A good friend of mine recently painted her bedroom walls a very pale lilac. The effect is gorgeous, and her dark gray linens look spectacular — even better than they did with simple white walls. I've been hankering for more color on my walls for some time, but haven't been able to decide on the room or the hue.
A pale color seems ideal for the bedroom — it's not nearly as big of a commitment as, say, painting the kitchen or living room, and it'll be a welcome, low-key dash of cheeriness when I wake up in the morning. Here's a roundup of options from Apartment Therapy and around the web.
