My son is into vampires, mostly like buffy the vampire slayer and he wants his room painted black trimmed in red! Anyone have a suggestions on how to fix it up and NOT look so closed in?? Thanks........

Just my two cents but if he's a good kid, he's earned the right to express himself in his own room. Make a deal with him: Once he moves out or goes on to college, he must repaint the room a color of your choosing. Paint is so inexpensive these days that it's not worth arguing over.

My suggestion: Instead of painting the entire room black with red trim, use the theory of paint squares. Allow to him to paint sectioned off paint squares black and trim those paint squares in red. This will allow him the color he wants without overwhelming the room. He can use these squares to display some of his gothic paraphernalia. It will allow a greater highlight for those items that he has thus far collected.
