I need a not crazy expensive white paint for a predominately E/W facing house. It gets great light, huge rooms, but can feel cold in the mornings. I have Dulux Timeless in the current house but it feels very magnolia where there's not much light. Is there anything less yellow? I love the look of Milk White by Crown but I'm told the quality is really poor.
VERY good point. Ok so normally woodwork is lighter, right, so I got that wrong, so what do I go for, brilliant white? I think currently we have f&b wevet (but that's against strong white which is grey).
I am liking this thread. What does everyone think of Dulux Rock Salt as a less yellow white than Timeless (which we've used to death in previous home) to go with this John Lewis Persia Smoke wallpaper.
We've just used testers in our hall (which doesn't get much natural light). We found Timeless and Jasmine White to be virtually identical - the latter is a little yellower. The one that stood out was Morning Glory, which is one of those Light and Space paints by Dulux to make small spaces look bigger - it was a bright white without looking cold. Might not be suitable for the whole house but possibly worth a look?
And yes, they all look weird on the Dulux website.
So I'm actually painting this week, well, the decorator is. He's doing slipper satin in bedrooms to keep them cosy, but it's a bit dark for living/dining through room. I'd made my mind up on Wimborne white (or a Johnstones copy of), but DH is already complaining that the slipper satin 'looks cream'.
Question- is the Wimborne white going to be too cream? Room is E/W aspect, good light. Should I go with the Dulux white cotton, or F&B All White???
