My ROOM...

About Me I’m Vivi­enne ri­ley, 53, and I live with my son Charlie, 11, in a three-bed­room 1950s semide­tached in es­sex. We have been here for five years, and now that Charlie’s older, he was keen to be in­volved in up­dat­ing his room.

My chal­lenge While Charlie sim­ply wanted a decor scheme that was more grown up, we also had to con­tend with a rather un­usual and slightly awk­ward lay­out. the space was the re­sult of an ex­ten­sion added by the previous own­ers, but it hadn’t been well thought through, so we knew it would be quite tricky.

My wish list Charlie loved the idea of a bright, light in­dus­trial loft-style scheme with a New York vibe, while my main pri­or­ity was to in­tro­duce plenty of or­gan­ised stor­age and shelv­ing, and also cre­ate ded­i­cated zones for home­work – and a large drum kit.
