Ideas for a Teenage Girl's Bedroom Inspired by ~ P O T T E R Y B A R N



My beautiful daughter Grace and I spent hours on the internet, more specifically on Pinterest, looking for inspiration to redecorate a teenage girl's bedroom, and let me tell you it was exhausting!!! So much to choose from regarding gorgeous rooms, but the style that kept recurring in our search of what we liked best is that of Pottery Barn. On one hand, who doesn't like Pottery Barn? And on the other...not everyone can afford their beautiful bedding and furnishings, including us. Naturally the next best thing to do was to let PB be our inspiration. We loved the bright florals along with the clean color and lines of the furnishings,  So right at the end of August Grace picked out her bedding, and after Thanksgiving she and I painted over the old purple strips with a soothing blue color from Benjamin Moore aptly named Crystal Blue. I was so proud of Grace picking such a pretty color...she gets all kinds of kudos for the color choice!

Here is how Grace's room has been painted since she was age four...ten years ago. Gosh that went fast! 




Yeah I think she was ready for a fresh updated look. 
The following pics contain some ideas we would like to incorporate into Grace's new bedroom design.

I love all of the bookshelves around the bed and the idea of decorative baskets under the bed. Lord knows teen girls need lots of storage! 


  What got my attention in this next room is the stencil or decal work around the window. We opted on white shutters instead of any curtains or drapes, so this idea would really work great in Grace's room.

 Pottery Barn

Another Pottery Barn item we fell in love with is this adorable furry desk chair. And guess what...I found one just like it at Home Goods for only $79!!!


So away went the hot pink and distressed painted furniture, and covered all of it in a crisp white. The four poster bed was a ReStore score for only $24, the bedding is from Macy's and the faux window shutters are from Home Depot. The cute little "G" pillow was a fun find at the Christmas Tree Shop.


This is a pretty good start but we still need to finish her desk area. Since Grace is so into art, I'd like for her to create a gallery wall of her framed artwork next to the closet, which is just opposite of the foot of the bed. We did pick up some fun items to organize her desk area over the past weekend.

Hoping to wrap this project up soon so Grace can really enjoy her new space. Then it is on the much needed laundry room makeover.

Wishing you a great rest of your day and don't forget to stop by tomorrow evening for our 101st Share Your Style link party. The fun starts at 7pm EST!

Share Your Style Link Party #100


Wow.....it's our 100th "Share Your Style" party today and all of us here behind the scenes are thrilled.  We have really grown and so appreciate all who join us every week with all their inspiration and creativity.  As a token of our appreciation, we would like to have a fun,  little give-away this week,  randomly choosing a winner from all the party sign-ups this week.  It will be a surprise give-away, but I know you'll love it.   Thanks again for all of you.  Lynn, that's me, of The Vintage Nest blog, is your host this week, so I get to choose the lucky winner.  :)  Before we get the party started, I would love to share with you some of my favorites from last week.  If you were chosen, we would love for you to grab the "feature" button and share on your blog.



FEATURES

I was immediately drawn to Two Twenty One's Chocolate Bar.......such a fun feature to have for the upcoming super bowl game and you can get very fancy with it for the adults, adding different kinds of liqueurs.   So much fun!



Anita, at Cedar Hill Farmhouse, shares with us some tips on transitioning from holiday to winter decor.  I love all her ideas.  In fact, I used one of them, deciding to keep my preserved boxwood wreaths up for the winter.

 

Krista, of the blog, Happy Housie, did a compilation of her most favorite home make-overs this past year.  I am in love with this room.......thank you Krista for sharing


Okay.....I confess.....I am about to admit one of my obsessions.  :)  I love to watch the Bachelor, Bachelorette, and Paradise.  I can't help it....don't make fun of me.  :)  So when I saw this post by Pink Peppermint Design, I just had to re-share.   This would work just as well for a Valentine's or engagement party too. :)

The Share Your Style team would really appreciate it if you make sure there is a link back to the party in your blog post somewhere and please visit other bloggers for new friendships and interests.

