Don’t fret when your teen insists on having black décor in their bedroom. Take heed of the old adage ‘go with the flow….it’s cool’, because quite frankly the more you protest about their colour choice the more they’ll insist!
Black and white have been winning colour combinations for decades, today is not exception. Tone black down with expanses of white and you’ll see that black is indeed a cool colour choice.
If you really can’t bare the thought of black you can always opt for trendy colours such as grey-black – it’s still black, just not as intense as true black.
Throw grey and/or aubergine into the colour palette to create a room that hits all the right notes in terms of style; giving you a peaceful life along with a satisfied teen.
Use a zesty lime or orange to contrast against black, you’ll see that these two colours and surprisingly refreshing.
Monochromatic black to grey is extremely refined and chic, perfect for either gender. It’s also a very mature colour combo that will suit older teens.
Take the 50 Shades of Grey approach to create a mature teen room they will drool over.
Just like lime or orange, citrus yellow adds a pop of colour to a black décor.
Go for blackboard black walls and let them create their own wall art. It’s a great way (and somewhat sneaky!) of preventing the room from being totally black.
Add a splash of pink to make a teenage girl’s bedroom look incredibly chic and stylish.
Black with ivory, frills and lacy can look pretty and feminine.
