Colors for my new bedroom?

I'm starting my first year of College this fall, and I'm moving into our little house. I have a cute little bedroom that's about 10 feet by 10 feet, and I would love to add some color to the walls. (: However, I'm a little indecisive.

IMAGE FAIL. D: Can't figure it out. :c

oh well. here. xD http://www.colourlovers.com/palette/2267630/How_cute.

These are some colors I really like, and I'm thinking for sure about the grayish blue/navy walls. For the ceiling, I was thinking the light green, but then again, I'm still not sure.

I also want a third color for other little details and stuff, so I'm deciding between the peachish pink, the teal, or the light yellow? Maybe even a Beige. I just can't decide.

I don't want my room to look too rainbowy and colorful or childish, cause I'm moving in for College after all. I'll be there for 4 years at least so I want it to at least be colors I like.

so I don't know, what do you think would look good with the blue? Or maybe even what color would look good with the blue and the green if you think those two colors are a good choice already?

I like green and blue together. I agree you don't want too many colors on the walls. You can do a lot with your accessories to bring the other colors in. You may want to use the dark blue on only one wall or as the biggest item in the room - your bed. Or maybe you have a quilt that has all the colors which will pull it all together.


This is my bedroom palette Rise and Shine inspired from a Kleenex box. The teal is the bed - the others will be accent colors.


What is your inspiration piece?

Ooh, Rise and Shine is really pretty.

I don't have an inspiration piece though. D': I just picked colors I thought were pretty together. xD

You could've just played off blue and green by using several different shades of both.

I am all for being patient while much needed changes are made to the site, but the complete absence of communication is very disturbing.
I feel it is a lack of respect towards the community to just leave us worrying and guessing every. bloody. time.

We have sat out weeks of CL not working because of DoS-Attacks, we've experienced several (for us: surprise) shut-downs as updates were implemented, we have grappled with the buggy fallout of many of these updates - and never a comment, a warning, a heads-up, an anything from anybody in charge.

Are we not worth being informed?

And now I sit and wait to see if this comment will actually be posted. I have not been able to comment anywhere, not even my own profile, for days.

Came back after being gone for 2 years to this disappointment, Also, once again, experienced issues with Seamless Light errors. Captchas are a pain in the butt (especially when they make you click though 3 pages of pics); however, I understand the need for them.

Have you tried another browser, like Google Chrome? I just tried Firefox and BPM (basic palette maker) worked fine and BPM also worked fine with Chrome. How about Photocopa? Have you tried making palettes that way? I'm just trying to help - I know it can be frustrating.

I understand you are. We're all frustrated. :)
I seemed able to make a basic palette in IE, but some of the pages on the site (like the homepage and login) take so long to load that they occasionally just lock up and stay blank. Other ones load quickly. I don't have Chrome on this computer, - I'd have to try it later on my laptop when I can access it.

TBH, I don't think I ever used Photocopa for my palettes. It never quite did what I wanted, and 90% of my palettes aren't based off photos.

I am very pleased to see that the spam problem is being addressed and agree with Edith re being patient while these changes are taking place and also concur that some form of communication by those behind the scenes would be nice and greatly appreciated.
*Congrats to Monsef family on their new bundle of joy*

I have to admit that the lack of badges has actually been pretty nice. At times, I'm not a fan of the flood of badges on the sidebar. It's nice to not have some creations shoved in my face over and over again.
And I second Edith. I'd love to hear some news. :)
