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

How do you .sleep with those colours LOL? Not exactly relaxing.
White, Grey, Pale Blue or Aqua suit you?
Do you want to redecorate, or want a colour that goes with the rest of what you have got?

Grey is neutral so will go with anything. Black goes nicely with orange and green, as does a dark navy. You could even get away with a sunny yellow. Avoid any red-based colours as they will clash with the orange.
Are you keeping the curtains and carpet?

Thinking about having the room redecorated. A friend said magnolia matt. With a white matt ceiling?
Neutralising the walls would make for a more soothing room, perhaps a pale green to tone with the curtains?

Yes margotester. Keeping curtains and carpet.

Perhaps magnolia, but with a feature wall in a stronger colour.
Dulax French Cream is a nice colour - neutral but warm for a bedroom
Please not grey…………. It’s everywhere .
Life's too short for the colour grey.
It is :-)
I would go over the orange walls with white while you are doing the ceiling to ensure a good cover for whatever you decide on for the walls
I'll give you the same advice as i've always given to my customers. Pick your own colour scheme. You're the one that has to live with it.
You really need to think of the colour palette you want, but I think we need to get rid of those bright orange walls as soon as possible ;-)

I have gone varying shades of grey in master bedroom. The room is not yet complete so I can't give you an idea of the finished result, but when I am reunited with my phone I can post a pic of the bedroom in my old house.

In our spare bedroom I'm going duck egg and beige / taupe.

Orange upholstered furniture in a burnt orange shade would look striking against a rich teal backdrop but orange walls really are an offence upon the senses.
Get a few testers as the paint can look different in yur particular light. Also paint the orange will with a cheap contract white as suggested otherwise your chosen colour will not come out true. I agree with others, total grey is depressing for a bedroom unless highlighted with vivid colours. You have a grey carpet so a nice tranquil dawn, with its greeny grey should blend in well with the curtains and carpets.
Let's just see if this works from my laptop:

Some people like all-grey, some like to add some accent colours with lamps, cushions, etc.
Too chavvy chic for most tastes that.
