My Fashionable daughter who has to be "a la mode". Wants to redo her room for like the 7th time. She says she wants it to be unique. Also she was thinking of Hot Pink and a Chevron pattern on her window wall. (The pattern would be black and white). I would like to know what colour would look best with this flooring. And unique styles and patterns. Help me?

You could suggest that she saves up and does it herself as long as the walls and floors etc are not damaged. Our parents let us redesign our rooms but we had to pay for the paint etc.

Frankly if you did something like this in black and white with hot pink accents - no one would notice the floor!

When was the last time it was done? This is more an issue of parenting than design. I'd let her change some things like curtains, pillows (and anything she can do herself) but not a complete redo if this is a frequent thing. Does she watch a lot of design tv shows?

I just re designed my daughter's room for the 3rd time, this time i used more nuetral wall colors, light grey,white trim & 1 accent wall with her favorite color (light teal). Her furniture is mostly black so i used some other black accents, mirror, rugs, pillows, etc. Comfortor with greys, teals & white. Once she has moved out I only have 1 wall to repaint & can easily recreate a guest room.

I guess I am confused by the question. Are you asking if black and hot pink work with the floor or are you looking for room decorating ideas? Are we talking teenager? Can we see the room?

Sorry for all the questions. Just trying to help. I think you are a great mom for being a good sport about this!

A hardwood floor can be thought of as "neutral ground" so to speak. Don't try to design around it. Some pictures of the room would help us out. Also, generally with strong patterns and colors, it's a good idea to use them in small doses, like on accessories. Or take a look at wallpaper panels that can be hung and removed when you want to change the look.

AJD Interiors - movable wallpaper panels, what a great idea! After so many years of removing it in renos have always hated wallpaper, but that's something I could live with.

rowekamp- I learned to love wallpaper this way! Yes, much easier on the wallet, too, as you only need a roll or two to make a couple of panels.... : )
