It doesn't just need to be F&B however I do like a lot of their colours. Need to repaint the sitting room but the paint we used is discontinued plus I fancy a change.
So far have bought two testers from Albany paints but the are too blue toned, was thinking about a grey green but not sure now.
Pics of room, 2 different colour sofas, dark floor and dark furniture. Room gets sun in the morning but it's our cosy room to use in the evening.
Any ideas welcome thanks

I am a big fan of F&B French Grey but Little Greene offers a similar colour in a variety of shades. So you can choose whether you want it lighter or darker LG French Grey Pale

French Grey Dark

I shouldn`t reveal this trade secret (wink) but if you go to a Crown Trade paint Centre with your Farrow and Ball colour, they can mix it up.

Pigeon by farrow and ball is a lovely grey green. it does have blue tones though.

Old white is a really pale greeny grey.

F&B French gray is definitely more green than grey. It's lovely though - I have it in my bedroom and en-suite. Old White can look different depending on light and decor. I have four rooms painted in it and it goes from greeny looking to beige depending where it is and what soft furnishings/carpet it is with.

We've recently gone for skimming stone. It's a pale warm griege (more beige than grey).

Thanks for the suggestions. Will get more testers. We have hardwick White on our kitchen units but wanted something different for the sitting room.I thought it might be to green and dark.

I have pigeon on a ceiling and it's beautiful. If looking for something lighter I also have drop cloth and slipper satin which have green/grey tones

Hardwick White is a fabulous green grey neutral with lots of depth,less green than f& b French Grey.
