Teen Transition: Making Spaces More Age Appropriate

The transition from childhood to adult is not an easy one. With so many changes happening at once and without regularity, having a space that offers comfort and refuge is more important than ever. Not to risk looking “uncool,” here are images of fabulous, transitional teen bedrooms showing color, light and texture. With college only a few years off, why not embrace these changes now and take steps to prepare the space as a future guest room. We’ve created a “get-the-look” using Hudson Valley Lighting® fixtures, perfect for all—be it jock, prep, emo, goth or whatever!
