    Been there and done it. In the end we opted for something quite dramatic. I painted the teen's walls in panels of dark chocolate brown with white panels. She has a square room, and this effectively divided the two walls into three zones. (the outer wall are windows) and the other wall I filled with an IKEA sliding cupboard in chocolate brown and mirror to bring in the light and negate the dark chocolate.

    This machiavellan scheme allowed me to bring in all the elements that go with deep chocolate but that change according to the girl's whims (we began with a deep to vivid fuschia colour on the bed spread, shades and accents - achieved by a bit of creative spray painting, and sheets in the sales section of a store). Sure enough a year later, she was tired, so we changed the accents to vivid green. (Picture below is unfinished first stage - fuschia)
    Next on the list I have planned is a lovely sea blue.

    The point is that the usual white is boring but the dark chocolate provides panels of drama (and zones on which to hang posters/frames etc). Her bedhead was also made in cream with removable buttons that can be changed according to whim!

    I would ask her to gather some ideas to show you. At least pick 1 or 2 colors that she would like to be used in the bedroom.

    Check out Pottery Barn Teens, and Restoration Hardware for ideas. Often you can take their ideas and adapt them to work in your home. At 14 she is going to want something that will last through the rest of High School. So lean more towards adult patterns rather than kid stuff.
