What color should I use for the wall behind the bed?

ADVICE

Reader's question:

"The headboard of the bed is grey-beige leather. The wall behind the bed is white and this particular color combination doesn't seem to match well. So, what color could I use for the wall behind the bed in order to accentuate the bed". 

Our recommendations:

You can use the effect of toning contrast and use two tones of the same color.

toning_contrast_grey

The headboard of the bed is grey-beige. Therefore, you can use for the wall (behind the bed) a darker grey tone (one or more tones darker). You can leave the rest of the walls in white color or paint them with a lighter grey tone.
