Purbeck Stone

No. 275  

Purbeck Stone 5 5 9 9
lovely warm grey Goes on like cream, looks great in my Lounge as a feature wall. Other 3 walls are in Slipper satin. The grey is a lovely warm colour. August 4, 2014
A lovely new subtle colour I love this colour as it has the ability to tone with so many others. May 15, 2014
Good quality colour! Very pleased with the finish. Expensive but worth it. May 13, 2014
Amazing grey with putty undertones We've recently painted the hallway of our victorian house in this. It looks grey in some areas and putty like upstairs against an oatmeal carpet but grey downstairs against the tiled hall. I thought it might be too dark when I tried the tester but really pleased we went for this over skimming stone. I found ammonite, blackened and Cornforth white all had blue undertones in our hallway but this had none. We've also used this on the woodwork in the sitting room against the walls in stiffkey blue. The woodwork paint looks a much lighter grey than the walls and against the blue is a definite grey with no putty at all. The two rooms link really well. April 29, 2014
Beautiful Colour I bought this paint for the walls & woodwork of an L shaped kitchen dining room that faces S/SW. I didn't buy a sample pot so took a risk with the colour. When I put a few brush strokes here and there around the room I thought that I had made a huge mistake and that it would be too dark. However, it is not, it changes colour throughout the day light grey to stone and in the falling light it becomes a very cosy soft colour. It really is a beautiful colour and I would recommend it for any dining room. I have painted the ceiling and the picture rail to the ceiling in a brilliant white. March 1, 2014
lovely neutral colour, looks great against white and chemise Used interior wood paint for a bedside table. Lovely colour, didnt come up blue or green - ish. Looks lovely next to white bedding against a chemise wall. Only downside was the week it took to stop being 'sticky'. Used a roller so finish a bit bubbly. February 1, 2014
Perfect grey I have for a very long time been searching for just the right shade of grey, too grey looks like concrete at the other end of the scale you have lavender, not what I wanted, this is just right ... Feeling like goldilocks. Very happy January 28, 2014
Warmer grey Purbeck stone is a great addition to this colour scheme! It compliments cornforth white by bringing more warmth to my lounge. The tone changes during the day - it looks more grey in the daylight and has tones of beige/taupe at night. Accessories and upholstery in either grey or taupe will compliment the colour beautifully.

A stronger neutral which resembles the stone found in the Isle of Purbeck. Works perfectly with Ammonite™ and Cornforth White.
