Is it grey? Is it beige? No – it’s a beautiful marriage of both, available in a wide range of tones and ratios. Whether it’s grey with a hint of beige or an almost-beige with grey undertones, greige paint is hard to beat for neutrality.
Whatever shade it is, greige is versatile, easy going and calming. It’s often nuanced, changing depending on how lighting differs in the same room. Also known as taupe paint, it’s usually warm but can be cooler as it moves further towards grey.
As a staple neutral, greige paint looks fabulous with whites or off-whites for a pared down feel. It also works very well with natural materials and colours – from pine and oak furniture to splashes of green from plants and flowers. Always versatile, greige can also enable you to use stronger, brighter colours. And because it offers less contrast than whites and off-whites, it actually allows you to tone things down.
The beautiful diversity of greige is reflected in the selection of greige chalk paint available at Frenchic. As well as a choice of fabulous tones, greige is available in several different ranges. Greige paint from our Lazy Range is self-sealing, while the Al Fresco Range has the added benefit of being weatherproof too. You can also choose from matching shades in our ultra-matt Chalk Wall Paint and soft satin Trim Paint. Or if you want a traditional chalk paint, go for a taupe paint in the Original Artisan Range.
Whether you’re painting walls, woodwork, furniture or even uPVC, our self-priming paints will minimise preparation. Rest assured, they’re low-VOC as well as UKCA and EN71-3 certified, so they’re safe to use on children’s toys.
