Fifty shades of bloody grey

I've decided on a whim that I want to paint the bathroom, which currently has a pale blue marnoleum floor, and a white suite. I'm wanting a warm pale shade of grey, any good ones around? Wondered about slipper satin or cornforth white (f&b) or open to suggestions. We are north facing if that helps......

no idea what it was called but I found a nice one in Wilkinson's own range last year when we were looking for our bathroom - I ended up going with a sage green colour instead but if I remember right it was a soft pale grey - might be worth a look

Cornforth is lovely-- soft and warm. We had this in our old place. We've just pained our new sitting room in Strong White which has a similar tone to cornforth but is ligher.

We have just painted some cupboards in Cornforth White and am very pleased. Its a soft grey. very pleased.

I have conforth white on my living room walls and its a really beautiful colour, I'm really happy with it.

We looked at a lot of f&b greys for our living room walls, but finally decided on a crown paint, gallery white, which is a pale chalky grey

I thought this was going to be a thread about a Red Room of Pain...

Fraid not Mardybra, wrong topic.

This is probably not cool, but as I had a voucher (!) I needed to get my paint from B&Q so I took my Little Green paint card in to the shop - the French Grey is a perfect match to the B&Q 'Light Rain' Kitchen & Bathroom paint, it is own brand but seems great stuff and only £18 a 2.5 litre tub!!! Comes in a Matt finish too. Makes up for all the other kitchen accessories I'm planning on :D
