Pavilion Gray

No.242

A cool mid grey

This classic mid grey was originally created for a bespoke pavilion, but is also reminiscent of an elegant 18th century Swedish colour. One of the Architectural Neutrals, the subtle blue undertones of Pavilion Gray add a contemporary touch and sense of spaciousness. Combine with Dimpse, Blackened or Manor House Gray in any combination for a scheme that is perfect for the modern family home. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones 

Complementary white: Blackened

Pavilion Gray is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 88.

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 132 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 Lovely grey for front door. True pale grey. Tried various grey sample pots prior to purchase & this was favourite. Nice gloss finish. Easy to apply. Dried fairly quickly. Very happy with colour & result. Would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour and very enjoyable to paint with We used the exterior eggshell in pavilion grey to overhaul our front door. The finish is lovely, and the paint was very enjoyable to paint with, as all our experiences with the farrow and ball paints have previously been. Please find attached a photo of our new hall, with pavilion grey on the door, all white on the remainder of the woodwork and upper walls and Hague blue on the lower walls. We are thrilled with the results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good choice for an update. Very pleased with the colour and especially how well it complements "Blackened" which we used on the ceiling and woodwork.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Average Beautiful colour but says it is wipeable.. tried to wipe the tiniest little mark off with a slightly damp cloth and it’s marked all the wall and will have to repaint again. The paint I had before I could scrub and it wouldn’t mark. Wouldn’t dare purchase for a kitchen or bathroom. This wasn’t in a high traffic area it was my living room so can’t inagine what a nightmare it would be in high traffic areas of the house.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It’s ok Love the colour when I had finally finished (well half finished) I do a lot of decorating, probably decorate my house once or twice a year (I have a little OCD when it comes to marks on the walls, I absolutely hate them so yes I’m constantly painting lol) anyway I’ve use a lot of brands but never used this brand before, don’t think I will bother again, yes the colour is beautiful but took two coats as first coat was so bad, I painted over matt cream walls but felt like I was going over silk, took hours to almost complete (ran out of paint so going to have to get another tin just to do a small wall which is annoying, I’ve painted this room a fair few times and never before needed more then I brought) so yes love the colour but quality seemed poor and very hard to work with

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very impressed I'm very impressed with the ease of use of the paint. I usually use a roller, but with this paint I used a brush and was very impressed at the finished results. Love the colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this paint Brilliant paint quality as usual and an amazing colour that I love to watch change throughout the day as the light changes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from There's paint and then there's Farrow and Ball paint There's always a bit of a premium to pay when you want something special and having once re-painted my house with F&B exterior eggshell I wanted the same for my newly built summer house. I could barely wait to get through the preparation and primer stages so I could enjoy the smooth application and covering power of the Pavilion Gray, F&B painting is a genuine pleasure.
