Hip Design Trends to Please You and Your Teen


Use Bold Colors

Gone are the days of pale hues on the walls. In today’s designs, people are encouraged to live out loud and surround themselves with the colors that make them happy. Allow your teen to choose his favorite color, and then work together to find the right hue of that color. Don’t be afraid to paint the walls purple, pink, lime green, or dark blue; to get the ideal shade of your chosen color, match it to a version that occurs in nature so you don’t end up with walls that look over-processed.
