What color should I paint my room?

ADVICE

        

Reader’s question

"I would like to paint my bedroom and I need your help. I am 23 years old and my bedroom has brown furniture. One wall has a large patio door while the closet is along the opposite one; consequently the painting surface is relatively small. The bed is against the third wall and the wall opposite the bed houses the desk. I would like a two-tone color scheme and I wondered if you could recommend some color combinations. Thank you in advance."

Our recommendation

Colors blending with brown furniture and comfort for a young adult's bedroom rooms are blue and its shades: air force blue, royal blue, navy blue, light blue. Moreover, colors harmoniously combined with blue shades are light gray, elephant gray, mushroom gray, camel color and light tan color.

The right duotone selection depends upon the size of the room and the shades of the other elements, such as curtains, bedspread, and carpet. Also, the choice of bright or light tone in the color scheme depends on the atmosphere you would like to create in the room.
