Hi deb, thanks for comments, I loved the white before we wallpapered because the room was chocolate and white. The wallpaper is beige background with choc swirls and I thought the white a bit stark. Guess its time for more shopping and see if I can find an earthy tone quilt cover and then I post a pic to see which colorbond better, but don't hold your breath it takes me ages to decide on quilt covers, almost as bad as me finding light fittings.

HI Michelle, I would love a mood board. Hubby is painting before we move in and I have to decide on colours. I once made him paint the same wall three times, and still hated it, so he is very definite I have to get this right. I am going the hard path as I want one colour throughout the house that has to go with the following:
Charcoal carpet in the colour tones of the dulux GR20 sample trio, white curtains and white bedding with black lamps and chandelier.
A beige porcelain tile with a grey marbleing in it (very subtle) wood furniture and white curtains in main living area and black and white kitchen
Black and silver curtains in media room with the charcoal carpet.
Sound's like a hotchpotch of colours . The spanner in the works are the tiles (which we already bought) and our chunky wood furniture
The other thought is to go with a cool grey in the bedrooms and media to tone with the carpet, and do the open plan in Hog Bristle or similar. Would it be too much going between the two areas though?

Thanks Michelle, we are thinking of the following colours: Grand Piano, Beige Royal or Limed White. Some feel too yellow, and some too pink

Okay, we are now looking at Light rice. I do love Sea Elephant as a feature but what colour compliment's it for main walls?

To match Sea Elephant, you would go lighter in the family of colours - which will give you Dulux Blind Date.
My boyfriend has Sea Elephant on all walls in his bedroom at his house, looks fantastic!
Moodboods can take me up to 2 hours to do, sorry my lateness, its just a time thing with me lately.
Good find Donna!

Don't stress over the mood board, I would rather just some advice on the paint colours. I think I have decided on light rice walls with sea elephant feature in the open plan area where we have the beige floor tiles. Now I just need a lovely warm grey for the media and bedrooms where we have charcoal carpet an also a soft grey for the bathrooms where we have grey floor tiles and whie Carrara look wall tiles with silk moose cabinets

How about Dulux Dieskau for the bathroom and bedrooms.
Both grey with a brown base.
Dulux Stepney for the media room

Hi Michelle, I have been busy shopping and have done a Moodboard based on what I have bought and what I already have.

If you're still doing boards I would love one! I like dark wood, beigey whites, browns and I'm planning on red for feature colour. I want a middle eastern style of decor. My floorboards are red chestnut and walls are Arabian sand, a peachy light brown.
