If you want a warm homey room go for darker colors such as maroon, dark green, chocolate brown, or even just an accent wall that is dark to get some pop. If you are more a cautious person go with a more neutral soft brown, beige, white and use pillows and rug for some punch. Remember you can always paint over it. I have found, in moving several times, that when people enter a room they get a comfortable feeling from a room with some color. It seems to make them happier. Good luck...check out some magazines or books at the library...Too expensive to buy all of the magazines you want at the store.
