 XN.02.78 on walls with A3.20.13 basket, both €53.99 for 5 litres, Dulux

Have you checked our previous paint personality posts? Maybe you're a vamp or perhaps you're rather more cool, calm and collected?  There's more than two ways to go paint-wise though, and today's diagnosis colour is for the romantic. This is you if girly, pretty shades are the ideal backdrop for your lace and primrose sensibilities. Pretty vintage china pastels, baby boy blues and bouquet hues surround you as you await your Mr Darcy...

Above, escape with these beautifully girly hues which are guaranteed to lift any room. To add that little extra lighthearted feel, accent with simple white features. Use XN.02.78 walls with A3.20.13 basket, both €53.99 for 5 litres, Dulux, www.dulux.ie
