Wonderful people who know such things - I'm looking for a grey/silvery paint for my shower room - it's just for two walls the rest of the room is while tiles. The floor has silver specks in and id like a colour that compliments that.

It's not a massive room, the walls are opposite the window that is in there - it gets ok light but the window looks out over the tenement bit of the house.

Any ideas?!

Just a hopeful bump...

Farrow and ball blackened. (Or colour matched!!)
We have a gorgeous one in our bathroom as well but I can't remember what it is. I'll ask DH

We got one from b&q and I think it's their own colour called Fog. Lovely light grey and they do it for bathrooms I think. We cleared out 3 stores of the colour as it's painted throughout the entire house.

Ooo Thank you both!! I will have a look.
Bloody bathroom has taken so long I've started to hate it and want to love it again.

If your looking for a silvery grey homebase own brand has one called Silver Mist, it comes in matt, silk, bathroom and kitchen. The 2 pictures are of my ensuite in the bathroom finish. I took them in the darkest places so you could get a getter idea of the colour.

I really like Egyptian Cotton

You are all wonderful!

I have just come home with pearl grey from wilko's - but that one from home base could have been a winner otherwise!!

I forgot when I was testing colours for the hallway I had tried the pearl grey and liked it but decided not for the hall as too much in one place! Tried the tester this morning and it's very close to the flooring.

Let the painting commence! Thank you all

Farrow and ball pavilion gray is stunning in all lights. For something cheaper, dulux pebble something is excellent and doesn't have that cheap paint lack of depth look to it.

Beautiful colour recommendations - shamelessly placemarking!
