Why not work it with white?
As much as I just adore me loads of lovely color, I am not mad at an all white room. You can dress up white walls in so many ways to make a fab room. Also, with white, you are not limited on shades...there are several white wall colors that can just look magical. Ivory, off white, etc. They all work really well and are a wonderful neutral.
Keep in mind. Small rooms need major color, I personally think that if you have a small room, color is what helps make it feel bigger. If your room is big, white can be absolutely wonderful!
