A muted green grey

This very light green grey is named after the Cromarty Firth estuary, a place of swirling mists mentioned daily in the Shipping Forecast. A neutral yet atmospheric colour, Cromarty brings a muted softness to any room, creating an easy to use finish that is neither too green nor too grey. A shade lighter than Mizzle, it works beautifully when grouped with Blue Gray or Pigeon.

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Shadow White

Cromarty is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 140.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour Really happy with this colour and the quality of the paint. This is a small room which required 3 coats and there is around a fifth of the 2.5l tin left. Easy to apply however would be good if the lids of the paint tins were easier to remove! Painted ceiling and skirting in Wimbourne White and they look great together - as pictured with my dog!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Just tried the sample on the wall and it looks lovely. Definitely not too grey or cold. I am looking for a white color for another wall that fits well with a cromarty wall. I am a bit worried that shadow white can be too dark. Any recommendations?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cromarty grey green I bought this as a change from off white in my hall stairs and landing. I'm pleased with the colour now it's on the walls. At first with the tester it looked a dirty beige but it looks good against the white woodwork and staircase

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft, gorgeous color Cromarty looks a bit like dishwater when you open the pot, but once you get it up on the walls it becomes an utterly stunning soft, silvery green. It looks perfect in the dining room of my 1807 farmhouse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour After a long search for a colour that matched a particular shade on my lovely strawberry thief duck egg curtains. Cromarty matched beautifully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect color that is both calming and warm! At first I went for Mizzle but thought it was slightly too dark and then went for Cromarty. Absolutely love love love the colour! It provides a very chilled atmosphere in my living room while not being too cool. Combines perfectly with all the other materials and colors in my living room, it's very neutral and colourful at the same time. You can definitely see it's good quality paint since there are no color differences and the paint goes on the walls quite smoothly.
