Tween bedroom redesign, sneak peek

Remember when I posted about this tween room like three months ago? Well she is all done, shot (by David Tsay), video’d, and ready to go … tomorrow. But to remind you of what is about to happen:

tween girl bedroom

Come back tomorrow and see the afters of one of my favorite rooms EVER. I partnered up with Land of Nod to create this tween bedroom that makes me want to go back in time, be a 9-year-old, and live the life that all 9-year-old girls should live — surrounded by aqua and pink and gold, but somehow in a not overly “princess” kinda way.

Also, maybe due to her influence I might now listen to One Direction a little too much …


  1. Can’t wait to see this one! Looks like the perfect space.

  2. Excited to see the final pictures! Love the idea of using a map in a kids room.

    This room will be oh so adorable! Because your work is amazing, would you ever give advice on pricing for vintage furniture? I’m about to pull the trigger on some chairs, but would like to know if they’re priced too high.


    • Emily

      Hmm. what kind of chairs and how much are they? Do you have to reupholster them?

      • Dana O.


        They’re 500 for a pair and are the same design of your OKL’s deeeeeeep navy blue 80’s loungers. Yes, I’d need to reupholster them (hello dark emerald velvet) but I’m thinking they’ll be my heirloom pieces. Most importantly I’ll be copying you, but with a different color and therefore fooling the world into thinking I have my own style.

    Looks sooo fun! When I was a teen, I decided on a Sun, Moon, Stars theme (it was very “in” in the 90’s) so I painted one whole wall a dark royal purple and sponge painted sun, moon and stars on it, lol. This looks WAY cooler. Also, I’m about to purchase that grey ikat print Land of Nod bench for my baby-to-be’s nursery. How is it in person? I got a swatch in the mail and liked the fabric.

    But tomorrow can really not come soon enough…I have an 8 year old daughter and I’m working on her room and its turquoise (with hot pink, and sum blue and yellow)….and thanks to you, I may be able to pull off something good for my girl.
