Your idea of the bird and birdcage wallpaper sounds lovely for your bedroom to share with your sister. I'm not sure what size of a window you have in the room but if it is on the north or east side you may need to keep the other walls lighter in colour and use an eggshell finish. Since the wallpaper is your inspiration piece and I can't see the colours, you should try to match colours if you can from the paper. Duck blue could be used in the curtains, and shams/ cushions, if it's too dark to use as the wall colour. White or cream can be used on the trim but check your wallpaper colours. Why not purchase a vintage bird cage and paint it out in your electric blue or red to add some fun. I'm sure it will all come together nicely. Ask for some final advice before you buy the paint and perhaps get a sample first to try on the wall or a large paint sample. Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams paints have these. I wish you lots of fun with your project!

Very helpful site for those who needs help with the colors.


Hope everything went well! Darkness wouldn't necessarily be an issue; it depends on your windows and lighting too.
