My DS was adament he wanted his walls in his room dark blue, trying to persuade him otherwise we caved in.

It's so dark! Im having a roller blind and new carpet but what colours should I go for to help lighten it all up

not sure if this is too hectic, but a nice day-glow theme would be quite cool... and some white areas..

Does he like it? If so, leave it for a few years, and then let him choose a different scheme. You don't need to spend much time in his room!

Otherwise will he let you keep one wall that dark, and then progressively lighten the other 4 walls - so you end up with 4 differently shaded walls?

My son has Dulux Sea Blue on his walls which is quite dark. We brightened it up with white, lime green and orange.
