Cromarty

No.285

A muted green grey

This very light green grey is named after the Cromarty Firth estuary, a place of swirling mists mentioned daily in the Shipping Forecast. A neutral yet atmospheric colour, Cromarty brings a muted softness to any room, creating an easy to use finish that is neither too green nor too grey. A shade lighter than Mizzle, it works beautifully when grouped with Blue Gray or Pigeon.

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Shadow White

Cromarty is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 42.

Product Information 
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

Every one of our 132 paint colours is 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.


SAFETY INFORMATION

All Farrow & Ball finishes except Limewash contain isothiazolinones, which may produce an allergic reaction. Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes.

Customer Reviews 
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour! Amazing paint Cromarty in Modern emulsion was an absolute dream to work with! I used it with the primer (for the first time) and that really made a difference. One coat primer and two coats modern emulsion, although one would have probably been enough. F&B isn’t as easy to use as some of the other paints but when you take your time you can’t beat the finish it gives. The room is absolutely stunning now, will always use modern emulsion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reviving pine furniture Painted an undercoat and two coats of Cromerty Estate Eggshell and Joa's White on an old pine dresser to give a truly successfully finish. Keeping it clean and taking time - I am very pleased with how the paint went on and how it dried. This scheme suits our ornaments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from subtle and soft still painting stairs with this. Perfect. Has enough depth to make the Allwhite walls look clean and yet pale and shadowy too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour I love this colour in our hallway, it has a lovely tranquil feel about it and all our family and friends have commented on it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Calm It’s a really lovely colour, very calm, blue - green, not too dark nor light. I used this for a small attic single bedroom on all walls and ceiling and it works really well. Used with Wimborne white on the woodwork, a great tone for this colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cromarty A truly beautiful and versatile colour that covers previous paint completely and easily. Great service from F&B in getting the paint all the way up to my home in Sutherland.
