My daughter's room is a 10x11, she is 16 years old and she wants to decorate her room with red walls and gold, she asked for gold chandelier, she also would like to have a nail station and a side where she can play her music. Her dresser is white. My problem is that I can't picture her room in red and gold. I need a hand with your fabulous ideas. Thank you!

I'm thinking Hollywood glam.....Here is my suggestion:

1) Accent wall behind the bed using wallpaper
2) Paint the ceiling red and the other walls a golden shade
3) The drum shade on this chandelier makes it more modern

4) A linen upholstered headboard
5) Some mirrored night stands with a golden antique look
6) Some gold bedding (with a mohair pillow)
7) Some decorative pillows with gold beading

Red walls are very hard to live with in the long haul for a l6 year old. Pick out a new comforter with red in it and then I would add a red desk/chair or paint the dresser red. Keep the walls neutral. A little red goes a long way.

Bold! With the dark floors, I'd use lots of gold and white tones:

Final touches...

8) Some linen drapery
9) A red dresser (or desk)
10) A mirror for the dresser
11) A tufted linen chair (or paint the little chair in red)

I like a lot of these ideas that have been posted. I think having warm, yellow-gold walls would make the room seem warm, without shrinking the already tight space with red walls. I think red accents with gold walls would be very nice! I might also go with a champagne gold sheer for the window instead of red. I really, really love what Lydia has suggested. My only other suggestion might be to paint about a one foot red boarder around the ceiling instead of the whole thing red.

Keep gold to a minimum , like a chandler. A wall paper behind bed,in red and gold. Then paint other walls a pale gold. This is a very small room a dark color on walls will close it in. Get a cream head board tufted in velvet. Center bed on that wall. With a mirror night stand and a hanging very small chandler over it light in gold with bling. On windows red velvet panels get 4 tie back on side with gold chain. Paint dresser a black incl desk. Spray paint chair gold metallic. Use desk as nail station. Is there another wall it could go on? Bedding a red and gold print. 2 shams. Get in a solid gold. Add a gold 24" sunburst mirror over bed hang low 8" above headboard. Or get a wood headboard used and spray paint gold metallic. No Xmas lights. Or clutter.

I'm sorry she wants chandelier where fan is. Not big not to low. Gold. Don't do one on nite stand just a small lamp in black and gold. A lamp on dresser to and desk. Don't match.

red and gold are good with together,but your daughter wants to live and play music or she wants to read her books in her room,I think when you use warm colors in this room,your daughter won't be relaxed. You can choose a light color that your daughter likes it and then you use gold and red in color of her bed and lamp and you try not to use red color on the walls of her room.
