This is a soft and slightly bluish grey, and is the colour most associated with painted furniture in an elegant French chateau and of an old Swedish manor house
It works like a dream with Old White of course but it looks great distressed over the lavender blue of Old Violet and one of our other favourites is Paris Grey over Cream or for somethiing a little stronger try it over Arles!
Add a touch of gilding, and the look is complete.

In contrast to the lightness of Cream on the left, the Old Violet used as a base makes Paris Grey look much dark. This is enhanced with dark wax
Cream underneath Paris Grey is a very gentle and sophisticated colour combination for the distressed French look
ADD OLD WHITE - to make 'Tokyo'Add 8 parts of Old White to 1 part of Paris Grey to make this mellow warm soft grey. It's called TOKYO because it's a colour you see in modern architecture but it's also perfect for painting French style furniture too.
