It’s better than I’d imagined

Josie Illingworth-Law enjoyed months of planning to ensure her new bedroom was the perfect teenage space

Josie’s new room is a great mix of calming base shades with pops of bright colour for teenage appeal

Having spent years sharing a bedroom with her sister, Josie Illingworth-Law, 14, was thrilled when a planned extension to the family home meant she would finally get her own space. ‘As well as the new build, the layout upstairs was going to change and my bedroom made from two small box rooms joined together,’ smiles Josie. The new house would give more space for her mum and dad and three sisters Florence 11, Mabel, eight, and Olive, six, so everyone was very excited. ‘Even before the builders began I started thinking about all the different things I could do with my room,’ explains Josie. ‘I had lots of fun getting various ideas together and couldn’t wait to have it organised properly so I had space for all my clothes and books, as well as a big desk to work on. I looked at Pinterest and started a board with images of colour schemes I liked as well as decorating plans. It was a fun way to spend time and explain to my family what I hoped to create, and so even before the room was built, I knew exactly how I wanted it to look!’ she laughs.
