    I have just bought a new duvet cover set for my bed.. It's black with a wide panel of white flowers down one side.The reverse is kinda blue/grey with the flowers. I looked for a pic but cant find one.

    Anyway, what colour can I paint one wall in my new bedroom that will go well??

    I'd also like a kinda dark purle bed cover (of course you need more than one Lol!)

    I was going to leave the painting until we moved... but I will have all day tomorrow and saturday to go in and clean, so I might as well start painting while there's nothing in the way!

    I like creams and whites for walls coz then you can change the decor easily with the soft furnishings. Oh, and if you use kitchen and bathroom paint its dog and kid proof too!:thumbup:

    What about Duck Egg Blue on main wall where your headboard is and then white on other walls, you can break up the white walls with pic's.
    Or Aurbegne main wall with white other walls, this colour will also go with black, so get some floating shelves and put one black vase with Aurbegene flower in it and put it on the shelf onthe white wall.
    I got a big throw for my bedroom that matches the curtains and bedding, so when I wash the duvet I still have the throw in matching colour on the bed.

    True. But, although I prefer red, I do like the occasional glass of Chardonnay from time to time! :thumbup:

    our bedroom in our old house was my favourite, 3 white walls and one black one, with all black furniture and damask style decor.

    Large Southern Comfort in a steady glass for me. One chunk of ice. Summer is here and the Absinthe is stored carefully away awaiting the return of Autumn. Well you have to something to keep you warm on the long cold darkening days leading into winter. Then, as the temperatures plummet even further, we'll break out the the anti-freeze! ;)

    With the other cream walls, and the colours of soft furnishings you described, I would go with a colour made by Dulux called "Chalk Blush" - it's a very warm grey and would go well with all of the colours you've named.

    Anything grey might sound dull - but trust me...grab a tester pot at B&Q (£3) and give this particular shade a go behind your bed. I think you'll really like it with your colour scheme. ;)

    Using Dulux Chalk Blush 3