Share Your Style Link Party #99

Hello and Happy New Year to you all! Wow I just can't believe we are already at 2017 and that this is our 99th Share Your Style party!!! This week your party host is me, Barbara, from the blog 21 Rosemary Lane.


There have been a couple of changes here at SYS in the new year. We had to say goodbye to two of our party co-hosts, Deserae from Peeking thru the Sunflowers and Julie from Little Farmstead. Sad for us but exciting things on the horizon for them. So we want to say thank you Des and Julie, for all your help in co-hosting over the last year, and we wish you both all the best in 2017! 

Now on to our big news...we would like to find another co-host to add to our
Share Your Style team.
Could it be you??? If you are interested in joining our team please contact one of us using the contact information on any one our blogs. Here at 21 Rosemary Lane my info is under the tab at the top titled Meet Barbara, or just click here.




OK now it is time to move on to...


The first link that caught my eye comes from Suzie over at the beautiful blog Worthing Court. It is this Classic Red Velvet Cake recipe with a cream cheese frosting. Doesn't it look simply amazing? Yeah so much for that cleansing diet I wanted to start!


Next is this stunning wreath tutorial from the blog How to Make a Burlap Wreath. The wreath is actually for Christmas, but it is so gorgeous that I would have to leave it up straight through the winter!


Pam from Everyday Living linked up an amazing tour of a ski home in Utah. It is truly breathtaking!


And finally Jenna, from the blog Wife in Progress, shared how to make your own darling weathered wood frames. I just think they are so special and I love the sweet black and white photos paired with the rustic look of the frames.

And those are this week's features! If your link was featured make sure to grab our cute little button to proudly display on your blog.


Now on to the P-A-R-T-Y!!!

Note: It would be greatly appreciated if you'd kindly include a link back to Share Your Style somewhere on your blog or in the post you link up. Also be sure to visit other party goers so to make some new bloggy friends.

Top 10 Post of 2016 and Happy New Year



As 2016 is winding down and the baby New Year is right at hand, 
this year I thought it would be fun to take a look back and count down to number one, 21 Rosemary Lane's top ten posts.  

Number 10
(Just click on each image to see the entire post)

At the end of 2015 Mr. Rosemary Lane added white bead board to the kitchen walls and I painted the space above the bead board in Benjamin Moore's Chelsea Gray. But once spring rolled around I wanted to lighten up the kitchen by adding pretty pops of yellow.


Number 9

This year I purchased new drapes for our back porch but was in a bit of a conundrum of just how to hang them. Then while perusing the internet I fell in love with the idea of using galvanized electrical piping and conduits to create a rod system.


Number 8

Last March I found this solid wood cabinet on the side of the road. It was pretty beat up but after sanding it down I found the most beautiful wood underneath its dark stain. I decided to use the cabinet on our back porch to hold beverage glasses, bottles of seltzer and outdoor dishware.


Number 7

In the kitchen our newly painted hutch purchased from ReStore for only $40, took on a winter look using white ironstone and pretty rooster plates in black and white.


Number 6

This gorgeous Designer House I visited back in May is part of an annual fundraiser in Bucks County, Pa. Click here to see the home selected for the 2017 Designer House.


Number 5

A surprise to me that at the halfway point is the tutorial I wrote on how to create a pleasing to the eye mantelscape in only 4 easy steps..


The next 3 most popular posts are part of a seasonal home tours series put together by my sweet friend Marty from the blog A Stroll Thru Life.

Number 4

First up is my Spring Tour of 2016.


Number 3

Followed by the Summer Tour 2016.


Number 2

And finally my Autumn Home Tour.


Number 1

And finally the most viewed post of 2016 is actually my absolute favorite project of the year...Mr. Rosemary Lane's Kitchen Island transformation.


Quite the year in review I'd say. Looking forward to another year of great projects, wonderful tours and trips, and different ways of beautifying our home. How about you...what are planning for 2017??? 


Wishing you all much happiness and health in the New Year!
