14 Chic Tween Girl Bedroom Ideas

She's growing up fast, with ever-changing ideas, moods, and tastes. Give her a space she can continue to grow and dream in for years. The most important thing to remember as your girl's independence develops? Ask for her input when setting up and decorating her space. She'll have great ideas for colors, wall art, decor, and spaces for hanging out with her BFFs. Scroll through the gallery for the perfect tween girl bedroom inspiration!

1. A Pop of Her Personality

Who says you can't wallpaper the top half, anyway? Also, who says everything has to be matchy-matchy? Play off your girl's personality, and anything can happen with the color wheel. Mix and match patterns by pairing florals with checks — ditto on the mixing of textures. Smooth quilts with fuzzy throws create an inviting place to relax. The upholstered headboard pops out against the hardwood floors and wooden dressers.

Keep furniture simple

Choose streamlined, neutral nightstands and dressers. This allows the wall color and bedding choices to change when her mood does.

Arrange "adorbs" art

Top off the space with her own personal art, or pieces she finds simply "adorbs."

Happy Vibes

Modern and trendy without the slightest hint of "toddler." This space is welcoming and friendly.

Growing up fast, but not quite there

Display prized childhood possessions as art or decor pieces. (Chances are, she still loves that bear...)

A place for everything

Underbed storage drawers hold off-season clothing or her most secret possessions.

Happy splashes of color

Bold splashes of color pop against the neutral wall. Allow her to create her own artwork mirroring a bedspread pattern to frame and hang.

Squeal-worthy collection

What pieces speak to her inner girl? These bears are playful, yet not baby-ish. Choose a prominent spot for display.

Soothing palettes

Her bedroom is her sanctuary – a place to unwind. Let the base palette speak to peace of mind with tone-on-tone neutrals.

A Space for Everyone

Bunk beds rock! Whether she needs the space for a friend or if siblings are sharing, bunks are the perfect addition to any tween's room.

Comfy area rugs

A large, comfy area rug warms the room and defines a spot for spreading out with a book, board game, or craft time.

Neutral bases

Choosing white furniture allows for the color wheel to explode in bedding choices and accent pieces.

Mix and match shapes

Soften the vibe up with a play on shapes (and textures). Choosing round decor offsets the crisp lines of the dresser. Flowers add a bit more texture. Bonus points if you exchange artificial foliage for the real deal for special occasions.

The finer points of function

Add in pieces such as cushiony ottomans and small tables. She may not host stuffed-animal tea parties anymore, but she'll certainly find ways to incorporate these pieces into her style.

Understated Princess

With the curved, upholstered headboard, the drop-dead gorgeous ceiling-to-floor canopy, the timeless blending of grays, pinks and black, this room gives your girl the royal treatment — minus those elementary school pop-culture icons.

Indulge her inner queen

Let her indulge her inner queen by choosing her favorite floral bedding. Complete the look with a striped accent rug. Gorgeous! Add fun, colorful task lighting to top things off. Finally? Glitter, of course, is always an option...

Study space

Even a princess needs to study (or dream, or scheme...). Create a beautifully functional study space. Choose a piece with lines that match the overall theme of the room. The upholstered desk chair is a wonderful, inviting touch.
