Cornforth White

No.228

An understated grey

Cornforth White is the mid tone in the group of Easy Neutrals which are totally understated and extremely versatile. Neither too warm nor too cool, Cornforth White sits contentedly between Ammonite and Purbeck Stone to create a hushed and calming retreat. Named in memory of John Cornforth, the revered architectural historian, contrast with Wevet to enhance its grey qualities. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: Wevet

Cornforth White is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 179.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shade! Love this colour! It’s a pebble shade of grey. We got the sample and it’s just what we are looking for. Hoping the wallpaper sample will match then we are ready to go!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A cool and sophisticated mood I had a quite difficult dilemma to solve: renovating a XIX century aristocratic mansion in Rome, with marble floor, original frescos on the ceiling and painted frame on the wall. It was already been renovated a few years ago - not with much style -, especially about colors. The paint chosen for the wall was a yellow-orange “spatolato” and it matched too match with floor and ceiling (of the same tones); even the outstanding doors were painted with a light yellow paint so that the general atmosphere was heavy, ridondande, little bit depressing. I had to find a way to give the mansion a new look without any substantial or structural modification. So I bet everything on colors and tapestry. To cool down the “yellow-fever” I need something cool, decisive but not challenging. I choose CORNFORTH WHITE modern emulsion for the wall and the result is amazing: everything now is chic, light and sophisticated. The purple undertone of this light very grey deals perfectly white the floors, the XIX frescos and the painted frames. And it changes quite a lot depending on the light: if natural is more purple, if artificial it becomes more worm. Super satisfied!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning colour Just decorated my home office...after reading lots of reviews I went with Cornforth White and Inchyra Blue, with the paintwork in All White. Love the combination and really happy with the final result. Cornforth White takes on different tones at different times of the day...more of a stone grey than grey grey IMO. Now considering toning it with Strong White in my lounge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful complex colour Painted my north facing dining room in Cornforth White. I love the way the colour can appear bright, but in a different light rather darker.
