Good Questions: Paint Color for Dark Bedding?

I am moving and selected some really great navy bedding from Frette for the master bedroom. It is very dark; almost a midnight color. It actually looks great with some black accent pillows and coverlet to fold across the foot of the bed. It may sound strange to some, but it looks beautiful together. My question is what color should I paint the bedroom? White is way too stark with the bedding, but I don't know what neutral will work. I though maybe a light grey, but any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you

I love navy and black together — a sophisticated look. You might try a medium gray like Silver Fox, as it goes with nearly everything. Or take a look at past ColorTherapy posts on dark, dark colors (Mark's favorites!):

Anyone else?
