Loving the Antiquew White USA, Hogs Bristle and Shale Grey

Jenny said...

Our house has Antique White USA which I really love with vivid white trim. We also used Dulux 'snoop' (navy) in the kids room.

I like the paler colours eg Antique white USA (might use that in my hallway makeover) but love the duckegg blue. I agree, there are so many versions of pale blue it's almost impossibe to choose :)

The Dulux Domino looks stunning. These photos might just convince my DH to do a feature wall in it:)

I painted the rooms in my 1820 house the colour of storm clouds, that wonderful livid warm grey, with white trim - and I loved it for the eleven years I lived there. I haven't used it again - somehow it was right just for that house.

Another house was all Farrow & Ball Lime White, but when I tried it in California it just looked dirty. Horses for courses!

Oooh lucky me - a winner!!
Thanks Katrina

Antique White USA for me every time. Question - Katrina, did you use it on the trims and ceilings too? I contrasted it with white trims, which made it stand out and more creamy than the swatches. It looks whiter with no contrasting trims, I might go the one colour next time. A-M xx

Hi A-M, I did exactly the same as you and next time I am doing exactly as you suggested...how funny is that? My sister carried the same white (it wasn't antique white usa though - must check what it was) all through to ceilings/trims/doors.... looks great!

So good seeing the paint colours used in rooms. I have painted a desk in Domino and love it. it is the perfect charcoal/black shade IMHO.and woot for winning the wine wipes!

Kyandra said...

Thanks for sharing these colours...have used toffee fingers recently and love it...also antique white USA in my daughters room but it is a little stark for me although she loves it....think next on my list will be hogs bristle :) Kym X

Great colour choices!
I will always love Antique White USA but am starting to become more adventurous with colour, now favouring natural tones like Hog Bristle, love the blue/turquiose colour range at the moment & also loving the nice deep red tones too.

Kerry said...

I've been looking for a white...the Antique White USA will be it I think, and I guess I'd better use it on the trims as well!!

Our house loves Antique White USA, just goes equally well with brilliant whites and creamy whites. I also like Wattyl's Orchid, a very soft white.

I have used White on White (Dulux) in my last 2 houses. Also like the Grey Sale you mentioned but the perfect french grey still alludes me.

i painted our place antique white USA the first time but it looked a bit dirty compared to the bright white trim and our bright white furniture. so we changed to dulux whisper white - slightly whiter but still warm and did the trim and ceilings the same too. much better and the PERFECT match to our ikea applaad kitchen doors (a nice fluke). i highly recommend using the same colour on trim if it's white.
i've just used wattyl nightsky (similar but slightly darker than dulux domino) on a feature wall in my bedroom - am finishing it up this weekend. LOVE IT!

Antique White USA I find a bit yellow. Haven't found the ideal white for my archs and trims but for my walls

I love Farrow and Ball Elephants Breath!!!!
