Light Gray

No.17

A stony grey green

A stony neutral, this traditional grey green was originally used as a colour name in the 9th century - an ancient name for a timeless colour. The subtle green base of our Light Gray brings an unsurpassed depth of colour when used on walls. It is the perfect accent for all our Traditional Neutrals, used on furniture and joinery in many Off-White rooms alongside Old White. It can also be combined with Stiffkey Blue to create a very relaxed, almost mismatched feel. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Clunch

Light Gray is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 41.

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.

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 So easy to use Rich neutral colour that can take on any surrounding contrast. Such good quality that it only required 2 thin roller coats on top of newly plastered walls. So easy to work with. Although expensive outright purchase it works out comparable with any other standard brand on the market but this paint is Virtually mess free (little splash back from the roller) and No fumes! I also had an issue with over-ordering, which was sorted out without query, collected and credited within 5 working days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the best I never buy any other paint - it's excellent quality and the colours are matchless. Because of the depth of pigment and the need to see all options in all lights, one has to try all of them in situ morning, noon and night. It's worth it. But you can confidently ignore the names of the colours : 'light grey' it absolutely isn't!
