Totally boring post but I'm in tester hell here. I'm looking for a light neutral colour for my small, north facing living room. Needs to be dulux. It's currently white (new build) so every tester I paint looks really dark in comparison.

I've tried Egyptian cotton, which I like but I'm worried it's too grey for my cream carpet and brown furniture, natural hessian which looks too pink, almond white, which is too yellow and nutmeg white which is too purply. I'm now thinking I should try natural calico, but is that too pale? It looks so boring on the chart!

Any ideas? I'm also 37 weeks pregnant so am worried I'm going to make a horrible baby-brained decision...

My mum has her entire downstairs and hall stairs and landing in Just Walnut and I really like it. Her ground floor is open plan and faces both north and south as a result. The colour looks good.
