I need ideas on what I should redo my room like. I will give you a little bit about my self.
I am a teenager.
I kinda want a modern look. (sophisticated)
I don't really want a lot of color.
I LOVE chevron.
I wanted to do like a teal chevron with maybe a black and white Paris. but I can't find it! :/ so if you find one like it I will love you forever and always. thanks!

I was maybe going to paint one wall (opposite if door) like this. and leave the rest my color now. (like a light brown / tan) and black and white Paris. I need pics please! maybe like how I just explained it. cause I can't find one like or closely like that no matter how many time I look.

Who could NOT try to help you when you pledge your love? LOL!

Maybe you would be more inspired if you thought "France" rather than Paris?

Think Teal ... France ... Chevron.

Do you have bedding in mind? What kind of furniture do you have? Any Pics to share?

You could do a French feel with bedding like this and add teal as an accent like pictures above or teal chevron pillows or teal chevron bedding.

I don't know what kind of bed. I am looking for a queen white platform bed for cheap. and I have a white dresser. so I am hoping to keep my furniture (except my bed obviously) but do you have any pictures of room ideas?

Something more like this? You can use this as an accessory too.

okay that is so cute but WAY too expensive maybe a bedspread under $50. I know I'm being difficult but my dad just started a new job and we aren't used to the pay yet. he came from coke with a lot of money then a little bit. but it will do but maybe under $50 would be perfect

Bedding is expensive. Maybe you could just get the 2 pillows shams and use a blanket/comforter that you already have?

What if you paint everything in your room white? Sounds like you have a lot of energy. That will give you a great base for the French look you want.

Then, as saratoga and others have suggested shop the consignment shops and TJ Maxx for the accents.

The bed you want that matches the dresser you already have could work with any of these French themed ideas!

It would be great if you used teal or pink paint for your accent wall and painted the rest of your room white. Paint is inexpensive, especially at Walmart. You just have to choose the right shade of the paint you want for your accent wall. :) Maybe you could get your dad or your mom to help you paint!

Just in case you haven't already done this, I typed in 'chevron bedroom' under the photo section here on Houzz and got a lot of ideas.

What is your total budget? Are you trying to do it all at once or start with bedding and add stuff when you've saved the money for it?

my budget is probably no more than $50 for bedding and I would like it to be paris themed kind of. and I am going to do like a chevron accent wall. an have you ever heard of mirrored dressers? well I really want those but they are way too expensive so we found another way to do it it's called aluminum leaf and when you cover it at with aluminum leaf it's a way cheaper way of doing that. instead of 150$ it's provably 50$ for it so yeah I thought it would go good with the Paris and chevron theme. :D
