    the blue and grey accents that you already have with go great with the light green (celery) I even plugged your awesome lampshade color in Behr.com as an accent color and it brought up the exact celery color as a main color along with a dark purplish maroon color (similar to your plum, but lighter) But I would still go with the light green. You should check out the Sherwin Williams or Behr sites, you can put room colors together or they can suggest colors for you! Its super awesome batman.

    With as big as your room is, and the two large windows I’d totally go bold with the dark teal color!! with the light blue accents it will look stunning!!

    If you aren’t afraid of paint, I’d go for the teal.  You can do so much with a bold back drop. 

    It’s only paint…it’s only a long term commitment if you hate painting.  I LOVE painting, so I don’t mind trying something and changing it a year or two later.

    We have the same color furniture and have a warm yellow. But since that isn’t an option, (I’m biased! haha)  I voted for the celery green. I don’t like dark wall color with dark furniture, myself. But if you do, then teal or plum would look beautiful! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am partial for the celery color, because we have a similar color in our house. have you tried getting the small paint sample bottles and trying the colors out? I find its really hard to make a decision without actually seeing them in person. Even the little color swatches look totally different than the actual color.

    If you want it darker, you can have them mix it like 25% darker or whatever.

    I think you would be fine with any wall color, but if I were you I would paint the walls a light gray or even a bluish gray.

    How about a dark accent wall so you get your bold punch of color without it being too overwhelming?  Painting the room shouldn’t be too bad if you want to save some money or be more open to changing it more often.  My bedroom is about 15×18 with a 12 foot vaulted ceilling, and it took me about 8 hours to do by myself.  (I havent decided to attack my two story living room with paint yet either since its taller)

    I was going to say plum as well! It can totally be masculine too w/ the dark brown wood accents.

    A rich jewel-toned teal would look amazing!! I’m debating that or a rich purple for my own bedroom…

    Dark blue gets my vote, only because it’s classic and will go with everything, should you decide to change your accent colors in a year or two…I feel like the other options are too specific (for me, at least) and I feel like you can never go wrong with blue or grey ๐Ÿ™‚ Which brings me to my other option, what about a light grey? That would be beautiful with the light blue you have going on…
