Help me find the right greyish white

Like several other people up and down the land, I want to paint our hallway and soon to be built kitchen extension in a greyish white. I had thought about FB skimming stone, which I think will work in our north facing living room, but am put off from using this in the hallway and extension which will be light-filled as I've heard it can tend towards the pinkish. Any ideas? X

Dulux Timeless

+1 for timeless
works really well in both my south facing and north facing rooms.

Dulux Timeless is not greyish at all. In my south facing room it's creamish, in the north facing one wall is nearly white, the opposite wall is a tiny bit creamish.
I also have Dulux White Mist in the south facing lounge, but I would not recommend as it's a bit drab, neither grey or white.
I like Timeless very much, BTW.

Dulux Porcelain Doll.

I don't find timeless at all creamish - guess different lights play differently

Timeless isn't grey though it is soft white.

Skimming stone is more a pale taupe rather than grey.

I would suggest Cornforth white by F&B

or Pale French Gray by Little Greene

(Dulux will colour match and they invariably have the codes for these paints so you don't even need to take a sample in)

I have timeless in my south facing living room and it's a beautiful warm white absolutely stunning. I also have it in my hall way downstairs which gets light but not much and its a nice clean white, and on my landing which gets lots of light it's a lovely warm white again.

Farrow and Ball colbolt white (or something like that) it's lovely

We've just painted our kitchen in FB skylight

I love F&B cornforth white too, have used it in a few different houses now. Also love Dulux Eygptian cotton.

Nice job leighdinglady!
I'm going to buy a cornforth white tester. Marvellous.
