Question: I want to create a lounge space for my teenage children where they can hang out, watch TV and have friends for sleepovers. Have you done this before? How do I decorate it without it feeling too childish?

We chose a dark, durable fabric so stains would be less of an issue and went with a simple navy palette—perfect for any age. Take a look:
