    I personally like the light blue myself.  However, I think the teal is fantastic as well.  A lot of design bloggers are going bold these days, so that’s probably why I’m drawn to it. 

    Have you seen the guest room from the Young House Love blog?

    I’m biased because I like light colors, especially love light blue. So to me both rooms look great in light blue. 

    The teal and purple both seem very energetic for a bedroom. I prefer more calming colors but that’s a personal preference. So for the bedroom, I would vote light blue or light green.

    For the great room, I prefer the light blue, with the teal second. I would probably do the whole room, but the accent wall is ok too. 

    If you love the plum for the great room, I would use it as an accent, rather than a wall color. A neutral color like grey, light moss green, beige with lots of plum accents would be great. Although, looking at the pics again, the plum accent wall is kind of nice.

    Love the teal in the bedroom. The light blue is my fav for the greatroom, but I don’t like the accent wall either.

    I love teal and am all for bold colors (our bedroom is a bright orangy-yellow), but for your bedroom, especially with the smaller windows, I’d go with the light blue or light green (I especially like the light blue). I agree that it makes it feel calm and peaceful

    I picked the light blue as first choice for the bedroom.  I didnt’ even notice all the other things were blue, but probably because I like the monotone color scheme.  Now that you mention it, your furniture seems to pop a little better with the green, while still keeping a soothing fairly monotone room.  I dont think you could go wrong with either.

    For the liviing room, I picked dark teal accent wall.  I’m scared of color and am afraid that it might be too bold for a whole room, but love it as an accent wall.  Though the blue accent wall looks great too… I just thought if blue was arleady in the bedroom, then something different should be in the living room.
