Help with my living room!

So when we moved in we painted everything white. My hallway, bathroom, spare room, kitchen, living room etc. All white. I got really bored and pregnancy hormones made me paint the living room a blue colour. Which I do like but don't love.

I was looking over at pictures and found a pic of it white and I LOVE it. But everywhere else is white 😩
What do you prefer? I have loads of emulsion left over to repaint but I do like the blue and feel like it breaks it up a lot.
Help? Or any other colour ideas I'd be greatful. I like period properties and dramatic colours in them. But I can't afford a period property house and I feel like the blue looks really.. Odd just on four flat walls..

I love that blue! My Pinterest board is full of similar blues as I'm thinking of painting my living room that colour!

I think it looks strong and not odd at all smile

Also, can you let me know what blue paint you used? smile

I think all white can be a bit meh but then I am partial to colour!

The blue is nice but I personally couldn’t live with it, too dark for me. I’d go for the white and change the accessories to add some colour that way.

I'm intrigued...why 2 clocks? And why do they say different times?

I love the blue. Is it on all the walls?

The two clocks haha, I'm a sucker for vintage finds and Carboots. They're the 60s sundial clocks. The top one has bad a bit of wear and tear and no longer works but the bottom one works perfectly smile I just love collecting them. I'll get back later about the blue, I'll have to find it out the shed and let you all know smile I will say one thing about the colour, it isn't very hard wearing. I only have to put a picture up and it'll scratch off sad

Love the blue and love the mantle.

Well, I think I love especially the dark colour, that's very stylish, reminds me pictures from an interior magazines, but you can try different colour, or perhaps some wallpaper?

I'd keep the blue theme but change the shade to Inchrya blue. Best of both worlds- gorgeous dramatic new blue, but helps with the itchy feet!
