    Hi All,

    I'm about to get my whole house painted and need some help with my colour scheme.

    We've got a bit of an industrial vibe happening, with whitewashed brick, and a dark feature wall which is currently a British paints colour called Rhino Grey - this throws quite a lot of blue in our light, so ends up looking very similar to colourbond Ironstone. I'm thinking of going over this with Dulux Domino..

    Trims, doors etc will be White Polar Quarter.

    I need a colour for the walls, I'm thinking a grey....but don't want it to be too cold. Floors are currently a terracotta looking tile, but will eventually be timber (vinyl plank) so that will also add warmth.

    Any recommendations? Or non-grey ideas?

    Recommend you spend 2hours of a Dulux Colour Consultant's time and get professional help. It was the best $250 I spent a few years ago. She matched everything from benchtops to feature walls to even driveway colours.

    That's a great idea - we're doing the front of the house too so we can kill lots of birds with one stone.

    I'm still in love with Mission Brown and Khaki. Broken cream for highlights.

    I love the domino - it's not too black but doesn't have that blue undertone.
