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 165.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from French Gray I purchased a month or so back - used for the front door and shed. Two coats were applied for the front door, application and finish are good. One coat applied to shed. Really happy with the colour, it seems to have revitalised an old shed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colour and good coverage This is the second time we have used this paint for our 'summer' house, which we designed to allow us to BBQ whatever the weather. So despite being smoked on occasion, the paintwork stands up well.
