Hoping for paint colour suggestions

Just looking for suggestions on a wall colour that would match the new bedspread I just purchased? (I find the wall colour in the picture is nice, but not quite what I am looking for)
Not sure what would look best though, but I know I want something warm, homey and gender neutral!
Any ideas would be appreciated :-)

Good luck, what may look good to you may not look good to someone else.
Try going on some of the major paint companys web site. A few have a feature where you can take a picture of anything you want and change the colors on screen.
PS I love the look of what you have now, but ha what do I know I'm just a guy.
Any guy I know could care less as long as your happy.

Color Palette

The gray and black is really more of a cool color so it may be difficult to create a warm color palette. However, you could try using something like this:


or you could go with orange and gray like is seen here:

To warm up the black and gray, you will need to add a warmer and brighter color like gold or yellow tones. You could also use purple or red, but the purple wouldn't be very gender neutral.

The bedspread in the picture looks more gray, black and white? If there is more gray than white, I would do a warm cream color that is slightly taupe. It will warm up the walls and contrast with the black. If its more white, I would go with a dark gray that is more blue tones. You don't want it to be too red or green in the grays.
