A grey that has more of a hint of stone to it

Basically that's what I am after. The woodwork doesn't actually need doing but it is painted in a pale cream. I'd like to go with a grey which personally I'd do with white woodwork but we are tarting a flat up to sell and would rather just paint the walls.

It is a period conversion so the woodwork includes picture rails, skirting, doors etc so is quite noticeable.

I therefore think a "greige" is what I need rather than a cooler grey which I assume wouldn't go with cream.

Any suggestions and any pictures. My decorator prefers to use Dulux but they'll colour mix other brands for him.

Or Elephants breath actually, elephants is more the grey end and dropcloth is more the stone end but both have a bit of the other in between...if that makes sense hmm

Thanks everyone

Going to get some testers.

Misty Mountain front runner at the moment as I want it to pack a bit of a punch and Elephant's Breath may be a bit pale

Paint & Paper Library has loads that would match this description. They do every colour in 5 "depths" so you can easily go lighter or deeper. Try the Slate range.

I have Elephant's Breath in my sitting room and its definitely not a grey - more of a mushroom / beige colour.

I have Egyptian Cotton on the walls for the hall stairs and landing and I think thats a pale beige too - no hint of grey.

Sorry, I realise thats no help at all!

Dulux Egyptian cotton is definitely Griege. Have it in living room and our bedroom.
