Wall color recommendation for room without natural light?

Answered
My family room is in the basement no natural light. I feel the color now is not warm enough. I was thinking of gray, but not sure what shade, or should I go with a different color all together. Thanks (I hope the photo helps)

    Becareful when choosing grays, they can play green, blue and brown especially in a no natural light surrounding.https://www.kylieminteriors.ca/the-best-light-paint-colours-for-a-dark-room-basement/

    Rather than paint (unless you want or need to) you could try warming the space by adding accent colour - red or orange or bright yellow, whatever works best with your furniture...I would not paint grey as usually the greys are on the ‘cool’ side. If you were wanting to paint to lighten the room, you could do a darker cream/taupe/beige on the bead board and a much lighter cream on the top. I would again choose a warmer accent colour for pillows etc

    I've got some rooms like that. I'm using Home Depot's metallic paint in a color I like.

    There's WAY too much brown in this room. Paint the walls and beadboard a lighter cream color or white, paint the bench the same white color, but leave the beam and wood accents natural (the way you have them). Ramp up the turquoise accents with more throw pillows, pictures, etc. Add some overhead lighting if your budget permits.

    Lighter cream colour or pale yellow...can you pick up the yellow tone from your cushion?

    Pale yellow or sky blue would be perfect. I would skip the neutrals of Gray and Tan. Altho popular (Gray is on its way out) they aren’t ideal for a basement. Those colors would also make that beautiful wood “pop”!
