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 258.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour for 1930s pebble dash outside house We have just had the upper part of our house painted in Cornforth White, with the garage door and front door painted in Inchyra Blue. It looks stunning and the neighbours have already commented. We used the primer first to help the paint stick to the pebble dash, which was good advice from FandB. The painter had to use 5 pots, which shocked us for such a small area, but worth it to cover up the ugly pebble dash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Most Beautiful Grey If you're looking for a light grey color that won't darken a room, this is it. Not too light, not too dark, it adds freshness to any room. The estate emulsion finish is absolutely gorgeous and the fact that the paint doesn't smell at all is amazing. I think I'm a Farrow & Ball fan for life!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this paint! After some research during lockdown I thought we should splurge on a paint colour we wanted with amazing reviews regardless of price and thank goodness we did! It’s the perfect warm grey shade I was looking for. Looks excellent against our white furniture and features and beige sofas. Not too dark in the shade/night and not too bright in the sun spots of our living and dining rooms. Very impressed and won’t hesitate using F&B in the future to get the colour I’m after.
