Girls' Room: Before and After

What do you think of the Duggar girls' new room? It had been bright yellow since the family built their house more than eight years ago. After Jill and Jessa moved out, the seven gals still living at home decided it was time for a change. Michelle's childhood friend Cindy came over and helped them choose new paint colors and decorations. The walls are now burnt orange, dark gray, and light gray.

*Tune in to TLC tonight at 8pm ET/7pm CT for a three-hour recap of the Duggar births that have been televised over the past decade.

  1. They did a beautiful job on the room, however, it reminds me of a hotel room now.

  10. I would like to see all the girls have their own bed. It's constantly confusing.

    ReplyDelete
  11. The former room looked like a little girls' room, and the new room looks like a young adult room. Now I see the argument for breaking up the big girls and the little girls. This is not a room for little girls.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Wow, that's really pretty. Talk about a "grown up" room.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Beautiful! I've always wanted my room to be those kinds of colors!!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. The theme of dark on white makes me think of the word of God. I think I am getting it.

  15. The room looks amazing, but it's going to take me a little while to get used to it!!!

  17. I believe the gray is much more soothing for a bedroom.

  18. Love the new colors and style!

  23. Love it, more grown up looking, a time for a change, good job!

  24. I think they did a wonderful job! Looks much more mature. I wonder though, is there a section for the little girls where it's more little girlie looking for them?

    ReplyDelete
  25. It's lovely! It looks much less busy and cluttered than before. Good job!

    ReplyDelete
  26. The room is beautiful and so are all the girls. Seemed like they really had fun with the decorating and some good quality time:)

  40. I love the new room; it's so fresh and pretty. Do all the girls share one room?

    ReplyDelete
  41. I think its too old looking for the little girls. :( I know you need a change but something more inbetween their ages would have been better. This could be a master bedroom the way it looks there is no sign of little girls. Thats just my opinion lol its your house. Its lovely anyways.

    ReplyDelete
  42. They both look nice

    ReplyDelete
  43. It's such a beautiful room! They are lucky girls :) It fits them well.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Love it!! Hope the younger girls like the more "grown up" look!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Love the light fixtures, pictures and bedding not to fond of the paint color. Would have lived something a little brighter.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I love the new look! The room looks mature and modern, but still comfortable. The wedding photos are a great touch! These girls have great decorating taste. :)

  47. very "grown up" love it

  50. Much as I love the murals that were painted on the walls, the new room looks as if it has been brought into the 21st century. Those girls are growing up!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I personally liked the "sunshine room" better :) i was sad to see it go. The new room seems too dreary and grownup.

    1. I think it is soothing! The colours are not so loud like the yellow was, but then again we all have different tastes!

  52. Cute room- very modern and chic!

    ReplyDelete
  53. It is very pretty however I'm not being negative-just offering my opinion. The green bedspreads have to go and change the names on the beds. So glad for the older girls that it looks like a bedroom and not a playroom but how many beds are really in there? Are they doubling up?

    ReplyDelete
  54. Are you going to post a recap?

    ReplyDelete
  55. I especially love the large white frames over the bed, that have a mint or aqua inset...do you have any idea where they got them? I am in the process of redecorating my home, and these would be just perfect! Thank you so much...your blog is always such a blessing! In Him, Theresa

    ReplyDelete
  56. I LOVE IT! Nicely updated! Good taste by all involved! I was hoping you would post the pictures as it goes by so fast during the show!

    ReplyDelete
  57. love it now it looks more like their style and love the more modern chic look

    ReplyDelete
  58. I think it's lovely. Good job!

  59. I really like the room make over, but I did feel sorry for Jenny having to give up her horse she really wanted to keep it bless her heart.

    ReplyDelete
  60. they're growing up

    ReplyDelete
  61. Oh my goodness their room looks even bigger now. You boys will make wonderful husbands.. your sister's are lucky to have you...
    God Bless xx

    ReplyDelete
  62. It's beautiful...for older girls. I have to agree with Jim Bob, the horse should have stayed for the little girls. The room should be split up according to age groups.

    ReplyDelete
  63. so so sad for Jenny. I wanted to reach through the screen and give her a hug.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Love it! It is kind of a mix between Jessa and Jill's wedding colors.

    ReplyDelete
  65. WHAT A GORGEOUS ROOM....THEIR ROOM WAS SOOOO LOVELY BEFORE WHEN THE GIRLS WERE YOUNGER....THIS ROOM IS SOPHISTICATED AND SOOO GROWN UP....I WISH THE DUGGARS WOULD COME AND DO SOME MAKE OVERS AT MY HOUSE....GOD BLESS YOU ALL....HAYYY WHEN ARE YOU REDOING THE BOYS' ROOMS? LOVE YOU ALL!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  66. This isn't a criticism -why can't Jenny choose a beautiful horse picture for over her bed. horses mean a lot to her. Plus, the wedding pictures are nice but it seems like a shrine to the girls who moved out. Too bad they can't have an individual portrait I,e. Jinger with her camera, Jana at the piano. Their uniqueness would personalize their own space. Just a thought

    1. I guess they did not want those kinds of pictures or else they would have done that. Their room their choice

  67. Very nice you did an amazing job!! Did like the tree that was painted on the wall but it is nice to change things around from time to time.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Again with the bed inquiries! Anyway, remodel looks nice. Not really a fan of burnt orange though. To each his own though, I say.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I love the new room ! I think it looks better now ! And more stylish !!

    ReplyDelete
  70. There is one thing I really do not understand. Why do people put pictures of themselves on the wall? Don't you really see enough of yourself looking in the mirror everyday? Maybe I am just strange, but seriously, I don't even look in the mirror everyday. When I do it usually for a few minutes, sometimes a few more more minutes tops if there is an issue or something. I would hate to look at myself on the wall everyday. I don't see the point to it. Maybe I am just missing something here. (no I am not ugly and/or overweight or anything like that) Just seems a little conceited. I prefer to look at images of my Lord or beautiful images of God's creation and family/friends I rarely ever see to remind me of them when I see it.

  71. Note the wedding dress colours in the room (a nice idea).

    ReplyDelete
  72. I love the room and i love your guy's show it encourages me in every way to get even more closer woth the Lord

  73. When will you post Israel's picture on the board?

    ReplyDelete
  74. I think they did a great job though i liked the wall paintings.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I feel badly for the younger girls if they are still in the newly decorated bedroom.
    I am hoping there is another nook or crany room where the little girls can have their pony back, a colorful spring tree with blooms, flowers, butterflys etc, their own beds/ bunks desks, all the things little girls like...

    ReplyDelete
  76. this has nuthing to do with decorating...but i am tired of seeing baby births..show the rest of the family.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I LOVE the new room. I LOVE the old room, too. If I were to choose which room I like best, I would say the new room. It's more my type of style. I wish I could do that to my room. The only thing I can do is move the furniture. :(

    ReplyDelete
  78. I love the new room. I like changing my room cause I get bored of it.

    ReplyDelete
  79. I think it looks like a person of any age could be comfortable in the room. But why not have separate bedrooms for the older and younger girls. Jana is old enough to be some of the girls mom. It's doesn't seem right with that much square feet available they should share a room. Is the play room necessary? Can there just be toys in the little kids room?

    ReplyDelete
  80. I love the room, and think it is great that the girls all share a room together. I'm one of five children, we lost our dad in March to COPD it is one of the hardest things I have ever gone through. Cherish your parents and family always, you never know when they will be gone. I had no idea my dad would go so fast. I miss him dearly. I love to watch your show online and see how you all love one another. keep the faith and stay close.

    God Bless.

  81. very surprised this room have been updated before !

    ReplyDelete
  82. I love the new decor that the girls chose! Even the smallest girls, Josie, Jordyn and Jennifer, will appreciate that they have such a grown up room in a short time! Josie will be 6 this year so they are growing up fast. I am sure there are still some elements just for the youngest girls and I doubt they feel left out.

  83. Beautiful room!

  84. I have grown up with these girls and its about time

  88. I liked the old setup, it looked warmer. Now it's too formal.
    I also would love to see how all those girls share the room, whose beds are where. Originally they had 5 girls only with those slate beds. Then I guess they added some bunk beds. I'm curious what's it like right now.

  92. Poor Jenny is right! Why do the wishes of the older girls trump the wishes of the younger girls?

    ReplyDelete
  93. Some of the colors represent the bridesmaids dresses for Jill and Jessa's wedding.

  94. This room is depressing. Also, they should have thought about the younger girls since they will be there longer.

    1. I highly doubt that the older girls just did what they wanted to do! I am sure the little girls had some input too! We cannot see the entire room in the preview so it's hard to make any assumptions. The youngest girls will be 10, 8, 7, and 6 this year! I remember being about 8/9 years old when I wanted a more grown up room as a little girl! I think it is smart to plan ahead, it saves another room overhaul from having to be done in 3ish years :-)

  95. Why can't each girl have their own bed? I think they would get better sleep if they didn't have to share a bed with their sister.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Three twenty year olds spent the last five years, all adult years, with a pony on the wall, even Josie would outgrow the current room in a few years. The touches that make the room grown up or kiddie girl should be in the accessories, not on the wall. I still think with that much square feet they could have put up a partition or relocated the older girls to another part of the house.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Pretty,I am changing my room too.
    I also share a room with my sister.

    ReplyDelete
  98. The old room was much 'happier' the poor younger ones :(

    ReplyDelete
  99. please let try to be more posative

  100. I do not like that the picture frames are above the head of the bed. I live in an earthquake state and that is definately a NO NO. If fact the last earthquake I experienced-I was sleeping in bed and the bed shaking woke me up-If I had something like those frames on my wall above my head they may have fallen off the wall onto my head.

  101. this is totally amazing!!! I love the way it looks.....so grownup, so pretty, so stylish! I always wanted to have a room that looked like this. glorious job you girls!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

  103. So the little girls are in with the big girls??? Were the little girls there before? In my opinion, the older girls need their own room. Why, on earth, would little ones be placed in with the older girls. The older girls need some privacy from the little ones. The sleigh beds are too large. If they used smaller full size beds, they could probably have two rooms. I’m trying to wrap my head around why everyone is unhappy for the little girls. I’’m unhappy for the older girls sharing a room with giggly little girls. They need two rooms. That way, the little girls could have the pony & the old fashioned stuff while the older girls could have the pretty room. The house looks huge. Wonder how many bedrooms there are.

    ReplyDelete
  104. LOVE the new look. Will you please share the names of the paint colors? They look amazing!
