Inspired by Kristin, I am painting a guest bedroom pink/orange. I wanted a little bit of depth like in the picture here, subtle and not obvious like most faux painted walls. I already had antique white walls. I did one coat with the orange and saw the lighter color bleeding through ever so slightly. Exactly the effect I wanted. It gives the look as if you have spent hours glazing the walls or got it done spending a lot of money. It was easy. I don't know how long lasting this is but I redecorate every few years so no big deal.

A pink-orange wall is an appropriate backdrop for another piece of Nicholas’ art. Original wooden beams balance the saturated color.
Vanessa Brunner added this to No Neutral Ground? Why the Color Camps Are So Opinionated
Considering color but feeling nervous? Start small. "Area size sometimes has an effect on committing to a strong color," says Harrington. "We tend to shy away from large areas of color, even if it is easy to change or not expensive to do." Try using color in a small space that you don't use that often — like a powder room or even the inside of a closet. "This can be a jumping-off point for braver attempts in other rooms," says Woodman. Or find a color you like and tone down its intensity by asking your local paint shop to add some gray, suggests Wangenheim. This can make it both a color and a neutral. "Is it possible for color to go awry? Absolutely," says Woodman. "I like to think, however, that there is no wrong color, just color used wrong."Next: What to do if you live with a colorphobe | Vote: Color vs. NeutralsMore help from the Houzz resource library:Houzz guides to using neutralsHouzz guides to using bold colors

Could we expose the beams like this?
vermontdsj added this to Oliver's colors
maybe not so restful a color, but one red/orange wall?
