Has anyone got any ideas what colour I should paint my bedroom, that will go with pale pink bedding and curtains? I was looking at a very pale pink from Dulux (Blossom white), but am not sure if this will be too much pink. Any ideas? This is the bedding:

It depends on the look you want. Dusty pink might work or even a very pale lilac. I've always loved grey with pink.
My mother used a trick once and I've used it many times and it is so simple as to be hard to believe!
She painted the walls an off-white color. Then when she decorated the room the drapes she hung were the color that she wanted the walls to be. For instance, in my brother's room she hung blue drapes. The sun coming thru the drapes cast a blue tint to the entire room, including the walls!
In my room she did the same with pink. My walls had a nice pink color to them, simply from the sun shining thru the drapes!
Very pretty bedding. I would like the taupe or sage green.
I'm a big fan of sage, or in this case you could do a deeper pink
I think a pale taupe would look nice.
Pale sage green.
Soft white color.
I wouldn't do all pink though. Lots of clashing could go on.
If you can post a picture of your bedroom with the color paint you finally choose, love to see your results!
From the picture of the bedding and the walls and throw rug, white is a good choice since your room is dark. White is clean, crisp and brightens a room.
You could add the darker pink using accent pillows, picture frame or throw rug or several picture frames using each of the colors in the bedding or a lamp and other decorations that tie the colors together.
Also, with the pink and white, you could use a bit of teal green accessories for "zing" and that would break up the pink flow.

Pale pink would go well the bedding, so would white.

I have a pink and chocolate brown polka dot bedding. What color can I paint my walls, something that suits a teen?
