Hello all,

I'm having a new bedroom built, and am having trouble coming up with a color preference/scheme for it. Though, I recently ran across a pictures of a wheat field, that I'd love to grab color from.

I was thinking maybe three colors..is that too many? Three walls being that wheat color, maybe an accent wall being that dark/navy blue, and a light blue ceiling? For a very air-y relaxing out door feel, yet I want it to have a nice night atmosphere too.

As this is a new room, there is nothing to worry about as far as restrictions pertaining to furniture, accessories, or artwork - I recently moved, and liquidated all my material positions.

Many thanks!

(ohh, there will be dark hardwood floors - the room is 20 x 12 1/2 feet - 8 ft ceiling)

Don't paint the ceiling anything but white. I've tried it with light colors and it just looks terrible.

If you haven't done the floors yet, prehaps you might reconsider dark floors and use your wheat color as an inspiration for the wood color.

I wouldn't use the navy end of dark blue. Try to capture the blue in the picture--which is fresh and vibrant as opposed to dark.

Make your third color a different shade of wheat (there's dark and light wheat in the picture.)

You don't need to put all colors on the walls. You can incorporate some colors in the floor, the furniture, the textiles.

I'd do white, deep sky blue, two shades of wheat.

Maybe three walls a light shade of wheat and one wall a deep shade of wheat---then incorporate the blue with textiles.

That way you can easily change the room later---when you get tired of the blue---because everything goes with wheat
