Teen girls are picky about what they like and what they don't like, which includes how they decorate their bedroom. Inside the bedroom of a teenage girl, you're likely to find photographs of her with her friends, pictures of actors and musicians cut from magazines and lots of clothes and accessories. Finding a way to tie all of her interests together isn't always easy, but it's far from impossible. Paint the walls of her room in a cute or unexpected way, and then work on tying the rest of the room together.

Use Stencils

Use large or small stencils to create a pattern or border on the wall. For example, use stencils of geometric shapes, including circles and squares. Trace the stencils onto the top of the wall, alternating between the shapes. Then paint inside the shapes, using a colour that compliments the wall colour. Place larger stencils along one wall to create a piece of art for her room. Paint the walls white or a lighter shade, and use darker, brighter or even primary colours to fill in your outlines. If she has a particular interest, like flowers, then use stencils of different types of flowers on the walls.

Blackboard Walls

Paint one wall in your teenage girl's room with blackboard or chalkboard paint. When dry, this creates a surface exactly like a blackboard. Designers occasionally use the paint to create a small blackboard, but making an entire wall may be something your daughter appreciates. Add pieces of chalk in different colours to let her and her friends draw pictures and leave notes for each other. Alternatively, paint one wall in magnetic paint first, and then cover with the blackboard paint, which creates a magnetised surface. Then she can hang her favourite pictures and posters on the wall, using decorative magnets.

Vintage Ideas

Create an 80s inspired room by using the splatter technique of painting. Paint the walls white first, which gives you a plain background. Then cover the floors, and use different colours of paints, including black, red, blue, purple or colours that work with the theme of the room. Dip brushes directly in the paint, and then flick the excess at the walls. For girls with older tastes, create a 50s inspired room with a checkerboard theme. Mark equal-sized squares on the walls, and alternate between black and white squares. Make one checkerboard wall, or use the pattern on all walls.
