Decorating & Furniture/bedroom madness

Question
Hi, I recently moved into a new townhome. This is my first home. I went on a shopping spree and bought up all his new furniture and got it in my house before I realized it didnt really fit what I wanted. Needless to say the return policies dont allow me to return any of it at this point. The room I am most annoyed with is the bedroom suit. I got a very dark wood leather back headboard and matching dresser. The carpet is light beige and walls are the same color. I thought painting the walls would help. So I tried out behr.com, but nothing looked right. Can you give me any suggestions? Thank you

Answer
Hi Valerie,
I would choose to paint the walls either a blue or green color. Here are some images that may inspire you. If you would like further assistance please send images to rachelmallon@gmail.com.
