Hello AT, I live in a rental but I am able to paint my walls as long as it is a color that is easy to paint over when I leave. My bedroom has boring white walls and I would like to paint them but I'm not sure what color I should use...

I have a lot of sage green in my bedroom so I'm not sure if painting the walls that color would be overkill. I also attached a close up of my bedspread for some other color ideas. Currently there is nothing above my bed. Do you have any ideas about what I can put on my wall or an easy way to create a headboard? Thanks! Heather Heather— First, no more sage green! We do think you are on the right track with a paler, neatral color. Maybe, a very pale, icy blue? Something that will add subtle contrast. We think you are spot-on in your headboard idea, too. It will help define the bed and space. This is another area where some contrast is important. A headboard can really be anything that helps define the bed—it could be as simple as taping off a shape above the bed when you paint! Anyone else??? —aaron
