Paint color suggestion

Posted by autiemom (My Page) on

Hi everyone. I am looking for suggestions to paint our bedroom. We're leaning toward a spa blue, but haven't found a great one yet. So, we're open to suggestions! Our bedding is the Eddie Bauer Batik (I think I attached a link below, but I'm not too savvy with technology! :))

Our bedroom has harwood floors and is cozy (or not too big, depending on how you are looking at it). We only have one window in the bedroom so we are leaning toward light colors. We're going with white trim and molding. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated! We've tried some blues out, and beiges too, but haven't hit on the right color. Thanks so much!!

RE: Paint color suggestion

Much depends on the direction the window faces and whether you ever open the curtains. I would try for the right shade for the room, not just for your bedding - your bedding may change. But I would lean toward a warm colour for a bedroom to enhance the cozy feel, perhaps? Maybe a nice yellow - we painted one north-facing bedroom a warm yellow (BM Buttermilk). The other bedroom, which gets light from more than one side, is a light clear lilac. Some suggestions about dark rooms, in case yours is dark, are at the link below.
