We used French Gray for our hall, stairs and landing. Initial concerns about it being too dark were soon dispelled. This is more of a green grey and is a very stylish and deeply pigmented colour which changes hue depending on the light. It contrasts beautifully with natural wood and white doors.

This is a beautiful greenish gray color. This is a color that can pull a room together while at the same time, it does not slip into the background. I strongly suggest purchasing a sample to see how the lighting during different times affects its appearance . It is a pleasant alternative to the more strictly neutral shades.

An excellent product
This paint colour has been used to match Cornish granite. The subtle change between grey and green in different lights is lovely. It has brought the period building up to date with a degree of sophistication.

Fabulous paint, colour, quality, texturetv
I purchased the French Gray Eggshell paint after a recommendation from a friend, I wasn't sure about the colour but after discussing my thoughts with the stockist they suggested French Grey Eggshell.
We have a house in Spain and wanted to paint over very dark stained indoor window shutters to lighten the room, whilst maintaining a traditional village house feel.
We gave them 2 coats of the undercoat and 2 coats of topcoat, and the finished result is just perfect.
The paint is very easy to apply and drys very quickly.
The finished result is a beautiful grey/pale green shade,which changes subtly depending on sunlight or artificial light.
I took the paint to Spain from a stockist in Derbyshire, but am delighted to find out that there is a stockist 15 minutes drive from my house in Spain, where I can order small amounts if required, which I am sure it will be.
I think we may start a new trend in Spain,Adios dark wood stain and hola hola Farrow and Ball French Grey.

everything about this paint, if you follow the instructions and have patience make it fabulous...my only ? would be the naming of the colours, yes they are unique and tantalizing but maybe not always what you expect!...French grey sounds romantic and you might expect a lovely shade of grey, but it is really a subtle and beautiful shade of pale green ...looks fresh and classy on my stairway doors though, however I do think an F&B colour chart and trying the sample pots are essential before purchasing your paint, having said this, it can become quite expensive if you are trying more than one colour in the same palet as the difference in shades can be very subtle...so choose carefully and don't be seduced by the colour name and you will have paint work that all your visitors envy !!

Great depth of color
After many samples and much back and forth between paint stores, I settled on F&B's French Gray for the walls in my kitchen. It is such a beautiful color. The color can look more green or gray depending on the time of day, but is always beautiful. It has a lot of depth to it. Love it.

A great eggshell paint
Excellent eggshell finish, easy to apply, great colour and quick drying. Will see how it fairs against the Scottish rural weather!
