The MN Home Decoration crew were so helpful with my last paint colour question, I am back for seconds!
We're having our small-but-bright study decorated in a few weeks time. I will be having an accent wall in Dulux Sapphire Salute, which is a lovely, deep blue (very very similar to Drawing Room Blue, for the Farrow & Ball fans). It has been chosen to compliment a piece of artwork that will hang in the room, and I'm confident it will work well.
My dilemma is what to do in the rest of the room. Woodwork and ceiling will definitely be white, but I don't know what to do with the rest of the walls. I'm torn between going for plain white on those too, or whether to go for something a bit softer and warmer, like Wimborne White or Strong White.
As I said, it is a lovely, bright room, but it is fairly small, and there will be a greige-y neutral carpet on the floor.
Not really, unfortunately - the artwork in question is largely in primary colours so if I go for one of the other shades, I think it will look a bit playschool. That's why I think the other walls need to be neutral. I'm just worried that having the whole rest of the room in pure brilliant white will be too stark a contrast.
That said, I might well go for a mustard yellow blind at the window
Gah! Why have Dulux stopped doing their online samples??? They all say 'in store only', which is a faff because either you have to take whatever they have (never what you actually want) or spend ages getting staff to make up sample pots.
And I was all set to order Timeless and dupes for Wimbourne White and Strong White. Humph.
NapQueen it's such a great colour, I'm sure it will look stunning! I don't want to go quite so full on though - it's a very bright room and I want to preserve that, while injecting a bit more personality than it currently has.
I'm pretty sure I'm going to go for Piano White (now that I've got some samples on the wall), which is an off-white, very similar to Wimbourne White. It looks lovely.
