With some rearranging, a mixture of old and new and a little DIY, the teen lounge is now both a fun and functional hangout.

It’s a great place to kick off your shoes, sit back and relax.

It’s my daughter’s landing-place after school each day.  Once she walks through that door, she’s in teenage heaven; her very own Narnia where she gets to escape the drama of Junior High School.

Imagine having a room where you’re surrounded by childhood keepsakes, memorabilia and inspiration.

I remember the teen lounge in my childhood home.  It was a room addition that my Dad built with his own two hands.  I recall feeling like it was my home away from home, my own private world.  Privacy is everything to a teenager.

I think in their world privacy equals freedom.  Freedom to turn up the music and sing your heart out.

Freedom to daydream.

Freedom to try new things

Thanks to Lamps Plus, this room will be all of those things to my daughter.

It’s a teenage dream.


You can find the raganoodle white shag area rug and the white flower pendant light at Lamps Plus.  All other furniture and accessories were prior purchases.

Wall decor is a mixture of prior purchases and DIY.

See you in class,

The following two tabs change content below.
After 17 years in an elementary classroom, Mrs. Hines retired from teaching to pursue her passions: decorating, writing and homemaking. While her formal education is in teaching, she discovered her talent for design at a young age and is a self-taught decorator. Mrs. Hines' DIY spirit has earned her appearances on the show Deals which airs on the Live Well Network. She continues to teach and inspire on her popular Lifestyle blog, Mrs. Hines' Class. Blogging allows Mrs. Hines to hone her natural skills as a writer and has led to the launch of The Write Touch, an online editorial service. Homemaking is Mrs. Hines' first love. So, when she isn't decorating or writing, you can find her at home watching television with Mr. Hines or trying to keep up with her teenaged daughter.
