This is our compact and bijoux dining room, a totally rubbish photo (taken with my phone) but you can get the gist of it.
As you can see we trialed out many tester pots before we found the right colour. Way back when we bought the house we painted every room Chalk Stone, an off white colour. We only wanted a subtle colour change as our furniture speaks volumes and adds the colour to the room so eventually we chose the top left tester colour which is Egyptian Cotton. You can just see where I have cut in round the ceiling.
And here you can just about see the change in colour, well I did say it was subtle. It makes the rooms feel so much warmer. Cant wait to see the walls painted tomorrow (groaning from all of my body), I will post some more (better) photos soon. Now I'm off for something warm and hearty for dinner, its soooo wet and windy outside.
