Chest of drawers - new color ideas

August 13, 2014 in Design Dilemma
I'm remodeling my bedroom, walls will be dark purple and white ceiling and trims. I'm thinking to paint this chest of drawers, is rather ugly and dated, maybe dark chocolate color or in a contrasting color, or maybe could work like an accent piece?, but don't know what color, need new drawer pulls, too.

I have another chest of drawers in chocolate color (second image) and matching armoire.

thanks!

Yes, sage green could work, may be a very pale shade, I love turquoise color but in this case will be too much, too strong, the room is small.
I was thinking in maybe a pale gray blue too.

Grey-Blue would be nice or Navy Royal with a hint of cornflower blue but I would not paint the walls Purple. Walls could be a dove grey or even deep royal like the room Tommy Smythe did- search on Pinterest for his projects :)

I have checked Tommy Smythe's designs on Pinterest, really nice rooms!, but I'm really want dark purple for the walls, I want something dramatic, maybe over the top.

And yes, same dark navy color could works too.

I would recommend doing a feature wall in a eggplant-purple then. Or use Benjamin Moore's tool to see what the room would look like if you do the whole room. Good luck - post a pic of the finished product. Love your photo of the blue chest!

I'm planning to paint all the walls in a really dark purple, I will post the finish room when is ready, still a lot to do!, the walls were in bad shape, need install insulation in one wall, too.. a LOT to do (but a lot of work done too). I will check the Benjamin Moore tool, never have used it.

Yes, I love that blue chest, I think I will paint mine in the same color, still can't decide between this dark blue or a blue gray, will see.
