Interiors :: Pottery Barn Teen


I spent a solid 10 years of my life living and breathing Pottery Barn Teen.  Throughout middle school, high school, and college my bedroom was decorated in various shade of pastel, filled with mix and match lighting, patchwork quilts, and white wooden furniture - all from my beloved Pottery Barn Teen.  Now that I'm in my mid-20's I think my style is a little more grown-up, but recently I have found myself back on the PB Teen band wagon. 

I've been swooning over this canopy bed for months, and at under $1,000 it's a steal compared to many of it's counterparts.  This desk with it's golden legs would look absolutely perfect in my bedroom.  Emily + Meritt's bedding collection is seriously adorable...I especially love this scalloped sham and this striped bed skirt {"The Night Circus" anyone?}  And don't even get me started on the designers' gold bookcase which could easily pass for something 5x it's price.  So what do you think?  Are you loving Pottery Barn Teen's feminine pieces?  Or are they a bit too twee for you?

  2. I'm totally with ya, girl. I haven't officially been a teen in quite a long time, but I still shamelessly ogle everything at this store :-) That desk is gorgeous!

  3. I'm so glad you posted this! My daughter, who is 12, recently requested a re-do of her room and we've been trying to come up with something we can agree on. I absolutely love this swivel chair (how fun is studying in this?) and that arched mirror. Perfect picks Molly :)

  5. While I'm way past my "teen" days, I'm still such a big fan of PB Teen! Their furniture is gorgeous and so fun! I still own some of it from when I was in high school!!

  6. What a great post Molly! I haven't thought of looking at PB Teen lately because I always thought it was still all just bright colors. But so fun to see that they have some more elegant and neutral tone pieces.

  8. Can Pottery Barn seriously do any wrong? I think whats great is that a lot of the pieces can translate to a grown up room.

  9. Pottery Barn is amazing. I love your picks! The canopy bed is my favorite piece....and has probably been on my wish list since I was a teen!

  10. Those are some pretty elegant "teen" pieces. Let's just say I haven't been a teen since the 70s but I would love any of that bed ( and anything else) in my room
