    • Help with north facing Bedroom...Mexican or chic modern?, Please don't rate this room, this is the room we need to redecorate quickly as it is going to be rented out. We need some ideas please!

We rent this room to students. I often put the boys in this room but it needs to be suitable for girls too. It is north-facing, gets the sun in the morning but as the walls slope in, it can be quite a dark room so we need to choose lighter colours for most of the walls. 

We only have a budget to reuse existing furniture, but it could be painted or whitewashed. 

Should I go with a pine Mexican theme, we have a lot of decorative objects from Mexico and a pink and another blue duvet cover which could match a Mexican theme. 

I have other bedding of various colours but as the colours are different, I am not sure it will go with a new theme, plus I don't want to buy more.

I generally like modern, crisp, chic decor these days (my rustic mexico pine was an old choice) but as we have a limited budget I am not sure what I can do. The students might prefer a Mexican theme but it needs to look chic and crisp too. I don't know how to handle the sloping wall either. 

I would really appreciate you ideas :-) We are based in the counrtyside close to Paris, France., Bedrooms Design

    • My Purple & Turquoise Retreat, I am 21 and this is my bedroom
I received a comment from CJS_216 saying that I should try and put my bed at an angle so I did
What do you all think?
I know it's annoying to see my room so much but when I do post usually at least 1 thing is changed
People repost all the time and do not receive the mean comments  and poor ratings that I do
I made a pretty major change and wanted to see what you all think of it
And I did not have an unlimited budget to spend to make this space perfect
 But it works for me
I want to apologize to all of you for the reposts this is it because everybody is just gonna keep getting meaner the more reposts
This time I am showing off a bigger change that I have made
So please give me honest feedback 
Please rate and comment, Bedrooms Design
