Pottery Barn Teen Bedroom Green and Black

After six years of the same bedding for Miss O, the time has come for a change.  As I mentioned in my previous post, Olivia is sporty spice meets gamer girl. I decorated her room when she was two and transitioning to a big girl bed.  I picked a look that she could grow into as she aged, but what I didn't anticipate was her personality.  The girly-girl room doesn't work for her.  She doesn't like pink. Her favorite colors are green and black. 

With that in mind, I ordered the above bedding and started designing her new space.  I plan to paint black or green vertical stripes on the wall where her bed is placed. I'm leaning more towards green, but that could change.  

Olivia has had this furniture since she turned two.  It's constructed very well and will last her through college and into adulthood. Provided her taste does not change.  I love white furniture. White furniture is easy to decorate around. It's a blank canvas. Everything looks great with it.  

I love the pin board with the varsity letter monogram! The letters are sporty and hint at Olivia's love for running and soccer.  

One request Olivia had was for a window seat.  She has a wall that would be perfect for built-ins.  My husband and I are going to tackle this project. We have never built anything....wish us luck!  When I showed her the plans for her room, she said "but I want a cushion on my window seat"....She's serious about this seat! 

Olivia is also a no nonsense girl.  She doesn't like clutter. She likes things fresh and clean. No fuss! With this in mind, I'm keeping the art and decor simple. Focusing on key pieces as focal points to speak loudly, like the sunburst mirror above the nightstand.  No knick knacks.

I would love to install a cool modern light fixture. However, we all like sleeping with fans on in our bedrooms.  So her white fan will have to do.  

I can't wait to get started on her space and post the progress. I'm making a trip to Benjamin Moore this weekend to select paint options.  I also want to put a chalk board wall in her room, but I'm not sure where at this point.  

This is the last post I will do until next year.....

Happy New Year....May 2016 be filled with excellent health and wealth....but most importantly LOVE!



  1. I love it! I think it's a design that will really continue to work for her as she grows! Her taste is so mature!

    1. She asked for a few changes...has decided she does not want a built in window seat now...hum...ha!

  2. I think it's neat, kind of collegiate looking.

    1. Thanks! Olivia will be able to grow into this room for sure! :)
