Thanks for the advice - think I am going to live with it for a bit & choose accessories that will go with other colours too in case I decide to re-paint in the future plus can't face going thru the pain of a million grey tester pots again!!!
my room is greyish green i have a dark wood floor,dark wood furniture. white woodwork black leather sofas black cast iron fireplace it looks quite masculine ,you need to look on pin interest or online /mags for a mood board ,to work out what you like and build on it
We have ordered white wooden slatted blinds that r being put up in the new year.
We currently have orangey-red carpet, yellowey-cream curtains and 1 cream sofa all of which we inherited from the previous owners and are all going for sure. We also have a red sofa from our old house which will go into the playroom. These r all not working at all with the lilac-grey walls - especially the carpet!!!
We were thinking of getting that vinyl flooring that looks like wood (like karndean/camaro) in a medium oak colour, but not ordered yet.
We have a cream stone dining table with chocolate brown leather chairs which is staying coz it was expensive, so not sure whether we should get a chocolate brown leather sofa to blend with that or not.
I want a modern, smart look. We might need to sell the house next year so I want a look that is also inoffensive.
it looks more lilac on my screen, if your like me and it will bug you repaint it now,if your easy going and its a good paint job then leave it and work around it. what colour sofa ect have you got? what flooring? do you want a soft look or dramatic?
I have just spent a fortune having my adjoining lounge & dining room painted in dulux heritage crystal grey. www.dulux.co.uk/colour/crystal_grey I thought it was going to be a lovely soft warm grey, and it is, but now it is finished it also looks quite lilac. What are people's thoughts on having a lilacish-grey lounge & dining room? Is this a good colour? Is it relaxing or does it look like a girl's bedroom? Can I make it look more sophisticated grey with appropriate coloured sofa/flooring/curtains/accessories etc, or should I just bite the bullet now & get it re-painted a more true grey colour?
