Wall Color Suggestions for Copper Bed & Dark Wood Furniture?

Good Questions

Q: I am upsizing my mattress and had to purchase a new bed. I ended up going with a beautiful antiqued copper bed from Home Decorators Online, both because of its looks and because it was within my budget. Because I'm switching out beds, I'm also hoping to paint the bedroom walls, which are currently a very blah beige. (I moved into this house about a year ago and have been taking the process of painting and decorating fairly slowly.) I'm not sure, though, what colors would look good in the room.

The room has wall-to-wall dark brown carpet, and I also have a large dark wood dresser (I've attached a photo of it from my previous house - the wall and carpet colors are not the same as in this photo). There is a medium-sized window in the bedroom that lets in some light, but I would certainly not call it a very bright room. I'd love some suggestions for wall colors. I lean toward cool colors, but am happy to experiment. Thanks for whatever insight/advice folks have!
