Agh! Mid paint job and hate the colour - how about All White?

So I wanted a grey bedroom. It's a very very light bedroom - four big windows. I wanted a light grey on walls and woodwork and old built in cupboards, and painted a big chest of drawers Downpipe for contrast. We have stripped floorboards.

But the grey I picked - like Blackened, but a Little Greene colour called Shallows - is SO blue on two of the walls. Where there is no light it's very pleasant. But I hate the blue undertones.

So I'm going to do just white. Has anyone used All White? Will it be too bright with lots of light? And contrast too harshly with the chest?

All white is really just... white. I think it could look ok if you like strong contrasts.

How about Little Greene French Grey Pale? We have it in our bedroom and love it.

Cornforth White should go well with Downpipe, and I can't see any blue undertones in our wall.

But then we have it next to light blue, so maybe that detracts from any blue effect?!?

I love jasmine white. Bright but not too white. I can never get colours right so tend to go light on the walls and dress colour in via assessories and a feature wall.

Try F&B Ammonite. It has warm undertones.
