Paint this Slanted Wall/Ceiling? What Color?

Good Questions

Pin it button big

Q: I am going to be painting my boys' room soon (ages 7 and 5). It is currently a dark brown and I am looking to lighten it up a bit. I'm still unsure on the color(s) I will be doing. But my question is this: the room has a large slanted wall/ceiling on one side. The slant is currently white - matching the top ceiling. Do I keep it white? Do I paint it whatever color I paint the rest of the walls? Do I do an accent color on it? Any thoughts and ideas would be much appreciated! Thanks!

Editor: Who else has a slanted ceiling like Emily's? What color is it? What's your advice - to paint or not to paint? If to paint, should it match the ceiling or the other walls?
