    Rashmi, I am not a very big fan of pink, so I will leave that out. Using the other colors, I can think of these combinations - one wall red or cocoa and the rest three in off white. If you like darker rooms, go for all coco - I had a totally red room and changed the color, didnot feel comfortable in that color. The other combo would be one red and 3 coco - I am hoping you mean chocolate brown by cocoa - if you like dark rooms, this combo would work so well. Another way to go is one wall dark color and other three light with some stencling with the darker color.

    Not really, since it is just one wall that is cocoa - it will just draw attention to that wall. You can also use just that wall to decorate, that way the room won't look crowded or keep the TV on that side of the wall. I have a freind who has cocoa as wall color in a whole room and yet the room doesnot look small because of the number of windows and also the fact that room does not have doors - it opens into dining room.

    Do please eome pictures if you get a chance!!

    Hi Rashmi,
    You just search on net you will get very good collection of wall paint with the interior decoration. So after seeing it you will get best.

    Hi Gals,
    We bought a house recently. In my master bedroom, I got one wall painted red. But it has actually made the room(otherwise airy and lighted), very dark. Now, I am thinking of covering that wall with a wallpaper of suitable shade.
    Please pass on your suggestions.

    Pink is a very girly colour. Would look nice in a little girls room.

    Cocoa is a nice colour. But it will limit your room decor to shades of beige and brown...and maybe rust.

    Red (though not my choice of colours) seems like the perfect colour. You could use hues of the sunset to do up your curtains, pillows, cushions and bedspreas.
