Great pictures, nice and simple notes on what you would like. Caught my eye so I posted this to our facebook (https://www.facebook.com/colourlovers?ref=hl) and twitter feed to try to get you some help. :)

Hopefully one of our lovely members passionate about interior design can help you out!

Good luck!

Thank you! I posted this on my town community board and another (none interior design) board that I am as well. not many responses on one and the first board is telling me that I need to change things with other rooms, get rid of furniture and start from scratch. I really just need some paint ideas! Lol, I like everything else in my room(s) lol.

Hello there, I think the idea of having plum for your back wall would work well as its dark but more aesthetically pleasing and can be
Complimented by lighter shades of purple(like the shelf box on the floor)or the same blue/ turquoise colour you have in the Guest room (which is
Lovely) I don't think the bathroom has to match but if you feel you want it to, I'd suggest using white and lighter shades of the same purple and blues you already have. If you're worried about yellowish tints repaint the walls with a white varnish which will bring light and reinforce the flow of brightness and continuity :) good luck I'm sure you'll make the right choice for your tastes.

Thanks! I was really thinking plum on that back wall... Plum_and_blue" />

what about the other walls though? I just feel so nervous because I have to see this room every day lmbo...if I mess up there's no just closing the door and ignoring it.

I think that colour scheme will work well :) I'd swap between white walls and purple or blue ones so the rooms aren't too dark. If you're not too confident I'd suggest doing one wall coloured/ two if you're feeling more confident and keep the others white or cream so the colour isn't too overpowering. Maybe make some sketches
With different coloured walls, then experiment and find colours you think work, you can always paint over it ;) good luck!

That's funny. I think someone with real, GOOD advice would work with what you have and what you are requesting. I think it's possible to work with the ideas you posted and your notes.

The Sherwin Williams website has a great program called "ChipIt"; you can enter a color and it will give you suggestions for color palettes. You could also enter the picture of your quilt, and it will generate the colors and coordinates also. It's really fun to use! They have an app too, which I haven't used since I don't have a smart phone, but the guys on HGTV's Kitchen Cousins use it and viewers are always writing on their Facebook wall to ask about it. Hope this helps!

A good way to also test out if you need some super visualization would be to buy about 4 pieces of poster board and get the paint your thinking in samples..... Paint them equaling how you might, the walls and set up a mini room sort of thing.....

You said some of your furniture is dark wood, my only concern would be having dark furniture/wood against a dark wall.

Last year, I found that Martha Stewards line is super helpful if you're not sure about an accent color... she has this great symbol system that matches things by hue and keeps the guess work out of it. I painted both my kids rooms with her line with accent walls and loved how it turned out. Also includes trim colors.... only problem is that her line lacks in numbers.... but sometimes it's good to be limited if it all seems too overwhelming.

It might be pretty to do a crisp white contrasting with the plumb.... but I would also repaint the wood side tables in the same / similar white and get a white headboard (or get an old white door headboard ;) OR find a third accent color to re-do the furniture with. But I'm sure also there is a way without re-doing ALL of your furniture too, which I'm all for. hah.

Awesome quilt. Keeper. That plum color's sharp, but might make the room too dark.

Love plum color.

I guess our default strategy now is ctrl+a, ctrl+c on a comment just in case we lose it without it being posted. Last week I had to re-write a comment 3 times before I learned. :P

My one wish through being patient while the bugs are worked out and the spammers run off is that management would make a short statement.

Definitely.

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.
