Cornforth White

No.228

An understated grey

Cornforth White is the mid tone in the group of Easy Neutrals which are totally understated and extremely versatile. Neither too warm nor too cool, Cornforth White sits contentedly between Ammonite and Purbeck Stone to create a hushed and calming retreat. Named in memory of John Cornforth, the revered architectural historian, contrast with Wevet to enhance its grey qualities. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: Wevet

Cornforth White is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 300.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely paint - not the right shade for us Gorgeous paint. We bought 6 different tester pots and found Cornforth White to be quite yellow so opted for Ammonite instead which is a greyer shade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Product This is a really easy product to apply. It was pained onto wooden T&G walls which had already been painted cream and a second coat will be required which I had anticipated from the product description. I have paired with Pointing and it looks really fresh in downstairs loo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing paint This is the second paint tin I've bought after running out. The colour is a good match and is easy to use unlike other brands which can be tacky and lumpy. Its expensive but really good quality and makes painting easy.
