We have wattyl igloo as a main colour in the living areas of our house and our main bedroom and flokati in the minor bedrooms/main bathroom etc section of the house. These are lighter but on the same kind of tone/shade as wattyl donkey.
This is igloo
It looks less brown in our house and we have dark brown cork tiles.The next shade darker in the range is white pepper from memory.
This is vanderlays place.
Bedroom: Walls - Flokkati, Skirts and Arcs - Purest White, Ceiling - Flat White. Feature wall on right - White pepper.

Thanks for those suggestions. I'm wittling my list down to hopefully 2-3 colours to get for my samples.
I still really love Donkey, just worried that it may be a little too dark against the natural white walls...however, that is what a feature wall is isn't it? A contrast??
Will have some pictures for you over the weekend!

Hey everyone, sorry I haven't been back to report on my choices! Tried to upload photos, but my computer is not being co-operative...
Anyhoo...we went with Donkey and ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!!! It looks stunning and matches everything beautifully!
Hopefully I can put some pictures up soon to show you
Thank you for all your help!!

Thought I would post my pics of our choice for our feature wall. We ended up going Wattyl Donkey in 1/2 strength. Very happy with the result! My partner keeps wanting to paint more walls that colour (trying my best to explain the whole 'feature' wall concept to him )
We painted the wrap-around wall that you will see from our kitchen/dining and family room...
And our lounge room...
Sorry about the painter's tape! On the homestretch painting the trims now!!

Looks great! Goes well with your other colours.
Our new house - moved in but so much more to do!

Love it! I must say that I agree with your partner though, and would use it on other walls as well.
Yeah, I think I will...maybe in the guest room or study perhaps? We're both a little over painting at the moment, so it won't be for awhile!!
Re: Advice on feature wall colour please! - What about blind31

Now that the paint colours are sorted, I'm having a dilemna about blinds. In the kitchen/dining/family area, there are two sliding doors (3 x glass panels), 1 window between the sliders that is on an angle and goes down to the floor (is about 1800 wide) and two skinny windows (roughly 800 wide) in the actual dining room. For the windows, I want to have double rollers and for the sliders, I want panel glides.
My dilemna is the colours. I did pick out a brown and white sunscreen with beige blockout (having the blockout only on the sliders and big window), but when I came home, I found this colour on the Freedom website and fell in love. However, I'm unsure how it will match the wattyl donkey and tiles. I've attached a photo of the blind colour and our tile. I couldn't find a picture of the fabric I picked out in store, but it is from Dollar Curtain and Blinds and is called Tuscany Ash and Dawn Beige.

Patto we had a similar setup, just had a concreter out to look at it - we'll leave a 200mm gap between the concreting and the retaining wall. Be much easier if we ever…
