How To Tone Down Bright Walls In Rental?

Q: I'm going to be renting an attic room in a great house but unfortunately, the landlords have painted each wall a different bright color. I find it completely overwhelming because a bedroom for me is a calming, airy retreat where I can feel at ease. It looks like it took a lot of time and effort to paint the room this way, so I would feel terrible asking to repaint. What can I do to make this space more comfortable for me color-wise? The bedspread and rugs are not mine, so they will be gone.
