Athena Diaconis, 14, of Hatboro, Pennsylvania, can hardly believe she ever liked her room's formerly pale-peach walls and the daintily painted flowers on her furniture. An active kid involved in several after-school activities, Athena felt that her room no longer matched her personality.
It had become merely a pit stop for sleeping and a holding pen for her stuff. Indeed, mounds of clothes and textbooks were piled in the corners of the room. In addition to the unhip furnishings, lack of storage was a major problem.
What was the solution for both spaces? Updating the furnishings so they reflect teen sensibilities and adding some much-needed storage.
