Pale grey paint recommendations for hallway/stairs

After watching The Ice cream Girls on catch up yesterday I have decided that the hallway needs to be light grey. If anyone has seen it, Serena's mothers house has a light grey hall and it looked stunning.

Now our house is about half the size and not nearly as gorgeous but it does have a similar hallway and it is very light as it has a really big cupola at the top. Can anyone recommend a pale grey paint? I really don't want to have to go and spend a fortune on testers.

I can also foresee difficulties with negotiation of this idea with DP, so decision needs to be made with minimum fuss grin

ooh, I love the dulux polished pebble. We are having that for the living room. We have just used wilko's own cheapskate in pearl grey for our hallway, it isn't finished yet but its a lovely colour. theres a hint of lavender to it that warms up the greyness.

Ah, you see that makes me swerve towards polished pebble iclaudius, I love pale blue but in the hall I want grey, light grey, pale grey, grey, not blue. Though they do actually look identical so perhaps they are both feking light blue grin

Polished Pebble is quite definitely grey. I have it next to blue lagoon in my lounge, so a real blue-green and I have a white and silver wallpaper in my hall - it would be obvious if it was blue. It's grey grin

Another one here with Polished Pebble in the living room. Not a hint of blue in it, looks seriously classy (if I do say so myself!).

Dulux smoulder is a bit darker but a gorgeous warm grey. Have it in my hall and love it.

I now this is an old thread but i am desperate for uk based paint advice doesn't seem to be many site offering any! i am after a sort of light mocha/milk choc vibe for my lounge, it needs lightening and warming at the same time, really struggling. i have looked at dulux soft stone - little worried itl be pinky same with crown hare, dulux malt choc and gentle fawn, hessian looks like it may be a little yellowy which the room seems to have a yellowy vibe already lighting wise. quite like soft truffle but looks quite dark. dusted cappuccino looks possible but cant find a tester for it anywhere. Please help, much appreciated. thanks smile
