Currently have 'Lamp Room Grey' in my hall but would like to 'warm' it up a bit perhaps with a brown/grey paint but still not too dark. Dont want stone as they tend to be a bit pinky. Any ideas please. Doesnt have to be F and B. Many thanks.

Look at the Little Green, French Grey family of colours (4 in total) they get browner grey as they get darker, and start much lighter than lamp room grey.

I just had the nursery painted in Blackened - it's a lovely warm grey but you wouldn't know it by looking at the F&B website.

We have used Elephant's Breath in the bedroom - F&B. It's a mid-grey and very warm. Love it. Get a tester pot.

We also had Muddy Puddle in the living room in the last house, which is by Dulux (I think). It's not grey - more a brown with grey tones, but it's lovely and warm

We've just painted our kitchen in dulux dusted moss 3. It's a warm, greeny-grey. It looks lovely.

I'm another fan of Dulux Trade Dusted Moss. See the painful process we went through to get to it here.
Hope that helps!

Also try Dulux Timeless Classics Thimble Case.

I wanted that.
We went for Duluz Quartz Flint.
It looks a very pale blue up. Initially I was disappointed, but now I quite like it. But grey it isn't.
So don't go for that!

Dulux chalky downs 2 or 3
