Yes as you might have guessed I have a dilemma over Farrow & Ball paint chart. They really don't make things easy. Just the the manes of the paints make you tempted. I mentioned last week that our living room wall/s needs painting. Most of the room is painted white. Initially I thought about wallpaper, sort of fake wood planks or panelling but I after I suddenly got wallpapering bug last year and did 3 walls in our house already and leave it. So paint it is.
I eliminate colours downstairs now to white, black, grey, beige, tiny bit dark yellow, gold, and green. The first two photos is our home. I like mixing old stuff with b&w photos, a bit of Scandinavian white mixture with eclectic mish mash.
We have two black walls in our home now. One on the top floor bedroom and one on a landing. Although I love it the paint is really matt and show absolutely everything. Not a great choice with 3 kids. I don't want paint the wall in silk as it just looks so much better in dark colour/ matt.
Railings is very tempting, but perhaps too dark for the room.
So my choices are Castle Grey, Pigeon, Lamp room Grey, Manor House...Oh my..are you still there? :) ...not sure really.
Help, has anyone painted with Farrow & Ball? any tips for darker colours? Off to buy sample pots. I keep you posted. Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!
