Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations for white interior paint colours. I am soon moving into a new place that is quite small and looking at painting the walls in some kind of white. The flooring will be bamboo in the living areas - here is a link if anyone wants to see http://www.premiumfloors.com.au/bamboo/arc-bamboo-champagne/ and will be putting carpet in the bedrooms (haven't picked the colour yet).

My friend recommended white illusion as she used it in her previous house, so unfortunately I cant go and see it in real life. I am looking for a white that is not too stark but also not a yellow or creamy colour and also not too grey, if that makes sense.

I will be trying a sample pots but thought I would see if anyone had any recommendations of something they have used and loved.

Thanks original.gif

We've just painted our new extension in half Resene Alabaster which is just a clean, chalky white. It certainly doesn't look yellow, but doesn't look too stark at the same time.

If I can take a decent picture that shows the colour, I'll post it this afternoon if you like.
