Hi Girls. I’ve never posted before but have followed you all and your fabulous ideas. ❤️

I’m trying to find a light grey to paint our weatherboard home. We’re going to do white around the window trims and a darker grey for the barge boards.

I’d really like a ”clean” grey with out the blue/purple/mushroom undertones.

Please please can anyone help me ??

I’m feeling like I’m being a fuss pot but I’m just getting frustrated with what I’ve seen so far.

Photos would be amazing also.

Thanks so very much in advance.

15. Different paint Sample pots, and we came across a colour called canyon cloud by Bristol, and it is a true grey, with no blue or green overtones. We did a full strength on the walls of the house and a half strength on the Gable. It’s so fresh, looking against vivid white, which is what we pick for the trims.

Shale grey is a good option. You can use half strength if you want it lighter. This is full strength.

Silver Tea Set. In the outdoors colours look significantly lighter. Get a few sample pots and try before you decide.

Dulux Tranquil Retreat is a beautiful soft grey or Dulux Terrace White.
