Hello Everyone!
 I just joined as Im stuck and need some help please! I'm a first time decorating. Just doing my bedroom. After 3 weeks and 3 tries with other colours of paint I finally chose and painted the accent wall in my bedroom: its dark grey: "Till death do us part" from PARA paints. (sorry cant find it on their website). My furniture is medium brown from Urban Barn:     My bedding is white with dark pink accents. I also have a lot of white/ linnen accents, and white closet doors. I have some black frames with white inlays that I intend to hang on the walls. My style is a bit eclectic: I love rattan baskets, old photo frames and driftwood.
My question is: what colour should I paint the remaining 3 walls? I want the room to feel warm and inviting but also crisp and airy I'm afraid to paint it light grey as it will make it feel cold and industrial. The accent wall colour has some brown and purple in it depending on the light (the bedroom faces west).
I would really appreciate some suggestions, thank you! Even something crazy - im willing to be brave :)

Hello Paulusia,Check out our SICO photo gallery. It features several palettes chosen by some of Canada's top designers, and many of them feature grey as an accent colour paired with everything from pink to pale lavender. can also enter to win a set of brass bowls while you're there!If you want a really dramatic look, paint the other three walls a warm white. Here are some of Lynda's favourite white colours: this helps!Jennifer
