Question
I want to decorate my bedroom, but have no idea what would look good, I have pine furniture and I would like to have something along the lines of coffee and cream or something nice, calm and relaxing, also, what colour carpet would go or could I have laminate flooring etc!!  

Answer
Fiona,

Thanks for writing.

With pine furniture, more warm tone colors seem to work best. Try an olive green, taupe, or maroon. You can also just paint one accent wall then have the others be a taupe or cream (neutral color). With pine you may want to stay away from real light and bright color such as yellow and also pasel colors. The pine will show off best with a deap color.

As far as flooring, wood is always a nice touch. It just depends on how much of it you want sense you have wood furniture. Also a natrual jut or sisle carpeting would look excellent with the pine!

Good luck.
