Off white paint recommendations (not Timeless!)

Sorry, flicked through four pages but can’t see a recent Off White thread.

North facing but very light and airy kitchen with quite dark cream cabinets, sage metro tiles and sandstone coloured tiles. Going to have some cupboards painted like a f&b Hague blue. Rest of house in French grey pale (some actual Little Green, most Johnstone colour matched). What’s a good warm off white? Had a horrible experience with Timeless in last house, it just looked weirdly dark cream and depressing.

Any thoughts on light, bright ivory? Posh shades welcomed as will get them colour matched.

How strange. I find Timeless very bright (almost white in fact!)

Timeless is cream only in light, much less in North facing.
I love Little Greene Slaked Lime (Johnstone does a good though not exact colour match), it's an off white that has a touch of warm grey so looks a bit more modern than Timeless but still cosy. There's also a Slaked Lime Light if you want it very close to white.

Our cottage kitchen is decorated with the same colours as yours OP and the entire house is Regency White from B and Q's heritage range. They also have a very similar shade called Chalk White. Goes well alongside all the Farrow and Ball but is a practical price to just paint over with sticky fingers etc.

Meant to add - i know you said ivory, but we have the Slaked Lime and the French Grey and love the combo.
Also maybe a bit more pigment than to you are looking for but Little Greene Linen Wash is a more beigey ivory colour that looks good with blue too.

Ooh slaked lime sounds perfect.

Yes we had had Timeless before and had looked great but urgh, painted a massive room in it as thought it fool proof and hated it and couldn’t afford to repaint it so had to live with it!

Favourite off whites are: duly almost oyster (pinky undertones) and duly trade swansdown (grey/green undertones), dulux trade snowman (bluey undertones).

Oh try Dulux Frosted Dawn! That's from a fellow Timeless-hater here: grey and gloomy to me. Frosted Dawn is from the Light + Space collection. I tested a thousand shades of white (including every sodding F&B white) for my internal staircase / landings lit only from skylight above and Frosted Dawn was the winner.

Also, it's not really off-white but F&B Skimming Stone might work with those colours.

Just walnut is a fab warm dark white/light grey in our north facing rooms

Wimborne white is a Warner White from F and B. Goes with everything!

B&q antique white works well in most lights.

Place marking (see my other thread re whiter than Timeless!)

We recently redecorated using Dulux Almost Oyster, which was a colour match to F&B slipper satin. We like it (but had lived with the previous owners' hideous Buttermilk yellow for 7 years!

I had F&B slipper satin paint-matched in Johnston's. It has a cream hint.

If it's really pale you are after, try Laura Ashley Cotton White
