House White

No. 2012  

House White 4.6 5 10 10
Best paint I've ever used This is the second batch of this paint I've purchased and have been delighted with the results on both occasions. Application is easy and the finish is excellent. Will always use Farrow & Ball paint from now onwards. 23 November 2014
Good for a white with a touch of light yellow This was slightly more citrussy than I had imagined but still a lovely colour. 05 October 2014
Mixed feelings... We used this colour for the surrounds on our front door and for the window ledges on the front of the house, to try and match some of the sand coloured brick work as much as possible. When it is a sunny day and the front of the house is facing the light, it looks a very nice off white with a hint of yellow. However, on a dull day or when the light has passed over the house I don’t think the colour is one of F & B's best. Of course it is a matter of personal opinion, but I think the colour looks a bit dated - a bit too much of a dirty yellow and a bit like the dreaded Magnolia! - and I wish we had perhaps gone for Lime White or Off White instead. All in all I would ensure if using this colour you buy a sample pot and try it out in all light conditions, as there is quite a difference between the colour in good strong light and low light. A positive though was that the finish is great, so I would say if you are just looking to paint a small area of masonry, you will be fine with Estate Eggshell, which means you don’t have to buy a 5l tin of masonry paint! 26 June 2014
Superb paint This is a lovely paint with a superb finish - we have a period property and I love the yellowed finish. We used casein distemper to allow the lime plaster walls to breathe. Hopefully it will wear well too. Fantastic company to deal with too - nothing too much trouble. 23 April 2014
Usual F & B quality Beautiful paint to use and consistent finish. A pleasure to work with and from previous use of this paint we know it is colour fast and wears well. Amazed how quickly the order was despatched and delivered. Thank you.l 09 March 2014
