I'm trying to decide between a bold navy blue (I'll attach a picture of an example colour) and an bold dark purple. My bedroom is pretty big but also quite dark. It's painted a pale grey right now but I actually feel that the light colour makes the room look more drab. I believe that dark colours are more likely to liven up a dark space.
I'm planning to find a small dresser for the right side of the bed by the window and paint it a distressed Chinese red, unless I found a really nice darker beat-up wood one in which case I think I'd leave it as is.
