Hello. I'm hoping you wonderfully creative people can help me out. I am in the process of updating my master bedroom. It is a small room, only 12 x 15, and dark, with only northeast facing windows with big trees outdoors.
I wanted a soft grey beige for the walls and crisp white trim for a peaceful look and to not compete with some lovely colorful artwork. We also decided to demolish the hideous brass and mirror reach in closets and put in a wall of ikea closet systems. Here is my dilemma. The ikea closets we chose are called bergsbo pax and while they look nice and white in the huge warehouse store, when I got them home I found that the doors are more of an ivory color than true white. The closest color I can find is Martha Stewart Talc.
I had planned to paint the room BM Clay Beige. It is not too dark and looks great against bright white trim. But against the ikea cabinets there doesn't seem to be enough contrast. I'm afraid to go too dark on the walls because the room gets so little natural light.
Do I try to match the trim paint to the ikea doors or ignore the door color and stick to the bright white that is already on the ensuite bathroom trim and the door to the room? Do I go for a different greige for the walls for more contrast? I do want to stay neutral on the walls. I'm attaching some links so you can see what I'm thinking of.
