Paint Colours

Welcome to what I hope will be an incredibly useful resource for anyone looking for Modern Country paint colours.

It's true! No longer do you need to agonise over tiny little paint chips, or take a second mortgage just to fund your sample pot fetish. 
{Yes, my friend, we've all been there.}

All the donkey work has been done for you. These are colours I've used and loved. Click on each image to be taken to an in-depth colour study for that particular shade, taking you through not just inspiring ideas for using that hue but also practical tips, with illustrated examples, sharing how each paint colour changes under different light conditions.

Could you recommend a good very light grey please? xx

Sarah @ Modern Country Style said...

A good, very light grey...hmmmm. SO many questions spring into my head! Are you looking for more of an off-white or a definite grey? Do you like cool or warm greys? Which colopurs does it need to tone with?

Email me...!

Love your colours Sarah, have just painted my daughters bedroom F a B Middleton pink..... Perfect,
Help need a colour for my dark north facing Hall,
has light oak doors and oak floor. Was thinking a light grey.....but welcome any other ideas. It's a cream colour at the moment..... It s just so dreary...

Think a light grey would look beautiful with the oak...have you thought of Purbeck Stone, F and B's new soft grey....see what you think.

Hi, I just came across your blog and am really enjoying it!
We just purchased a beautiful Victorian country home with very tall... pink walls.
I am a DIYer and am looking forward to the task of renovating the space. I love the palette presented here. My living room furniture is a contrast of both very dark and light - dark espresso leather couches with white fireplace and bookshelves. My living room has wainscoting (also painted pink!). Would the wainscoting painted white be too much of a contrast with a dark blue/grey/green wall, considering my couches are so dark?! Thank you for your opinion!!!

Sarah I would really welcome your guidance on a paint colour in our lounge. I have just purchased New Tetrad Eastwood Sofas which have a rich brown leather base and Kilim Chenille cushions. This is the only thing that we have bought, so anything is possible at this stage. though I do appreciate that the fabric on the sofas are quite loud. We have painted an old stone fireplace in Annie Sloane French Linen it has slate mantel.

Hi Sarah,
I had Joa (as in F&B Joa's White) visit for a consultation yesterday. I love their colours but reading many negative comments about their standard of paint (and many positive on Little Greene). How have you found F&B in terms of durability and wiping down?
Great blog by the way!
