 Choosing color for your walls can at times seem quite complicated...choosing the wrong color is not the worst mistake you can make as walls generally can be repainted . This is sometimes a expensive, process so it is better to get it right the first time. Here a few tips to help you get it right. 
Type and color of furniture
Whether your furniture comes from Shop 4 Furniture or some other quality manufacturer, or you made it yourself, you should certainly take its colour, size and style into consideration when looking to repaint your walls.

For example, opulent and very elaborate furniture will against very bold wall colours will make a room look loud and garish. Gentle shades like beige, cream, peach are light non-intrusive colors that will enhance the look of a room. 
Type of lighting in your home
If there is not very good lighting in your home light colors will generally brighten and dark colours will make the room seem dull. If you feel and urge to go with a dark color it is also important to remember you get tired of bold colours very easily so think twice before you choose a color like red.

 Your reaction to certain colours
Depending on the type of personality you have you would react differently to certain colors. So it is important to decide what 'mood' you want your home or room to have. For example, if blue is your color of choice, a soft baby blue will project serenity and calm, while a darker teal or a cobalt will project a trendy vibrancy. 
The size of each room to be painted
This is the simplest rule of Interior Design. Light colors are better for smaller room as they make a room look bigger than it is  and dark colors are better for larger rooms.
