Emergency Paint choice - white paint for grey bathroom

Our bathroom is being painted on Wednesday and I need to decide a colour.

I haven't got time to do tester pots! I want it white. The lino is grey/white mosaic and the tiles are white with a a grey/white/silver mosaic border.

I want to paint it white but don't want the white to look too yellow/pink. The hallway is mid-blue

Can someone give me a Dulux white that has blue/grey undertones so I can tell the decorator!

Thanks :-)

Just do brilliant white. My Mil painted hers with white with blue grey undertones and it looks horrible in dull winter light.

Good point. It only has a small window so relies almost totally on artificial light.

It's a shocker in the morning. I look a 100 years old grin

I did see a bathroom post recently along similar lines and someone had found a subtle silver paint somewhere and said it looked amazing, plus reflected light a little. No idea where she got it from though.

A great base coat in decent bright wipe-able paint done by a professional is always a good start though.
