French Gray

No.18

A soothing green grey

French Gray is really much more green than grey, but characterfully flits between the two depending on the light and time of day. Taking inspiration from French decoration and wallpapers used in the 19th century, it creates the most relaxed of rooms. This soothing hue is perfect for exterior woodwork and a particular favourite for front doors in our matt Exterior Eggshell, or garden furniture where it sits seamlessly amongst the greenery. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Lime White

French Gray is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 115.

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.


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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Depth and character of F+B colours We have used French Grey in various parts of our house and keep coming back to it because we love it. It works really well with natural wood finishes and in this instance we have paired French Grey half-height panelling with Calamine Estate Emulsion above which works really well. Calum

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great paint Always pleased with Farrow and Ball Paints, Yes they are not the cheapest on the market, however, as with most things in life you get what you pay for. For someone who hates painting using a product that covers so well and also cleans up in water takes away a lot of pain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Colour French Gray -My Favourite F&B colour Just put up the Christmas decorations and I must saying I am loving the French Gray in our dining room with Wimborne White on coving. Went with the green theme and used Holly and Ivy from our Garden for the chandelier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mysterious color! Immediately struck by the high quality of the paint in the sample, I see that French Gray is one of those colors containing Mystery: changing light subtly alters the color.
