Dove Tale

A warm grey with lilac undertones

Typical of the colours used by the bohemian Bright Young Things between the wars, it is the perfect choice for the bedroom as its gentle lilac undertone create a soft and inviting feel. Pair with Skimming Stone for the most flattering and subtle scheme. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Strong White

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour and covered really well! Super tester pot. Plenty in there to get a good coverage and determine which was the right colour. Went for Purbeck Stone in the end as it was slightly lighter but all great shades!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely finish Dove Tale estate eggshell - great product. Covers well and has a lovely finish: worth the extra over cheaper paints. A lovely contemporary, yet traditional colour (varying from a warm grey to a mushroom with hints of lilac in different lights - quite stunning) - used on wainscoting in my 400 year old Cornish farmhouse. Beautiful results. Very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely quality paint I bought this test pot for my new attic room, but ended up using another Farrow & Ball colour. It is very helpful to be able to try colours out. This paint is lovely quality, easy to apply with a really matt chalky finish and great choice of subtle colours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the one ! Having bought umpteen samples of varying shades of grey,putty, beige....I think this is it . A warm grey rather than too cool. Sample painted on a decent sized card to see it in different light -- it`s looking good ...well, almost everywhere.
