A relaxed brown based neutral

This earthy colour sits somewhere between the more traditional Oxford Stone and greyer Elephant's Breath. Though muted, it is incredibly uplifting and reminds us of lazy days by the sea - hence sharing its name with the bus that whisks New Yorkers out of the hot city to the similarly coloured sandy beaches of the Hamptons.

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Dimity

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful woodwork Jitney has transform the woodwork in my hallway. Originally ginger wood stain and varnish framed the characterful pine doors . Now the subtle low sheen and neutral shade has made me appreciate the doors all over again and the exposed brick has come into its own too . Thankyou F And B . Thankyou Jitney !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colour, lovely finish Jitney estate eggshell. Bought this for indoor paintwork and radiators and it looks great. Paired it with a paler stone on the walls and it gives a really nice contrast. Colour is lovely, not too dark and not as much yellow hue as Oxford or London Stone. Great finish as always with F&B paint. Very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Colour and quality Bought this paint to cover hall and landing. Really smooth going on with very little shading on the fist coat. Just done second coat and it looks great. If grey could be a warm colour this is it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect colour! Bought this paint a month ago! The colour is just perfect for what I was looking for and couldn’t find anywhere else, it’s a griege/putty colour but with a warm tone! After using it for my wall I had some left over so used it to also upcycle a mirror and some picture frames! You do need two coats but it looks amazing after!
