Your Home Magazine featuring our Ampersand Table Lamp and Festoon Lights
When it comes to decorating a teenager’s bedroom it’s important to inject some fun into the room. As well as adding practical furniture and accessories that will aid development and help with important milestones. In the June issue of Your Home Magazine Stylist Emma Fishman features a fantastic room transformation, from a garishly bright bedroom to a sophisticated and stylish kid’s den.
Zhen Chu wanted a grown-up hideaway where he could spend time with his friends but also a comfy desk area for studying. With his GCSE’s coming up he needed a practical study area but somewhere that was still fun. Zhen’s mum Joo chose a monochrome palette of greys, blacks with hints of yellow for her son’s room. A touch of geometric print gave the space a more funky design including the bedding print and a comfy zigzag pouffe.
Practical lighting is key for a study/sleeping space but it should also be fun and have character and that’s where Litecraft’s lighting helped. Festoon lighting is bang on trend at the moment so it’s no wonder these little gems were used in Zhen’s room. Clipped to the top of the walls along the window and across the wall our Festoon string lights give an extra glow when the sun goes down. Festoon lights are so versatile, they can be placed pretty much anywhere in the home, across a mantle piece, hung vertically down the side of a wardrobe or simple draped across exposed beams. They instantly add a more fun and laid-back ambience when lit and look great in the evening. Shop our festoon lighting here, choose from our plain white design or our multi-coloured option.
Layering is a big theme in this makeover, lots of scatter cushions and throws to add texture. You can also add layering with the use of lamps and ornaments. For instance, the side table and shelf area feature a layered approach consisting of books, frames, plants and a clock. On the other side of the bed a large framed print sits behind the bedside table whilst our Black Ampersand Table Lamp is propped up on the window sill. Using marquee style lighting is a great look for a teenager’s room, it adds a fun vibe and Ampersands are super on trend at the moment, not to forget the added bonus of extra illumination. Litecraft offer a great range of marquee sign lighting.
