The bed frame is a knotted pine and the head of the bed will be against the painted wall. So the question is would you paint the wall Chocolate brown or pale blue?

  • Chocolate brown. The headboard and linens will really pop against it.

  • I'm sorry. I don't like feature walls. I would rather paint a color and then use the other color as accent pieces, paintings/art that reflect it and such. Now, I like both colors you mentioned. I would paint all the walls blue with the accents in the brown to draw it out.

  • chocolate brown

  • if you paint it brown, you can change the accent colors without changing the wall colors. I had this dilemma and learned that the task of painting is tougher than replacing a beds comforter set. Gives you a bit more freedom to change in the future, so yes I would go with the brown.
