What color would be good for an accent wall in a very small bedroom?
Pink can be difficult because it will look good on a swatch and in the can, but once you put it on it can look like pepto bismal! I think a soft light purple would be pretty or perhaps a soft green. I guess it all depends on the rest of your decor and furniture. On the whole color scheme thing – I think purple/blue/or green would be better any way because they are calming, which is what you’d want in a bedroom. Pink is a version of red, which tends to be more aggressive. As far as which wall to choose….again, it would depend on whatever you have in the room. I would say either the wall that is directly across from you when you walk into the room or the exact opposite of that. (Just a gut feeling without actually seeing the room).
play around with the Sherwin Williams color visualizer to find something that you like. It is the best paint visualizer on the web, imho. I like how their color palette is laid out, I like that you can search by color family & color name, the “painted” rooms look the most realistic, and it suggests coordinating color schemes. You can literally spend hours: http://sherlink.sherwin.com/swapp/color_… I suggest looking at a color called “awesome violet” (# 6815). Nice & airy, it won’t look so out of place next to the white walls. I would either paint the wall behind your headboard or the wall across from the doorway.
