Shades of Grey for a Soothing Slumber

Carol Writes: I would like to paint my bedroom three shades of grey.  One color for one wall and the ceiling as well as one color for the other three walls and another for the trim and doors. I would like the trim and doors to be the darkest color in the room. I do not want tones of pink, green, or blue in the grey and I would generally prefer warmer tones.  Only the trim and doors should be the darker shade.   Additionally, the carpet is very light and there are two window frames, baseboards and louvered closet doors.  See Answer From Erika Ward »
