Most people would still prefer to paint a baby girl's room pink and baby boy's room blue, according to new research from YouGov.

The poll, which was carried out in February of this year, asked people what their favourite colours were and if they preferred pink to blue before asking which colours they would choose to paint a baby's room.

The survey demonstrated that 46 per cent would choose blue for a boy's room whilst 37 per cent would paint a girl's room pink.

Yellow and white came out as gender neutral colours, with between 13 and 20 percent of people choosing each for both sexes.

The research examined just over 1500 adults from the UK.

Those questioned were from across the country; regions included London, Scotland, Midlands, Wales, the North and Scotland.
