    is ur furniture dark brown or is that black? if it’s black, i say go for a greyish tone of plum.


    if it’s brown, then do the teal.  i don’t think the dark furniture will look good with the celery green, unless you changed your color accent.

    I might be biased but I think the green would look AWESOME 🙂

    younghouselove painted their guest bedroom a dark teal and I LOVE it.  I vote for that 🙂

    @CorgiTales: Well, I just don’t like dark colors with dark wood, especially in bedrooms. But that is just me. Based on your poll results, many think the teal would look great! You also mentioned your bedroom is large, so you could go with a dark color. But I just think the celery green will be a more soothing color. (you mentioned you wanted soothing) I think the others will be a more bold statement. But any of the colors will look nice. I like them all! Have fun deciding which one to use.

    Because you wont be painting yourself and wouldn’t want to have to re-paint, I would definitely invest in those paint samplers and paint out a few test areas. 

    I agree that if your furniture is more dark brown than black I would go teal. If you have enough light and because your accents are all light, in the end I don’t think it’d be too dark. That said, the plum is a really nice color too, I like it with the light/dusty blue. Hah, I can see why you’re having trouble choosing 🙂

    I have a room in almost that exact teal, and it’s amazing. I use black, white & green accents in the room. Not sure if your current blue would work well with it though, unless it’s more gray?

    I like a Williamsburg Blue type color like the dark one you had. I think it will be a nice contrast. I’m not a big fan of non-matching things though.

    @CorgiTales: I actually thought edging along the ceiling was easier than the edge of the doors and windows.  I didn’t use any tape.  I used a 10 foot step ladder and just went up and down… a LOT.  Thats probabaly what took most the time.  But I figured I’m saving money and getting a work out so it was a win win!  =)

    I personally LOVE the celery color, but I also think the teal would look amazing!!

    Is there a way you could do a ‘mock-up’ in photoshop with the colors and see what you like best?

    ETA:  Here’s an online tool where you can ‘paint’ sample rooms in a variety of colors to see how it looks.  You can change the accent colors and some other characteristics also… might be worth doing that also.
