Hey, anyone got any good teen-ish themes for a bedroom? I finally got irritated with the little boy baseball theme my room currently has (I've lived here for 4 years, and this is from before I moved here). All my furniture is mismatched, well used, and falling apart. So I'm going to buy new furniture (hopefully) and paint my room. But I'd really like some sort of theme to go by, and I really don't have any sense of style. Just, no pink please. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">

My room has a "celestial" theme. The walls are light blue, there is a shallow shelf about a foot or so down from the ceiling and everything above it is dark navy blue, and there are stars all over the dark blue. The carpet, curtain that is my closet "door", and the valence around my window are all the same blue as the ceiling. My two dressers are blue, my sheet sets all have clouds/moons/stars on them and are white/blue/yellow. My blankets are blue and yellow, and my bed skirt is yellow. My computer desk isn't blue.. but it works okay in the room! I love my room <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> My dad always says its the nicest in the house.

How about a nature theme? I just redid my living/dining rooms and went with that. I used a lot of earth tones and since I have hard wood floors, I used earthy green area rugs with leaves on them.<br><br><br><br>
However, this would only suit you if you're into nature, of course. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I <3 interior design ...eh, I'll just take a picture for you, it's hard to describe <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"> Beware - large image and messy bedroom.<br><br><br><br>
My grandmother and I made the curtains, and she made the quilt. I painted one of the pictures on the wall, and in one picture, you can tell I'm painting another, lol. The vanity we got at an auction for, like, 20 bucks. My desk's really ugly, but I think I'm going to paint it, and get a new desk chair, and recover the vanity chair. I just use stuff I like to decorate - dried flowers, stuffed animals, candles, clocks, books, etc. The thing is to make your room work for you. If you go to <a href="http://www.hgtv.com" target="_blank">HGTV's website</a> I'm sure you can get some good ideas.<br><a href="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/8/8f/8f426ff4_vbattach526.jpeg"><img alt="LL" src="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/8/8f/525x525px-LL-8f426ff4_vbattach526.jpeg" style="width:525px;height:359px;"></a>

I like to print out Salvador Dali pictures from the web or tear up calendars I like and put them in frames. It's inexpensive wall art, voila! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"> As far as goth I'd suggest peices by McFarlane (I found a couple of his Spawn peices in ceramic when I was in Japan) and/or dark metal candle holders... Also black satin sheets (I have some, they're nice) and a red velvet comforter would fit in... Hope this helps...

Oneness, do you happen to know a vague idea of the shade of red? Is it really really bright red, or a darker one?

the red is a dark red.. but with a hint of blood red almost like a dried blood color but not as dull.. we were worried we may end up hating it as we were painting, but we ended up loving it..<br><br><br><br>
each side of the window has a black sheer panel and a kacki colored sheer panel over the black ones (we switch from kacky to red when she feels she needs a change) with the clear lights under the sheers, but still very easily seen. her two painting have beautiful red roses in them. she used black, kacki and red candles on the table top, a black clock and several small black and red painted cork boards covered in personal things.. she framed a few pictures of her friends in misc red and black frames.. when she needs a change she uses a kacky colored blanket with red or black sheets. her black chair and ottoman are fluffy over sized ones.. the room has a goth appeal, but also has a romantic feel.. she once said it had a emo goth/punk feel about it..<br><br><br><br>
she also used pillows that are a zebra pattern but in kacki and black.<br><br><br><br>
i will look around and see if we have any picture and if i do i will post them on here.<br><br><br><br>
hope that made sense..
