I like shades of blue (although my room can’t be painted in blue since I’m a girl:)). Calming and peaceful. Or lavender and a light shade of green.June 5, 2011 5:47 am at 5:47 am #775252
observanteen: thanx 4 ur suggestions. I like blue too but same (since im a girl!) I was also thinking of like a mint green or maybe a pale yellow or cream….there are so many to choose from!June 5, 2011 5:47 am at 5:47 am #775253SacrilegeMember
It depends on your taste and what look you are trying too achieve.
When you make a one part of the room the focal point it makes the rest of the room seem bigger, for example if you paint 3 walls one color and the fourth another or wallpaper the remaining wall that will be your focal point (I happen to love this look).
Good luck and have fun!June 5, 2011 5:52 am at 5:52 am #775254
Green’s also nice. Perhaps try diff shades for every wall. Good luck!!June 5, 2011 6:06 am at 6:06 am #775255BasYisroel94Participant
Definitely your mint green option- It makes the room look so much more spacious!
Keep in mind that any colour you choose, it will look darker once you actually paint the wall. So in my opinion, whatever you choose- keep it light 🙂
Hatzlocha with your decision, and let us know how it turns out!June 5, 2011 7:30 am at 7:30 am #775256123bubbyParticipant
im in the same parsha!!!I was thinking about pale Lime green!!! i had it once b4, and it was so nice and calming!!1 I think ill do it again, theres nothing else for me to do, sinse im not a puple-pinky type, and i cant do blue… cream is too plain… so I guess ill stick to Green!!June 5, 2011 12:31 pm at 12:31 pm #775259haifagirlParticipant
What’s wrong with blue?June 5, 2011 1:10 pm at 1:10 pm #775260a maminParticipant
Gold is nice….. try it iin a light version.June 5, 2011 4:12 pm at 4:12 pm #775261Midwest2Participant
What does being a girl have to do with what color you paint your room? Why not blue? Will that be beged ish or something?
If you have blue eyes will you have to get brown contact lenses?
If people tell you that you look beautiful in blue but terrible in pink, will you still wear only pink? (Well, actually, nowadays most of the girls/women I see are wearing black. Why, I don’t know. I would think that _black_ would be beged ish.)
Besides, the blue/boy and pink/girl is taken over from non-Jewish culture. Why should we even bother with it?
If you like blue, by all means paint your room that color and enjoy.June 5, 2011 4:21 pm at 4:21 pm #775262dunnoMember
What happened to good old pink for girls? My room is pink and white. I love it!June 5, 2011 5:39 pm at 5:39 pm #775263
sacrilege, observanteen: interesting thought-is that how you painted your room? Midwest2: nothing to do with Beged Ish. I like blue as a color but not for my room color. I feel that a blue room is more for boys, nothing wrong with it, just my opinion. My old room was pink, so now I want to try something new. Sounds like green is the winner on this thread-perhaps Ill look into that:) a maamin:gold is definately different, I dont know of anyone with a gold room. I wonder how that would look like. Do you know of s/o with such a color? thanx e/o for all your suggestions!June 5, 2011 9:37 pm at 9:37 pm #775264
Nope. Mine’s old fashioned pink. And I’d love a change. If I’d re-paint it, I’d probably choose a light mint green.June 6, 2011 1:09 am at 1:09 am #775265bh18Participant
hi there! i am a girl, an older girl at that and yes, i painted my room BLUE!!!! it is a very pale sky blue and i feel so relaxed in my dreamy room….then i have to come out!!!!!June 6, 2011 1:46 am at 1:46 am #775266hanabMember
I would suggest shopping for linens first. Once you find something you love, choose a color from the linen.June 6, 2011 3:31 am at 3:31 am #775267
bh18: Cool. How’d you give it a “girly” look?June 6, 2011 6:08 pm at 6:08 pm #775269SacrilegeMember
It is. I would love to get a patterned wall paper such as
with the rest of the walls pale grey. Then you can introduce whatever color accents you like, either hot pink, green, blue etc..June 6, 2011 6:26 pm at 6:26 pm #775270
mu room’s also BLUE , it’s like light blue with beige and white and theres like flowers on my headboard -it’s “girly”
also my older sister’s is blue,
a little darker and with dark brown and white (lol seems like a boy’s room) but u still wouldn’t think it’s a boy’s room because her blue covers have like ruffles and it the headboard is also not boyish.June 6, 2011 6:30 pm at 6:30 pm #775271

Then there’s always a pale yellow – it’s cheerful without being overpowering.June 7, 2011 2:25 am at 2:25 am #775275Sister BearMember
just a word to the wise about greens. So I wanted to paint my room green and I asked someone who knows their stuff and they said that when you do a green, you want to make sure (for a bedroom) its a blue-green and not really a yellow-green. Yellow-green’s are really bright and can hurt your eyes.
I did tropical jade = awesome color!!!!!!!!!!!!!June 7, 2011 3:08 am at 3:08 am #775276Little Sally SaucerMember
