Today's teenagers are design-conscious and up to date on the latest trends. But they're torn between childhood and adulthood. Most teens have beloved toys they're not ready to give up, but look for a room that's older and more sophisticated than their childhood room.
While there certainly was a time when the home kitchen was seen as the domain of women, that's far from the case today. From self-sufficient bachelors to egalitarian couples to wannabe celebrity chefs, more men than ever are cooking for themselves and for their loved ones. Of course, not many of these men want their kitchens covered in pictures of kittens in chef's hats or even the bright, spastic yellows or quaint ginghams of "country chic" and designers are catching on. These modern kitchens are sleek and ready for any style-conscious man to get to work.
Living rooms in grey and yellow are very lively, refreshing and raise the mood because yellow reminds of the spring and summer, which is especially necessary in cold seasons when we lack sunlight.

It's hard to browse through design magazines without coming across a modern room that incorporates a standout Mid-Century chair, or an industrial kitchen that relies on the exciting colors of vintage appliances.

Bedrooms are a retreat from the world that should be a place where you can feel at ease after a long day. Outfitting your room in soothing colors is a good way to help your bedroom become a tranquil sleeping space. Start by focusing on high impact areas, like the walls and floor space. Using calming greens, beiges or misty blues works well in areas like these because they create a peaceful, serene feeling that will help you feel more relaxed. Keep your bedding colors simple and avoid any bright colors or patterns that might hamper your sleep. Instead, add in tactile luxuries, like fur throws or sumptuous woolen blankets to add texture to the room.
Finding the right pillow — as well as sleeping on the wrong one — can be a real pain in the neck. Ironically, choosing your perfect pillow can force you to sacrifice precious sleep as you peruse the far reaches of the internet in the night in search of the right one (we've all been there).
