Have a basement flat with few windows - entrance hall is pretty dark. Any colour suggestions? Want something warm ideally as it can be depressing in winter.

My ds1 has a small room which never gets the sun properly due to the angle of the house. He has bright lime green walls and it makes it seem warm and bright in there. Its probably not a colour you want but I've found that bright colours tend to make rooms seem warmer than pastels and muted colours.

We have dulux lilac white in the hallway/stairs which is normally quite dark but this colour makes it a bit brighter.

Dulux do a range of light reflecting paint which sounds like it would be ideal. I'm not sure what colours they have though but might be worth a look.

Ooh light reflecting paint sounds like something I need to check out, and the lilac-white, thanks! Oh would def veto anything too loud!
