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 144.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast response and delivery I needed to take this paint to France and was able to order and get it delivered so efficiently. The paint quality is so superior to any of the locally made paints si we have used it on two dorma windows that have previously not weathered well ech winter. Took it back to basics,used a Farrow and Ball primer/undercoat then two of the externall eggshell. Went on really well, I expect this will provide the solution this time. Always happy with the range and colours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent paint and colour We used Parma Grey Modern Eggshell to paint the interior of our wooden conservatory and bookcases from a dark Cedar Red to this lovely light and modern 'coastal' mid-blue. It's easy to use and apply and has great coverage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Paint For the last 7 years my external woodwork has been painted Parma Grey. It goes well with the granite walls. This is the first time I have repainted and the paint has stood up well to the Cornish weather.
