Currently having an extension built and cannot decide what colour to paint our master bedroom. I have a teal blue duvet, curtains, pillows. What colour would you choose? Thanks

Do an internet search for the colour wheel - the BBC website has one with guidance which looks easy to use.

On the colour wheel I'd either go for one of the colours either side of teal which work with it or one of the ones a third of the way round for a more striking combination.

Because teal is a strong colour I would use predominantly white with one wall in your chosen colour and add accessories in that colour and others which work with it. Hope that helps.

Our spare room is teal and cream. I think it looks lovely.

We have teal accessories in our bedroom. We have painted it a beigey coffee colour.

Our living room is very pale blue walls with teal and grey furniture.

Thanks they all sound lovely combinations. I will check out the wheel as I am intrigued :-)

What colour carpets do you think would look nice too? I would rather stay away from white/cream carpets with the kids etc.

I'm hoping to go grey in my teal room but that might be too close to cream for you. What about chocolate?

Chocolate with highlights of silver!

I would go with a beige/stone/latte/taupe sort of colour

We have a teal chimney breast wall in living room and have a stone colour on the other walls (b&q colours - Lauren). Also have tiny bits of green and beige.

I have just ordered a tealish sofa for our kitchen which has dark wood floor and will have jasmine white walls, so am hoping it will look good!

Our bedroom has one wall in teal. The rest is grey. With a grey carpet. Was going to grey curtains but have chosen a faux silk teal colour. The grey was dulux chic shadow

Go to the design seeds website to find colour sets that include your colour.
