My first post, albeit it being about paint! Forgive me.
Selecting a paint colour is quite the opposite of exciting - it's quite tedious, confusing and annoying! So I need your help..
Our property is one of those inner-west homes, north-facing, narrow hallway, 2-3 bedrooms, long in nature.
Please let me know if I'm on the right track:
-Areas with a lot of sunlight, to be painted a cooler white.
-Side skirts to be more white than the walls (for contrast) and ceilings a different shade of white.
-Rooms not well-lit are to have a warmer white
I'm going with Dulux, so any recommendations (colours, brands) would be great.
Regarding the external paint for render, I think I want to settle for a light grey / beige colour. Any ideas / combination of colours? I was thinking a light-grey with white window frames. Also, I like that European beige/standstone look too but not sure how it will look on our home.
Also, are you to select a colour 3 or 4 shades darker than what you select because the sunlight will make it lighter? Smaller houses prefer lighter colours?
