Light Gray

No. 17  

Light Gray 4.7 5 10 10
Colour wasn't what I expected The colour is very green I would say more khaki then grey, but the quality of the paint was excellent. 14 November 2014
Color Name Because of the way your paints are made, which we like, the color changes as the light changes. This is not a plain gray, this is very definitely a green gray with brown overtones. 21 October 2014
it looks very charming I did a lot of preparation work. But now i'm very pleased. Light gray exterior eggshell is a neutral color very relaxing to look with the sunlight and your shadow as you can see. the wall is london clay ex.masonry. the paint have good consistence .All is perfect 29 August 2014
Gorgeous... Love, Love, L♡VE Farrow & Ball... this is a really nice shade which I used along side Old White... and together they really coordinate together nicely. Clock ~ Light Gray Desk ~ Old White 20 April 2014
Elegant and adaptable to different places We used Light Gray on our downstairs hall walls through to the upstairs landing combined with lime white above the dado or picture rails. This colour combination works in perfect harmony and the colours produce a wonderful spectrum of shades depending on time of day or part of the house - so it gives the impression you have used more than two colours.Never too dark and not an industrial grey. A perfect backdrop for contemporary art and antique mirros. We loved it so much we painted our living room in the same colourways but with shaded white on the wood panelling below the dado - again, very elegant but with warm undertones. Perfect application too. 13 February 2014
A grey for all seasons 'Light Grey' doesn't do justice to the colour. Works beautifully with all soft, muted, traditional tones (greens, blues, ocre, lilac and mauves) but is quite masculine and modernist too - so makes a stunning backdrop for bright or retro brights accents - even acid tones (I've had soft furnishings in all colours and patterns over the years, and the walls have always been Light Grey). I would agree with the other reviewer who said it sets off black & white prints brilliantly. And my cast iron fire surround looks great too, even though it's in serious need of a good scrub. I have a similiar, but slighlty lighter, French Grey in my bedroom - and that is definitely a lot more green than this. I would say the closest comparison I could give to this colour when dry is the colour of wet cement. I would heartily recommend adding a sample pot of this to your basket if you're thinking of decorating your living room, study or a large hallway. But would go for an brighter ivory or off white ceiling/woodwork rather than white as, in my opinion, unless immaculate they can look cold and dingy next to each other. 05 August 2013
Excellent finish Use your paint often. More than just a light grey. Great depth and ease of application. Use a lot of paint in my job as a decorator. Always recommend Farrow and Ball 27 November 2012
Super colour for a large light area This was for our dining hall and landing. It goes superbly with reds and greens and is much warmer than the lighter colour we had before. Creates an intimate atmosphere without being too dark. Thrilled with the results! 08 October 2012
