Anyone used paint colour 'Earth Child'?

Anyone used paint colour 'Earth Child'?

No but it's the one I'm considering for internal walls. Did you choose this colour? and how did it go? What is your general colour scheme. Mine is deep but soft grey and white.

The garage looks like caoba colorbond maybe? The render looks similar to the fascias, which look like paperbark. Good luck with the rest.

Definately consider the interior of your room first! Timber shouldn't be a problem, probably a lighter colour due to your other wood. It doesn't have to be matchy-matchy though.
