I am a 9 year old girl. I love any thing that has to do with music, taking pictures, and hanging posters. But I have a problem. My room has no actual theme at all. Please tell me... What do I do?

If you like to take pictures , treat your room as a studio. Blow up photos, collect old cameras, they are cheap, and use your photos as collections on your walls.
My oldest is 8 so I haven't done a big girl's room yet but I've done a circus theme room, pink hearts & roses, tea party, a garden room, and a transportation theme. I haven't finished my 8 year old's current room but to start with, we found a comforter set that we like and we've been getting stuff to coordinate with that. It has roses & stripes & polka dots in green, pink and red. The main thing is to start with something you really like. The hearts & roses room started from a pretty rug I had. The garden room started with a bed frame (found lots of cute accessories like painted bird houses, etc in the garden section of stores). From that one thing that you have or one idea, start looking for things in places other than traditional room decorating areas in stores. For music, you could decorate with old CD's, get some sheet music and stick it up as a wall border, use only black and white, things like that. The 2 key things are to look everywhere for things that tie in to the idea or item you start with and to pick 2 or 3 main colors and coordinate everything with those. Search internet sites for decorating kids rooms or teen rooms & you might find ideas there as well. Don't get caught up buying a whole line of matching everything (comforter, curtains, accessories, etc) from one store. It gets expensive and it limits your choices. Get one or two things from a matching line, then coordinate w/ other brands or items. Good luck and have fun!
how about this.instead of hanging the pictures on the wall, get a large board and place ribbons criss crossing. then you can place diffrent pictures when it suits your fancy and not have to stick to 1 theme. also avoids holes in the wall. have more than 1 and place diffrent things on them.
For someone who loves music you could do a music theme. Paint large music notes on the walls, or have a sheet music border around the wall near the celing or both. Then leave room for posters of your favorite music groups. To hang your picture that you have taken hang a piece or ribbon, yarn or fishing line between two nails. Decorate clothes pins to look like music notes (cut back cardstock into the shape of music notes and glue to a clothes pin) and use the clothes pins to pin your photographs up to the string. You can have your line up against the wall or you can have it cross your room like a clothes line (just hung high enough so nobody hurts them self).
I hope this helps
My daughter did this in her room: went to a thrift store and bought records - 45's and 33's and used them to decorate her room. You could make a border halfway up the wall and then use posters of your favorite music groups to decorate one of your walls. On another of your walls you could use the records as picture frames if you could get someone to help you cut them.
i want a nice room where i can chill and have fun in.
i want a different room than otha people. i want to have a really cool room
Get lots of different types of things in one color and go from there!
So you said you were 9-I'm 11. I have the same exact problem that you do. What I'm doing is thinking of my absolutely favorite things. My favorite thing is horses,because I've been around them and riding them since I was 3. When my oldest brother comes home from college, he and my dad will redecorate my room, make me my new bed,etc.. What you can do is pick your favorite things(as you said music,pictures and posters). Now choose which one you like the best. Each wall will have its own theme. One will have a music theme, the next will have pictures,etc.. The wall that you like best is the one in which you'll put your bed in. Your dresser will be on a different wall, your desk on the other.
Here's what you can do for your walls:
*Music-you can hang up all your favorite lyrics on the wall. If you live in a rented home and you can't make any permanent changes to your walls, here's what I do,just paint the wall however you want it and when you leave that house, then just repaint it the original color. stencil on some music notes or that black shadow that they've got on the iTunes cards. I don't know if you can, but you can get a fuzzy rug and cut it into the shape of a musical note too. you can do the same with a pillow
You can paint in big letters''Picture Perfect'' or something like that if you want. Get a cardboard box and blow up a picture of the front of a camera and paste it on. there you have a camera box! You can make a huge collage of all the pictures that you've taken.
I hope that all of this advice helped you.
