Furniture color in dark basement room // advice needed

Hey guys! I’m moving into a new Brooklyn apartment next month and need some help with COLOR. The room itself has extremely muted tones, gray-green walls, beige stone, warm overhead lighting, and not a whole lot of natural light.

I’m a big Scandinavian interior enthusiast, but I’m not sure whether to **play to the color scheme already present**, or **lighten up the room with bright tones**.

End all question, **what color should the bed be**?

    I would decorate with light olive, white and maybe yellow accents here and there. Examples of things i would put down here: large potted plants, white matted artwork, yellow and white pillows, white vases, olive throw blankets, wood baskets, etc. You need a few lamps. Clear glass or white bases with white linen shades. Try to create a cheerful natural mood.

    Perhaps consider changing the lighting from warm white to bright white or daylight bulbs to make the place seem a little more airy.

    Since there doesn’t seem to be a lot of natural light, the space would look bigger with some deeper tones like midnight blue, dark gray, eggplant, etc.

    I just got finished painting my living room, kitchen, and hallway a clear, pale yellow that reads as a light warm neutral. It looks great, but it was a huge job. I spent a week filling holes and sanding. If you’ve got the time and the inclination to paint, then go for it. The color you’ve got now is neutral enough to work with. A red comforter would look great in your room. Lighting is important, as well. I prefer indirect lighting, so look into getting some interesting lamps. Plants will probably not make it in your new place-not enough natural light. And-what’s at the top of that ladder?
