Why This Room Works

A teenage guy's room centers on one thing: comfort! Design the bed with plenty of layers that can be removed or added as the weather warms up and gets cool. A framed pinboard on the wall lets him customize his space with personalized style — an oversized initial, for example, or a few favorite mementos. Choose an accent color that will work throughout the room, whether it's a bold red or something more neutral.
