So we are getting underway with our renovations in the next few weeks I'm a bit but too lol.
the playroom is fine (but I will be asking for help with flooring in a few months) but we are having a conservatory too, so need decorating help please!!! its classes as a conservatory as there's a few % more window but there's a lot of brick too so we do have a good bit to decorate iykwim.
those with conservatories what flooring do you have? I want it really bright as its going to be our 'family room'
im having the blinds that are in the window if that makes senses
i just want normal couches, not the wicker stuff.
My h is mr white and is getting all twitchy about having to use any form of colour so Id rather just say to him we are having this and this and buy it rather than having too get his opinion. He likes white and white only
Ideas please Xx

Do you want bright as in primary colours or bright as in light walls so the room is light and airy? Pale green or blue are good colours to go with, I like white but keeping it white is a nightmare especially in a family room.

I think I just want it colourful as the rest of our house is literally white or cream
Pale green sounds nice,
I might have to go and get some testers as iv never been allowed colour before

It's the only way to do it.

my h is a tiler so it would have to be a tiled floor for us.
it depends on you really. i know that H is Mr white...but what are you. are you Mrs Flaming Orange or Mrs ooo magnolias nice and its not white.
my house is as follows (i'm doing it at the moment too)
Kitchen : Pale blue walls with cream stone tiles. Pale blue always sounds quite a cold colour but it can be quite a warm colour in the right surround. could be nice in a conservatory with the furniture being light..althoguht not exactly practial with kiddiwink.
Living room - at the moment, 1 wall is magnolia, 1 wall is picnic basket (brown) and the 2 end walls have branch paper in cream & brown. This is being changes to 1 red wall & 3 putty kind of colour walls.
Hall stairs and landing - were (until tuesday) Magnolia. now they are 'soft stone'. my hall stairs andlanding is quite a dark space. it doesnt matter how light the walls are...its stilla dark space. so we went with a nice warm colour.
bedroom 1 - our bedroom - is a really light airy room & is done in a nutmeg white (off greyey white).
Bedroom 2 - nursery - is done in pale orange on 1 wall, pale green on 2 walls & then owl wall paper on the final wall...not exactly conservatory like.
Bedroom 3 - i'm painting it blossom white. its a small room with not much light in but want to it be nice airy & calm as this is the guest room.
the bathroom is obviously tiled top to bottom.
if your hubs is scared of colouir, the dulex accents range (which is where the blossom white is from) do quite nice tints that are definately not white. you can then accesorize brightly :)
Wow thats a long post! sorry to have bored you...but i love DIY

We've got a green accent wall in our bedroom which is approximately the colour of Mumdrum. The room is light and bright so can take a strong colour, doesn't make it too dark (for a white only fan!).
Alternatively you could go for brightly coloured sofas to bring colour into the room.

We have a pale green colour in our living room which is Dulux melon sorbet, along with oak coloured Karndean flooring. I think that would be nice in a conservatory.
My friend has a conservatory and her colours are duck egg blue and shades of brown which is also lovely.
