Question by ZoeG: Interior Designing Teen Bedroom?
Hey all! My (almost) 15 year-old daughter is moving down to our (what is now) office. We have already painted her room a lilac/lavender color. She found a beautiful metal queen-sized bed frame and she doesn’t know what else she wants. She can’t decide between black or white furniture. The bed is a four-poster black bed http://www.ifurn.com/Metal-Beds_ContourMB.html#ProdDetails and she found a room she really likes http://www.house-decorating-ideas.com/TeenGirlsPurpleBedroom.html but it doesn’t give the curtain names or anything. We have a 9 drawer double-dresser that is a natural wood and she wanted to paint it but is not sure now what to paint it. She was going to paint it white but now can’t decide between black or white. The trim of the room is white. She wants the color scheme to now be purple, black and white. Would that work? Do you have any ideas for her room? She doesn’t like contemporary but she doesn’t want her room to look childish. She wants it “pretty” and sophisticated.
Oh I almost forgot. She wants black and white photography in her room. Nothing with big flowers and no stripes or polkadots (Some exceptions) She has a very specific idea about her room and she just needs a little help (Remember a black metal bed) So what color furniture?
Correction nothing with big/small tropical flowers! =)
Her room is 11′-6” x 14′-9”
There is only one wall with nothing on it (no windows, closet) Other walls not a lot of clear space to work with. Windows close together on two walls and then the closet. Any ideas for the closet?
Thanks for your feedback everyone!

The room from the link looks a little victorian, and maybe too sophisticated, but if thats what she likes then it is very pretty. I would suggest going with white if you want it more elegant. Black is usually a more modern color. Also, black and white photographs and paintings would look great in the room too!
