Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen has long been a champion of rich colours in the home. Now a Littlewoods survey claims to show that if you paint your bedroom purple you are likely to be twice as …er… active there, than if you paint it neutral shades like beige and grey.

Llewelyn-Bowen said: “For years I have been telling British homeowners, a beige bedroom makes for a beige sex life…The sexiest combination would be purple walls, lilac silk sheets and a violet duvet cover.”

If Purple isn’t your thing, then what about red? Think of the well-known paint brand advert with the young couple producing so many children they have to repaint their red bedroom white? Well the same survey backs up this scenario showing that red is the next most sexy colour.

So if you want to put a little colour into your love life, why not break open the luscious paint and go for a change of scene?
