Speaking of stripes, we spotted this beautiful, muted, striped wall on Cookie and loved the interplay of two similar shades of blue. When you find yourself agonizing over two shades of a color on a paintchip - why not choose both?

The effect of a color gradient can be surprisingly soothing (especially paired with a neutral like this cream) even if the shades are a few steps away from each other. You can read more about this small (9'x10') room here - it's part of a wonderful slideshow, City Kids' Rooms, at Cookie's website (we especially love this sister/brother shared room).
