Farrow and Ball Skylight is a lovely powdery blue

Parma grey (F&B) is lovely, not very light though (and blue despite the name!)
Are you looking for something just a shade or two up from white?

Blue is a cold colour however much you dress it up with a fancy name. If you want warm, you are going to have to go for a different colour.

Ooh! F&B Borrowed Light. T'is wonderful!

I got a lovely powdery blue that is quite warm - its B&Q Colours range.

We also have a navy blue wall that looks awesome and isnt 'cold' at all.

F&B Borrowed Light. I also found cornflower white by dulux had a warmth to it, but that was in a south facing bedroom.

Dulux powder blue is warm feeling and pretty

I've just painted with homebase own brand Blue Lake - a lovely warm blue which next to antique ivory (also a Homebase colour) looks lovely.

I'm with Blossom I'm afraid. Blue is a cold colour. Happy to be proven wrong but I really doubt there is such a thing as a warm light blue.

Farrow and Ball Skylight here too, we have it in our bathroom.

Siarie Mon 27-Feb-17 07:04:21

Hope this helps! It does feel warm for a blue

F&B Skylight lover too - have it in two bedrooms. Use it on one wall though with nice cream on others. Keeps it nice and warm.

I have a beautiful blue from Laura Ashley. It's Matt, which helps the warmth I think. Can't think of the name though, sorry

Thanls everyone for these ideas. Ive looked at some rooms on Pinterest and there do seem to be some warm and some cold though im struggling to pinpoint the difference. DH is sadly a dulux only man as a decorator once told him not to use anything else! So anymore dulux ideas would be great. In the meantime ill work on him with farrow and ball and laura ashley. Thanks!

Fired Earth Sea Lavender - blue with a pinky undertone, it's lovely

DD has Fired Earth Sea Lavender in her bedroom. It's gorgeous. Quite a strong colour rather than pastel, and can look almost purple sometimes. Goes very well with various bright pink accessories.
