Ok i have got my 21 tester pots blush down to two colours - shaded white and james white. I worry the shaded white will look too dull in the morning in our dark west facing room. The James White is nice and zingy but i am not sure! Which do you prefer?

As colours go, I prefer the one on the right, as the one on the left is a bit boring. But sometimes boring is the best choice: it really depends on what else is going on the room. I take It from the choices you're debating that you're probably not a crazy colourful household. If that is the case, I would go for the darker colour (and it's not even that dark) for a clearer contrast with (presumably?) white woodwork.

I'm about to enter tester pot hell myself. Who knew there were so many shades of grey? (Apart from that woman who wrote that book...)

Both are nice but the darker one has a bit more character. It depends a lot on the other colours in the room, is there something to contrast or liven it up, can you have white walls or splash backs...

looks nice here


Dark isn't the end of the world. Install some LED low energy lights if you need to.

i'm pairing it with Snowy Ibiza Silestone and this tap to add in some warmth. Walls will be another verso of white - not sure which yet!
