50 Shades of Grey… Paint!

Grey is one of the most fashionable paint colours of the moment. But as the title of this blog post suggests, it’s also a colour that’s available in a multitude of shades and hues. Here are a few of our favourites…

 

Farrow&Ball – Pravillion Gray, No. 242

Pavillion Gray works particularly well as a woodwork colour when contrasted with Blackened or Strong White on walls to create the relaxed, much loved Gustavian look. It is also a classic mid grey wall colour, cooler than Cornforth White, it is perfect for the modern family house.

Farrow&Ball – Amonite No. 274

Ammonite is named after the treasured fossils often found on the Dorset coast. It has a fantastically understated modest quality, working perfectly with all the Easy Grey group. It is not gritty or industrial but has a subtle grey tone that suits all contemporary homes. To make it feel more grey, it is best paired with All White.

The Little Green Company – Welcome Pale

This paint colour is so pale it’s almost white, so it’s a natural light reflector, and gives a wonderful sense of space. As you can see from the photo, furniture and soft furnishings look fantastic set against such a blank canvas, and colours really pop.

Designer Guild – Pebble / Farrow&Ball Down Pipe, No. 26

Warm greys work well in bathrooms as the colour looks great under electric light. It also looks great with bright colours, so try adding a bunch of bright flowers or a colourful art piece to the wall.

Farrow&Ball, Purbeck Stone, No. 275

Purbeck Stone which resembles the colour of the stone in the Isle of Purbeck, is the strongest of Farrow&Ball’s Easy Neutrals, with which it is the perfect counterbalance. Less cool and softer than Manor House Gray, it is the perfect tone for well-lit modern rooms.
