Alison's Wall Pattern Project: Help! Color?

Pin it button

I have never been a good "decider", and choosing colors for walls for me is like a trip to the dentist. I've got the rug, the dresser, the poster, and I know I want triangles on the walls — but what color? Can you help me decide?

Two options are above, the other two are below. Keep in mind that the rug is actually slightly more blue than it looks here, and the dresser slightly brighter than this photo (cropped out of my dull "before" pics). The dresser may still go! It is teetering on the edge of the outbox, depending on how many of the kids' clothes and toys I can bear to part with. The other things to remember is that I cannot paint, and while I wish the walls were perfect white, they are actually that lovely "rental cream". You can see the whole room in its previous state in the before pics here.

So what do you think: gray, black, pink or green?
