NY Good Questions: How Should I Paint My Bedroom?

Pin it button big

Dear AT,

I just had my bedroom completely redone and installed built-in shelves as well as a radiator cover/bench.

I'd like to paint the walls in off-white and shelves/baseboard/bench in white; however, find it hard to decide where to draw the line.

Should I just paint the front and inside of the shelves in white?...

Or should I paint the whole window and closet area in white and just the side walls in off-white?

Would it be weird to have two white walls and two off-white walls?

Or should I just leave everything in white?

I'm getting a new door which will probably be white and the closet doors will be frosted glass with silver frame.

The floor is natural maple. Most of my furniture is metal/white.

I'm thinking of adding colors through blinds, pillows, and bedding.

Thanks! Pat
