Bright Modern Attic

A neutral attic room gets a modern makeover into a bright teenage hangout.

Before: Blank Slate

Now that her daughter Jenny is entering her teens, June has decided to allow her some input on the color choices for their attic — Jenny's designated play space. June decorated their whole house in creams and browns, so her daughter's love of modern design and bright colors has this conservative mom worried. Will June really give Jenny free reign, and how bright will Jenny's color choices be?

The spacious attic room has cream-colored walls and beige carpeting — June's preferred colors for decorating. But Jenny wants to turn it into a more hip hangout where she can do schoolwork and listen to music. She likes bright colors and is eager to make her own choices. The room has a couple of futons, a small computer desk and a few odds and ends, but nothing to define the style of the room.
