This sounds really nice. I would think one wall painted red would look real cool. Also,try looking in Sears,Penneys,and Target catologs. I've gotten a lot of ideas from catologs. Don't forget your son input.

 ^^^ just for inspiration... Obviously I don't expect you to put your 13 year old in a  crib ;)

I have pics but not on this computer - will try to upload later.  My oldest son has two light gray and two dark gray walls.  We tried red accents on the walls, but weren't thrilled with it.  So, we accented with other stuff - red curtains, black/gray/red comforter, red/grey jumbo pillow, etc.  It's pretty cool!

I forgot to come back to this post, and while my pictures aren't professional and 'uber-cool' like the ones above, I thought I'd show you my 12 year old son's room anyway.  We re-did it when he turned 10...and it still needs some work...

The bed and dresser walls are light silver.  The window and closet walls are dark silver.  Red accent are the curtains, the under bed curtain (which always falls down), and we *tried* red corners but it looked bad - I just noticed we didn't take all of them down for the pictures, LOL.

 My husband owns a painting company Maverick Painting. Here's a pic of a gray/black bedroom they did 

I don't recommend painting your walls red. It takes at least 3 coats and never turns out the way you want. Stick with black and gray and accessorize with red items or bedding.
