Wall Prints and Wallpaper

You will want to stick with colors that are warm and cozy, but feel free to experiment with whatever color you prefer. You could go the whole hog and repaint all of the walls and furniture. However, it might be easier to change some of the furnishings, get some new curtains and a new bedding set. If you get all of these in the same color but different shades, then it will have a great effect on the room, and you will find the room much more interesting again.

Instead, try to match your wood types.
