Back to School Design – Tribal Teen Bedroom + Bath

A personalized, relaxing space is key for teenagers to be able to rest and recharge after a long school day.  And this back to school design Tribal Teen Bedroom & Bath was created for just that. The crisp, clean look incorporates modern pieces and designs to form the perfect back to school look suitable for the entire family.


Our teen bedroom design utilizes a variety of tribal prints and natural décor to create a crisp bedroom feel. The West Elm Turned High Gloss White Table Lamps frame the bed perfectly allowing the Custom Made Teal Pillows bright colours to add a fun atmosphere for this teen’s bedroom. In addition, the natural EQ3 B2C Slipcover Bed in 100% Linen Oatmeal helps balance out natural and white colours with the ocean blue tones.

We focused on incorporating hints of bright colors in this back to school bedroom décor primarily through the Teal Chevron Pillows. Although the natural colours are very prominent in the teen bedroom design, the JF Fabrics on the custom teal pillows enhance the crisp, clean space.


In addition to a comfortable relaxing sleep space, students need a spot where they can focus their minds on their work. The EQ3 Trivia Desk w/ White Top design gives off a modern feel to this simple workspace. The soothing ocean blue tones from the painting also connect well with the various Teal Chevron Pillows on the bed, giving the bedroom a pop of colour.

The workspace not only looks good, but its design has organization in mind. The shelf has plenty of room for useful natural bins and organizers.   It fits the décor perfectly within our natural, white and ocean blue colour theme.


The white, cream and light birch colours used in this bathroom design lightens the whole space.  The simple yet fun tribal design of the West Elm Shower Curtain enhances the bathroom for a unique, personalized feel.

European Inspired Bathroom

This European inspired bathroom has many great features.  The sleek, timeless and clean feel makes this bathroom the perfect escape for this family’s house guests.  Not only does it look beautiful, it also has a very functional layout with thoughtful details that complete the experience.

Vanity Area

The first feature we love in this guest upper bathroom is the Kohler Vox Vessel Square Sink with a floor to ceiling window behind.  The floating vanity by Denca Cabinets in front of the window with walnut cabinets and Caesarstone Frosty Carrina quartz creates a simple, yet modern design.  The white counter against the walnut colour lightens the room while also adding dimension and depth.

Another unique and versatile feature is the pivoting mirror that we chose to add to further enhance the functional layout of this bathroom.  The natural sunlight peaking from behind the mirror gives this bathroom a great sense of space and of course is perfect for getting ready.

One of the main components of this flawless sink is the Riobel CL01 raised single lever vanity faucet.  This modern faucet enhances the sleek look of this space.  In addition, it’s tall vertical design works very well with the long floor to ceiling window.

Shower Area

The curbless shower with Porcelanosa Blanco 12”x36” ceramic wall tile also follows the functional and modern layout for this space.  These specific white shower wall tiles are enhanced by the Julian Tile Veromar Milly Grey Limestone 3” x 3” Hex floor tiles to create the perfect contrast.  The various grey and white tones in the floor tile connect the main tile and the white walls together effortlessly.The shower drain used in this modern shower is not your ordinary drain. We chose to use an Infiniti Drain to adhere to the clean lines throughout the whole design.

Storage Solutions

Continuing with the walnut theme, we have the Floating Walnut Open Shelves.  This modern shelving provides ample storage space for linens while maintaining the modern, European look.

All of the thoughtful detail came together seamlessly to create an ideal European Inspired guest bathroom!

Modern Furniture

The modern vibe of the bedroom is further shown in the furniture chosen for the space.  The bed is a black leather Barcelona-style bed.  This along with the Huppe white oak nightstands and dresser give the room a modern edge with its simplistic, but stunning design.  The lighter coloured furniture allows the black and blonde to have that extra pop of colour within the room.  In addition, this helps balance out the colour scheme by preventing the space to be overwhelmed by solely the black and blonde theme.  To finish off the design of the room, as seen above the dresser, we have amazing street art done by the talented Lindsay Nichols Photography.  This black and white artwork completes the black and blonde theme, with its hint of yellow throughout the piece.

Light Fixtures

This bedroom features two stunning and differing light fixtures.  The first one being the black drum semi-flush light fixture hanging above the bed.  On one hand, this light fixture continues the flow of the black and blonde theme.  On the other hand, the Pablo Solis free standing table lamps add a touch of white.  This adds light features to the space, contrasting with the dark.  In result, balancing out the hues chosen for this room.


The ensuite continues the flow of the modern vibe of the bedroom.  This can be seen through the ensuite’s modern lines, sleek wenge maple flat panel cabinetry and stainless steel pulls.  In addition to the Kohler Vox rectangle semi-flush vanity sinks, all key features cement the modern look of the ensuite.  The raised sinks and the ET2 Larmes linear suspension pendant give a hint of distinctiveness to the space.

Together, both spaces deliver a modern vibe with its black and blonde hues and simple pieces.  Each design element carefully selected successfully providing comfort and style!
