Hip Design Trends to Please You and Your Teen

Use Hobby Pieces as Art

Whether it’s surfing, skateboarding, guitar playing, or fashion design, incorporate the objects your teen uses for favorite hobbies as part of the design of their space. Hang a skateboard rack on the wall, make a favorite formal dress a piece of art, or cover the walls in album covers. Not only will it give you an extra place to store all those accessories, but your teen will be surrounded by the things they love -- and this concept has a much more personal and powerful impact than any poster you’d frame and hang on the wall.
