Hi everyone. We have our colour selections coming up next week for our new build.
I’m after some recommendations on paint colours. We have to choose a taubmans colour and the colour I love is a dulux colour. (Tranquil retreat). Wondering if anyone knows a comparable colour with taubmans or can suggest a light grey that won’t look blue, purple or brown.

We have our brand new renovation painted in that colour. If you really want to know what it looks like in real life setting you can come visit our place instead of you getting sample colourson tiny pieces of samples..

The important bits are the RGB values and the LRV value. These determine what shade and how deep the colour is.
Dulux Tranquil Retreat is R: 195, G: 196, B: 194 LRV Value: 59. Basically it means there is a touch more green than red, and a touch more red than blue, but because of those values it is a pretty neutral grey - not going to throw to any particular colour. LRV is the light reflective value - the higher the number the lighter the colour.
Taubmans Centurion is somewhat similar - RGB: R205 G205 B202 LRV: 61.5
Grey Dusk - R207 G205 B200 LRV: 61.8 (slightly warmer colour grey)
Mountaintop - R197 G199 B195 LRV: 57.6
Glacier White - R202 G205 B200 LRV: 61.4
