I'm liking these colors Tutorial: DIY Herringbone Chevron Wall. Base color: dark gray (Cityscape by Sherwin Williams). Accent colors: two colors down the same paint chip card (Argos). Light gray wall color (Essential Gray by Sherwin Williams).
Wall colors for Ems room - I'm thinking of aqua walls, black furniture and a black/white bed spread. Oh, and my bed is white, and the closet doors and bedroom door will be white. I'm thinking it will work, after seeing this room.
