What color of paint would I use for my small bedroom with light and dark green carpet? I already have the walls green, but I want something different.

What about a cream or burgundy, depends on how much emphasis you want. (08/19/2010)
How about a coral or yellow? I love bright colors. I would suggest in order to choose the right shade of whatever color you use, you may want to get a quart or I've heard of some stores having sample sized cans. Then paint a poster board and put it on different walls at different times of the day. The shade can make a world of difference. There are so many shades of every color. It's difficult for me to find the right one from those little strips.
Another idea is to pick up several of the paint strips (like 6 or so) that you think you might want. Tape them to each other and on the wall. We did this for a door we painted to find the exact shade to use before buying a quart. Good luck! (08/21/2010)
