Smile Help choosing wall color...

I need a new paint job on my bedroom walls... Right now I have a mauve color on them and I'm sick to death of it, never really liked it to begin with and I'm ready for a change... Problem is, I don't know a good color to go with... My carpet is a light green, almost like an olive green which I love and don't intend on changing anytime soon... The ceiling is flat white and I have an "African Saffari" theme going on... I'm so afraid of picking another color I won't be happy with, any ideas????? I am so not good at this decorating stuff, lol... Thanx in advance!!!

i'm so glad you're getting rid of that dated mauve!!!

make the decision easy on yourself: pull a color from your bedding! (if you don't have the bedding yet, get it FIRST.) is there a cream/tan/beige/brown color in there? that'd be a nice neutral to go with the green carpet. then the focus turns to your bedding, curtains & furniture.

and, be prepared for the shock - going from mauve walls to a neutral, your first thought will be that it's blah & boring, but it's not. it's better - trust me!
