HELP! Need a neutral,airy paint color for bedroom with cream furn

peachypinksunsetMarch 4, 2014

Help! We need to find a paint color within the next few days! We have cream vintage bedroom furniture and need a new paint color.

Must be:
1. Benjamin Moore preferred
2. Airy and calming
3. Neutral so I can put a red flannel comforter set to create a lodge feel or pastel comforter for shabby chic feel; basically want to be able to put ANY comforter set with this paint
4. Would like it to contrast against the cream colored furniture

Thank you!!!!!!!

This is probably better in the Home Decorating Forum, but I will throw in my $.02. I have a room with cream furniture too and my target color is going to be Harvest Time or Honeymoon, both of which are goldish-beige.
Harvest Time:

Honeymoon:

(I think the Harvest Time thumbnail is not accurate. Looks too peachy in that link. It is not really peachy at all. I've used it before in a hallway)

The only other neutral category is more beige, less gold. I recently did a bathroom in BM Kangaroo, which went great with the cream vanity.

These of course are just starting points.. zillions of shades lighter and darker to choose from. Here's a lighter beige that would contrast with cream furniture.

Almond bisque:

The gold-beige colors would work well with pastels green and blue, but probably not pinks. The beiges would work well with red.

To be more non-commital to future choices of other elements in the room, I would lean towards lighter shades. The lighter the color, the more versatile usually. I personally prefer mid-tone colors for more impact.

But if you can, it is best to have the overall color scheme settled before painting. Reds vs. pastels are very different visions.
