Prefer something a bit more modern.

Photos of the walls would be nice too.

The common thing people seem to do is have a 'feature wall' which is a bold colour and the other walls are more neutral, particularly in family rooms such as the living room.

To be honest my idea of decorated is magnolia and/or white on every wall and room, but my missus isn't having any of it.

So, the amount I've helped you - zero. :p

Unfortunately not, or non I can post anyway. Don't go for anything to bold, that is so yesterday. Grey/White looks nice and clean.

Did you manage to sort out the flat tyres on the Bentley hari? :|

We've always preferred to go with neutral for walls and carpets and add colour to rooms with the furnishings and curtains.
Neutral certainly does seem to help when selling. At the moment the walls are mostly a colour called 'picket fence' which is a B&Q paint.

Just give it a fresh coat of magnolia, you can not go wrong, looks modern and clean. I have just gone magnolia and white in my new home, every room was originaly different colour, now my bungalow looks so much brighter and cleaner.

Feature walls are a decent idea,but rather than paint you could go with wallpaper.

Laura Ashley has a lot of decent options that you can match with the walls you already have, but the pattern just livens everything up.

I'm in the process of doing my place up! Everything was magnolia when I moved in a year ago and it was DISGUSTING. Do not use magnolia, it's an awful colour, dated and not fashionable at all in my humble opinion! I've opted for a lot of white, a lighter 'silvery' grey colour, and then a much darker grey as a feature wall in each of my bedrooms. I wouldn't go with wallpaper because it's a pain to a) apply and b) get rid of afterwards, plus most patterns I've seen are flowery and look ridiculous! I can't recommend Johnstones paint enough - do NOT buy Dulux! It's really bad, cheap paint. Johnstones paint is more like a trade paint, and also a lot cheaper than Dulux, so makes sense to use it. I've used it throughout my house and have no complaints so far. I'm knocking down some walls etc and having new kitchens, bathrooms and everything fitted in, so all of these are going to be black/white, gloss cupboards etc in the kitchen, and I have black/white gloss furniture everywhere. I wanna sell mine ASAP so wanted something that would appeal to the vast majority of people! :)

There's absolutely nothing wrong with Dulux paints. Used them on several properties and they're great.

Laura Ashley or Farrow and Ball for the best quality paints.

Agreed on the farrow and ball, best you can get in my opinion, but the Laura Ashley paints have been atrocious in my experience. Tried them twice and in both cases had to redo the rooms using dulux.

We have had that for the last three years, but its because we had the walls all replastered when we moved in and with kids it is murder to keep clean the walls are full of splashes and hand prints etc.. always washing the damn walls.

I have to agree with HEAWD(SHOCK HORROR :p) Dulux might need 2 coats but its very easy to go on and durable paint.

I had Garfield wallpaper until I was 16 oO. I then painted my walls lime green, and my skirting boards black. That was actually awesome, but can't convince the OH on that one.

We generally do the same. White walls with coloured woodwork can also work if you pick the right colour.

Never liked magnolia, the student landord's colour of choice.

Really? I'd put them up there with Farrow and Ball in terms of good, even coverage and they're remarkably good value. Maybe it depends on the range you were using.
