Teen Bedroom Makeover

We all love a good before and after post! Here are a few fun pictures from a recent makeover. This is a teen’s girls bedroom. Our clients recently moved from Florida which is always hard on teenage children so they wanted to create a special room for her!

Out of Space? Maybe not…

Small spaces can be cozy but frustrating if you feel like you don’t have enough room for your things.
