Here's a vibrant coral room that incorporates turquoise and lime green. You can keep this makeover budget friendly with paint for the walls, thrift store finds for accent pieces and inexpensive throw pillows.

Hi---Keep walls light and add fun colorful LARGE art, pillows, and a rug. These items can be easily switched out. Hope this is helpful. http://www.art.com/products/p14760219578-sa-i6786504/diela-maharanie-char.htm?sorig=cat&sorigid=0&dimvals=5539265&ui=7d41ff34c66c44f483bad6d96405e629[houzz=

Let's see, you could.....paint an area of her room with a bright colored chalkboard paint and let her and her friends create their own art (about $15.00)......buy a stretched canvas and some poster paints and let her have fun with it (about $20.00)....buy a white twin sized sheet and teach her how to tie-dye and make her own curtains (about $10.00)....and get this great coral area rug, it's one of my favorites on Houzz:

I say paint the walls her favorite coral and work from there with throw pillows on the bed and a small rug. I think all teenage girls go through this. As a teen, my daughter painted her walls red and used zebra accents. Heaven help us, I hated it and repainted it the week after she got married and moved out. My niece was into lime green walls with bright yellow accents. I think the wall color makes them the happiest and then she can pick up a few accessories here and there.

I know of teenage girls that want to paint their whole room black. Bright colors would be a blessing after that!

Bobbi, I agree! I thought red with the zebra stripe rug and cushions was awful, but black would be far worse!
