Undertones: Yellow/Gray

Drop Cloth 283

This subdued gray – beige paint may appear more one colour than the other depending on the lighting and what other decorative elements you pair with it in your interior decorating project.

The colour of your trim and ceilings will also affect which way Drop Cloth leans in your space, more towards beige or more towards gray.

As you can see below, it’s when we start to look at comparisons to other colours, that it becomes very eye opening.

Color Comparison
Colour Comparison

When you look at a colour side by side with similar shades the differences become much more apparent. Elephant’s Breath, another gorgeous neutral by Farrow & Ball, has a pink undertone and Pavilion Gray definitely has a more gray undertone when compared to Drop Cloth.

It’s only when we compare colours that we can truly understand the tones and whether they lean more one way or another on the colour spectrum.

When I do Colour Consultations in a client’s home, I am always comparing colours so they too can easily see the differences.

When I hold my large paint boards up to a decorative element such as fabrics, wallpaper, or subway tile and then swap out one board with another board, it becomes much more clear as to which colour will work best.
