We have a breeze block outhouse/garage which we are currently converting to a garden room/ office. It is currently painted off white and looks awful. What colour should we paint it? Dark grey? Light grey? That pale green everyone has? Any ideas?

Dark grey sounds nice. Could you grow some plants up the sides to soften it?

Plants'. Great idea, thanks. I could do ivy or magnolia maybe.

Does it have a flat roof? I'm imagining one of those 'green living roofs'. My friend did it. Just rolled out the pre-seeded matting, it looks lovely now.

No it has a pitch roof but like your idea!

I like that pale green - I think it's called French Grey
