Do You Have Neutral Living Room Walls?

Since I'll soon be integrating my new purple chairs into my living room, I'm thinking it's time to say goodbye to my peacock blue walls and paint the room a neutral color, like a soft gray. In the past, I have had some living rooms with white or off-white walls, but I must admit I've felt a little bored by them. I think gray will be a little more interesting, but I'm worried that neutral walls won't suit me; I'm such a color enthusiast. Do you have neutral living room walls?

I'm a renter, but luckily my apartment's neutral walls aren't white! They are a lovely soft cocoa shade, with white trim. It wouldn't be my first choice, but after years of apartments painted "crappy apartment white" and one, very memorably, painted "Forest Service vehicle green," the cocoa is very welcome.

Renter with the same problem. I hate my white walls...Even with all of my framed pictures and art on the walls, I just can't seem to make it look like a home.
