Hi I need it buy paint quickly. Thought I would get Dulux jasmine white but it looks really creamy in some images online so now am panicking!

I am looking for a just off-white, on the warm side of white but definitely NOT yellows or creamy. It should look white unless beside a brilliant white if you know what I mean?

Help please! grin

I really love Timeless. I think it looks nice and warm, and picks up the light differently depending on what colours you put with it. You'd only know ours wasn't white if you looked at the white coving next to it.

I've always used Timeless

Timeless is a bit creamy, White Cotton is not but is very, very faintly greeny.

I've had Almond White before and loved it.

Timeless, not yellow or creamy at all, slightly grey if anything.

Timeless is throughout my parents house and lovely.

I've got jasmine white in my kitchen (east facing, lots of glazing, pretty bright all day). It definitely is more on the ivory side of things but not yellowy cream (in my situation anyway). It might appear more yellow in a south facing room though with warmer light.

Timeless here too - doesn't look yellow at all. Try Eypgtian Cotton if you want a more greigey pale neutral.

We have jasmine white in bedroom, nice pale cream white, not yellow. Looks great. Used milk white in the kitchen that's lovely, slight hint of cream tone but very fresh, gets lots of compliments.

Second Egyptian Cotton for a slightly grey white

Thanks all grin

Based on suggestions, got some testers.. Jasmine white definitely creamier than I wanted so it was between Timeless and Cotton white.. of the two, both look white but Timeless is slightly warmer I feel so Timeless it is!

I've used both and like them both. Jasmine was in a 1950s flat, Timeless in an Edwardian maisonette. Jasmine is perhaps a warmer shade.
Get the little try-me pots, slap on to A4 sheets of paper and hold up in situ to see which suits the room beat.
