All my friends call me for decorating advice..hehe
I think it would be pretty if you painted it gold, not a metalic gold, but a burnt butter yellowish gold. ( the trim a shade lighter or darker) and adapt the oriental theme. Those big oriental fans are inexpensive, and often have the 3 colors mentioned here, black, magenta and gold. Add a throw pillow or two with those three colors to incorporate the gold color onto your bed.

Have you considered a 'warm' grey for the walls? Or possibly a creamy colour (not white, but some form of antique white). If you went this way then black for the moldings might look good.

I might be inclined to paint with a warm grey might produce a somewhat modern, or masculine look, but if that wasn't your intent you could 'accessorize' that look away. If you went with the grey, or even a creamy colour (not white, more antiqued) then black molding might look spectacular. Kind of daring I'd say....but it's just paint afterall; it can always be reversed!!!

I think a warm grey will be friendly with the black bedspread, but I find that I would like to see a nice offsetting tan on the walls. Some pictures with black frames and crisp white matte inside them would look sharp.


I'd paint the trim white with some black and white or just white curtains to bring it all together. (Painting trim black scares me.) I'm thinking sharp, crisp and linear feel. Hope this idea helps!

In this setting I would use a light green of almost any, sage, etc., just as long as it is light. The windows would be nice in white as it is easy to match white with anything. I would tend to use lace curtains, again in white, to bring a taste of France or Italy in the room...some black & white pictures on the walls & a nice Wicker mirror would be very beautiful as well.
Good luck! Patsy

I have an L-shaped living/room dining room and I just painted one accent wall in the dining room and an adjoining accent wall in the living room a really deep Victorian Red. I already bought grey paint for the remaining walls but now feel that the grey is too dark.


My doors and trim will be a very pale Vanilla Ice Cream colour (very light with a hint of creamy yellow. Can you plese help me with how I can lighten up the grey paint before I put it on my walls. Thank you.

I just recently remodeled my son's house and painted the bedrooms a Sleek Silver, which is like a light shade of gray. We had Silver Mist carpet installed and it turned out beautiful. We also painted the kitchen a Chromium color (another light gray color) and put up a pretty border with the same color and black marble diamond shapes in it. It turned out beautiful with the new black appliances and black marble countertops. I personally like black and silver or light gray together and they seem to go with everything. I would paint the room a light shade of gray and put up a pretty matching border that bring out the other colors you are working with.
