    I went to IKEA and fell in love with this room. Love the dark furniture and colour of walls. Trying to figure out the colour of the wall.... It looks like a mix between a grey and a brown to me.... But my sense of colour is awful ....




    Trying to find a similar colour online...

    Think that's too dark and brown though

    if you go back and find a member of staff they may well be able to tell you the brand and colour. We spotted some tiles in an Ikea kitchen display that we really liked, and a very helpful member of staff toddled off and found out the supplier and tile name for us. Make sure and go at a quiet time though, or you won't stand a chance of getting someone who has the time to do that!

    Ok so I went back to IKEA. Turns out they have a little information poster on each room to tell you exactly what paint and floor they used.

    Funnily enough I actually bought the tester pot of what they used but I thought it was a darker then the one In the photo.

    The colour was 'Dark Horse' ... It was B&Q's own brand paint. It's deffo more of a dark brown more than a grey but it does have elements of both colours. Think they were quite accurate with the colour description.

    The lighting will make a lot of difference.

    Your room presumably has natural light from windows, Ikea has no natural light.

    In our living room the walls look anything from grey to pale blue depending on the time of day and amount of light coming in.
