    Decide what you want your room to appear as. If possible, try not to go for a theme. You like lots of different things,so your room revolving around just one thing will only make things difficult! An idea is to have a base colour, namely on your walls, and other colours around your room. Make a plan of the way your furniture will be laid out too. If you want a theme go for a theme that covers a lot of different interests. Ex: Get a modern bedspread and light then decorate with silver and blue.

    If you're allowed to, find a colour you love for your walls. A sunny kinda girl? Maybe yellow or creamy white suits you best. Outgoing and confident? A light green or blue is for you. Girly and creative? Pink or purple?!

    Start to move your furniture. Find good positions and make sure none of your furniture covers anything you want to see, i.e., a window. Empty stuff like desks and drawers before moving. Lay contents on bed and put back when finished. Donate anything you don't want to the charity shop and throw away anything which is too mucked up to keep. Empty your bin,too.
