The Reviews

I wanted a grey that still had some personality to it as the main color for my home. This paint is so soothing, I love looking at how it's tone brings out more lilac depending on daylight. Note that if this is next to any yellows/creams, the purple gets brought out quite strongly. But it paid so well with any blues, greens, reds, etc. This is a lovely warming tone.

Backdrop paint is surprisingly good at covering up darkly painted walls, even without primer. I was also pleased that I really could cleanup floor spills with soap and water.
