I have black furniture and a red, black, & white bedspread, with a red rug.

I was thinking about doing a red accent wall. What about the rest of the walls?

    I would choose white walls if you go with a red accent wall and light shade of gray without the red accent wall.

    If you decide to go with the red accent wall, choose a wall that you will see when entering the bedroom. One that will have something on the wall that compliments the red like art work, the bed, etc.

    When painting walls red, a tinted primer is required first.
    Choose the shade of red. You will need less than a gallon but more than a quart so buy a gallon.
    Then get a gallon of primer that is tinted to 1/4 the color of the red you choose. The primer will look dark pink. The paint store can do this for you.
    Get both in latex, NOT OIL.
    You will need one coat of primer, allow to dry well and 2 coats of the red finish paint.
    I would go with an eggshell or satin finish.
    I especially like Olympic Premium 0 VOC interior latex. No odor, nice for a bedroom. Environ friendly, goes on beautifully only $ 22 a gallon. I get it at Lowes but also sold elsewhere.

    A tone of gray that complements the red–not too dark or too light–leaning toward darker. I don’t know about the red accent wall. A bedroom is supposed to be tranquil and you might find that red isn’t calming and restful. … just a thought.

Tell me what you're thinking...
