A strong warm blue paint colour, your recommendations please!

My bedroom walls are in need of painting. All my duvet covers (which I am not changing) are varying shades of purple (dark / aubergine not lilac) with odd bits of blue and pink and grey thrown in.

Attached is an example of the colour palette I have (photo of one of my duvet covers). The walls are currently cream but I would love to paint them a strong warm possibly blue shade. It's a southwest facing room so I think it can take it.

Please can you recommend any colours (including non-blue suggestions if you wish, I am open to anything). Floors are wooden and wardrobes are cream.

Thank you.

I just painted my dd's room F&B Lulworth Blue - her choice, it's not a colour I would ever have chosen, but I must say it looks great. It's a kind of Wedgwood Blue - seasidey by day, but goes beautiful and velvety in the evening. It looks really nice with Wimborne White.
