Charleston Gray

No.243

A deep, warm grey

A warm and muted grey, Charleston Gray is named after the much loved home of the equally artistic and intellectual Bloomsbury Group in East Sussex. Very popular for use in modern living rooms, its brown undertones create a warm, enveloping and hushed atmosphere. It is the perfect accent colour for all the warm Contemporary Neutrals or can be used on woodwork with rich Brinjal. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones

Complementary white: Skimming Stone

Charleston Gray is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 103.

ECO-FRIENDLY AND CHILD-SAFE

Back in 2010, we moved our entire range to an eco-friendly water base that’s low odour, low VOC and child-safe, becoming the first in the industry to do so. 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.


QUALITY FINISHES

Our paint colours are 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.


SAFETY INFORMATION

All Farrow & Ball finishes except Limewash contain isothiazolinones, which may produce an allergic reaction. Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes. For further information about our products, including guidance on safe use and application, click here to view our advice pages.

WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals including acetaldehyde, which is known to the State of California to cause cancer. For more information, go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I took a chance Charleston Gray was the darkest color I considered for our small powder room but I wanted something dramatic. Wow! So glad I took a chance! The windowless room looks amazing and the color really highlights the black and white floor and granite vanity top. I’ve become a high fan of Farrow and Ball and will use it again. The service and advice I’ve received from the Chicago store has been top-notch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good coverage, great colour, nice washable finish Bought to repaint our new kitchen. Rooms looks very smart again. Pity Farrow & Ball paint is so expensive otherwise we'd get the whole flat repainted...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this colour We looked around for a while to find the right grey to work with our sofa, this is perfect. It's not in your face, it's our first experience with farrow and ball, and we love it.
