Need help with paint colors - ASAP

Michelle MosserNovember 28, 2012
Guest room - Black and off white bedding- currently walls are BM Owl Gray. Should I leave it and add color with pillows or change wall color? If so, what color? Hallway is BM Chestertown Buff

Thanks!

I like the lime green for a wall color.

BLACK, WHITE AND YELLOW MAKE A NICE COLOR SCHEME.

I love yellows and find them very user friendly to live with. If you have already used a lot of color in the rest of your house I would change my opinion and do a more neutral shade of some grey. The room is a part of the bigger context of the color story of your home....

Any green paint suggestions? BM or Sherwin Williams colors?

I liek the gray owl you have on the walls. With black and white, you can have any accent color you want or just stay with black and white.

I like the wall color. Why don't you find some kind of art for the wall and pick a color from the art for your pillows/accent

I like the gray owl, also. I'd think about accenting with the lime green or chartreuse. As houssaon mentioned, it's a simple matter to swap out pillows if you want a change. Repainting is a lot more involved.

Like others, I like the colour you have on your walls now. We have Farrow & Ball Pavilion Grey, that looks exactly the same. We are combining it with aubergine, purple and steal grey colours for bedcovers. Aubergine looks really great with it.

Or, you can go pretty snazzy with brush silver look with hint of ice color. blue, green, pink, lavender, red, orange, anything with a bit of personality. I'll post you a few pics.

first one: subdued

I think once you know what accent color(s) you really like, accessorizing will come easier. Not sure you need to paint. I think a headboard would work very well as way into your accents.

hint: type in black into search parameter after you hit: photos, style (tradtional, modern, etc ), then location (bedroom), might help. You can go through all the styles to find what color accents to black that speak your language. :=)

What about a beautiful Metallic Pewter or Silver with a small chandelier & French Provincial White or Black, bedside table. Love your choice of Linen.

The aqua walls in this pretty bedroom add warmth to the black and white bedding for a soothing look.

I would keep the grey walls, and would accent in teal and yellow. Add fun pillows and art to really make the room "pop"

I also have black and white bedding, and just chose Sherwin Williams' Koi Pond for the walls. SW7727. It looks grey on my monitor, but is actually a muted green.

If you want a brighter green go with Vienna green: http://www.benjaminmoore.com/en-us/paint-color/viennagreen

Something a little more subtle: http://www.benjaminmoore.com/en-us/paint-color/centralpark

Or why not go for a grey that has life to it? Something like this: http://www.benjaminmoore.com/en-us/paint-color/secret

Hope you will post updates. I know it is going to be a gorgeous guest room.

I've posted your gray owl and next to it is the revere pewter. If you are wanting more gray I would highly recommend the additional warmth and nice contrast to your black that would be provided with some gray "tweaking" in the manner of the revere pewter.

pick some decorator items before you choose a paint color. You probably have some ideas on color, so go search for some great pictures etc and pull the color from there.

I would go with a bright cheery yellow on the walls and then add yellow accents around the room.

Hi---I would accent with a chartreuse hue and deepen the walls with a putty-ash gray color... Good Luck![houzz=
