Hello! I've just had a new kitchen fitted and the units are called sage green but actually they are a bit pepperminty...as in the green is a blue tinge rather than a yellowy one. I need a pale colour to go on the walls and was thinking cream, but it would need to be one that is bluey/greyey toned rather than yellowy cream. Anyone know a nice one? I'm not brave enough to go with grey itself. Or maybe a beigey colour....? Help!
Never thought of apricot! The work surfaces are oak, and the floor a pale stone-look Amtico. I wonder though if something earthy might be too dark for the room. It's had two coats of white over the bare plaster, but that looks too stark and bleak so far.
I would stick with a white personally. Apricot would look dated I think. The colour wheel thing has always bemused me tbh I have never used it for any design scheme. Go for a white shade and try a few testers.Def stay grey not yellow/cream.
I've got some farrow and ball Lime White left over from our bedroom, and painted a bit near the kitchen cabinets. It's the right sort of colour but too dark. Will have to get a F and B colour chart to see what is like it but lighter. Then I can check out the suggestions above too, thanks. Wondering if we need a special kitchen paint though...
I have peppermint blue [dix blue colour match ] on my dining room chairs with strong white on the walls and skimming stone and elephants breath on the units.All of these colours go with blue/green.I have colour matched them all with Dulux Diamond matte emulsion or eggshell as i wanted a really hard-wearing finish [as have 4 dc's and new puppy and lots of visitors!].I am really happy with the colours and finish [no different to f&b modern emulsion and colour 'complexity' is still the same.
I know,but the colours and names are so appealing and instantly recognisable as being F&B.The other heritage paint ranges i can't take to as either the colours are not as nice,or there are too many colours or the website is muddled.I hope you find the colour that you need.
