It'll add personality to your space.

And you can always add lighting.

  • If you like the color go ahead and paint the whole space.

White:

I hate white walls. They feel stark and bland.
If you really want something very light,
I suggest using something with a slight tint.
This will give your space the cozy vibes you're looking for.

Pink:

One of my favorites. 
Pink is a warm and almost neutral color, so you don’t tire of it easily.
It gives charming, cozy vibes, and is the ideal choice if you're looking for a more interesting neutral color.
(Of course you have the very kitschy bright pinks, but those aren’t something I’d use in any interior.)

Light Pink

The problem with very light pinks is that they look kitschy.
So I always look for something that has a lot of brown in it, so after much trial and error, these are my all time favorites:
