Question
Hello. My wife and I just purchased a condo and want to find the perfect color for our bedroom. The room size is 12"x11". Our beedroom set is dark cherry. This website is to our bedroom set.

I would like to know what color to paint the walls to get a calm, warm, and comfortable feel to the room.

We are not opposed to something a little different.

Also how do you feel about painting the ceiling a gloss white?

Thank you,
Frank

Answer
Thanks for writing and for your question.  I'd use either a taupe or a sage green.  Either of the two will create the comfortable feeling you want and coordinate nicely with your furniture.  And yes - you can certainly paint your ceiling in a gloss white.

Regards,
Jenny

Visit my web site at: http://www.jennifertaylorwojcik.com Decor: I've written about it, planned it, designed it and colored it, and I've never stopped loving it. It's not what you spend, or who made it, it's how it makes you feel.

Experience

College, advertising, public relations, marketing, free-lance writing and a plethora of creative endeavors have led me here. As an entrepreneur in decorative product design, I learned the hard way how tough it can be to be in business for yourself. A stint at a law firm taught me humility too. Some three thousand questions ago, I wondered if I could really help. Obviously, I'm still here and still taking your questions. God Bless You!
