From an eye-catching collection of paintings to an 18th-century Italian mirror, thoughtful accessories steal the show in this Greenwich Village bedroom. The bed, featuring antique French linens, is upholstered in a neutral striped fabric by Robert Kime. The side table is 18th-century English, the lantern is 19th-century Indian, and the walls are in Farrow & Ball’s Off-White.

In this stylish, rustic bedroom, Minnesota based design firm Martha O’Hara Interiors took the masculine edge off a reclaimed wood ceiling and stone fireplace with contrasting fabrics. Details including the plush neutral bedding and the country plaid curtains add softness and a sense of balance to the room. There is no need for a traditional end table when you have tree stump you can paint half white. The small wing chair on the right may not seem like a typical choice for a rustic bedroom, and that's the point. It lends sophistication while providing a practical purpose.

However, most parents don't have the funds to lavishly decorate their child's bedroom, nor should you spend your hard-earned cash on furniture, bedding and decor that has inflated mark-ups and little long-lasting value. Truth is, you can create a fabulous room for your teen without going broke in the process - or even without spending much money at all.


Instead of sticking with plain white walls, considering another neutral that adds a subtle yet bold twist. "Responding to an unusual Y-shaped floor plan required a strategy to pull light from all directions to create a range of shifting light experiences: Moody and subtle to the south; bright and open to the east," explain the designers behind Arent & Pyke. For a moodier bedroom that isn't full-on dark, try a steel blue gray like this one. And then lighten things up with colorful linens and keep things streamlined with bright a white ceiling and modern bedside sconce.
