I’m having the stairs and landing wallpapered but the hallway will be painted. So I need a paint that will coordinate with the paper. I will post a pic. It’s fairly neutral a sort of “greige” I suppose. But I don’t want cream walls as that’s a bit boring. Trouble is hallway is dark and small. I tried a tester of Dulux polished pebble and it was far too dark.

It's all about tone....get a paint which is the same tone as the greige...I'm thinking blue-ish.


Like the one in the link above.

Take the paper and have it colour matched - the lighter or darker as you prefer. B & Q do this.

Oooh I didn’t know you could get paper colour matched. That’s a good idea!

I do like that Sherwin Williams paint Fortunes

Yes as PP said, B&Q use Valspar for colour matching which is great!
