If you want to avoid the typical bedroom colors and instead try a bold shade, there are some things that need to be taken into consideration. First, it's important to choose a color that doesn't clash with your floors. Also, you want to make sure that you sample various paint colors on your walls to get the effect of what the paint will actually look like. Finally, make sure to coordinate your new paint color with any existing furniture and accents if you aren't planning to redecorate.
Once you've decided on the perfect paint color for the bedroom, choose accents that complement the wall color if you do decide to redecorate. Although you will want to opt for items that work well with the paint color, you don't need to match everything exactly. If you want to be extra daring and make a statement, you can also accessorize with colors that clash.
