I need help with my shabby chic decorating project. I am having trouble choosing wall and furniture colors to go with the items (in the pictures above) that have been bought to design the bedroom of my dreams that is finally coming together.

This is one of a pair of antique dressers that will be in the bedroom.

I also have a matching headboard and nightstands that will need to be painted. Painting the furniture is the first part of my dilemma. I don't want too much of one color but I don't want things to get too "busy" either.

One of the dressers is already painted cream so I will probably also paint the other one cream also.

The fabrics used in the quilt hold the colors I will be primarily using. This inspiration determined that red will be the preferred accent color.

The last and perhaps the most pressing dilemma is what paint color can be used on the walls. It will need to be one that can tie everything together.

Hopefully the pictures I have posted of the quilt, headboard, one dresser and the bookshelf (which cannot be painted) will be enough for someone at Bedroom Decorating Ideas and Designs to be able to help me.
