    Behr's grass cloth green is a very calm and relaxing color. Used it with a blend of wood tones: bamboo flooring, walnut, and oak trim and furniture. Brought in splashes of color w/ pillows and wall decor. It made for a wonderfully recupritive and

    Personally I like relaxing massages. I would use a soft shade of blue with soft light. You could use stronger colors for accents like vases or candles (nice smelling ones). I always feel more relaxed with blue walls and I would steer aways from reds,

    @Kevin (KMS). Kevin, like me, you were 7 or 8 a long time ago. The population of one of those modern floating cities is up to 5,000 plus...:)

    Benjamin Moore will match any color even if it is in a magazine. Since the room will be dimmed a pale blue or a buttercup yellow might just do the trick.. Browns are so last years fad!

    Probably stick with neutral colors like tans, creams, taupe, seafoam green, sage green, pale blue. I would however stay away from yellows though that might be too energizing.

    I would go with a pale green, it exudes the calmness and peace of nature.

    Please tell us -what material is on the floor, and is there any furniture in the room that must stay? I would love to help but we really need more information to be helpful. The color on the walls should be part of a completely planned design, not a

    The first thing I would consider is what is your mothers favorite color....She is the one that will be in the room the most.

    Second does the room have windows or is it an interior room that only gets light from the lamps in the room.
