wall color for small MB

utzybuzzyJanuary 2, 2013
Have teak furniture, carpet with squares of light and darker sage, lavender and off white. Like bright, clean and more minimalist, but also like color and no white or light bed linens, dogs!

Pick a color from your carpet that is the least prevalent. Do 3 walls in this color and a bolder color from the carpet behind the bed. Do the bed in a neutral pet friendly color that coordinates with the rest.

SW's 0066 Cascade Green would be pretty.

Orange is a traditional color to go with teak. I think anything in the red or yellow family works as well.

With pets, I'd find a patterned bed covering with rust, brown, and sage. For the walls I'd bring in the sage of your carpet. I think green is soothing for a bedroom. Gray is another great color and can be found with a hint of green or blue, depending on your preference.

I'm attaching a couple of pictures with the colors I would use. It might inspire you towards finding your total color palette.

Thank you for all your help. I was thinking of a sage green or light blue, but the green makes more sense. I never thought of gray because I thought it was too dark. So off to the paint store for samples (yellow and orange too). Great ideas about the bed. I was totally confused about that. Hope I can find what I want. One question. If I do an accent color what would be a good one?

Your accent color will either guide your color scheme or come from the final fabric and paint choices. You have a lime green lamp, is that a favorite color? If yes, finding fabric and paint that works with that color would be best.

Personally, I would consider the bedding I found at Pottery Barn with accents in the blue or yellow. This would be very soothing against a blue-gray wall and with the teak furniture.

Accents in black, cream, or browns will go with just about everything.

By the by, unless you get very lucky, it's probably best to find your fabrics, then the paint, then the accents. Once you have the samples from the paint store you'll have a better idea of what you want to live with and how it works with the teak and your carpet and you'll have a starting point to find your bedding.

Once you've found the bedding, take a sham into the paint store, choose several colors that work with it then take them home to see what pleases you with the bedding, carpet, and teak furniture.

I hope you post the final outcome. And I hope you enjoy the creative process of pulling together the colors.
