This week the Design Doctors design teenage bedrooms and give advice on making a house a home.
Gerard lives in Rush with his twin children, Aoife and Ronan, age 17. The twins mother died when they were just 11 and Ger says he lost interest in the house altogether. He admits he knows nothing about interiors or colour or creating an atmosphere but with the help of the Design Doctors Ger hopes to make their house a home again.
Ger recognizes that the twins bedrooms were originally decorated when they were children and he is keen to give Aoife and Ronan bedrooms that are reflective of the fact that they are now young adults.
The Design Doctors need to create bedrooms that the twins can feel happy in and be proud of. They need to be multifunctional to allow them to bring friends home as well as a place to rest and to study.
Although Ronan is shy, Aoife is very enthusiastic about learning how to creating a warm and homely atmosphere and The Design Doctors want to show her how it’s done.
