We are going to decorate our conservatory soon.
It's currently terracotta 😱 and its time for a change.
We are having new blinds, rug, furniture too.
I rely like the idea of a soothing mid grey...any recommendations or ones to avoid?

Farrow and ball pavilion grey... I have this in my bathroom. Lovely paint.

Urban Obsession. Maybe a bit dark for you, though. I've got in in my conservatory.

Oooh I like the dulux one!
The f&b one looks a bit Brown to me?

Duluth warm pewter is a lovely warm grey , good midway between chic shadow and urban obsession (which I loved but worried may be too dark!) I love it is really cosy. Accessorised with black and white and some darker grey curtains.

Chic Shadow is nice, but presumably your conservatory is very light? I think Chic Shadow would disappear.

I've got a colour called Perfectly Taupe all over my house. It's a very light grey with a hint of lilac.

I love greysmile

Another vote for Pavilion Grey it is beautiful. F&B paint is a bit thin though.

I have Pavilion Grey in my bathroom, with Strong White. it's a good combination.
If you want paler than pavilion but more colour than Strong, Blackened is a nice choice.

Farrow and ball Carnforth. I tried 5 or 6 greys from them and others, came down to this one, dark enough to be grey, not so dark as to be gloomy
