Teenage girls are unpredictable, wonderful beings, switching between peaceful creatures one day, to contrary divas the next. The kiss of death for any parental bedroom designer? Assuming she’s still your princess or a princess at all, and pink unicorns and butterflies decorate her daydreams; she’s still little and wide-eye, right? You need to shield her from the world – only, she’s probably more aware of certain facets than you are. Instead of directing her to this option or that, use this time to find out more about your daughter, as she is now and who she wants to become. A bedroom is an oasis, a space reflecting our personalities and inner thoughts, our interests and quirks; a room where you can be you, as chaotic or organised as that may be.
Colour Her World
What is her favourite shade on the colour chart? Purple, green, blue, pink, red, orange…Feature walls have long become a design element for teenage bedrooms (and adult ones as well), drawing our eyes and furthering an ambience created by carefully chosen accessories and flourishes. If she has two colours she can’t decide on – after all, who has just one favourite? – feel free to clash and blend shades, experimenting with swatches and complementing hues. Unless she really loves pink, try to avoid this garish colour; as much as she loves it now, she might grow out of it in her later teens, embarrassed by its rosiness. After the paint is dry and even, take her shopping for a few colour matched embellishments – throw rugs, pillows, curtains, candles etc all add a hint of personality without overwhelming the space.
Don’t Be Afraid to Clash
Do you wince at the thought of mixing florals with neons, pastels with baroque swirls and red with yellow? It may be time to let go of your addiction to uniformity. If your daughter is a bit eclectic, very adventurous and delights in the mismatched world of unique furniture and decorations, don’t be afraid to break the rules. Be bold, be creative; mix, match and layer bright, subdued and in your face colours, tones, linen and accessories. It might sound jumbled and overwhelming, and it can be, if you don’t do it right – strategic chaos requires placement, patience and a keen eye for the big picture, as the final design works piece by piece, without crowding the overall concept.
Shoebox Design – Small Rooms, Big Ideas
Working with a small room can be a nightmare, particularly as your daughter’s life flows from play dates to romantic dates, from sleep overs to rom com parties and a shred of study to punctuate the social atmosphere that she now resides in, online and off. Places like Bunkers can offer some sophisticated space saving choices, from the classic to the modern; the idea of bunks is not new or particularly innovative in itself, though new hutch, storage and study designs are a god send in a tiny apartment or bedroom.
Ultimately, your daughter will want a space that resonates with her, somewhere she feels comfortable, a place to lie back and chill. Bedroom design doesn’t rate in the parenting magazine or self-help books, as it’s probably something you will do together once or twice, but make no mistake, this process can draw you closer together as similarities come out. You may have lost your little girl, but a wonderful young woman has taken her place.

I like to watch the shows wherein Selena Gomez was still a kid as she was so cute. With her voice, she’s a girl that got the talent. She’s also smart. Most of all, she’s good person whom most of the kids and teenagers can look upon. She can be a good role model to young ones. I hope she would stay that way and I hope she wouldn’t change her image. If she will change her image, I hope it would be for the better.
The main advantage of using a prepaid cellular phone is the “savings”. I know this because I myself am a prepaid cellular phone user since middle of this year. Yes, I missed the high tech world of posting just anything on my favorite social media websites and the thing of browsing online while I am out of the house but those things I can live without. The thing that I cannot live without is my savings. And so I prefer to have prepaid cellular phone service and I can use $20 triple minutes for more than 1-3 months. What a blessing indeed!
You always want to make a good impression when you have guests over for dinner at your house or corporate clients over for a business lunch. The right set of silverware and glassware can help you make that impression in a big way.
In addition to making a good impression, you can also let your creative side shine through. With a variety of colors and styles and materials to choose from, you can come up with a different look for each day or each meal that you serve to your family or friends.
For those in college, having silverware in their dorm room is considered a luxury. However, if you prefer to eat a homemade meal or hold a formal dinner in your room, there are silverware and glassware options that fit your budget. If your budget doesn’t allow you to buy your favorite items just yet, you can visit the wishlist tab. When you click here, you will be able to select items that you want or want others to buy for you in the future.
The kitchen is not the only place where you want to show off your good taste. The bathroom is another room in the house where you want to be as comfortable as possible. When you use a room as many times in a day as you use your bathroom, you need to make sure that your supplies are easily accessible and are pleasing to the eye first thing in the morning.
I was a bit down for the past three to four days for the reason that the steps I experimented did not work for me. Yesterday, was my last day of experiment and I tore all of the things that I wrote on the paper. I just put it aside and I do not want to read it again. I want to do a new experiment without setting dates on it. I just want to write just anything but without specification. I do believe that if there’s a way for me to have it, I can have it at the right time and at the right place. With that, I believe I already received it and I am so grateful for it every day.
A confession: I use a PC at work, but I’m a Mac fan boy. I can’t explain how this happened. Logically, I understand that I am being played. Logically, I understand how I’m being played. Yet, I’m powerless to resist the urge to gobble up every ostensibly unnecessary product they unleash on the market. iPhone. Check. iPad. Check. AppleTV. Check. iMac. Check. The fact that I’ve wasted an hour of time reading about a fucking white iPhone. Truly shameful. But there it is. Continue reading
Every day, whole day and whole night, the mouth of the girl is just “barney, elmo, and blue’s clues”. Without her watching these shows would be like a war in the house. She will always whine over it. When she will do it, I will ask her not to whine or cry but to ask politely with the word please and thank u. It’s just so funny when she will say please and thank you because at the end she will say “you’re welcome”. Hehehe!
