Tween Bedroom Makeover for Sofia

Hi!

Today I am SO excited to be sharing Sofia’s bedroom upgrade with you all! I absolutely loved creating this space for her and seeing the reaction on her face when I showed her the room! Sofia loves two things all things white, along with simple gold accents. I kept both of these things in mind while I helped design this new space for her. Her grandparents were nice enough to purchase all of the bedroom furniture for her. This was her birthday/graduation gift and we are very lucky and thankful for that:) Sofia and I selected all of her furniture from Wayfair.com. We have had so much luck with everything we purchased from them in the past so I thought it would be a great place to purchase all of her bedroom furniture as well.

Here was the initial design board that I created for this space. Design boards are essential to begin with when redesigning any space. Visually seeing the furniture and the other elements you would like to add into a room are key to making sure you really like what you are about to purchase. We did a gold, black, and white color scheme throughout and it turned out so great:)

As you can see all of the furniture is white but different shades which gives the room as you can see a contrast in itself. What was great about ordering from Wayfair was the delivery process which was all so new to me. They not only delivered everything to our house but they brought it into the room that it needed to go to and it WAS already assembled! Was not expecting that at all but was so pleasantly surprised because usually furniture is left outside of your front door step.

Some of the items we used to decorate here space are all linked below:

This is the throw we bought for Sofia’s bedding to go over the top. Throw blankets are like finishing touches to a bed.

I LOVE this fringe pillow. It has gold sequins sewed into it and it pops perfectly on Sofia’s bed:)

We accessorized her room with a lot of the same frames we had in her previous bedroom but we did add in some gold accents because Sofia LOVES gold. We got a lot of the frames and accessories below from TJMAXX. What is great about this room is that it is now a relaxing oasis for Sofia to go to when she gets home from school and unwinds. The desk in her room is so important for her to utilize for studying, writing essays, and getting things done.

 

I really like my new room because it has a nice gold decorations like the pineapples that I mixed with everything that I LOVE!

Sofia’s Bathroom!

 

Designing Sofia’s bathroom in our new home was so fun for me! I knew when I began the design of this space I wanted to do something fun, practical, and timeless. In a way this bathroom reminds me of our honeymoon when we visited Paris which was unintentional but also very special. The color scheme I decided on was brass lighting along with black accessories. My inspiration for this space really came through different elements I knew I wanted and I knew Sofia would LOVE. I wanted something with clean lines, and a bit modern. Completing the space with a brass light fixture as well as a nice over-sized tall scalloped black mirror for above the vanity helped really tie this space together.

If you have been following along with me on insta stories you know the subway tile you see was actually something I added after I had picked out the tile and the vanity. I am SO happy I pulled the trigger on the subway tile because it really completes the space and is a beautiful focal point. Having never had subway tile in a home before I was anxious to see how it looked when completed. It is so easy to clean, and what is great about it is you can still add in fun pops of color within this space and not worry about anything clashing. Subway tile is also perfect for a kids bathroom because it is SO easy to clean and you never have to worry about the walls getting water on them because the tile is their to protect that.

The flooring was done in a herringbone pattern and what is great about this tile color is it hides dirt very well and you are not having to constantly clean it. I am in LOVE with this pattern!

The only challenges we had in this space were drilling in the mirror into the subway tile. Andy had to buy a specific bit at Home Depot for this but once that was purchased it was very easy to drill into. I recommend researching how to do this before you drill anything into tile. The other challenge was installing the light which the builders did for us because you need a certain tool to cut into the tile and install a light. This required a builder and a technician.
