Want to redecorate the master bedroom, 13 year old ds, 10 year old dd and the spare room as all looking a bit tired now. I'd love some ideas on colours that have really worked for you.

Have a look on houzz or apartment therapy.

Have a look on pinterest. If you put "colour palette" into the search bar it will give you loads of ideas of colours to match together then you can work from there.

I like a warm biscuity colour with woodwork done in a slightly darker biscuity colour and white door and ceiling. It looks really classy, feels cosy, and is a little bit different and interesting smile

Our bedroom is this color.

Mine is sort of mink with one cerise wall and accessories. I haven't decorated for 10 years because decorating makes me sad.

Our room is valspar tidepool wonder. We've got white woodwork, white and oak furniture and lots of yellow accents. I love it.

Our bedroom is this colour. It's Farrow & Ball Card Room Green. I love it. We have stripped floorboards and off-white woodwork. We're moving house soon and I plan to paint our new bedroom in the same colour.

I'm glad I'm not alone in liking my bedroom black. Black walls, white ceiling and white bit above picture rail, black furniture, wooden floor and white bedding.

After years of neutral walls I had enough recently and have coloured my whole house. My bedroom is powder blue with navy curtains, matching headboard and pink and blue bedding. My porch hallway and livingroom are a warm, light yellow called Egyptian Sand. In the livingroom, I have an exposed brick fireplace, and lots of cream, yellow and browns in the furniture which give it a hint of 70s style that I've accentuated with lots of green leafy plants and retro comic book cushion covers.

DS's room is a deep blue-toned green. It's a very strong colour but his room is very big and he has framed posters, toy display shelves and multi-coloured Hot Wheels Wall Tracks all over the room, so the strong colour really suits it. In the same vein his playroom is a deep burnt orange. My kitchen is grey with pink and silver wall paper behind the counters. Throughout the house all the doors and skirting boards are natural wood. I absolutely love the colour everywhere. Each room makes a real statement and sets a mood. And they feel unique and 'mine.'

Dulux Natural Slate in our room
Dulux Chic Shadow in DS' room

I can also recommend Dulux Teal Tension from their feature wall range. It's gorgeous.
