Parma Gray

No.27

A cool mid blue

Reading as a cool blue, Parma Gray is another colour attributed to the great colourist John Fowler. Used as the backdrop to numerous costume dramas, it creates the perfect period feel when contrasted with Wimborne White. Though its cool nature can feel quite formal when contrasted with a bright white, it is a firm favourite for those who prefer a clean and crisp finish. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Wimborne White

Parma Gray is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 123.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour and finish We changed our front door from black to Parma Grey and are delighted with the results - a passerby stopped to find out what colour it was as she wanted to use it too. Good covers and each additional coat adds depth to the colour

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Farrow and Ball Parma gray I bought Parma gray modern emulsion to decorate my new bathroom which has a traditional look with a modern edge. The paint is thick and the coverage is second to none. The colour intensity is luxurious and the 'modern emulsion' is suitable for areas of high moisture. I am very happy with the end result

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning colour and easy to apply I used this on some furniture, and have had so many compliments on it. In fact, many friends have now bought it to use in their house!! Just a note, it is called “gray”, but definitely more of a blue! That’s what I wanted, and couldn’t be more happy.
