I think a grey would look awesome.

I agree grey would look great. If you want to change your bedding down the line so many colors work with grey so you wouldn’t have to re-paint the bedroom.

sage green, grey, or even a light blue would look pretty!

I’d stick with a neutral color… Grey, Brown, Cream….

Grey would look great!  Our bedroom is grey and I love it.  We did 3 walls in a really light grey and the wall the bed is on is a darker grey.

I agree with grey. Also, depending on the size of your bedroom, and how much natural light you have coming in, a nice cocoa brown might look nice. But, if your room is on the smallish side and/or doesn’t have alot of natural light coming in, it could be too dark and maybe a bit overwhelming. Also, take into account what type and color of flooring you have. Carpet or wood floors?

My favorite designer is Candice Olson, and this is one of her rooms. I posted this pic b/c I think the color combo is SO pretty!! With the deep purble, and pale greens and tans. And although the painting is purple and bedding is shades of green & tan, you could invert 🙂

Our bedding is a dark purple as well.  Our furniture is dark espresso and we have charcoal gray sheets and pillows.  We will be painting our bedroom a light, purplish gray color.  I can’t wait. 

Is your furniture dark or light?  What about the shade of purple for your bedding?

Paint Color (w/a tad more gray though)

We have purple bedding (like the ones in StephinPA’s post), too! I think sage or a light, creamy yellow would look good. I think we’re going to go with a yellowish beige, but we’re not sure yet. 🙂 Gray would look good, but I like warm colors!

StephinPA: where did you find that color purpleish gray? I know that’s not the color you’re using, but I like it!

I like sage green with purple! Also, a warm yellow may look nice? I think grey looks great with purple, but you said you want to stay away from neutral colors.

Grey, all the way. Especially a light slate grey. I’m obsessed with grey in general.
