Q: I’ve been thinking on what color to paint my walls. I love pastel colors, but I don’t know what suits our space. Ours is a 50-sqm, two-storey house. Can you please help me? – Celin Hiwatig Mendoza via Facebook 

A: Pastels can brighten up any small, dark space, but I would suggest you go with something along the lines of blues and greens. I find that yellow can turn dull after some time, and pinks and peaches seem a bit dated.
