- Drew Décor Store answers your questions about decorating teenage bedrooms
Another great book that stems from my design education is ‘A Pattern Language’ by Christopher Alexander. Published in 1976 my dog eared copy has been a great source of wisdom over the years. A quick leaf through it for inspiration this week revealed a chapter called “A Cottage for a Teenager” inspiring me to think about teenage bedrooms. Alexander’s work is aimed at an American audience with perhaps more space than homes in the UK, but the spirit of his words makes a lot of sense. He writes that when children become adolescents their relationship to the family changes considerably as they take on more responsibility and their life outside the home becomes richer and more absorbing. They need both independence and the family to fall back onto. They can feel very confused by these conflicting feelings which is why they need space in the home that has more autonomy and character as a base for independent action. Alexander suggests a separate cottage linked to the house or a room with a private entrance. The cottage would later become a workshop, studio, home office or guest room. Some parents will worry about too much independence so he goes on to suggest that the cottage be placed so that the path from room to street passes through important communal spaces within the home such as kitchen and living areas. After reflecting on the idea of a cottage I questioned my teenage niece about her ideal space and I was delighted to be met with a slew of images she had already collected in her own eager anticipation. A few things struck me about her choice of interior decoration. Primarily that it was so uniquely stamped with her identity and activity - a lot of photos of friends and a lot of references to music, musical instruments, album covers and favourite bands. Strong colours and exciting mood lighting including cornice mounted LED lights and a patterned ceiling. No surface is off limits. This would be in stark contrast to the rest of the family home and so allows her to fully represent her identity. Top tip: For some fabulous teenage statement pieces we love the edgy flavour of the new fabric collection, Pop Rock, from John Paul Gaultier because it has great musical influences in the motifs and colourways that are striking and individual.

- Complementary colours and why opposites attract
Drew Décor Store answers your questions about colour. Our blogs are often inspired by the questions customers ask when they come into the store and we are often asked about colour and how to ‘see’ it. In the early years of my career I was all too often mystified by colour and put it into the ‘too hard basket’. It was only when I started painting regularly with watercolour that I began to take notice and look closely. While colour composition can look like some kind of unfathomable magic that only other people or professionals know about, the mechanics of colour have some overarching principles that make colour confidence easier to come by. In 2006 I discovered this wonderful book ‘Color’ by Betty Edwards and it has been my go to place for colour ever since. No other book required! So, let’s talk about complementary colours – these are colours that are opposite each other on the colour wheel. Edwards explains that the true meaning of the word complement is “to make complete” or to “prefect something”. In colour, complementary colours complete the central role of the primary colours. Here is a phenomenal colour concept which Edwards presents brilliantly and it is sort of jaw dropping in its simplicity. It’s about looking for the after image. “The after image is a ghostly but brilliant apparition of a complementary colour that appears after gazing steadily at a colour, and then shifting your gaze to a uncoloured surface.” Try it now – gaze at the blue square pictured below for about 20 seconds (or if you don’t like gazing at the screen choose a plain but bright colour form your surroundings. Now shift your gaze to blank sheet of white paper. When you look at the white paper a glowing red orange square will magically appear for a few moments. Red orange is the complementary of blue (opposite on the colour wheel). What you are seeing here is one colour contains the other in the after image. This is why complementary colours work so well together. They do this inherently. For some fabulous complementary colours we love Cole and Son’s new Seville collection and in particular, Bougainvillea and Piccadilly. And then for a more edgy flavour try the new collection from John Paul Gaultier – Un Monde Parfait (a perfect world in English), in particular Precieux Bleu. Top tip: When you use a coherent method for combining colour you can exclude the possibility of any irrelevant or clashing colour. Colours opposite on the colour wheel give you the most amount of contrast and therefore the most bang for your buck. And don’t forget, the team at Drew Décor are here to help! Want to find out more?
