for a larger bed
  • Include additional closet space
  • Provide well-lit make-up vanity
  • Homework desk
  • Add Sitting/hangout area
I can’t wait to get started – six weeks go by fast, especially with a full list of DIY projects! Thankfully, I already HAVE started, just by committing to a design! I hope you’ll pop back in and follow along!

    Oh my gosh – we can’t wait to see this come together! She will be so excited to have this grown-up space. We know all too well how hard it is to design around ill-placed windows and doors. In our case it’s weird angles everywhere. We know you will work your magic!

      Thanks, Jessica! I’m excited, too.. Although I love Bohemian style it’s a bit outside what I normally do. I’m excited to step out of the box a wee bit!
