Wall color help!

Wall color help!

Hi guys! I'm moving into my first place in two months, and although I haven't even FOUND a place yet, I'm starting to get that first place fever. I'm only going to be renting, but if I plan on being a lean mean decorating machine.

My question is a very open one. I'm a film snob, and a college student, and therefore have a bunch of posters.

These, actually:



Luckily, and purely by accident, they seem to coordinate moderately well. I'm hoping on buying this bed from IKEA, in this dark brown-black:



But I also might end up taking my mother's older brass bed. But that's all I have as far as my room goes. I'd pretty much be decorating around my posters. So, more than likely, white bedding and the like. I'm praying that I find a reasonable place with hardwood floors.

My question is: if I'm allowed to paint the walls, what color should I paint them? I'm thinking of actually doing a single accent wall in this "aruba elephants" blue in the decal that I just found thanks to this site! I'm also thinking an extremely light purple. Your opinions?
