Their own space to create!
We aim to look at this one through the eyes of the teenager! Remember that they see the room as their den, more than a place to sleep and somewhere they can escape to and have their own collections and paraphernalia of ‘stuff’ associated with hobbies, school, music, etc!
As if it were their own mini apartment, consider areas for work, play and sleeping, – when space permits. They want to hang out with friends, do homework and switch off in a space that reflects their personality and tastes.
For our teenager room at Cintra, we wanted to reflect a vibrant room with energy with the orange, black, grey palette and simple modern furniture for bedsides, and a desk area for study – with bright prints showing a love of planets and music. This room was quite graphic in style and functional with the oversized clock and leaning bookcase, not fixed on the wall. This allowed the possibility of moving the floating shelves to the desk area when needed, or just for a refresher of the room! There was enough space left on the rug, to add an easy chair or floor cushions for when friends popped by.
