Help me choose a new colour scheme for my bedroom....pleeeaase....

It is a rather large room, with plenty of natural light from windows at each end. We have lots of fitted furniture so not a lot of exposed walls to paint. Side walls are currently Raspberry Diva with a sort of pinky cream on the end walls. Carpet (staying) is pale oatmeal and furniture (staying) is mahogany (colour not real mahogany!) with brass handles (although I’m not averse to changing handles - 25 of them). Our bedding is all white / cream. So only really changing paint colour and blinds..... suggestions appreciated as DH and I just look at each other blankly when we talk about it....

i think a nice sage green and cream would look nice with your furniture and carpet.

Have a look at clunch by f and b. I have it in the kitchen and It's a really restful very pale green, really subtle. Or once you've chosen your green, adding dusky pink and cream accessories and bedding would be lovely in a bedroom, especially with the dark furniture.

Pic of I said, it's very very subtle, changes with the light and I reckon with pinks and stronger greens as accessories and your dark furnitureit'd appear even more green iyswim

Go on dulux visualiser app

You can either take photo of your room or use it live and play with colours of every shade under the sun

To see how different colours look in different light and different spaces but within your stuff and furniture iyswim

Help! I’m redecorating my bedroom and am becoming slightly obsessed by colour. The woodwork will be pure eggshell white.
The room is south facing yet somehow doesn’t get very much light. I love Little Green paint colours, though they keep coming out one shade or another of lilac. My five favourites at the mo are Mirror, Pearl Colour Pale, Aquamarine pale, Julie’s Dream (all keeping room light and airy) or Blush, much deeper. Would Blush make the room feel smaller? Any thoughts on any of those colours much appreciated. I’m searching for a calm retreat.
Many thanks
