Cromarty

No.285

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 101.

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

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.

Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful paint First time painting with Farrow & Ball. Tried a few samples before settling on Cromarty for our living room. Went on beautifully, needed just two coats and the finish is perfect. The colour changes throughout the day as you'll see in the photos. Can't wait to pick other colours for more rooms!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely hallway transformation Wanted a different colour from cream. Didn’t bother with a tester. Needed 3 coats. But love the transformation. Colour goes from a green grey, to a light olive in the evening. Never disappointed with Farrow and Ball.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding paint As a new F&B customer I can safely say that I consider their paint to be the finest that I have ever used. The range of colours and quality of finish is truly outstanding. I am a F&B convert.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beautiful colour This is a beautiful colour. On my walls it is like looking into costal mist. It is peaceful and has a stillness to it. I could die in a room painted this colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used in Sunny south westerly facing dinning room Used in sunny south westerly facing dinning room. Previously painted in Clunch. Wanted a change something with a little more dept and character. Chromerty in this room takes blue/ grey tones in strong sunlight, the green tones more noticeable when the room is darker. (Originally tried Chromerty match pot for our North Easterly facing sitting room, didn’t seem to work at all in this room looking very much like light green, with no evidence of the enhancing underlying blue or grey tones). Used modern emulsion and egg shell for durability as this is a much used room. Covered well with two coats, used just over half of a 5 litre tin. Lovely paint easy to apply, no splatter from roller. Used Winbourne White on woodwork and ceiling. My favoured colour is pointing for darker rooms, but find it sometimes too creamy in strong sunlight. Very pleased with the finished result.
