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 4.7 out of 5 by 93.

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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Calming colour Paint application is great, really good to work with. Colour is a touch more blue than I was expecting but it does give a calming feel to our living room. Paired with pigeon on the cupboards which has worked well.
