I just saw your message, I wasn't ignoring you! The yellow I was thinking about is pretty bright. I think you are right, something soft, a soft yellow would be nice. Part of the wall will be covered by the two bookcases. And Skyler said I should fling a color at the wall with a paintbrush. That would be lots of fun! And make a huge mess. I am ready to put some Kilz on, so it will be Sunday before I am ready for paint. I have a bit more time to think. Thanks for the info! I will share pics when I get it all done.
