Question

bedroom neutral paint suggestions?


Hi I am new to the community.

I am about to take a trip to Home Depot in an hour so fast replies would be great.

I am redoing my room; walls and new furniture. I plan on getting dark furniture, most likely dark brown, not black. I would like to paint my walls a neutral color. Preferably by the company BEHR. I was looking at a few pics online of the colors Raffia Cream, Cracked wheat, sandstone cove etc. I would like to have a beige color, not too yellow-toned, peach-toned or grey-toned. Suggestions as to what certain BEHR neutral colors look best with dark furniture would be great.
Also, i would like to pop a few vibrant blue/turquoise/electric blue'ish colored accent pieces into the room such as vases to sit on top of dresser, pillows etc. So please help me out & give me some beige BEHR neutrals that would look good with dark furniture and blue-toned accents. Please try to stray away from suggesting colors that are too light/close to white.
Pics would be helpful.

Thankyou!

Welcome, Jennifer. : ) I'm too late to help since you have prob hit HD, but I do want to point out the home decorating thread for you. There are more of this type question there and more technical "how to" questions here usually.

If you haven't bought the paint, I'd post there if you haven't.

Very compassionate and diplomatic Canoes. I figured, given the manner in which she asked, and the paint she was going to buy, that she'd get fairly roughed up here, so I'd put her out of her misery early on. Nice touch. I used to be that way, things have changed.
