But the thing that baffles me is why 12 year olds opt for Nordic minimalism as the style of choice. I mean when I was a kid I loved bright colours and crazy patterns...oh hang on...that hasn't really changed, but I mean most kids either didn't care about decorating their rooms or just stuck a couple of band posters on the wall, job done!
Not anymore! Jeez these kids are so sophisticated it blows my mind...

I think part of the reason that this style is so popular with teens is that it is easy to keep clean and neutral for all the relentless social media pics and selfies they do...
Big thanks to Klara for these pictures.
When I asked my daughter what were the key features of this look she said 'black, white and minimal. The focus is on the details'.
So there we have it... thats what kids seem to like these days ... here are some fancy versions..

One of the things I do really like about this whole monochrome kids room thing is the gender neutral feel of it which is in keeping with the way society seems to be moving, I like that.

That looks like a bedroom someone goes to die in! Ugh!!!
See what I mean!
