ok white is too cold for a bedroom. Something like tranquil dawn ( Dulux) a pale neutrally green grey that changes colour in different lights, with perhaps a feature wall behind your bed in denim drift (dulux) . Ceilings -always go for matt white. https://www.dulux.co.uk/en/dulux-colour-year-2020

ken -I asked because years ago I chose a very dark green for a dining room and when the guy came to decorate he actually asked me if I really wanted that color! I insisted and when it was finished and dried he conceded it was 'ok' but his opinion haunted me and I redid it a few months later lol!

Postman I apologise for your thread being hijacked.

Check out those colours I mentioned, they go really well together and will blend in with your carpet and curtains.
Well at least you apologised, I just hope you mean it.

Postman, please come back and let us know how your room turns out. This is a very much under-used category in AB.
I haven't done anything to apologies for . Postman gave me best answer. :0)
I never advise on colour, APG. Materials, yes, but as i said earlier, the homeowner is the one who has to live with the colour scheme. And i have been called back on a few occasions because the customer has decided that they actually don't like the colours they have chosen.
As for testing different shades/colours before settling on the required scheme, please, postman, do not do what lots and lots (and even more lots) of people do. That is to lay the paint on as thick as they can. Remember that your decorator will most likely use a roller to apply the paint and a roller distributes the paint thinner than a brush. Even were he/she to use a brush, he/she would not apply as thick a coat as the person doing the testing, and the areas tested will be difficult to cover. Far better to use a few sheets of blank paper and pin them to the wall.
Hope that makes sense :-/
