Would this fit in with the whole 'theme' of my room?
Question: Im 13 (almost 14) and I'm redecorating my room. I'm painting it lavender with white baseboards / window and door frames. I have medium brown carpet (that was put in when the house was built - 30 years, ew) and I can't change it 'cause we rent and we're not allowed laminate or hardwood upstairs. Im painting all my furniture black (dresser, nightstand, bookshelf) and I'm buying a new black desk and the metal bad frame with the wheels on the bottom. I'm getting a white comforter and black sheets. Black pillow cases. 2 white decorative pillows and 1 black one.. I'm getting a black and white picture of marilyn monroe to hang on my wall. Ok. well there's no need to go on or you would be reading this forever. You get the point, it's lavenders walls and a black and white theme. It's not exactly paris themed but I'm going to get mini wire models of the eiffel tower. But currently I want to collect old records. Like, the vinyl records. But I'm not sure if it would go with my room :$ Like I was hoping to get an old Beatles, Elvis and Led Zeppelin vinyl record and hang just the records on my wall not the cover.. but I'm kinda nervous that it might clash with the rest of my things or ruin the theme. What do you think?

Elvis was The Beatles and Zeppelin's main inspiration so they definitely go well together. As long as you like it who cares if it clashes with what ever. It is your room after all.

I actually think the wire Eiffel towers may clash more than the records, if anything would look out of place. Nothing you described stuck out as clashing to me though.
Look up "snow queen cake" or "ice princess cake" Cakes: http://www.weddingfavors-smart.com/image... http://www.perfect-wedding-day.com/image... http://www.perfect-wedding-day.com/image... Also look up snow queen, snow queen decorations, snow queen party, ice princess party, winter wedding decorations For decorations spray painted branches silver or pale blue, and put in silver or crystal vases, or string them with iridescent crystals. You can also buy cheap tulle or satin in pale blue, silver and white and hang it along the tops of walls in drapey arches Sort of like the wide u shaped bits on this window treatment, decorate the high points with tiara's or snowflakes cut out of shimmery paper Faux christmas trees in white silver and blue decorated with faux crystal garlands and themed decorations would be lovely (but expensive) White feathers or plastic "crsystals" are another option for scattering. Silver antique style frames hung on the wall would be another cool modern decorations You could drape tables with pale blue or silver satin and then cover with white lace table clothes. Paper snowflakes can be hung anywhere or scattered to aid in the theme Some decorations ideas/inspiration: http://lh5.ggpht.com/eventconnoisseur/R69l8yDKnvI/AAAAAAAAAS4/3KkWWRCcp1I/s800/image61_thumb http://i.ehow.com/images/GlobalPhoto/Articles/5126129/iStock000004709709XSmall-main_Full.jpg http://www.blogcdn.com/www.stylelist.com/blog/media/2008/10/white-decor-brides.jpg http://lh3.ggpht.com/eventconnoisseur/R69lrSDKnpI/AAAAAAAAATk/Gtb-ig4-45Y/s800/image46_thumb Dresses/inspiration: http://www.fashion4ward.net/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/winter-wedding-dresses-for-brides-2.jpg http://www.splendicity.com/files/400/2008/07/maggie-sottero-estella-blue-mist.jpg http://www.ihatebryanboy.com/bryanboy/images5/vuitton_fall2008_gown.jpg I found a lot of this stuff looking at wedding inspiration but the same basic ideas apply I had to massively cut down this answer because there were tons more links originally
The colors are fine - I'd either go with the Paris theme OR the music theme though. I don't know how well they'd really go together..
here's to cure the paint phobia....laugh..this is common but pink in the main living areas would not be a good choice... because you have a lot of brown i will not suggest a mature tan... have you asked or checked the lease in reference to painting often you have to paint it back to the color it was so not worth the effort.. you want a quality paint valspar from lowes or bher from hone depot...both are pricey both worth it...most likely you'll need about 2 gallons...on the low side..buy a satin you can wipe it clean and it has a beautiful rich luster...in reference to color there are cheaper paints ....but the color pigment is not the same and not as long wearing i would suggest a green tone...an earthy green not a mint or pastel...go to lowes and home depot and get some of the free paper paint samples...have a color in mind and just get a couple...there are a lot of choices and it makes choosing more difficult after you get the little rectangles of joy i tape them to the wall where the light comes in and look at them in different light...you do not want to go a dark color because it will darken the room to much so keep it on the light side...but not pastel some girls are painting one major wall like an accent color..brick red...i would not suggest to do that..you need a change on all the wall and a consistent color...also keep the ceiling and baseboard wall white.. my favorite green which may be too dark is bher from home depot..crocodile green in a satin happy painting *(*
