Plum coloured carpet...pine furniture...new paint colour?

My bedroom has plum coloured carpet, solid pine furniture (my husband would kill me if I painted it) and currently green walls (which he hates). I would really love to paint the room but am stuck on a paint colour (although I know for sure it won't be pink or lavender). Suggestions anyone?

I think a soft gray would be soooo pretty in this room. It would work with the carpet and your furniture. Looks like it might work with the art, too???

Maybe when you are done painting and putting things back, try the bed on the wall to the left of it and let that beautiful window be open. It can truly be the highlight of this room!

Greige walls, w taupe window treatment will give a calming counterpoint to the plum: http://www.comparestoreprices.co.uk/images/be/belfield-furnishings-ltd-double-caprice-bedstead--plum.jpg

Definitely move the bed (maybe opposite the window?)

I agree, gray/greige is the way to go, how about number 8?
