Paint your room with a retro style kinda theme. And maybe put some disco fever wallpaper in front of your bed... Another idea is paint your room Red adn put some beach wallpaper hehehe

Retro is cool. As for the "disco fever" I believe that bedroom should be minimal in furniture so that the owner of the room can concentrate on sleeping. Red keep us active but I remember that there are bedrooms with red walls and accent pieces maybe to keep the passion.

Yeah. We can use some accents to balance the room. And lighting fixtures I recommend not to use flourescent with white lights. I believe its better to use incandescent. hehe

Our whole apartment was always white and boring because my mother said this was the most practical color. But now we colored everything. My parents painted one wall in their bedroom a strong blue color and it really changed the room. We colored a hallway in dark green and not all the small things like paintings etc. on the wall are really visible and it looks great. I painted a wall in my room in a strong dark pink color and I put some vinyl stickers on and it's by far the most beautiful room I have ever seen in my life. I think vinyl stickers are an ideal decision because you can paint your walls in one color and then put this on and make it interesting. When you become bored of it, you can always rip them off and not damage the wall paint at all. But if you put a wallpaper on the wall you have to rip it all down when you become bored of it and do all the work again from the beginning. I think you should paint your room in a strong color, but maybe not the whole room, just one wall, because it can be too much. I really like how my room turned out and I think it would be the best for you, too.

Bright and shiny red abject with a spotlight can give a boring white walled room an attitude. I remember that the artists' apartment tend to have all white wall (maybe in general but there could be others who don't) because the light will reflect from ever direction, giving them an adequate lighting for their art project.

Choosing a color is not an easy task. It wasn't easy for my husband and I to chose a color for our apartment. But the advice that i could give you is to chose a color that you like, a color that you won't get bored of within a month of painting your walls. Go to a place where they sell paint and just look at the different colors they have. I think that it should be up to you to decide.

Colours have a lot to do with your personality, your feelings and the amount of light the room has. Two years ago, I painted my bedroom. It used to be a neutral pastel colour. We had chosen that with my late husband: a room that wans´t his or hers. When I had to sleep alone there I thought I needed something more personal. So I painted it mustard and got a bedspread according to it.

hi, kar295rocks the soft color is the choice.the best choice for people who lived in the city because in the city we experirienced the density,the impasse and stress.if your hous will be painting with soft color will make you relax and reduced stress if you arrived in your house

What color should you paint your room? I think you should paint your room creamy orance. I think you should paint your room creamy orange because it reminds me of sunsets and sunrises. And orange is a pretty color. Well, actually, I think you should paint your room with whatever color you like. Or maybe, white because it's simple.

depends on what you like i think. your room should be cozy and comfy so choosing the right color is necessary. it's your preference since it's your room after all. hehe! but i suggest you choose a color that is cool to the eye so that your room will look like fresh always :D
