Glamorous Teen Girl's Room

Designer Courtney Blanton combined five-star hotel style with old Hollywood glamour to create a sophisticated bedroom this 14-year-old fashionista won't quickly outgrow.

Tweens Bedroom

Design to Suit Their Interests

Fourteen-year-old Sarah Kane loves acting, dancing, singing and fashion. She wanted a sophisticated look for her room that captures the glamour of old Hollywood style. Designer Courtney Blanton delivered with luxurious fabrics and glitzy touches.

Add Furniture That's Multifunctional

Mom and daughter share a moment at Sarah's sleek Parsons desk, which does double duty as a vanity. Desktop fabric bins are a handy place to stash school supplies and makeup.

Tweens Bedroom

Maximize Architectural Features

Floor space is tight in the 154-square-foot bedroom, but the 12-foot-tall barrel ceilings offer an opportunity to decorate vertically.


Bring On the Glitz

This modern-meets-traditional chandelier fills the room with soft light and is a dramatic focal point.

Mirrored Bedside Table

Add Reflective Surfaces

A mirrored bedside table provides handy storage and adds a glam touch to the room. This is a timeless piece that Sarah will treasure for many years to come.

Monogrammed Bed

Steal Style From Boutique Hotels

Sarah's monogrammed bed linens add a personalized touch while the tall tufted headboard and polished silver sconces flanking the bed are boutique-hotel chic.

Tweens Dresser

Old Is New

Soft yellow ginger jar lamps are a vintage find that bring in more color and work with the room's old Hollywood style. Check thrift stores, garage sales or flea markets to inexpensively find a matching pair.

Ram Wall Decor

Add Quirky Touches

The whimsical mirrored shield and plaster ram's head are hung high over the bed. Centered on a backdrop of iridescent roses, the shield fills the space between the room's 12-foot ceiling and upholstered headboard.

Desk Chair

All in the Details

This raspberry velvet chair was formerly used in the dining room. Re-covered in a rich fabric and embellished with nail-head trim, it now serves as Sarah's desk chair.

Venetian Mirror

Use Mirrors to Visually Expand a Small Space

A flea market find, this Venetian mirror adds another touch of glitz, reflects light and helps the small room feel larger.
