I've got it into my head that the sitting room in our house needs to be painted but the room is going to be converted into a kitchen in about eighteen months so it's a chance to do a colour I wouldn't normally do.
Except me, this is an all male household and generally I'm not that into pink but I thought I'd have a pink room once and just see. We'll only have to live with it for a short while - but OTOH, we will need to live with it.
I'm not a 'fun' or 'contemporary' decorator so I'm keen to avoid garishness. But subtle tastefulness is also a waste of opportunity. I can't be bothered with Hint of Pink.
This time, there will be no off white! My default setting is white. I will break free!
In two years time the room will be back to white (I think) but for now I'm trying to push my boundaries. If I can only find the right shade. I've put all the F&B's on the wall but still nothing grabs me.
Noddy, do you have one you can recommend? Also, I've been trying to remember the range you recommended on another thread last week - begining with 'M' I think(?)
I like the white wood work. I've just been and looked at all the samples on my wall and was wondering if I could tone the wood work to make the F&B ones better but think I'll get the visual maths wrong.
I'd like a strong colour, but not necessarily a bright colour. (Does that even make sense?!)
They have a very dense finish I think they are the most matt you can buy off the shelf.Chalky and high pigment I love pink in an old house doesn't really work anywhere else without looking somehow wrong. That blush is lovely Goes well with white and natural stone/linen type colours
Ooooh, Malabar samples arrived. Waiting for them to dry but they do look good. Not as dark as in the web pictures so I phoned the company and they were lovely and are sending me out some chips.
Rosa is now the front runner (although may still be too blueish for what I need) but Blush is fab and I'm going to have to think of somewhere in the house to put it. It's a pink/white but intense IYSWIM.
