  • Natural Hessian

    After Damsels help I decided on Natural Hessian for my kitchen however after now seeing the tester next to my new cupboards, it just looks so grey It's really dull next to my cupboards which are cream but with a yellowy tone.

    I don't know what to do now. Get the whole kitchen painted in Natural Hessian or try and find another colour tomorrow Only problem is looking at the colour charts are no use. Natural Hessian on the colour chart looks brown and it's nothing like that in real life

    Re: Natural Hessian

    Our hall was painted in Natural Hessian and it was so grey and dreary. One day I snapped and covered it in 4 coats of Timeless and it looks much better now!

    Dont go with a colour you dont like,especially when you have put so much of your heart and soul into designing your perfect kitchen. What colours are you having in your kitchen? Could you have it all white with an accent wall?

      ps I had a cream kitchen in my old house and had pale blue walls, which I really liked.

        Thanks for your input Sunshine, interesting to hear that you thought it was dreary too, especially when it had been suggested to me in real life several times as well.

        I want to keep the walls neutral like the rest of the kitchen as it's quite a dark room by nature because the sun doesn't fall on the front of the house where the kitchen window is.

        Accessory-wise, I am having red (like my new red KitchenAid )

        I tried Timeless but it was way too stark and white, I want something a bit warmer.

          Try natural calico, much nicer IMHO.

              For the same reasons as you stated, I have my kitchen walls painted cream, it is a Dulux colour but I cant remember what It was called now.

              Something Cotton I think? I think it is the same colour as Flipflop's walls!

                White Cotton? Crushed Cotton? Egyptian Cotton?

                  I cant remember CL! I have been on the dulux website to try and find it, but the names seem to be different.

                  I dont have any of it left because our decorator colour matched it. I did have a sample but threw it away recently as it had been sitting in my bathroom for ages

                  I do remember that I tried Timeless, Almond White and then the cotton one and it was just a tiny shade warmer than almond white.

                  Sorry that is just useless isnt it

                        Thanks Minky, we are going with Natural Calico. You are right, it so much nicer than Natural Hessian. Thanks for your help.

                          I know you've chosen now but for future reference Laura Ashley has some gorgeous neutrals - Limewash, Ivory and Vanilla all being beautiful.

                            Dishes, you are SO right, I fell in love with Country Cream from Laura Ashley, but it was double the price of Dulux and I need a lot of paint!

                              The quality is OUTSTANDING though - the coverage never ceases to amaze me!
