Manor House Gray


A cool architectural grey

Named after the houses traditionally inhabited by the local lord, Manor House Gray is a definite grey which retains its colour in all lights, especially when contrasted with Wevet. Cooler and cleaner in feel than Charleston Gray, this Architectural Neutral is very popular in hard-edged contemporary homes that are conducive to minimal living and is often used alongside the more dramatic Railings. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones 

Complementary white: Blackened

Manor House Gray is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 154.

Easy to clean without harmful solvents, in tins that can be recycled again and again, our paints help to reduce the environmental impact of redecorating your home.


Every one of our paint colours is available in a range of durable interior and exterior paint finishes, each rigorously tested to ensure an exceptional depth of colour and long-lasting finish. For the very best results, we always recommend using a Farrow & Ball Primer & Undercoat – see above for the correct tone for this colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kitchen cupboards makeover After much contemplation decided to update our kitchen cupboards with Farrow and Ball Manor House Gray Estate Eggshell. We did the makeover ourselves following the information given being the preparation of the doors, using the Farrow & Ball Dark tones Interior wood primer and undercoat and applying the Estate emulsion (we decided to use a brush) on Shaker doors. We were ready to renew our kitchen if things didn't go as planned but painting the units & doors that we already had in place was the best decision we could have made. So pleased that we took the plunge, the finish and the colour are excellent. Thank you Farrow & Ball!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Manor House Grey I’ve just painted my walks and all wood work in Manor House grey. Matt on the walls and eggshell on wood work and doors. It’s the most beautiful grey I ever used. I will definitely be painting another room with this fabulous paint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Struggling to find the colour I had in my “mind”. A tester pot was perfect with enough paint to try in various positions! Certainly prevents making an expensive mistake.
