Crown Sail White is a lovely off-white colour

We've got Dulux Natural Calico in a few rooms in our house. It also comes in washable, kitchen and bathroom so could do the whole house if you wanted to (we are halfway there!)

I’ve had both timeless (more cream) and jasmine white (an off white)

Much prefer Jasmine white, it has a good chalky finish

Crown milk white is nice, or Crown A hint of antique cream.

I chose timeless over jasmine white as jasmine white is a warmer tone and I wanted cooler.

I've used Leyland's "English Silk", which I like a lot.

I used buckets of Farrow and Ball’s Wimborne white last year. Well, Johnstone’s colour match.

@Sarjest Snap! I still look at my walls and think I made a great choice.

Going for F&B for the first time soon. I think it’s good to consider your natural light and then choose something that makes the most of that. I had never considered this before and only know because of reading up on it recently. It makes sense though because over the years I’ve chosen colder whites and warmer whites and the warmer- beige type always look much better. I chose the bluer white because I thought I liked that look better but it just didn’t work as well.

Also the finishes make a big difference. I used to always use Matt and loved it. A few years ago I changed to silk finish because I’ve got little children and thought better to be wipeable. It’s really not as nice and just doesn’t suit my home. I’m doing a big refurb at the moment and will def choose a chalky finish when I get to the painting part.
