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 "discover" a lot of colors by accident. I have no wish to claim them, i just can't post a palette or pattern without naming it. So i name it something stupid and move on. I have seen snide comments about "having an agenda" and wondered what it was about. Some people have some growing up to do. We don't "discover" colors, they have been here since time immemorial and will be here long after we're gone.

All in all there is nothing I can legitimately do as in action about this opinion of an issue. :)

So share your thoughts but let's keep it that everyone can view this quite different from many angles. The system isn't limited to letting someone spend hours clicking through to claim colors. While that's silly... there are people who have some kind of rhyme or reason to doing this action as an actual activity here on CL. be that they feel they want to claim and own and have people ask permission to re-name a color - for some reason or another.

People are all so different in our makeup and some people choose to run their CL profile in ways to make up for things they may lack or have too much of in their real lives. I'm not saying this is wrong or out of place but eventually this conversation is just going to go round and round and round an soon enough finger stabbing and name dropping and assumptions of perceptions and tangled words.

So try to leave it fairly laid out there as a point that was simply made... :)

I / we have no power to make any changes to rules, regulations or how the site functions. :)

Have a great weekend! ~ molly

On the right of any palette or pattern you make, there is a box that says "grab this badge code". Select all on that box and save it to your clipboard or to notepad. Click on their name to go to their home page, scroll to the bottom, type in a thank you comment and paste the badge code (don't try to use the buttons at the top of the text box) copy and paste your badge and click "post comment"

when I love something a message appears in my profile from the creator. but I have no clue how they are putting the relevant palette or whatever inside that thank you message.
so this is my clueless attempt to acknowledge peops that love my creations.
