Well, you really need to take chips of paint colours into your home to check them out. Light varies so much according to the way the room faces, the amount of light coming in, even light at sea level can be totally different to light on top of a mountain. A lot depends on the undertone of a paint colour as to the shade it will take on in different lights, some colours stay true others can vary enormously. You can take advice for colours others have used but do check them out thoroughly before using them yourself.

Totally agree with Roo, the right greige can be wonderful - but get it wrong and you will only notice the undertones shouting at you!

I personally dislike even the name Greige. Who thought of that? Beige is out grey is in so do something other than those. Pick something you love then it won't look dated in a few years.

I agree Interiors, I knew it as taupe (which is what I originally called Donkey Grey) but taupe is a very versatile colour (I just thought N. Americans called taupe greige)
