Manor House Gray


A cool architectural grey

Named after the houses traditionally inhabited by the local lord, Manor House Gray is a definite grey which retains its colour in all lights, especially when contrasted with Wevet. Cooler and cleaner in feel than Charleston Gray, this Architectural Neutral is very popular in hard-edged contemporary homes that are conducive to minimal living and is often used alongside the more dramatic Railings. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones 

Complementary white: Blackened

Manor House Gray is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 175.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Revival We have always enjoyed painting our walls and ceilings using your paint, so we decided to use your modern eggshell paint on a chest of drawers. We painted the carcass in Manor House grey and the draw fronts in Pavillion grey with the draw knobs in the darker colour. The result is stunning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great paint A speedy delivery of modern eggshell in Manor House gray arrived and the mammoth task of painting our kitchen cupboards started. They were wooden doors unpainted but now look amazing after 3 coats each inside and out with this paint. It’s a great colour and has totally transformed my kitchen!
