Young at Heart

For those who are no longer 'little' yet not completely grown, tweens' bedrooms need an element of play. This hanging chair is a comfy spot to read a book or text with friends. Woven baskets store extra blankets and pillows or keep dirty laundry out of sight.

Opt for an Animated Style

Anchored by an area rug exploding with colorful flowers, this tween space is full of pattern and texture. Wallpaper featuring a subtle arrow motif sets a mint-green scene behind the bright yellow bed decked in a mix of navy gingham and graphic prints. A faux fur bench boasts a shaggy texture in solid white so it won't compete with the already color-filled room.

Make a Statement With Paint

Paint is a low-commitment way to dress up a tween's space while still scoring major style points. Here, the modern bull's-eye pattern not only creates a striking graphic element, but it also incorporates five neutral hues that can be used throughout the rest of the room's design.

Shop Savvy

Tween tastes are ever-evolving, so avoid splurging on expensive decor and instead hit local thrift or antique stores for items you can make over to fit their current style. Not only does thrifting save money, adding one-of-a-kind pieces to their space will make it feel more special. Plus, shopping for and refurbishing your finds is an opportunity to pull your kiddo away from her phone for a little one-on-one time.
