(8 Posts)

So I have pretty much decided on my F&B colours for my living room and have tested the samples. Having pitch blue on the chimney breast and rectory red in the alcove bookshelves (and no rude comments about feature walls ok, I like it), and all white on the woodwork (including book shelves). i have tried cornforth white on the rest of the walls, but it looks too grey and dark. Any suggestions for another neutral to go with these colours?

And just realised I should have put advice in the title, doh!

Hmmmm. How about Off-White or Slipper Satin?

Blackened, it's a very pretty pale grey, and imo a really good foil for other colours.

Pointing is good and goes with most colours as a neutral white. Is quite warm and works well IMO (only because I have it throughout my house!)

Slipper satin. I have slipper satin, everybody should have slipper satin.

I've used slipper satin, dimity, pointing, tallow, clunch... all lovely. I would say slipper satin prob best with your other choices.

I love the idea of blackened but am always nervous about greys <needs to be braver>.

I've used blackened on my bedroom floor and doesn't seem to grey, more blue. Bbut don't if that's because of the gloss finish, plus the room faces south rather than north like my living room. Slipper satin looks good as well.
