Light Gray


A stony grey green

A stony neutral, this traditional grey green was originally used as a colour name in the 9th century - an ancient name for a timeless colour. The subtle green base of our Light Gray brings an unsurpassed depth of colour when used on walls. It is the perfect accent for all our Traditional Neutrals, used on furniture and joinery in many Off-White rooms alongside Old White. It can also be combined with Stiffkey Blue to create a very relaxed, almost mismatched feel. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Slipper Satin

Light Gray is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 55.

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 The perfect colour Used this for my Irish cottage exterior windows. Stunning. Used the mid tones primers which is essential in getting the true colour of the paint. Very happy indeed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What’s not to like? Whilst a little more expensive than most, it does what it says on the tin! The colours are fab and delivery is relatively swift for those living more remotely. I’ve recently converted to estate emulsion as 2 large dogs required something more wipeable than the more traditional. Hand on heart, I prefer the original, but this will do just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A grey that is actually biscuit I was so taken by Hague Blue in my study that I kept painting. I chose Light Gray for two feature walls in the hallway (rest is All White) and I’m very pleased with the result. Even the wall on the staircase which extends two floors is seamless - fantastic paint!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellence in paint and service I am totally redoing the interiors of my house and Farrow and Ball is the only paint I will have in my house. I have used it for years and get nothing but compliments on the look of the paint, ( not my decorating, but the paint gets rave reviews). The service is exceptional and the paint arrives very fast. During these Covid times with my compromised immune system, decorating with Farrow and Ball keeps me sane and lets me look forward to when I can entertain again. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
