We have a wood wall very similar to the one in this picture. I don't like the wood and want to paint it but haven't decided what color. I've noticed in magazines they paint walls as such in a white or a cream color. But I don't want to look like everyone else and I really like darker colors. I have a lot of black and dark wood furniture in the living room. What do you think about the color they painted the wood wall behind the bed? And if I paint the wood wall this color what color do you think I should paint the living room walls. I was going to go with a darker yellow but now I really like the color of this wall and yellow will not do. Any suggestions what will look great with this color? How about the post below....the second picture posted. Look at the color of wall there and tell me if it will match the color in this post. What do y'all think?
