The flooring and furniture has good colours, I suggest you can go with Bay Leaf green colour. This would compliment your floor and the furniture colour. It seems the space near your bed is narrow or not quite roomy, Hence , this colour would make your room look broader and would also be the focal point of the room. Since Dark Brown wood colour of you furniture & Bay leaf green both are colours found in nature too your room would look natural as well. Moreover Bay leaf green colour adds calmness while you walk in to the room. Also, the purpose of this room is to rest and relax, hence this colour would suffice so many reasons to live with.

Thank you. Great suggestion. Would you just paint the headboard wall, or the two others beside it as well?

I think one of these all-over damask stencils, maybe in pink and a light grey, as an accent on the headboard wall would be stunning http://www.cuttingedgestencils.com/stencils-damask-stencil-walls.html

I also am in love with the Kim Miles Ginkgo stencil ... someday I'll find a place for this one in my house http://www.cuttingedgestencils.com/kim-myles.html

I also really like the idea of a stenciled accent wall! Check out Royal Design Studios online. They have everything from organic patterns to geometric.

Hi, Fvallani. I suggest, you only paint the headboard wall. As I have mentioned earlier this would make the space look more broader. If you paint the other walls besides, it would look clumsy and would make the space narrower.

Also, if possible install a nice dark brown framed painting on the headboard wall above your bed..it would add elegance to the space and gives a finishing touch to the wall and the space.

Hi fvallani. I think a mixture of wide and narrow horizontal stripes here would look great -
Ideabook: Horizontal Stripes: Bold, Beautiful and Easier Than You Think · See Ideabook
. You could pick out colors from the bedspread, or pick out one color from the bedspread and include the existing wall color, a color that is a few shades darker, and a white for a more subtle effect.

I suggest changing the bedspread to a lighter/creamy color to brighten up the area.

I think you can use some art on those walls. I'm an artist and I have hundreds of configurations of canvas prints and originals that you can choose from: https://www.etsy.com/shop/katshoa Many sizes are not listed so if interested, ask me.

Good luck!

Thank you everyone for your suggestions. I will post a photo once it is complete. If anyone has any cheap art solutions, please let me know. This is my first place and looking to spend less than 100 on an art piece. Bed spread is a white with a greyish stripe - this bed is going to be removed.

Depends on bedding and art decor.
Sage green is always soothing and can easily fit into many color schemes with minor accent pillows, or artwork.

Orange spice, not to be confused with old spice ;), gives a bold exciting feel that shows well with white trim, bedding, and grey walls.

Depends on your personality.....find rooms on here you like, and make it your own.

I found this online by chance. Maybe it will help.
