Carving out a space for his musical interests was the focus of this teen bedroom design. It has a modern look while keeping the colour palette neutral and charming for a growing teenager and budding musician. Here’s a closer look at this navy and cognac colour palette bedroom makeover.
🇨🇦 My fellow Canadians: Want to retake my course for FREE!? This weekend my Virtual Specify Colour with Confidence workshop is happening in my studio in Chilliwack. I’m looking for a local TCE (certified True Colour Expert) who would like to volunteer THIS WEEKEND, as well as in our May and June courses (also in Chilliwack).
When we travelled all around the country leading this course in person, we always had two former TCEs who volunteered at the back of the room. Email us here if you are available.
Last week you saw Bella’s magical bedroom, and this is her brother Bobby.
Bobby is 13 years old and has been a competitive swimmer since he was 10! He swims six days a week with a great team of kids and coach. His dedication to the sport is impressive.
Bobby is a kind-hearted young man who has loved being in the water since he has a baby. He has always been a little fish! He grew up swimming the summers away in his home pool, the local lake and the rivers, so trying swim club was a natural fit.
Since age 9, Bobby has been training and swimming competitively. Now, at age 13, he competes in regional and divisional swim meets and is working hard towards qualifying for BC Summer Provincials coming soon.
Bobby also has enjoyed playing guitar since a young age. And, now in middle school, he started bass in the school band and school rock band!
Music-themed teen bedroom makeover
Incorporating your teen’s hobbies in their bedroom design is always a great starting point. We wanted to give this teenager space for his musical interests while also updating his bedroom aesthetic with neutral and timeless colours. The combination of navy and cognac colours makes an ideal backdrop for a masculine bedroom design but still maintains some boyish charm.
Here’s the before:
We arranged Bobby’s guitars as art on the wall so it’s the first thing you see when you walk into the room. Storing them this way keeps them at arm’s reach when he wants to practice, but also lends a modern rock star vibe to the bedroom.
The geometric jute rug helps pull this colour palette together nicely.
The roman shades are custom made and help streamline this little music nook.
Hanging his swimming awards on a framed cork board turns his ribbons into art.
I love how this room came together. It’s updated, but not too grown up.

Bedroom designs are such a fun way to help your teenager express themselves. It’s an excellent way to showcase their hobbies and interests in a unique way. And, it’s a great way to get them involved in the design process early on. Next, I’m helping my nephew with a new room design soon, so stay tuned for even more teen bedroom inspiration.
