FARROW & BALL French Gray
Farrow & Ball French Grey #farrowandballfrenchgray #frenchgray #paintcolor
FARROW & BALL French Gray: A soothing green grey. French Gray is really much more green than grey, but characterfully flits between the two depending on the light and time of day. Taking inspiration from French design and wallpapers used in the 19th century, it creates the most relaxed of rooms.

For a creamy limestone color, here’s a pretty one:

Beautiful French Grey Paint Color Ideas

BENJAMIN MOORE Ashley Gray is a color I painted walls in our French country kitchen at our prior home. Our kitchen received a ton of natural light from large windows which were left un-dressed, so do keep that in mind when selecting a calm color like this gray.

Benjamin Moore Ashley Gray HC-87. #benjaminmoore #ashleygray #benjaminmooreashleygray #paint #graypaintcolor
BENJAMIN MOORE Ashley Gray HC-87: Elegant and rich, this muted shade of gray has a slight olive tint that pairs well with satiny hardwood floors.

Here’s a wall paint color possibility for a serene or modern bathroom with a French inspired feel. BENJAMIN MOORE Revere Pewter is a paint I have used multiple times, most recently as a glaze (simply thinned with water) to transform our master bedroom furniture which formerly sported an antique white/pale yellow color.

Benjamin Moore - Revere Pewter HC-172. #benjaminmoore #reverepewter #benjaminmoorereverepewter #lightgraypaint
BENJAMIN MOORE Revere Pewter HC-172: A light gray with warm undertones, this classic shade creates a unifying look that calms and restores.
