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 West 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 84.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exemplary service Color is gorgeous. But I wonder if there are some pro-tips you could include with delivery for application. This paint needs a steady, consistent hand. Super impressed that it got to me so quickly during these trying times. Thank You!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful finish. I have used dead flat Charleston Gray in a piece of wooden bedroom furniture. It has a beautiful matt finish and the colour is very subtle. It is also very easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charleston Gray Modern Emulsion We had a new shaker style kitchen installed last autumn in Elephant’s Breath with both Charleston Gray and Skimming Stone walls. Due to wear and tear next to the fridge/freezer the wall needed a refresh and I decided to buy the modern emulsion. It was easy to apply and so much more practical for the kitchen!
