High-Fashion Hangout

As kids become tweens and teenagers, they often love to start expressing their personal style by way of bedroom decor. Take a look at these hip hangouts and bedrooms to see how to help them embrace the color and eclectic look they love. Sophisticated furniture, funky lighting and wild colors inspired Victoria Sanchez of Victoria Sanchez Interiors to create this teenager's getaway decked out in Missoni fabrics and furniture. Design: Victoria Sanchez

Bold Poster

The large framed poster above the bed is the focal point of this bedroom, bringing in the only source of bold color. Design: Michael Moeller

Sleek Daybed

Daybeds are the perfect solution for small teen rooms since they double as a spot for sleeping and a place to sit with their friends. The unexpected color scheme of celery, olive, blue-gray and tangerine, to the clever space planning, makes this design extra fun. Design: Brian Patrick Flynn

Camping Cool

Bright colors in the chairs, teepee and bookshelf add youthfulness to the adult aesthetics in this space. The chairs are nothing more than piled up cushions that can be spread out during sleepovers. Design: Martha Angus and Eche Martinez/Photo: Jason Kisner

Sweet Like Candy

This colorful, candy-inspired girls' room is perfect for a tween girl looking to feel a bit more grown up. A sophisticated yet youthful color palette, along with transitional furnishings and a private candy bar turn this space into a cool hangout. Design: Genevieve Gorder

Saturated Palette

A tween or teen's room is a great place to try a saturated color palette. The deep shade of pink in this room offers a more mature take on the hue that's so popular in little girls' rooms. Design: Linda Woodrum

Unusual Accents

Genevieve Gorder spices up this colorful and eclectic room with handcrafted accents. A custom turquoise chandelier, stenciled wall design and one-of-a-kind side chair create a cozy, personalized space. Design: Genevieve Gorder

Reading Nook

Teens love a place of their own, even if that means a small nook where they can curl up to read or text with friends. Splashes of turquoise and yellow are vibrant against the painted parquet floors of this colorful reading nook. Design: Kriste Michelini/Photo: Jason Kisner

Fresh Walk-In Closet

What's retro to a parent is likely a fresh design to a teenager. The geometric look and bright colors of mod style seen in this walk-in closet are always popular with the under-20 crowd. Design: Shelley Cahan/Photo: Jason Kisner

Appealing Window Seat

A secretary-style desk is included in the custom cabinetry design of this stylish playroom. A fun hot pink is echoed on the window seat cushion, roman shade trim and Moroccan pouf — all of which are easily changed should color tastes change. Design: Fiorella Design/Photo: Frank Paul Perez

Cozy Palette

Choosing colors for a teen boy isn't always easy, nor is designing a room to grow with him. A soft gray paint on three walls and the ceiling of this room create a neutral and cozy retreat, but the cinnamon-colored wall behind the bed provides a splash of energy. Values of gray from dark charcoal to light gray in the bedding and draperies relate to the walls and ceiling, while the chrome lamps and accessories complemented the grays and added a touch of bling.

Accent Wall

A tween's room is a great place to play with fun colors and patterns. The turquoise accent wall and maps offer a wide color palette to choose from, while black and white accents ground the space. Design: TerraCotta Properties

Rainbow Energy

The rainbow of colors offers an energetic punch that is both youthful enough to be fun but mature enough to be appreciated in the teenaged years. Design: Christine Thompson

Whimsical Daybed

The whimsical look of the daybed frame offers the look of an oversized sofa — a perfect spot to sit and gossip with friends. Design: Kathleen DiPaolo

Teenager's Room With a Powerful Punch

Continuing her theme of "Bermuda in the city," designer Anna Donohue created a teenage retreat that is replete with fun patterns and colors. The bed and wall covering are simple in design, but graphic patterns in the pillows, Roman shade and bulletin board give the room a bold look. A black industrial-style lamp adds whimsy and spunk.

Teen Bedroom With Bold Braille Wall Flats

The minimalist design of this modern bedroom is the perfect setting for the bold, blue Braille wall installation. A sphere chair and sleek work station make this a cool place to hang out for a teen boy.

Modern Teen's Bedroom Features Kelly Green Accents

A bold kelly green desk chair and accessories really pop against the crisp white walls in this modern teen's room. On one side of the room, two Roman shades feature a black and white print of Elvis repeated three times on each shade. The spacious, modern desk on the adjacent wall is the perfect workspace for afternoon homework.

Kids Room With Striped Bedding

Whimsical wallpaper and striped bedding make a bold impression in the kids room.

Boy's Bedroom Features Playful, Quirky Style

An array of fun, quirky accessories adorns a midcentury modern desk in this boy's bedroom. The fun doesn't stop there — colorful skateboards are mounted in a row above the bed, creating an unexpected and eye-catching form of artwork.

Boy's Room Comes to Life With Ombre Lacquer Wall Finish

Designed for the young man of the house, Karter's Krash Pad at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2015 is brought to life with a vertical ombre lacquer wall finish by Willem Racke inspired by rock formations along the Pacific coast. Designer Susan Lind Chastain selected a Jean Paul Gaultier fabric with crushed car metal design for daybed pillows to add to the hip youthfulness of the space.

Boho Chic

The inspiration for this grand design was a dream catcher from the client’s mother. Like a dream catcher, the room would have the perfect blend of colors, textures, patterns and materials. Urban elements were to be mixed with traditional, organic with geometric.

Girl's Purple Bedroom With Patterned Ceiling

Thanks to a bold color scheme of violet, black, white and gold, this designer-caliber tween girl's bedroom is as appealing to the tween herself as it is to her young parents. From the royal palette to the vintage pieces and fashion-inspired artwork, she'll feel blissfully at home here for years to come.

Sassy Stripes

A wild mix of patterns in bold colors make this teen girl's bedroom a flirty, fun space. Maintaining the same color palette throughout the design keeps the room feeling cohesive, not crazy.

Inspired by Nature

Like sun rays, a yellow chevron print stretches its way across the ceiling of this kid's room. A textured area rug reminiscent of grass brings the outside in, while the hanging birdcage chair adds a fun place for reading or daydreaming.

Dramatic Design

A teen girl's bedroom features a dramatic black canopy bed and funky modern style.

Blue Teen Bedroom With Rope Swing

Bold-pattern textiles animate this colorful teen bedroom. Billowing curtains frame the bedroom, helping to set it apart from a small seating area anchored by a graphic rug. A rope swing adds a whimsical touch beside a red ottoman.

Minimalist Cool

White walls are the perfect blank canvas for colorful art and pillows. Although minimalistic, this Scandinavian style girl's bedroom boasts plenty of charming elements, like the gold chandelier, white fur rug and graphic throw pillow.
