    there was a white color that was popular for many years, antique white is that popular still

    I've seen roses on old ceilings painted to look very fancy with different colors and some gold even i wonder if i'd ever do that or just go for very basic white type color.

    thank you.

    Popular whites from the Dulux range include : antique white, whisper white, lexicon to name just a few.

    Popular beige: hog bristle ( full, half or quarter strength)

    Best thing is to get a sample pot.

    We've just finished building and painted the interior Dulux White Exchange Quarter with Dulux Vivid White ceiling/trims. Its a very neutral colour which leans towards beige and grey. Looks great IMO

    Team of three Sydney ladies doing some great Reno works that include paint colours used, may be of interest.

    I have seen it too, very tacky IMO.

    Are you looking at painting an older home/period home or new home.

    I like whites.

    I like white.
    Especially for an IP.
    Use other things for colour.

    I'm a fan of whisper white - looks white but takes on the "tint" of what it is matched with - so you haven't got issue with matching different toned flooring colours or curtains etc.

    Definitely DO NOT paint the rose. Looks great in the Sistine Chapel but tacky in a regular residence.
