    I want to change my bedroom....

    Mainly just a ramble....moved home from uni and really want to change my room as its not been decorated for 8years+...I was thinking a black and fuschia theme....but my dad says he doesnt have time to put a different carpet in or wallpaper....So I only have the choice to paint and get a rug.....
    My question is, does anyone have the same theme? My room is average size and I dont want the black to make it look tiny and nasty....thought it would be easy enough with walpaper, half and half/patterned etc, but I cant think of a way to do it using paint....any ideas?
    Seen all the accessories I want and Im dying to get them....but just think its going to be a waste.
    Currently have a bright red carpet and orange walls (teenage disaster area!!!!) lol

    Yeah I thought about that but to me red and black look very moods and grumpy....black and fuschia looks bright...more of a contrast between the colours....repped anyways

    this is a good idea....my bedroom is a mix of different shades of red, right up to a dark maroon, not restricted to one shade of accessory then, i have all different shades of cushions etc, it looks really good too

    :thumbsup: maybe this should be in fs/ft....anyone wanna swap my bedroom lol

    I think dark colours will always make it look that bit smaller, we have just changed out living room to darker colours, but I think it looks more modern and neat and tidy.

    Love the colours you want but my OH would kill me!! lol

    yeah....I dont mind it looking a bit smaller (my room is average double bedroom sixe, has 3 drawer towers, computer table, full wardrobe and king size bed in it....without looking too full), and I agree, the clean cut contrast colours make places look tidier

    Im trying to talk my dad round so he will do it all but its a no go area I think....just love the 2 colours together and I have seen all the curtains etc for it too :s

    lol I meant moody*

    and it doesnt look too bad, but I think the red generally isnt contrasting enough with the black...so will make the room look darker....:roll:

    not enough black....I basically want a bedroom to go with ]these curtains...

    Why dont you buy some cheap muslin fabric and dye it black, you can cover the wall in it, either flat or ruched, then your Dad wouldn't need to paint!! It would also be a lot easier to change back to a lighter colour when you get fed up!! I think you will get a shock how much smaller the room will look with black walls, maybe a better bet is to have a feature wall in dark wallpaper on the headboard wall and keep the rest of the walls light, your curtains would also stand out against the lighter colour and be more of a feature. As to the red carpet if it is a pinky shade of red ie: raspberry rather than an orangey red ie: strawberry then it will probably look fine, just add some red accessories as well as the hot pink ones you love to make it look as though it belongs!
