A woman’s bed room will get a Swedish cottage type look with thrifted classic makeovers, Scandinavian wallpaper, and bedding sample play.
Olivia’s Swedish cottage type blue teen bed room is completed and is SO DARN CUTE that I simply wish to transfer in myself!
Isn’t this bed room a lot extra quaint than the day we moved in?
When she was in kindergarten, we gave Olivia’s room a pink makeover with butterflies throughout, however now that she’s approaching fifth grade, she requested a “huge woman / teen” area. Nevertheless, she needed it to look “old-fashioned” or, in different phrases, “classic”, so a cottage type bed room felt like the suitable course.
Olivia selected the paint colour, wallpaper, artwork, and curtains after which requested me to create the remainder to be shocked by the top consequence. So I ran with it!
Designing woman rooms is one among my favourite issues because it takes me again to my years rising up all the time redecorating my very own room after I had one million room concepts in my head and did inside design sketches on the age of 16.
Our cousin made that pencil sketch of Olivia when she was 3, so it appeared proper to hold it on the door to present it a bit of highlight.
The Sandberg Ragnvi wallpaper from Scandinavian Wallpaper positively provides all the wow issue that just about appears like a wall mural. The classic print is a Nineteen Twenties revival from Sweden, which feels additional particular to us since a part of our household is from Sweden.
I stored envisioning a number of sample play in right here, so I added a block print fake wallpaper to the ceiling utilizing cheap hen decals as a nod to Olivia’s nursery as a child.
We added beadboard under the chair rail and painted the doorways and trim with Sherwin Williams Smoky Blue. It’s such a reasonably colour!
To distinction the floral, I needed so as to add a punch of geometric print, so this multicolored plaid rug balanced the classic wallpaper with a contemporary contact. It’s so plushy smooth and low upkeep, so it’s excellent for a bed room.
There are such a lot of colours on this rug: darkish blue, olive inexperienced, rust purple, blush pink, amethyst purple, so it allowed me to introduce different colours within the room.
Since this child’s room is for a ten year-old woman, I didn’t wish to create an area that takes itself too critically. So I had enjoyable with a number of sample within the bedding.
This stitched geometric quilt seems to be and appears like an actual classic coverlet that I paired with this refined floral cover cowl and down cover. The taupe gingham pillow and mauve pillows included some heat tones towards all the blue. These yellow embroidered sheets have been the proper last girly contact.
To stability the blue tones, I hung these mauve velvet curtains and blackout Roman shades in Bonaire Flaxen.
Despite the fact that Olivia was adamant that she needed completely no pink, apparently mauve doesn’t depend as “pink”. That’s her logic not less than. 😉
I appeared all over the place for a pair of secondhand nightstands with completely no luck, however this pair of traditional stained nightstands offered loads of storage with the trendy perform of an area within the again to run cords and chargers to an influence strip.
These trendy brass and rattan lamps added a touch of Scandinavian type too.

The black and brass desk lamp is nice for having on research nights, however this setup work properly as a conceit at any time when she desires to play with make-up too.
The closet doorways nonetheless had 80s type lacquered brass knobs, so we swapped them out for these vintage type door knobs. I found a simple approach to replace the outdated hinges by brushing the hinges with a layer of Rub n Buff.
Olivia is a complete fan woman. And by fan woman I imply she HAS to sleep with a ceiling fan on each night time. I discovered this gorgeous wicker fandelier, and it really works each bit nearly as good (if not higher) than a standard ceiling fan.
I didn’t wish to cling an excessive amount of on these partitions in order that the wallpaper may shine, however Olivia picked out these vintage altered portraits with a lady blowing a bubble and a lady making a foolish face. Aren’t they so cheeky?!
They’ve big personalities like Olivia does, that’s for positive.
For the remainder of this dresser area, I Rub n Buffed this mirror I discovered secondhand for $7. I painted this $15 thrift retailer lamp to grow to be an Anthropologie dupe lamp.
By the way in which, these fake hydrangeas are one of the best tremendous low funds pretend flowers I’ve ever seen!
