accent wall?

I'm painting a bedroom blue-green. It's not light...it's darker. The carpet in there is already a lighter blue. Should I paint all 4 walls blue-green or should I paint an accent wall blue-green and the other 3 walls another color (tan)? Please help!

Well....a good way to start would be to paint one wall your blue/green and see if you like the color and if it is enough color for the room. I think a nice Cameo White may be a better color for the rest of the wallls, or a predominant color in the curtains or bed clothing.......

I personally dislike the "accent wall" trend, I think it is very disconnected and strange. If you want to add some interest, why not paint stripes or something? They're one of the easiest DIY faux finishes and can be very pretty. I especially like doing stripes with just a coat of semi gloss varnish, very subtle but very pretty.
