Castle Gray

No. 92  

Castle Gray 4.4 5 9 9
Great Colour I used Castle Grey in my hallway which has no natural light. The colour was true and looks great, i would say it is more green than blue or grey. September 9, 2014
Love the colour We picked this colour with out even buying a sample pot, quite brave I know but didn't disappoint after already using this brand before no hesitation, we picked this colour for our kitchen dining area, our garden is very green with lots of trees so these colour compliment each other well, it really is a lovely colour people do comment on when visit and ask what colour etc it is, love it!

Castle grey Great paint. Fantastic colour. Wonderful finish. Easy to use. June 16, 2014
Try this lovely blue-gray Chose this for our dining room which has very wide French windows directly out onto garden so wanted something that complimented the garden view. Most reviews of this shade seemed to suggest it was used on external paintwork eg doors but it is a wonderful colour for interiors. Subtle and warm, sometimes appears vaguely green but I think mainly bluey-gray. It is fresh and bright whilst still remaining calm. Great against wood, or white paintwork and at the back of the bookcase to highlight. Definitely recommend this shade, very happy with it. March 25, 2014
Stunning! We took a deep breath and painted our internal beams and woodwork in Castle Gray and it looks absolutely stunning, particularly against the 'Mizzle' walls. It changes colour throughout the day depending upon natural light - sometimes a subtle green hue, sometimes blue. Can't recommend the combination highly enough as well as the quality and finish of the paint. As always - excellent service from F&B. August 20, 2013
You can afford to be a bit bolder with the shades chosen for exterior use We had originally painted the exterior wood and metal work with Vert de Terre, but although a nice colour, we found it far too pale, particularly on the sunniest aspects of the house. The change to Castle Gray achieved what we had originally visualised, it was very easy to apply and gave a great finish. In future we would definitely try the sample pots and test on all elevations, rather than relying on the colour chart, as where the paint is used on the exterior, not just whether you are painting inside or outside will alter the outcome considerably. As a footnote, we have used F&B exterior paints before and always found them to be durable. June 4, 2013
Real depth I used this colour to contrast woodwork against James White in my bedrooms. Very pleased with the depth of colour and added real substance to the green tones of the walls. Was one of the easiest F&B colours to apply. May 13, 2013
Water based paint for external use??? I bought this thinking it was a high quality oil based paint for external use only to find out its waterbased with a very short life if used externaly, may find a use for it some where inside. October 3, 2012
