We're renovating and the people who are refurbishing our sash windows need a decision now about what colour to paint the insides. We haven't even started the rest of the house yet, as the windows are being done first. I sort of thought that decisions about colour could wait a bit, but it seems not...
Anyway, I really need some suggestions for neutral colours that look good on paintwork. We currently have F&B new white www.farrow-ball.com/new-white/colours//fcp-product/100059, which is lovely but it was on the walls and paintwork when we got here six years ago, and I fancy a change. I find it a little too creamy/yellow.
We haven't really decided what colours to go for for interiors, so something fairly neutral would be good. I'm drawn to sagey greens and grey-blues so we'll probably go for those sort of colours.
Probably F&B colours or similar (though we might get cheaper versions for the walls).
What nice whites would work well on window frames and paintwork? What do you have? (Our house is 1880, lots of oak).
I love sagey greens and grey blues. My house had natural dark wood, sagey greens and grey blues for walls, with a clean white (no trace of grey or yellow) where the wood was painted (some windows, and the wainscoting). I recommend having some of the wood stripped and stained medium-dark if you can and if there's a chance it's old wood.
