A Teen Retreat

Every house needs a sanctuary. You could build you safe haven in your very home if you have an extra room. If not safe haven, then think of it like an ‘escape’ and God knows every mom needs one once in a while. Don’t get me wrong, motherhood is fulfilling but sometimes we all need a good cry.

Coming back to the escape room let’s call it. If you have a shed or a garden room, you could go crazy designing it and doing our own interior. Just let your creativity and imagination go wild.

Every mum has been a teenager once. No matter how long it has been but we all remember the hardships of being somewhere between a child and an adult. My escape room/shed is being designed for my teenage daughter and her friends. Teenage girls need a space where they can feel secure and have a peaceful environment. My shed is going to be just that. Somewhere my Kim can do her homework without being disturbed by Ella, hang out with her friends or just spent time with herself listening to music and her thoughts. Essential for this shed is positivity. Just the other day I received a cushion from an event which has an amazing inscription on it; it says ‘she believed she could so she did’.

As a teacher I am always looking to make life easy for teenagers and I believe the younger generation needs some space from time to time. This shed is going to be perfect for Kim and her friends. This year they are going to take their GCSEs and they need some place to study all the while maintain their hobbies and interests. The room has some calming grays and yellows. The room also needs to be trendy for their like.

The rug in the shed stole my heart. Although I designed this room with Kim and her privacy spot in mind, but I intend to pop in here during the mornings away from the laptop and enjoy some peace, quiet and a cup of coffee. Ah, the good things of life.
