Hi Guys,
What do you think of this colour proposal so far?
See before picture and colour swatch picture below. I haven't gone so far as to choose a splashback, tiles or blinds. Any suggestions gratefully received. Thanks for looking.

Plan B - avoid being too peachy.

Honestly, I do like the Plan A better. It's not reading peach on my monitor, just a pleasant beige. But if it concerns you, you can have the color reduced by 25% - 50% which may take care of the problem.

By the way......I really like the way you worded your dilemma ! "Any suggestions gratefully received" It makes us feel happy about being able to help you !!!

Hi Bob - I love hearing from you like minded people. And the way technology enables me to chat to many folks on the other side of the Antlantic. Fantasticl!
Here's another colour from Farrow and Ball (they make such lovely "classy English" colours) - link http://www.farrow-ball.com/dix-blue/colours//fcp-product/100082#

This is an amazing colour which changes depending on the light shining on it!
I might try it in the hallway where there's nothing for it to clash with (white and brown). http://www.farrow-ball.com/elephant%27s-breath/colours/fcp-product/100229

Lyn, I can only comment on the colors as my monitor is displaying them, agreed?

My monitor is telling me the top blue is a blue-yellow, and the bottom is a blue-grey. So I'm not seeing them as compatible, sorry.

That's right Bob.
You like Plan A - "String" -A pale earth pigment based colour can be used either as an off-white with brighter colours or as its own colour with a brighter white. Mid Tones Undercoat.
Sounds like a Plan to me! Thank you for your time and reassurance.

You're so welcome! I've been trying to attach pics of my kitchen which I did in appliance white and denim blue but the slippery little devils won't attach. I also painted my disgusting floor tile countertops with a hammered copper paint, saving me the cost of new ones. I'll try again in a separate comment.
