    What colors do you like best. You have a lot of choices. Pick a fav color and than look mat all the hues . I have all Knotty pine furn also. Log Bed & dresser, night stand, and Armoire. I like greens . SO I picked a Silvery pine shade. It is not real dark, it is just right. The furn stands out. Plus if you like pine furn, than green is the natural choice. I would say no pastels . powder blues or pinks. But how many windows do you have , How much light. If you need it brighter. Try a soft morning sunlight.?? also what color is your floor. all this matters.

    Primary colors are always a good choice to use with neutral rustic type pine. If you don't care for the brights of the primary, adjust the hue up a bit into the jewel tones. Same colors, but more "adult." Burgandy instead of red, forest in place of grass, cobalt blue, or a darker stone ground mustard. If your room is small, I would use a "leather" or "suede" color on the walls; sort of a tan or sandy tone. Then use your "colors" in your quilt and window treatments.

    Thank you both for your replies. I think I might go for the forest green. my room is quite small but very bright as I have a large window. The floors are stained floorboards as was cheaper than carpet so hopefully the green will match up well

    Hi Liz, I agree with Cindie, you should choose a colour you like. Your furniture is neutral so you could use almost any colour. If you choose a dark colour for your room it will be cozy, if you choose a light colour it will be light and airy. I prefer lighter shades of blue and green. These are really peaceful colours. If you find some colours you like purchase those little pots so you can bring them home and try them on your wall before you make your final decision. Look at the colour in the daylight (sunshine), daylight (no sun) and at night. The colour will look different in each light. Good luck with your painting.

    Pine can be very dark and dated-I would go with a light yellow maybe and bright bed cover and pillows-hang light draperies from the ceiling to lighten the look of the room! I just did that and love it so much! My room came alive!!

    If you wanted to go with a foresty type of green, think about painting one wall and the ceiling( if you don't have crown molding. Maybe a light mushroom color for the other 3 walls. Mirrors will help the room look bigger as will horizontal stripes. Look for accent colors opposite green on a color wheel.

    I was going to suggest green as well. I also think that smoky blue looks pretty with pine.

    I was thinking a mid to darker blue, but not navy.
