What color to paint bedroom walls.

I have gold drapes in our bedroom and some leftover light blue paint. I'm wondering if the blue walls would go with the gold drapes or should I think of another color to paint the master bedroom. It's on the dark side.

    I think the blue and gold would look great, as long as you do something to tie the colors together with your bedding...and add a small touch of black with accessories

    Thanks for the info. I really appreciate it. Would you do blue or gold for the bedding. I also have black and white toile valances for the summer.

    I agree with LaJean on painting the bedroom blue~as long as the blue isn't too dark. for the bedspread I would try to find one in multi colors of blue, white, black, gold and maybe even a little red~ check online for multi colored bedspreads and see if you can't find one that would please you and a store you can purchase it at~

    Thanks, the blue paint is a very light blue and I do have a yellow/gold quilt with all the colors you mentioned!!! I also have a red/maroon throw for the bed too. The gold drapes have a hint of maroon in them. I'm excited about starting our bedroom project after your help. Thanks again.

    Find some fabric with both colors to pull it all together for your accessories,window treatments and bedding.Start with the bedding first.Steinmart has great choices in bedding

    Thank you so much for the info. I'll have to find a Steinmart near me. It's hard finding bedding in Wal-Mart or K-Mart.

    If you can't find the bedding you like locally, try Amazon.com or Wayfair.com.

    Thanks for the info. I looked on Overstock.com too. Think I may have found something, red with gold paisley.
  • I think it depends on what else is in the room. Do you have a rug, duvet cover or chair that can tie the two colors together?

    Actually, I don't. Our furniture is dark, we do have a tan down comforter we used at times. And our carpeting is a charcoal grey.

    Maroon and grey go very well together! Please post pictures if you can, Alice. I'm sure that we would all love to see the bedroom after you finish!

      @Sharon La Tour I have decided to use a paint color called "Magic Mist" by Valspar, it's a greyish lavender and should go well with my gold drapes and shades of maroon quilt. I have grey carpeting too. I'll try and post pictures. Still not sure how to do that but I'll see what happens. Thanks again for all of everyones help.

    Light blue and gold remind me of French design... you can use some distressed furniture...I think it would be beautiful and relaxing.
