I hate this slate floor but will be too expensive to remove then replace.
I will be replacing the doors and leadlights to make it more modern, one into a bifold window, the other will still be double doors. The furniture is changing.
What colour should I repaint the walls & ceiling to make the slate look less ick?! I was thinking grey or caramel with white ceiling

Personally, I like the slate tile, but them I love very earthy stuff...

I would think about finding a color to go with the reds and oranges in the tile as I think there's more than enough gray in the floor to think about using that for the walls as well. Here are a few ideas based on what I can pick up on my monitor:

I think if you don't like the slate adding a caramel colour would bring out the contrast in the flooring, something like in this photo. Do you know what colour of furniture you are putting in this room yet? That will make a difference too.

An example using greys, more modern.

Hayley thanks, I could consider the first colour idea you have, not so much the other 2. I haven't decided on furniture colour yet... Just want to get the room itself right and then see where that takes me furniture wise. I do like the caramel paint colour Marlene- quite nice... White ceiling?

(I mean - if I can't get rid of it, I want to embrace it!)
