I believe that is Blue Gray up front? - And French Gray on the upper left wall?

Hey kaycin, I was looking at the paint chip booklet I ordered from them as well. Dix Blue is looking like a winner for a match. Try Oval Room Blue, too. Although the latter is pretty dark.

The F&B colors, because they're full spectrum paints, seem to have a chameleon-like feature of morphing into different shades depending on the light and surrounding trim, furniture, etc.

I agree with you that the color here looks different than even the French Gray shown on Farrow & Ball's website, however, I was told that this was indeed French Gray.It may be the photo and the lighting which can at times distort the appearance of paint colors. I will, however, double check with the project manager as soon as possible to confirm once again.

The PERFECT blue. I love the way the dark railing jumps off of it. So enjoy the pictures of your work- thanks!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Color becomes consistent As part of my research, I went to deepest Dorset, England to visit the headquarters of Farrow & Ball, founded in the 1980s when the English National Trust needed an expert to mix paints for its great houses in need of redecoration. Today Farrow & Ball paints, with terrific names like Clunch (from old slang for a chalk building block), Blackened (referring to when soot was used to make an off-white pigment with a silver tint), String, Downpipe and the startling Dead Salmon appeal to people wanting the colors in their sitting rooms to be just like the ones in British stately homes and then, sometimes, just a tad more eccentric. Before I went, I had a romantic image of the people at Farrow & Ball using many of the same pigments and ingredients that a 19th-century decorator would have used, but that is not the case. First of all, 19th-century decorators had to assemble the paint ingredients for themselves (as a young Irish immigrant noticed when he arrived in Brooklyn in the late 1870s, deciding there must be an easier way. His name was Benjamin Moore).Wall paint: French Gray, Farrow & Ball
