    I know this is something only some people tend to do in their homes.

    I feel it is a good idea for only larger rooms, not smaller ones. That being said, I am debating on painting a wall a bright color in my family room. The focal point would be the wall of the fireplace since the TV also sits above this.

    The walls themselves are a very faint gray. What color would look nice with this?

    Paint is a bit personal when choosing for something like this. It depends on your taste. Is there anything colorful in the room that means a lot to you?
    You can match it to that and place that on the apposite side of the room for an even flow for the eyes.

    Well I don't have a hole lot of color at all. I do have a large picture of a wedding photo with my husband and small ones around that from the wedding. We did a white and bright teal wedding.
    Maybe I could incorporate that color. I have them handing on the wall that faces the front window.

    You can also keep it neutral if you wanted. Just have the focal wall be 2 or 3 shades darker than the rest of the walls.
    Just match the paint on a swatch and move down to the darker tones. Color is not always a good idea if you plan on changing in and out decor.

    It doesn't matter if you have a whole room of color or not. It will still look just as nice with neutral colors. Like LouP mentioned, just take it down a few shades from what you already have.
    Just be sure whatever you choose, it is a color you will not get bored of.

    I had thought of this but I would it would look silly. I was looking through pictures after reading this and it really does look nice.

    Yeah thanks I am keeping that in mind. I think i will do something similar to what is pictured above.
    Keep it natural and this way I don't have to worry about changing anything in or out and not matching.

    Thanks for all your help guys!
