Mural for Teen Hangout

Playroom Makeover

When Colette turned 11, her mom realized the playroom full of toys and picture books no longer fit her daughter’s needs. It was time for an upgrade from little kid to teen.

The family loves to read, so Colette’s mom sought to surround her daughter with some favorite quotes. Wall quotes are a fun, easy way to decorate a room, but she wanted to take the design a step further and add a teen-friendly theme. Together we came up with the idea of putting the quotes into texting bubbles. We then added an iPad with a magnetic chalkboard screen and a purple headphone cord twisting around the room to tie all the elements together.

Colette knew her playroom was undergoing a makeover, but the new mural was a birthday surprise. She was thrilled when she finally got to see the finished room, and we were thrilled to get such a big smile.
