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 216.

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 One of my favourite colours! I have used French Gray in so many places now. I really love this colour. It looks different in different lights and in different rooms, but always a warm grey with a greenish tone, but can also look bluish. Such a peaceful and interesting colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality paint - looks great I bought this paint a couple of weeks ago to update our conservatory. The paint goes on very well and gives a nice even finish. The depth of colour sets it apart cheaper alternatives.
