I've run out of steam choosing colours I almost don't care.
Bedrooms are Borrowed Light, Wimborne White & Skimming Stone. Landing, stairs & hall are Skimming Stone. Kitchen & utility are Blackened.
DH says 'no more bloody grey'. I need a neutral with a stronger colour for panelling, shelves & fireplace. Purbeck Stone looks good for the wood work but not a clue what to put with it. Floors are limestone, no curtains yet.
Not a fan of green but open to any other suggestions.

We have oval room blue, is lovely. Quite a strong hue, but very smart for victorian living room.

We also have pigeon in one of our bathrooms which a lovely green/grey.

Gorgeous colour but too daring for me.
It's an informal room with stone windows, quite light but due to the various doorways has the potential to look like a corridor.

Clunch is nice.

Old white is lovely with Wimborne white for wood work and ceilings. Not sure if it would work with Purbeck Stone.

I agree, Old White is lovely, but quite greenish. Gorgeous with white though. Elephants breath is great too.

I've just done my downstairs loo, utility and pantry in Stifkey Blue and it looks incredible - but a bold choice maybe... Love Elephants breath and Skimming stone if you're going neutral but think you're maybe sick of those tones...
