What colour are the walls in your bedroom?

Going to repaint my North facing bedroom this year.

I am seriously thinking of teal for 3 of the walls and white on the other, but it's very bold. Would get plain white bedlinen and a mustard throw. But interested to know what others have.

White walls ceiling and floor in our north facing bedroom

Which sometimes looks very pink and sometimes very neutral. East-facing bedroom.

I think a bedroom can take a strong/dark colour because it's probably dark most of the time you're in there anyway, it doesn't have to feel light and airy. Which wall would be white?

White and different shades of grey. I also have a silver and white feature wall behind my bed that I love

White on ceilings and all walls except the firebreast wall which is wallpapered in a mostly white wallpaper with yellow sunflowers on it. It's a very restful room.

That sounds like a nice colour combo, you should go for it.

Pale,duck egg blue , white bedlinen and cream carpet

Your plan sounds nice apart from the mustard throw. Have to be honest, not sure about that,,,,

Dulux polished pebble, is grey but can look pale blue or lavender depending on the light/time of day.
Paired with white coving and ceiling, a neutral/cream carpet, and white or cream bedding.

Butterfly wallpaper on feature wall and lavender paint on the rest.

Duck egg blue, with one wall a darker shade. I love it.

White (also north facing). Would like yellow if I repeint. Real with mustard sounds fabulous though I prefer neutrals to lerk it versatile.

'Teal' not real!

Yika Fri 06-Jan-17 20:04:55

And 'keep' not lerk!!!

Magnolia like the rest of my house. Am rubbish with colour sorry I'm no help but your idea sounds lovely!
Wish someone would come to mine and give me some ideas. Do people do that sort of thing?

I like the teal and mustard idea, OP. Yellow & mustard palettes are 'in' this year, so you'll be fashionable.

Mine is F&B Pigeon. East facing, large room, tall ceilings. Grey carpet, white ceilings. Woodwork is also in Pigeon.

Dulux Cornish clay.

We have teal walls in our living room and I love them.

Our guest room is blue-green with white linen, white furniture, mustard blankets and ornaments. It looks great.

It's Valspar tidepool wonder ...

F&B Blackened, which purports to be grey but in most lights is a very pale blue. I think pale blue is very restful in a bedroom. Big iron bed, iron bedside tables, white lamps and plum curtains. We have a big picture window with lots of trees outside.

Howard, Pigeon is my this year's F&B crush. Wonderful colour.

A pale blue/green colour.

This one, I think: www.homebase.co.uk/en/homebaseuk/dulux-willow-tree---matt-emulsion-paint---25l-231065

In my last home / North facing bedroom - Dulux Natural Hessian walls & cream carpet. Loved it and never felt the need to change it as it was very warm toned and calming - despite the lack of sunlight. After dark, the lighting makes all the difference however.

Current (new) home / West facing bedroom - Dulux Polished Pebble & cream carpet. It looks very nice and on-trend, but I think I prefer the warmth of Natural Hessian.

Pale blue, white on the sloping ceiling. One wall covered by very pale wood wardrobes so dont actually see that much of the blue.

Canton from little greene is a beautiful teal colour. My bedroom is in timeless with charcoal bedding and oak furniture.

So mostly softer shades, I wonder if I am being too bold with teal.

The Little Green Canton that Olecranon has pointed out is just the colour that I am thinking of.

I have a large bay window, with a white radiator below the window so thinking of making that white to make the radiator less of a feature and also to break the teal up a bit.

3 pale pink and one teal (the wall you see as you walk in).
