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 112.

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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great paint I brought this paint for our shutters in our cottage. The colour is beautiful- it seams to change through the day, getting greener as the room gets darker. Really easy to apply would use the egg shell again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sometimes gray sometimes green I am so happy with the colour of my lounge and the way the light changes it’s appearance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful finish Painted are main living room in this colour. Was a little sceptical as the first 2 coats were a bit washy. It did take 4 coats to get a uniform shade but once done the colour and finish was great. Went for the Matt emulsion on the walls and eggshell on the skirting board. The eggshell was easier to work with. When the light hits the shade is a little lighter.
