A warm grey with lilac undertones

Pair with Skimming Stone for the most flattering and subtle scheme. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Strong White

Dove Tale is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 51.

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 Wonderful! Just finished decorating my hallway with this. Most people would think it’s too dark but I like dark! I also always paint the doors and woodwork the same colour and this looks great. It also looks great against the other colours in the rooms. I love it!
