What colour is your bedroom?

I'm thinking about doing some painting today but can't decide. I'm thinking about a really dark purple or navy blue. I have a range of different linens so I'm not looking to match anything in particular.

Please no white/beige/neutral replies! I hate neutral and our house is currently a range of different colours. Tounge1.gif

a bright minty/apple green.  I also loathe neutrals, and this is light without being boring.

Please exscuse the terrible lighting.

I have a lovely green called "simply sage". I like a calming colour in bedrooms, and nothing too dark which can make a room feel small.

The main bedroom in my old house was painted a blue similar to this and it was gorgeous!  I'm thinking of doing the same in my current house!



From here.

I like green too and that was my original choice for the main bedroom but I have a light (probably a little bit too light) lilac colour for the wall behind my bed.

Prussian Blue

A lovely deep smooth dark blue.  We have it as a feature wall in all of our bedrooms because I love it so much!

In my old house I'd painted all 4 walls of my bedroom Red Box ( a vivid red) with bright white glossy trims. Looked great. I had 12 foot ceilings so it was pretty striking. Curtains were a neutral beige and gold. Bed linen was usually all white. I had lots and lots of old framed painting on my walls and was sort of going for an art-gallery vibe LOL original.gif I loved that room though, I'm not a fan of neutral rooms at all.

Our bedroom has a "Tiffany's" colour feature wall, with glass bedsides and silver/teal and black linens - I love it! The colour is not too dark, but definitely a stand out feature.

I'm a huge fan of navy/indigo/dark teal/dark grey in bedrooms. I like a moody bedroom! Mine is still white after a year and it's driving me batty, but I still haven't decided (or negotiated with DH) what colour to paint it.

We have a fairly bright teal colour in our room and I have been surprised over the years how many other colours (in bed linen, etc) match it beautifully.

We have the same but it's on all walls.  

Mind you, we have a massive window and straight opposite the build in robe mirrored doors with a white on white ensuite so there isn't much wall on the other three sides of the feature wall.

It's so relaxing.

I have a beige room, but I'm loving the beautiful, soft mint greens that seem to be popping up everywhere at the moment. I find them so nice and calming (but they can still be quite vibrant).

Our is a deep burgundy red at the moment. I love it, it is very dramatic, however I would like to try a lighter shade (green or cream) in the next few years.
