need advice on color to paint bedroom furniture

carol0512April 29, 2012

Hi, I have trouble deciding on colors that work together.

I have hand sanded and primed a French provencal dresser and chest or drawers. This is an adult female's room and I am stuck on what color to paint the furniture. Floor painted brownish/red (old house 1886 random pine floor that was in bad shape). 3 walls are Monet Lily (Bher paint) which is a blue/violet. One wall is Impressive Ivory (SW).I have considered:

white and thought that might be too young looking,

Beeswax yellow SW, -is dark yellow difficult to live with?

Mystic blue (behr)- ?

Mellow Coral SW ?

Thoughts and advice will be appreciated.

Curtains are white sheers and white shutters.

Thanks Carol

I think a nice fruit wood stain and some varnish would be lovely.

I think a cottage white might look good perhaps the impressive ivory or a companion to that maybe with an anitique effect.
