Skimming Stone

No.241

A warm light grey

This stony off white takes its name from a 19th century skim, or plaster colour, but often reminds us of childhood afternoons skimming stones. With its warm light grey undertones, Skimming Stone is extremely versatile and particularly suited to soothing bedroom schemes. One of our Contemporary Neutrals, it sits with the lighter Strong White and darker Elephant's Breath for a clean and contemporary look, but can also be used in a darker statement scheme alongside Pelt or London Clay. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: Strong White

Skimming Stone is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 240.

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.

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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colour grey / beige tones Fabulous colour and goes with beige or grey accessories. Lovely to use and good coverage. Teamed it with the dove tail on the feature wall and was worried it would all look far to grey but it doesn’t and it’s perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely paint - not the right shade for us Bought a sample pot - the colour is very warm, quite yellow, so not the right shade for our room, but we ended up buying 5 other testers and settled on Ammonite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely paint! Bought this for my hall and absolutely delighted with the colour. It was exactly what I was looking for and really brightens the space. Looks lovely with my white doors (F&B Pure White). Lovely paint to work with too. F&B will definitely be my first port of call for any new paint from now on.
