Stylish Living for TeensBook - 2007
When kids hit the teenage years, a new challenge is born in the life of the family home and the home's current layout may need radical readjusting--and new issues, from controlling noise to allowing privacy, arise. As for the teenage bedroom, does it have to be covered in discarded clothes and days-old food? Interiors expert Judith Wilson proves that living with teenagers can be fun and comfortable for all the family. With chapters covering every key teen zone at home, the book focuses first on bedrooms. There are funky ideas for boudoirs for girls, crash pads for boys, and shared spaces and pods for sociable kids. Bathrooms, offering all-important privacy, are also featured. Judith examines games zones, dens and media rooms, and family spaces, and includes a section on self-contained living for kids who've finished school, but haven't yet flown the nest. With its informative text and practical approach, "Teen Zone" is an invaluable guide for parents, while quotes from real teens and fun "Why Don't You" panels will appeal to design-conscious teenagers.*Inspiring photographs of real family home by Winfried Heinze.*Cool, creative solutions to the changing face of family life.*How to achieve stylish living for teenagers and their parents.
