Hipster Apartment Decor

What is hipster style? It is a melting pot of ideas, cultural differences, and authentic details. It is a style that is embraced by younger middle class and late teens, as a form of expression, in personal style, fashion, and of course in their apartment decor. The use of unique fixtures, wall decals, and the always great flea-market finds can create a unique and expressive hipster space.

Unique Bedrooms for Teen Girls

I’ve been on a search for unique bedroom design ideas for teen girls. Once a young lady reaches a certain age, the old pink fluffy stuff hits the donation bags. Gone forever in sight, but hopefully not in mind and heart, are the little girl things that kept us safe and comfortable. A teen needs to express herself, and indulge in some luxury in her own created space. A long the way I’ve found some great little touches, unique color choices, and subtle yet expressive ways to upgrade the young girl room into a young adult haven.

I love the wall paper design above, and the purple, chartreuse, and blue color combination. The standing full length mirror (what girl doesn’t need one?) is a nice touch.

The transition from pre-teen to teen decor can be accomplished with a few simple design changes. A fresh new carpet, new bedding to match, and new window treatments will re-invent this teen’s space. Love the Japanese theme, and again the standing full-length mirror.

Still stay soft and girl-like, but get rid of the stuffed-animals. Love the soft yet colorful bedroom featured here.

Betsy Johnson would be proud! For a girl with some zest and daring this bright zebra print room is loaded with style and charisma. Black and white and pink is always fun.

For the young woman who love a fresh and clean style, with a bit of a vintage touch. I love the fluffy shag carpets on top of carpets and the creative chandelier makes a nice statement. Creating a unique teen bedroom can be a fun decor challenge.

Kids’ Room Design – Girls!

Making a girl’s room into a fun, playful environment that she’ll love can be a perplexing task. Believe me, I’ve been through it with two of my own. And I wish I went with some of these design options, like this room with fairy-tale quality to it.  The massive crib of course can be easy changed to a day bed, of twin bed. Love the color choices in this room, subtle yet bright.

So letting your kids go this far may be difficult but consider how easy it is to be creative using wall stickers.  Your child’s favorite cartoon characters can be the crazy and fun way to allow her to express herself.  These stickers are affordable and easy to place and remover.

Don’t forger color is a child’s room. This stylish kid’s room features an unusual palette of green and sherbet orange…quite unique.

The pink girl’s room is a thing of the past, well, maybe not completely, but this subtle color palette of pink, pale green, and white give this space a fresh and stylish feel, so beyond the pink comforter and curtains.

But if you must think pink, this room creation in light red painted walls and furniture is a perfect tween expression.  Love the modern feel and the built in look of the desk and drawers which make this small space pretty as well as functional.

Apartment Inspiration

Tamara Mellon, co-founder and President of the Jimmy Choo Company, famous for its top-of-the-line chic shoes, made a move to New York City last year and her apartment is sheer inspiration…Why not take some ideas and decorate your Allentown apartment with a similar color scheme. The browns and peaces with chartreuse chairs are delicious.

and a glamorous apartment it is, to go with a glamorous woman.  Tamara had her apartment designed by Martyn Lawrence-Bullard and describes it as: “my own signature look, something that is both modern and old and glamorous, a bit of 70s but a bit minimal.” Enhance your Allentown apartment with some ques from this glam room:

Love the 70s feel here…and all the white shagginess of it all….Give your Allentown apartment a comfy feel with soft throws and pillows too numerous to count tossed on a L-shaped couch.

You can add a spark to any room, as Tamara does here with a light-up neon sign expressing “love” and splash some color in your Allentown apartment with a big red chandelier.  We love chandeliers!

And really, what could a girl want more than a closet full of Jimmy Choos? I dare you to answer that one.  And what a closet?! I wish I could fit this one, shoes and all, in my Allentown apartment, of course I’d have to get like six jobs to afford all these shoes….it would be worth it, if I had time to wear them.
