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 35.

Product Information 
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.

Customer Reviews 
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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic colours We purchased 5 sample pots hoping we would like one of the colours. Our problem is we love them all and can’t decide!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy to use After deciding to use Farrow and Ball for one room we now have it in every room. Beautiful finish, easy to apply and easy clean up as well as beautiful colours. Quick delivery and a great customer service team.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great backdrop My daughter used this in her bedroom as a backdrop to her scheme of grey, inky blue and off white. With dark wood and copper accessories it looks absolutely stunning. French grey has the amazing ability to fuse virtually any colour combination to itself, and pull a scheme together. I have decided to use it in my back sitting room with petrol blue and orange!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stoney Green We used this darker shade in a large room. In natural daylight it looks a dark Stoney brown, and in artificial light it has an earthy brown/green look. Fabulous depth of color as expected from F&B.
