How about a gray? Would a color like the one in this picture work?

Do you still want to keep your existing bed cover and rug? If not I'd find a new rug and cover that I really like and choose a colour from the new fabrics and go from there. If you still want to keep your soft furnishings I like the previous suggestion of grey and perhaps you could get some accent cushions and a throw with your room colours for cohesion.

Let the bedding guide your color choice - perhaps the creamy color and then the red and black for accents.

This is as close to Ivoire as I could get. And Carla, I'm a very quiet painter so you didn't even notice when I sneaked into your house, moved the furniture, repainted the walls, and changed the bedding. Four times! I'm good.

When I'm considering buying something I ask myself "is this the best bedspread, table, etc that I can get for what I'm willing to spend?" Not loving the idea of a plaid bedspread.

We put the desk together to see what it would look like...what do you think? I definitely think new bedding is needed! Thanks for all your comments!

The plaid is very masculine and with the black furniture, doesn't have the bedroomy feel.

Every time I look at this fireplace, the walls tell me they want to be green.

Green is lovely but that is the color of the bathroom right next to the bedroom!

I also have green in my bedroom...would it be too much to do spare room in green?

I think Sherwin Williams Light French Gray 0055 would look awesome especially with that nice gray stacked stone.
