What Color Do I Paint The Walls?

Q: Hi, I am redecorating my flat. I am going for an old Hollywood glamour/vanity fair type interior. I love the design look of Ryan Korban. My question is — what color do I paint the walls? I am at a loss for what color to use to complement the furniture I've already purchased? Should I do one wall with a wallpaper maybe? Or another color? I feel like this is the one area that I am stuck on from taking the room from nice to amazing.

Editor: First, your furniture choices are all very neutral (sliver, white, clear acrylic) and you can really go in any color direction that you wish. I suggest browsing the entries from the Room for Color contest and seeing what speaks to you, color-wise. There seems to be a lot of tealy-blues and smoky grays this year and both would be great colors for the look you are going for.

Who has color suggestions for Nikita?
