I remember when I was 13 and I finally had a room to myself. For the first time I could paint as I wanted and put what I wanted. Over the years I could go to better reflect my style, but I was not always clear.

In women, the ideal colors are pink, lilac and yellow. You can also include colors that stand out in some cushions or furniture.
According to Karina, the latest trends in decoration youth opt for simple, minimalist elements: low beds with upholstered headboards and modular furniture to facilitate the change of position. This is a paramount issue, because adolescents are in constant change.

In the event that the room is shared by siblings, according to the architect, it is preferable that they are the same gender to avoid further conflict and discomfort. What most is like is the use of cabins, steel stairs and auxiliary drawers and shelves. I have two brothers about my age, and I thank my parents for giving us the largest room of the house during the time the share. You’ll never be able to avoid arguments and fights between siblings, but if you try to give everyone space to promote a peaceful coexistence.
