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 132.

Back in 2010, we moved to an entirely water based range of finishes, becoming the first in the industry to do so. These low-odor, low-VOC finishes are easy to clean without harmful solvents. They also meet child- and baby-safe requirements in accordance with The Canada Cribs, Cradles and Bassinets Regulations, Canada Toy Regulations (SOR/2011-17) – Section 23 and ASTM F963 – 17 - Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Toy Safety.


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.


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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection Excellent service- Excellent paint! I purchased Cromarty- a sophisticated sage green with grey tones. It has a vintage feel and perfectly suited the styling of my bedroom. Well matched with grey, pinks and lilacs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I was really nervous be about choosing cromarty because I'd read a few negative reviews and my tester area on the wall looked very strong and quite grey. However I am so glad we just went for it. It's a beautiful, calm, sophisticated colour. In my room it looks like an offbeat, soft, hazy green. Not grey and not too strong. It's a dark room too but the overall effect is warm and peaceful. Goes perfectly with our dark oak floors and white woodwork. Very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely! I have had my kitchen walls painted today in Cromarty. I have been looking for a colour for a while. Lots of tester pots later I discovered this beautiful colour. It looks lovely with porcelain coloured cabinets, wooden worktops and pale sage/grey metro tiles. It is calming and clean-looking. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect neutral for a color lover I painted my bedroom with Cromarty and I absolutely love it! It goes well with reds, pinks, purples and various other jewel toned colors. I couldn’t be happier with this color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brightens our Day Having to convert a room to an office we wanted a colour which was bright, focusing and what we fell was up lifting. Love the finish of the modern emulsion provides a slight sheen and allows for wipe clean. We used the undercoat and will always do as it provides a good base and only two top coats required.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour! We tried a few different sample pots and then bought Cromarty to paint the radiator cover in our hall. Gorgeous green grey colour, sophisticated, warm and lifts a room which doesn't have too much natural light - are planning to paint the door and coat rack to match.
