The Star Tribune reports that Amy Kelly, the mother of a soon-to-be teenage boy, wanted to totally remake his room into something that was a more mature by using the appropriate colors and accessories.

She teamed up with designer Linda Ball to create something that she told the news source "would carry him through high school and even college when he comes home." To do this, she focused on the colors of the room, employing a palette of that predominantly consisted of reds, grays and steel blues.

Kelly applied these hues in long stripes, with blue as the primary color. She also touched the backs of her son's bookshelves with a deep crimson color that makes the books stand in contrast, rather than being part of the background, according to the news source.

She also used blue Roman shades for window treatments, since she wanted that to be the room's dominant color. Experts claims that, since windows can be a focal point of any area, it's best to hang this variety of shades, since their soft, light-filtering fabric can perfectly complement surrounding colors.

Roman shades are available with an array of features - one can choose from solar screen, eco-friendly or room darkening.
