One happy customer!


My gorgeous girl turns 13 in 6 days and wanted a bedroom to match. We haven't had to do too much (she lies!) but just bring it up to date for a teenager. 


A trip to Ikea was a must as her room is up in the attic and flat pack was essential to get everything up on to the 3rd floor. We ended up buying these BILLY shelves, which at £35.00 each, make a fab feature wall for her desk area. This is becoming the favourite corner to chill!


It's perfect for all those stationery must haves....


How many pens and pencils? Takes after her mother for sure.


A further BILLY bookcase is placed side on, to her bed and houses all her most precious and well loved books. Being a library assistant at school, all her books are in alphabetical order!! Bless.


She has a cosy corner for her bed and at the end of it.....


....is her sewing table and a new table for all the cutting out



We then move around to her beauty and music area.


And at last a home for the bunting she made.


The main thing Sophie wanted was a new wardrobe. We went for a PAX set up, as you can pick and choose every aspect from the frame size to the doors......


 ......to the rails and internal drawers and shelves. 
We stuck on some of their wall stickers to just finish it all off.


So there you have it - one very happy girl enjoying her new space. All ready and waiting for the birthday sleep over on Friday! (HELP!)


I now keep peeking into Sam's room and thinking how we can best make use of his space - maybe that'll have to wait for his birthday next year. I have to leave a little gap between Ikea building projects or Jeff would leave home!!

What a fantastic room for a teenage girl! I love the way you've separated off the two areas with the shelves. Very clever!
