I need some inspiration. Being replastered this week and then we need to paint ASAP as DS2 is due in a few weeks.

I like the idea of a grey/sagey green/off white, but obviously not all together grin.

I wanted Natural Hessian after a thread on here but it was a bit dark - dp is currently painting it in Natural Wicker.

Skimming stone which is slightly darker than slipper satin -what we painted the study, utility and cloakroom in. Sitting room is Blue gray which is actually More green but it's a beautiful colour!

Is big room though with white floor and lots of doors.

Have gone for red highlights with soft furnishings and in pictures.

We have f and b cornforth white, I bloody love it. Not in the
Estate emulsion though, that was bad advice by the shop salesman hmm
It looks almost an oystery pinky colour in certain light.
Dark Victorian hallway here too. We have deep red stripey runner up the stairs and a black and white check Minton floor.

Really liked jasmine white and found a b&q velspar version that is grey vs green. Gone on today and it looks great - pleased we didn't go any darker (plus realised that we're wimps re:colour!).

Will post up pics once dh has painted woodwork and we get new carpet down.

Mme- I may be being stupid, but I cannot click through your photos!
Do you have to be logged into twitter to do that?

Dulux Jasmine White and Timeless are pretty much interchangeable - we use them in all rooms/areas that are white. Hall landing and stairs are among these, and I like it.

French Grey Pale by Little Greene Paint Company, changes colour throughout the day depending on the light.

Picked up a load of testers based on the suggestions here so will give them a whirl over the coming days.

Thanks all for suggestions.

Little Greene's French grey (light). Very nice.

Littlemilla, your hallway is very similar to mine. We painted it a gorgeous grey colour (b&q's own, called light rain, hence my username). I am always recommending it on here as we're so pleased with it. We got a new carpet up the stairs (hallway has stripped floorboards), its a neutral colour. Door is painted white on the inside like yours. Banister is dark wood, spindles white. Looks fabulous if I do say so myself!

If you click through the pics, there should be one of the bedroom, which is a lighter grey. It is Cornforth White, and really lovley.

Ooh- that is looking fab Mme!

Our new house is so dingy, it's really getting to me now. Needs paler greys I think... though anything's better than all this BROWN!

Iwillsleep we had exactly that combination in our back hall in our old house!

We have William Morris wallpaper which is yellow in our hall. We inherited it when we moved in. It's OK but it's getting really tatty so we're hoping to redecorate but there's very well painted woodchip underneath the wallpaper so not sure what to do confused

MmeLindor Tue 25-Jun-13 23:55:48

yes, Johnstones. Here is a pic Doors not painted yet, will be white

We have a lot of light when the doors are open, and a huge lamp in the stairwell. It looks amazing.

Cinnamon- at our previous house we had borrowed light, north facing, was just gorgeous!

JoyMachine Tue 25-Jun-13 22:50:41

MmeLindor- may I ask which company you used to mix the manor house? (johnstones?)
Mine is 50 shades of brown... needs changing ASAP!

Dulux York White in my hall.

LittleMilla Tue 25-Jun-13 21:59:13

Thanks Cinnamon, one of the things that sold the house to us tbh!

Johnstones 'Manhattan Grey' with yellow touches in the mirror, light shade and soon to be rug.

LittleMilla Tue 25-Jun-13 21:58:32

I do like that natural hessian. Buying some testers tomorrow I think!

eatyourveg Tue 25-Jun-13 21:55:14
