Burford Grey kitchen - help me with wall colour!

I know a few on here have got this kitchen.

We have got oak worktops and a limestone coloured floor. The range and hood are cream and I think we're having pale grey metro tiles, about 3 rows.

I have tried F&B James White (too yellow) and Strong White (looks wrong, almost lilac).

I want a F&B colour, nearest stockist is miles away, I could do without buying loads of testers!

Anyone got any recommendations?

Shaded white - a pale olive grey, or grey olive! Or slipper satin.

If you are having grey tiles limestone floor and the burford grey units I would steer clear of too strong a white from F and B as there will be too many shades.Have you thought about really light Wimborne is lovely just takes the cold edge off but still very crisp

Just looked up what the kitchen looks like. I can't believe how bland and dull that looks. I'd paint the whole flipping lot, not just the walls. And, for pity's sake, no more bloody grey. On the other hand, when I was suffering from depression, at least I would have known what was causing it!

I went to a house with on orange hi-gloss kitchen.

Now that was depressing.

I have now covered walls in samples which dh says are all the same hmm.

I think Wimborne White is the winner, thanks Noddy.

smile I am about to start another project and will be using it with grey

Noddy, I bow to your expertise.

Metro tiles. Talk to me.

Should I go for pale grey? I have a cream sample but it's too much with range in cream. I have yet to find any in a pale grey but I just thought it might look good as kitchen units are grey.

We were going to have no tiles, but changed our minds. Then we were going to have a splashback, but decided they're naff. I want something non bold.

I don't like splash backs at all either I like the metro tiles they are classic esp in paler colours. I am thinking of having a very pale vintage pink with grey units and a dark grey floor.

That sounds lovely.

We went for limestone floor as it was the one that showed muddy dog footprints the least out of all the samples we had. It does look lovely now it's laid and we've got it in the hall, downstairs loo & utility room so it has opened everything up.

I didn't want dark as it's a 400 year old house with low ceilings, although I love a dark floor.

Can you recommend any tile stockists? I am liking the sound of pale pink. We had lovely 'water colour' looking grey tiles in our old kitchen, but non-metro.
