Stony Ground

No.211

A classic stone

This strong neutral is one of our most popular wallpaper background colours, so we couldn’t resist adding it to our collection of richly pigmented paints. A classic stone colour, Stony Ground has a slight underlying red which adds warmth and creates a soft beige finish. It pairs incredibly well with the lighter Shaded White or stronger Mouse’s Back for a quietly cohesive scheme. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Slipper Satin

Stony Ground is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 42.

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 #1 F&B Paint! I have used Stony Ground for a number of years and it is a fantastic colour. It is a warm earthy tone reading between pale beige and green. It is never drab and pairs really well with muted fabrics or more contemporary pieces. I have used it in rooms with Lime White for skirting and wood work, but also as a wood work eggshell against Mouses Back and Slipper Satin. All three combinations work brilliantly. I find for walls two coats is enough for walls, but wood work will need three coats. In summary, oOf all of the F&B paints, I think it is probably the best allround colour that would suit any home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kazabaloo Paint finish?? Hi Kazabaloo, Did you use modern or estate eggshell on your stairwell? Looks good by the way, going for Stony Ground ourselves. Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb as always Purchased this to paint an item of furniture, I have done this previously with a different colour as recommended by Cotswold Company. This paint is superb, covers beautifully and you would never know it had been done. The only drawback is I have had to order the colours direct as not in stock at B&Q or Homebase but not such an issue as the service and delivery are also exceptional.
