What colour to paint bedroom?

Absolutely crap at choosing colours - nearly whole house is beige / cream which I am fed up with.

New bedroom suite on order which is contempoary style and in Walnut.

Room is quite large, two windows and has a beige/cream carpet (which can't be replaced as it runs through the house)

What colours to paint? (don't 'do' wallpaper) Want a calm / relaxing effect which is not too dark. Only colour DH and I have agreed on is green, although we can't agree on the shade.

I like Dulux 'graceful green' teamed with 'engraved locket' whereas DH likes 'Willow tree' teamed with 'Apple white' - which to me is too fresh.

Would these choices go with the carpet / walnut etc? What colour curtains? (I was thinking Ivory curtains)

Anyone got any suggestions?

Try Bone from Farrow and Ball. Green or Light brown in a different light......

We have Little Greene Co's French Grey Pale and I love it. It's a pale slightly bluey grey. Very calm. French Grey Mid is a slightly darker version (like you'd expect given the name smile)
