When painted on walls, Smoke’s a shade for those who like bolder colour. It’s a deep grey with a cool, chalky tone - not quite as dark as our Charcoal shade, but still with lots of drama. Smoke has a subtle hint of blue so pairs lovely with Alpine and Powder Blue, but also warms up our grey colours like Shingle and Cobble. Pair it with our whiter neutrals like Shell, Salt or Snow to create a bold contrast.

Where we see it
Smoke makes a strong statement, so it’s great in social spaces like hallways and dining rooms. It’s also a good one for woodwork, with an earthier tone like Lead Light on the walls. Think of it as a modern twist on classic white woodwork.

Care & need to knows
Need to know
Sometimes our paint colours can be different from batch to batch. It’ll only ever be a very small difference (within 0.8%), but it’s something you should bear in mind if you’re painting several things the same colour in one room. Best to buy all the paint you need at one time and keep a spare bit handy for touch-ups. It also means that the colours in our paint books might be ever so slightly different too.
VOC: You might’ve heard of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) before. They’re chemicals that evaporate at room temperature, and you often find them in paint. They’re not great for your health though, so you don’t want too many. That’s why we keep the amount in ours as low as we can. Both our emulsion and eggshell finishes contain 2g of VOCs per litre, max. To put that in perspective, the EU limit is 30g per litre.
