The classic recipe for this colour usually used red and blue pigment. This makes a slightly colder tone than ours which we have deliberately warmed up by using red earth and black mixed with lemon yellow to give the blueness, our plant-based recipe is centred around protecting the planets’ finite resources. It makes for a really beautiful neutral which is completely timeless and equally at home on walls or woodwork.
We now offer this popular colour in three lighter shades. 60%, 40% and 20% lighter shades, to cover the use of this beautiful colour throughout the home.
I wanted to say thank you so much for your advice - very much appreciated and extremely helpful! I’ve just received the well packaged paint I ordered and have started painting the study in French Grey - it's the perfect colour and I’ll move on to Cinnamon in the hall and Trumpington in the cloakroom (couldn’t resist!). I think the dining room will be Clove…
