Blue Gray

No. 91  

Blue Gray 4.6 5 32 32
A khaki green Beautiful, beautiful depth. Painted in a small north facing dressing room; most definitely not blue or grey in this setting. A lovely khaki, sage green colour which builds in intensity in a room with less light and more corners. It is a great backdrop for a range of colours eg mustard, dark wood furniture, black and cream. All sounds a little odd but works brilliantly. Need to test large area as colour very different to sample I did. Still, a fab colour and I wasn't matching to anything so it was great. 18 November 2014
Blue Grey green? Love the colour, just what I wanted but it is a more green than blue. I bought a tester first so knew it was the right shade for the job. Went on well. Great choice of shades available. 07 November 2014
Great paint but seems more green than blue. I love this paint, it goes on well and the finish is great. However, I feel that blue grey should be blue grey and this seems more green. I have asked several people young and old the first colour that comes to mind and it is always green! 17 September 2014
as always, F&B quality is excellent Blue Gray exterior paint used on masonry sections of a red brick house in woodland setting. Subtle colour, very pleasing on the eye, that blends well with surroundings. Far more sophisticated than previous ubiquitous cream I used 10 years ago! 11 September 2014
Our new kitchen cupboards look amazing in blue grey We used the estate eggshell to paint our existing laminate kitchen cupboards. Used a melamine primer first and then took 4 coats of farrow and ball. The colour and finish makes them look really expensive, yet it's a 10 year old cheap kitchen. Another farrow and ball success! 01 September 2014
Excellent depth of colour. Very easy to apply. Excellent coverage and depth of colour. Washes well. 28 April 2014
Perfect colour after a long search! Needed a gray green emulsion for my lounge. Perfect but definitely more green than blue. Rich and elegant, especially nice against brass/pewter frames. 07 April 2014
Overall happy The picture of this colour is very accurate (at least on my ipad). It is not blue or gray but quite a strong green which is what we wanted. We painted our front door in this and it looks really good but just be careful if you want a blue or gray colour. It is slightly more difficult to apply I found than a normal paint in the sense that you need to be careful to not overpaint afterwards as this creates brush strokes. You also need to use the proper primer and undercoat from F&B which obviously costs money too! Pleased with the final look. 16 March 2014
