Skimming Stone

No.241

A warm light grey

This stony off white takes its name from a 19th century skim, or plaster colour, but often reminds us of childhood afternoons skimming stones. With its warm light grey undertones, Skimming Stone is extremely versatile and particularly suited to soothing bedroom schemes. One of our Contemporary Neutrals, it sits with the lighter Strong White and darker Elephant's Breath for a clean and contemporary look, but can also be used in a darker statement scheme alongside Pelt or London Clay. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: Strong White

Skimming Stone is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 164.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant paint! I bought this paint to refresh the kitchen units. It has exceeded my expectations in every way. It goes on very easily and dries quickly with hardly any odour. It dries to a really smooth, professional finish. Definitely the best paint for wood that I have ever used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning colour! I’m so pleased with this colour! Skimming Stone is a really soft, calming colour that would look brilliant in any room! After moving into a new house with a dark red walls this was a breath of fresh air! It’s creamy grey but very subtle grey but with a hint of beige. I’d paint the entire house in but my husband likes all room different!
