should I use black and white or color photos to decorate our master bedroom walls (photos of our little boy)?

thanks for your input - our walls are gold and our furniture is espresso stained wood - bedding is red, gold, chocolate brown & a little bit of green. i'm thinking maybe black & whites (a grouping of 3 gallery frames) above our bed then colored ones that go in frames on our chest, across from our bed. any thoughts from anyone?

Details:

  1. depends on the pictures...if they are taken in a professional photo studio...depending on the colors the photographer has....but black and white are better b/c 1) they go w/ the colors in ur master bedroom b/c its neutral 2) it looks classic!!
  2. i like black and white its classy also the black and white with one colored item is cute
  3. Depends on your current theme and setup. A more modernized (stark white, glass and silver) look would work better with black and white photos. A more traditional colorful warm environment usually works better with nice colorful photos. It all depends on your own personal tastes.
  4. Black & white looks more upscale. I prefer it.
  5. Since you have such a warm color palette in your room, I believe that black and white photos would look a bit cold. I would suggest using sepia-toned photos. Then they will have the classy appeal of b&w but with more warmth.
