Bedroom colors.....

This is sort of what the bedroom looks like right now.  I have removed the silhouette picture, the bedding is changed to a patterned cover and the shelves are being removed from the wall. Next it's on to the walls. This is where I need some ideas....
Blue or green? The fabric is Ikea Gunilla and that is staying. I think the floor is going to be black wood. I have white curtains that I like and don't feel like changing. The orange hanging lamp is also staying. The duvet cover is the white and black fabric in the center. I have a dresser similiar to the one shown- it's a little lighter than that, but very similiar.

any ideas out there?

I like both the green and the blue! I think the darker blue might be a little overwhelming on the whole room. Have you considered an accent wall? The orange hanging lamp is complementary to the blue, too. he green is a little more neutral. Blue is soothing!

I'm leaning toward blue -- as MAW says, blue is soothing. I like the fabric against the blue that shows right now in the pic of the room, actually.

that blue is ok, it's just flat paint and dirty so it needs to be repainted. Also, the wall o shelves is going away meaning patching and repainting. I'm ready for a change I think though....

I was going to say that the green would be a little more unexpected with the other elements (esp. so much black & white), but with the floor changing to black I think I might like blue a little better. But a deeper blue than is there now. Either would still be good.

Mossy green! I like earthy colors in the bedroom -- mine is a chocolate brown.
