French Gray

No.18

A soothing green grey

French Gray is really much more green than grey, but characterfully flits between the two depending on the light and time of day. Taking inspiration from French decoration and wallpapers used in the 19th century, it creates the most relaxed of rooms. This soothing hue is perfect for exterior woodwork and a particular favourite for front doors in our matt Exterior Eggshell, or garden furniture where it sits seamlessly amongst the greenery. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Lime White

French Gray is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 238.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect colour for our bedroom. After trying a few sample pots we decided on French Gray, and I’m so glad we did! It is so calming and such a subtle green.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning colour I wanted to give my front door a little bit of colour. I decided on French Gray as I thought it would give my country home a timeless feel. This colour really compliments the stone work and not only is the colour beautiful the paint itself it’s so nice to use. Definitely worth the price. Now I just need to order more paint to paint my windows!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favourites I was looking for an earthy green for the panelling in my bright sunroom and found French Gray to be perfect, paired with Off White on the walls above. The paint goes for miles so, whilst not cheap, is great value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A new convert to Farrow and Ball 2nd pot I have bought to bring a bit of interest to what could be a very bland renovation of a 1972 bungalow. Learnt that the paint goes a really long way so bought the smaller size this time. French Gray is definitely a green rather than a grey but we were made aware of this on the website. Used it to paint a panel we built behind a headboard and it looks fantastic.
