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 243.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Delivery Service Needed a tester pot for a quick patch job and I couldn't find the right shade in any of my local hardware stores. It was perfect for the requirements. Item was couriered at no additional charge. Very impressed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A truly beautiful colour! Painted the hall, stairs and landing with Cornforth white and teamed it with Off Black. I’m am thrilled with the result. The colour changes throughout the day from the palest grey to a beige. This colour will not disappoint. Both Off Black and Cornforth white required one coat. The paint Is lovely to work with

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning paint We painted out staircase and ballustrades, architraves and doors in this paint teamed up with Wevet emulsion on the walls and it Looks stunning. Quality paint we have F&B all through the house and would not use anything else. It’s obviously more expensive than your normal paint but the results are beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to work with Have painted most of our woodwork in this colour. So much better than white. It is a clean grey. It hides dust! Takes 4 coats but it's like painting with emulsion. Easy!
