Ours is magnolia at the moment, the same as most of the house. We really need to decorate but can I decide what colour? Can I heck! I'm veering towards soft grey or greenish tones but I'm open to suggestions.

Magnolia! Bit boring but neutral. Dh loves it, I would prefer something a bit more interesting. Some kind of light green perhaps.

Natural hessian, a bit less yellow tones that magnolia

Ours was a light shade of yellow for a few days until I decided I hated it.

Now it's a warm cream and it's nice. Not very exciting, but I'm happy with it. It's quite a dark hallway, so a light colour works best.

A soft pale green. I really like it.

PogoBob Wed 27-Jul-16 07:13:58

Light green here too, really like (now just need to change the horrid carpet!)

Milky white - am trying to get it as light as possible. My ideal would be a dove grey but fear the house would seem too dark.

All my other rooms are 'colours' though.

Mine is papered with a light cream and dark cream stripe. The light (or possibly dark, I can't be arsed to get up and check) stripe had glitter in.
(Less tacky than it sounds)

Dulux trade almond white, with skirting and banisters in F & B skimming stone.

Ours is just about to be painted 'caramel latte' orcas my husband refers to it - baby poo!

RumAppleGinger Wed 27-Jul-16 07:23:42

Light grey. Was magnolia when we moved in. Much prefer it.

Ilovenannyplum Wed 27-Jul-16 07:24:14

Grey walls that almost have a bluey tinge to them, white gloss skirting and banisters and a darker grey carpet

Mine is Farrow and Ball, Pavilion Grey.
I have an oak floor in the hallway and dark grey carpet up the stairs and it all matches really well.

F&B paint is expensive and there are plenty of other brands with similar colours

We've just finished a big renovation project and unbeknownst to us the decorator had been briefed to leave everything painted flat matt white. Initially we were horrified - "plain white!?!?" - but we've now decided to leave it, we love it! It's very flat, there's no reflection even under electric light, it's very easy to touch up should it get marked, colour is added by artwork etc. Really maximises the natural light. Mind you, I have wood doors, architraves and skirting and floor. It could be a bit much without them to break them up.

Like a pp I went for yellow. HUGE mistake. It was supposed to be a grey-ish mustard. Instead it was like American hot dog mustard. It was awful.

Now it's gentle fawn. I Bought gentle fawn because the name suggested it was gentle-unlike the hot dog mustard colour. It's fine. It's not yellow.

Dulux - Egyptian Cotton (pale grey)

Sooverthis Wed 27-Jul-16 07:49:54

Dimpse F&B it's grey, silvery blue changes with the light and was recommended by mn.

PigeonPie Wed 27-Jul-16 07:56:14

We currently have so many different testers on the walls it's almost not worth buying proper paint! We've tried about 10 different shades of brown, yellow, cream and green and none of them feel right.

The DSs and DH want orange (latest tester bought yesterday), but I remain to be convinced!

Muddy Puddle and Cream

Marmitelover55 Wed 27-Jul-16 08:08:07

Dulux timeless

Roussette Wed 27-Jul-16 08:10:11

Little Greene is the make and "Clay" is the colour. Absolutely love it. Apparently so I'm told, Little Greene is the paint of choice for decorators, sort of F&B colours but much cheaper and really good coverage, here it is.

Only1BabyPigeon Wed 27-Jul-16 08:24:50

Overtly olive on a couple of walls, (Dulux) and magnolia on the others.

Toomanycats99 Wed 27-Jul-16 08:29:15

Rousette. We are using little green eggshell for our woodwork. Absolutely love it to paint with but since we are basically redecorating a whole house it's getting a little pricey!
