My daughter wants a pink bedroom. Can you advise on a colour palette that will last her past the Barbie stage? Emma, via email

“Pink can offer warmth to a room without being too overpowering,” says Jessica Plateo, product manager at British Paints. “Try softer shades, such as British Paints’ Soft Marshmallow and Gentle Kiss. These will give her the pink she wants while still being on-trend. Pair these with pastels like powdery blue and green – I love British Paints’ Pure Mint or Bilko Blue for this look. For a modern palette, try a warm white like British Paints’ Love Note.
