Light pink or light peach (which is even more soft) would look good.

painting a room

It was the thought as if she had a litle window in a lightrt colour would help.
And the colour sceams that I used here were applyed with a roler.
We also have horse pictures on the wall here and photos of our ponys thay are on the pink walls.
On the picture wall is a glass display case with roleing stock and diesle and electric locomotives on display.
The curtens are white with squigaley colourd lines comeing down brown buff (light creme and silver.
I had made a unit that sits over the fire place but we have no fire now as we moved apartments we are next door now its made of pine wood and haves shelfs for cds and dvds and the tv stands on the mantle piece.
And so does the phone.
There is a hifi table for the hifi dvd player and cd and dvd racks as well and a sofa bed for frends who sleep over.
A small coffie tabel and a computer table as well and a chesterd draws as well.
I know this is a big room but I thought the colour scheame mite help.
Many thanks for the reply.
Michael.

I really like that all of your decorations have a grey theme. I personally think that a light grey of some sort would make the darker frames and comforter "pop". It would be very classy looking, and I really like that. I always have tried to steer clear of colorful rooms, generally because I have a tendency to get tired of the color I picked.
The great thing about painting a very neutral color is that you can do accents, like artwork, flowers, pillows, rugs, lamps, and etc. that add color, yet are easy to replace.

I agree with the idea of doing a grey color. You could get a pink or purple wall decal of a running horse or something (easy to replace and really cool) you can find a bunch on eBay.com.

I like that shade of purple that you posted, I think it would look really nice with the black and gray stuff you've got.


I've always LOVED the look of a room with a pretty gray paint and white trim. Not a really light or dark gray, but a medium gray, with a bit of a purple hue to it. Then you can spice it up a little with colored accent pillows, art, etc.
I'd strongly advise against painting the walls any bright colors or anything you're not sure you'll still love down the line (as you've learned with the electric blue), it's much easier to switch out a few pillows and blankets, if you get tired of the color than to repaint the room.


If you want to make the room appear larger, go with a lighter color. Dark paint will make it seem smaller.

Definitely go with a cool color. That purple you posted would be nice, and so would a nice soft pastel blue, or a light grey, nothing bright or active.
Bedrooms are best when done in cool colors, these colors promote relaxation and are much easier to fall asleep in.
Bright, warm colors and just bright colors in general scream "activity".
If you have a smaller bedroom make sure to avoid dark colors at all costs, these will make your bedroom appear even smaller and then the space will feel cramped or claustrophobic. A lighter color on the other hand will make the space feel very open, light, and more roomy.
