Q:I have a 9 year old son who wants his room decorated in orange and purple. I have tried to find bedding with this color scheme and everything looks too girly. Any idea on how to pull an orange and purple room off for a boy?

Editor: Oof. Well, we're thinking stripes, plaids or solids for bedding. (The sheets pictured are from Garnet Hill). Readers, help Terra out - what ideas do you have?
