We are almost done with Olive’s for now, so while I was trying to stick to a one room at at time, I’m obviously trying to jump into Ella’s and ignore that. We have a few key elements figured out and are still working on others, but one thing I know I want for in there is some really cool artwork. Working with what we have, we ended up with a few tigers oddly enough – apparently I have a thing. But I don’t want just hand-me-down art for her, I want her space to feel cool, tweeny and chic so I have been scouring Minted and here is a list of my favorite art for a tween bedroom from Minted.
We picked out this moody bedspread from Emily & Merrit at Pottery Barn Teen and it has really taken the lead in the room. Matched with our vintage Jenny Lind bed in blush and the Alstead Rug from Boutique Rugs, it’s been hard to nail down the best artwork for the space. Tweens want something fun and funky, and finding just that that will mix well with this has been a little harder than I had imagined.
Originally we were going to add my tiger painting from my sister above her bed and I think Ella might still like that, but I’m wondering if in the words of Winnie “We can do better… ”
So here are a few that I’ve found that I’m thinking about…
This print is so true to tweens — who doesn’t like to dilly dally?! Right?! It would be perfection over her desk! While the colors don’t match completely with the light blushes, they might just coordinate and I think they’d actually compliment my sisters tiger drawing quite nicely.
I love this print because it’s understated and simple, yet eye catching. Who doesn’t love a good LA palm tree? I love the color editing done here too to make them feel a bit muted, but still cool. It might just be the perfect print to hang above the bed and catch your eye right when you open the door.
One of the things we are missing from our old house already is seeing the hot air balloons all over the place what felt like all the time. So, this might be a front runner as well. I like the idea of having these photos that are edited in a unique way to bring in a little more funk to the room.
With a rich love for the carnival and fairs in our family, this might be a fun one to try! I love the coloring as well as the ride – although I don’t ride this one! But I think she’d love it and it’s perfect art for a tween bedroom
And lastly, one of my absolute favorites. The coloring is vintage and magical. The ornateness of the ride is balanced out by the editing technique. But there’s just so much to look at! I kind of love it!
But I also have been playing around with a few of my own ideas… Like this one…
