Grey is most definitely the ‘in’ colour this year. We looked at this in further detail in our ‘Kitchen Colour Ideas for 2014’ guide last month. It should come as little surprise, then, that when we decided to pick this month’s favoured colour for solid wood kitchens, we chose one of Farrow & Ball’s (not quite fifty) shades of grey: Pigeon.
Joking aside, there’s around twenty widely varying shades of grey in Farrow & Ball’s collection, and Pigeon sits somewhere between the blue undertones of Plummett and the lilac hues of Elephant’s Breath©. It has hints of green in warmer light, but looks like a true grey in the cool tones of natural winter rays or when under modern LED lighting.
We’ve placed Farrow & Ball’s Pigeon into our ‘Accents’ collection alongside Parma Gray and Hardwick White, which means it’s an ideal colour to pair with a lighter shade of white from our variety of ‘Pastels’. It also combines well with darker wooden kitchen worktops such as the exotic tones of our walnut, iroko or wenge, and is the perfect finish for our Shaker-style cabinet doors and drawer fronts.
If you’d like to witness the stunning grey-green tones of Pigeon in the ‘flesh’, we offer pre-painted kitchen samples in the form of miniature painted cabinet doors. They’re available for only £20 including delivery and are perfect for helping you decide on the ideal colour scheme for your space, whilst sampling the quality of our oak doors.
Alternatively, take a trip to our Gloucester showroom where you’ll find samples of all the colours in our range, along with nine themed kitchens that show off the inimitable quality of Farrow & Ball’s natural paints.
