Colour schemes for north-facing guest bedroom

10 years ago

I am getting my house repainted in a lovely yellow-apricot which looks very cheery and warm. However, I've tested the colour in the guest bedroom (north-facing) and the lighting in that room just makes the colour look blah - not lively and pretty but really rather ick. Something about the colour does not play up well in that room.

So, I am considering painting the guest bedroom a different colour than the rest of the house. I want to do the bedroom in a French Country kind of style. What kinds of colours might work with this design style and also work for a dismal, north-facing room (given that yellows/oranges do not seem to work well in this room)? I want the room to look light and airy, not dismal. Should I try a neutral cream, a light bright blue? I am just not sure what will keep the room feeling as light and airy as possible. Thoughts??
