The Paint –
I chose to use Sherwin Wiliams Indigo Batik for the walls in a matte finish. I chose a matte finish because I wanted to embrace the depth of this color. Other finishes tend to bounce light and the color doesn’t tend to be as rich. Now, using a matte or flat finish in a teen’s bedroom a few years ago would have been a big NO-NO, a “what are you thinking? You do realize that you will be forever doing touch-ups and you are going to want to scream on a weekly basis” type of thing. But, not anymore, now Sherwin Williams Emerald line matte finish is AMAZING! It works hard, folks and I can finally embrace the matte finish in all its glory.
The ceiling was painted in Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray in a matte finish.
We wanted to use what we had on hand but after 35 years – the bachelor Cargo furniture was looking really tired and dated. I came up with a simple solution. I am working on a tutorial for you – in case you have some ancient furniture in need of a revamp. I did do some hunting and found a similar bed that I ended up using in my design board. You can click here for purchasing information- the bed is at a great price point but my makeover cost me about $8 and that’s pretty awesome for a fresh look!
The Bedding –
Here’s where I saved quite a bit. I purchased the majority of the bedding on Amazon. The lumbar pillow was a quick sew project. I ended up purchasing 6 different bedding options from Amazon – all with free returns. Online shopping can be a little scary so I hedged my bet.

– The Sheets –
Deep fitted sheets are a great way to disguise ugly box springs!
The Study Area –
Ok, this is where I splurged. I found the neatest desk, it looks like an airplane wing. It was just so fun and since this is a teenager’s room, I figured- fun still needed to be incorporated! I had every intention of reholstering an old desk chair but when I was out picking up a few frames from World Market – the most perfect desk chair jumped out in front of me and basically said – here I am, I have been waiting for you! Well, how could I refuse? Who am I to leave a fabulous chair behind? It helped that I saved in many other areas of the room design.
Tucked into the corner of the room near the window is a great little accent chair. My original one was unfortunately too big for the corner and it was out of stock with no return date. Even if I was willing to wait and move furniture around- the chair was not going to be available. So, on the hunt, I went and discovered this green velvet beauty. The size was right, it was tufted and the price was right (on sale at the time). To tie the green into the room- I mixed up a shade of paint close to the chair’s velvet version and painted the picture frame mats above the bed. I will add a lumbar pillow in the same shade of green for the desk chair when I find a fabric or ready-made bit of comfort.
The Art Work –
The gallery wall was a favorite – I bought most of the prints from Etsy, some from an antique store, and one from Amazon. The frames were from Hobby Lobby on the 1/2 price sale.
The Lighting –
I have been sharing throughout the ORC about these sconces. I was so very honored and excited to partner with Crystorama and feature the Morgan sconce. These sconces arrived well packed with easy clear instructions. We chose to do the plug-in version, which gives us more flexibility when the room will one day go from a full to a queen bed.
I put together a little video of the Morgan light here:
The other light in the room is a little desk lamp that I purchased here. I wanted to make sure he had a “can’t misplace it” spot to charge his phone or other devices and this lamp has a built-in USB port.
I know I say this every time but – this has to be my favorite room to date! It was fun to finally deck out my last child’s room…just a couple of years and he will be in college! Now, that’s hard to believe.
See the whole week by week process:
