Happy Holidays my friends!! Today is officially Boxing Day, December 26th and we are enjoying everything that revolves around this time of the year. Last summer, we planned a project in our home called the TEEN LOUNGE in partnership with American Leather, BDI, Truett Carpets and Rugs, Phillip Jeffries and more. The best part about this project, is that this space is perfect for snuggling with the family, noshing on popcorn and watching movies (and a little Netflix too). We started planning the space in April and completed the renovation and installation in July. Our teens love to hang out in here with their friends and it is perfect for sleepovers too.
The reason I am sharing this with you now, is that I am already planning more renovation work for the coming summer months so that we can enjoy them in Fall of 2020!! It is never too early to get started and I thought it would be fun to rewind and take a look back at this family functional space we designed in our home from 2019. Start planning your projects for 2020 and you can look back on how much you accomplished this year too!!
Here is a little look back at what we did::
This space was a collection point for old furniture and a daybed for sleepovers, but all of them had seen better days. It was honestly embarrassing for me to have a space like this in our home, but with it being upstairs, I didn’t go in there nearly as often as I should.
Now we have bold texture on the walls with grasscloth and wood veneered wallpapers from Phillip Jeffries, along with a comfy new sectional. I also took the opportunity to layer on some of my favorite art prints and had the teens choose their fav prints and framed them all to create a space that feels hip and cozy for all members of our family.
We also added a great entertainment console by BDI Furniture below our television. The cord control allows all the wires to be hidden in a column behind the TV and the console in on wheels so it can easily move in and out from the wall. Our teens especially love this when they are hooking up their video games to the TV so they can reach behind the furniture without having to move a heavy piece by themselves.
This room has truly been a favorite place for everyone and we have planned several movie nights here when we have family and friends in town. Scott and I strongly believe in using every room in our home and this was a major goal when planning our renovations for the stage of life we are in with teens.
I hope this inspires you to use all the rooms in your home and work to create spaces that inspire and restore you!!
NOTE:: This is a sponsored post, which means that I worked in partnership with the brands listed to design this space. They donated items in return for allowing me to design and install it as I saw fit for my lifestyle. I think this is a great way to share with you, my readers, the wonderful products that are available to our clients with the brands we use. It also allows me to share with you authentically how I use these products in my own home. I only write about and share products that I would be willing to use and keep in my own home.
