"Putting color up on the wall can be a nerve racking decision. I've worked with plenty of clients too nervous to put anything besides beige up on the wall! Something to keep in mind when choosing a color is to see how much time you will be spending in that space, and what emotions you want when you walk in the room. Family rooms often have many windows that draw your eye outside, and that is where you want a lot of your focus and attention; which is why many large areas are normally neutral.
If you pick a bold color for a room you will be spending a lot of time in, remember that it can wear on you. In my experience gathering rooms should be a bit more neutral; whereas for smaller rooms (or spaces you don't spend much time in) be creative and have fun with color! In this client's room we were really inspired by the fall leaves outside. We chose a warm yellow, which is perfect year around. Then, to balance the bright yellow we decided to go with a darker, neutral drapery fabric and bedding."
